5/24    A 'reasonably fast' OCF machine? Are the rumours that there is one true?
        \_ We just got a new 68040 and we're still waiting for our big IBM
         machine.  Of course mailing staff@ocf would get you more
         reliable info than soda's motd.
         \_ That is not true. There is no more reliable source
            of information than the soda motd.

5/23    Anyone looking for a place in San Jose this summer and beyond?
        If so, contact jules@soda. Leave a message at 510-649-1208 ASAP.
        I may already be settled by tomorrow.
        \_ I might need it but not 100% sure yet.  When do you need answer?

5/23    Does anyone know what VMS is? / Why any school would want use it?
        \_ Isn't there a VMS instruction on the VAX-11?  Remind me
           if I'm wrong, but did they remove the UNIX opcode? -ali
        \_ Oh, and VMS is a VAX operating system. -ali
        \_ Could be worse... it could be MVS...
         \_ How can one not know what a VMS is?! H0ZERS!
        \_ There are some nice features in VMS.  But then, the only VMS
         command I regularly use is "telnet" - alanc
        \_ Go CMS!!!!

5/23    It seems that C&S have an account now at CRL. This brings them
        into the CSUA web of influence and control. wheeee
        \_ What's C&S? \_ Preemptive "Get a clue" included here.
        \_ But no more netcom for them!  Doesn't matter: no water ads yet
        \_ Get a Q, not a Qlue... C&S = Canter and Siegel, assholes
        \_ Hmm...Green cards must not be profitable these days for them to
           go into the thigh cream industry (:
        \_ the CRL admins know about them, and WILL squish them when/if they
           step out of line.
           \_ I believe they should be preemptively squished. BTW, what is
              the CSUA <-> CRL connection? Also, where does NAMBLA and the
              Trilateral Commission fit in? -gojomo

5/23    rc and rx removed from /usr/local/bin. If you use it, tough. Try
        zmodem or kermit instead.  -hob
        \-coincidentally, /usr/local/bin/rc installed. this is a lean and mean
        shell which is destined to be the "sh" for plan 9. it's really the
        shell for purists and snobs. clean and swift and small and simple --psb
        \_ Why the fuck was it removed?
         \_ It was being used for Communist infiltration.  Deal.

5/23    Hyper marked-up perl man page is accessible through
        ~cmlee/public/htperlman.  -- cmlee

5/22    Congratulations to our graduates: dpassage, seidl, and pld
        \-I would like to extend my congratulations as well, but I feel
        this does not belong in the motd.official. Other CSUA members also
        happen to have graduated and it just smacks of some kind of exclusivity
        to stick congrats to some in the official motd. anyone who wants to
        congratulate anyone else can add something to the motd.public. --psb
        \-congrats to vctoria and sc too, even if they are not "ours" --psb
         \_ don't forget amee, even if she is graduating from
            a lame school
          \_ don't forget cgd either!!
           \_ Ignore != forget
        \_congrats to myself too, for surviving another f'ing semester -lars
        \_Congratulations to our graduates: dpassage, seidl, and pld

5/22    Can anyone recommend a really good book, an authority on Novell
        Networks and LANs?  I need a good blow job.  Thanks.-- daronk
