6/4     From midnight-2am this Sunday, BBN Planet/West (formerly known as
        BARRnet) will work on UCB's Internet connection, so connectivity
        to/from soda from/to off-campus will be impacted. Mail to root@csua
        about this will be ignored.

6/5     People who missed out on last year's RMS vs. TCL/Perl Flamewar
        Extravaganza should hurry over to gnu.misc.discuss for this year's
        barnburner - FSF vs. the Linux community over
        GNU Emacs 19.31's renaming of the OS to "LiGNUx" in a shameless
        attempt to take credit for Linux's success.  Nostalgia buffs should
        watch for the little old lady from the early 80's Burger King
        commercials doing a cameo spot asking "Where's the HURD?"

6/4     Linux must die.  Any OS with a logo as cutesy as the one on
        doesn't deserve to live.
        \_ Hey!  That's almost as cute as snuggles!  -tawei
           \_  this is a fake!  The linux penguin is definitely not
        as cute as snuggy.  And it's snuggy, not snuggles.  -tawei
         \_ Besides, to make the linux pengiun look like that, you just
              have to put a herring in it's mouth - but to make snuggy
          happy, you have to stick tawei's cock up it's ass.

6/4     How is the prefesoor who is going to teach cs150
        next semester? I heard he is the hardest professor
        for 150. Is this true?
        \_ The guy is a great lecturer, and if you enjoy spending 140 hrs/wk
           on your projects, and hate it when a professor replies to the e-mail
           questions that you send, then he's perfect for you.

6/4     Louis Malle's "My Dinner with Andre" at UC.  Be there.  --tawei
        \_This is tomorrow, with Spalding Gray's "Monster in the Box".
          It's a definite must-see.

6/4     PLEASE OH PLEASE mount scotch!  Last time I edited my web page,
        I didn't have a beard, and Menudo were still in style.
        \_ it doesn't matter much since no one can access it anyway.
           be patient and someday scotch will be fixed.
           \_ I just want to be able to ftp my files onto UCSEE's web server
              so then people CAN access it.  Please mount it just so that
         we can remove our files.
              \_ We are not going to mount it until scotch is stable.
          As has been mentioned before, if you really really really
          need your files, mail root and someone will get them for
          you and plop them down on soda.       -lila
              \_ How about hacking up a ftpd that allows non-anonymous
          access to scotch to update files?  I could put together
          such a beast... -ERic

6/03    Looking to find a new place to live, moving in ASAP.
        If you think you might be able to live with me, please
        consult ~tmonroe/pub/apartment.  It makes it even easier
        if you have a vacancy in your place, but I'm doing a little
        looking of my own.  Thanx! -- tmonroe
        \_ you might want to put this in /usr/local/csua/housing

6/3     Does anyone have an extra SVGA card lying around? (16bit,ISA,vanilla)
        \_ Anyone have something like a 486/33 lying around that
        they're just dying to get rid of? Mail me if you do. -payam
1996/6/5 [Computer/SW/Security, Computer/SW] UID:31849 Activity:nil
6/3  Anyone know how i can change my local address with Sproul over
        the Web?  I know they have a page for address change form...
        anyone know what it is?
         \_ I think that you can only do it from their Bear Facts
            macs that are scattered across campus.  - sagarwal
           \_ You'd think they coulda spared a couple of IP addresses
              or something to give it it's own host/virtual host ...
         \_Actually DCNS is rather short of IP addresses and would
         rather not have to go buy another block from BBN/Planet
         until they absolutely have to, as the cost of them is going
         way up now that it's for-profit BBN and not the
         non-profit BARRnet running the connections
         Besides, why bother for a server that just says
         "Web access coming soon"?
         \_ They promised to make it accessible via WWW from
          any (campus ?) host but don't bet on it...
          \_ I would - the campus is pushing to get everything
          on the web - less headaches for them that way
