1/27    Since the CSUA meeting coincides with Da Bearz game, does anyone have
        an extra ticket to spare? I am looking to buy one for an unexpected
        visitor from out of town. Thanks. -dim

1/27    gnu as (gas) updated to version 2.2. It's not a perfect port, but it
        gcc updated to 2.5.8, supposedly the 'last' of the 2.5 line. (sheayah,
        right!) lemme know if it breaks anything.  -ERic
        gmu make is now updated to 3.70.  its /usr/local/bin/gmake.  -ERic

1/26    Is there a way to get the motd.public to pause when you log in.
         \_ No.  Go use UCLink you clueless twink.
         \_ Be nice to this user.  Here's the answer: do the following:
         chsh <loginname> /usr/local/bin/less
            It's that simple!
1994/1/28 [Academia/Berkeley/Ocf] UID:31471 Activity:nil
1/27    All you hosers who use Soda as a mail server/irc/mud multitasker
        could at least show some respect to the organization that provides
        such services by going to the meeting tonight.
        (Put at the bottom b/c they probably never read the motd.)
        \_ Why should I care about the organization?  They don't answer
           my root mail, or even provide the minimal level of support that
           the OCF does.  As for as I can tell, the CSUA should be dissolved
         \_ er, spelling error...
           and it's equipment given to OCF or UCLink.
           \_ give your account and just leave then.
           \_ Good, then get the hell off of this system so that it will
              run faster for the rest of us.
           \_ if you had read the readme which came w/ your account, you
              would know that soda is intended for people who know their
              way around UNIX and have a clue.
           \_ I would consider the help sessions a minimal level of supprort
        \_ Why should I keep using soda to compile my stuff if the damn
           C and C++ libraries are messed?!  It can't recognize half
           the stuff in the source code.  And I know that this code is
           correct since other people have gotten it to work...perhaps
           root should consider reorganizing and/or reinstalling them so
           that these things should compile like they're supposed to.
         \_ Dynix uses old pre-ANSI cc and BSD 4.2 libraries
          Root can't change what we have been given.
              \_ Compared to the OCF, soda's libraries work perfectly!
                 \_ This is not true.  But, if there's a problem, go
                    compile your stuff somewhere else.
          \_ Grab software off the net and compile it on both soda
             and the OCF - you'll have any easier time on the Apollo's
             with their ANSI-C & POSIX complinace than the ancient
             BSD 4.2 stuff soda is stuck with.
        \_ Or maybe you should be compiling your projects on machines
           meant for such things, like Cory or Ara!  That way soda
            will be faster for things that its meant for.
              \_ Like mudding.
        \_ SHEESH. lame people. understand that soda isnt something that
           is owed to you, the people who run it are doing us a service
           that they dont have to do. they are doing the best they can,
           and I think it is pretty awesome. If you dont like the services
           or need something else, GO ELSEWHERE WHERE YOUR NEEDS WILL BE
              MET, or stop bitching.
