10/24   IMPORTANT!   A sniffer was caught using one of the Cory Hall
        machines to get passwords to accounts on soda.  He sniffed net
        connections from the 240 subnet to soda and elsewhere.  Please
        change your password if there's any chance your account
        was compromised!

10/21   WWW.CSUA (aka ftp.CSUA) is mostly working now, but there are still
        a few glitches to work out.  The rest of the bugs will be ironed
        out over the next few days.

10/20   /usr/local/bin/perl currently points to perl 4.036.  Sometime
        on or shortly after 11/1/1996 it will point to perl 5.003.  You
        have until then to make your scripts perl5-compatible or change
        the first line to "#!/usr/local/bin/perl4"

10/28   Has anyone who requested an absentee ballot received it yet?  I'm just
        wondering when we're supposed to get them by, as I thought they had to
        be returned *before* the election.... --tabloyd
        \_ you should have gotten it already.  my roommate got hers at least
           last week, maybe week before last, i forget.  --lila
        \_ The registrar is screwed up.  I requested mine weeks ago and haven't
           received it.  Now I'm in Washington DC on a business trip, our
           nation's CAPITAL, through election day, and can't vote, and I'm
           in Washington DC.  What the hell.  -kmanoj
         \_If anyone else hasn't received their absentee ballot,
           call the registrar and they'll send you out another one;
           you can also vote @ your polling place otherwise.  This won't
           help kmanoj, but maybe someone else... --tabloyd

10/27   Is there a way to read Macintosh formatted disks on a PC using
        win95 or NT?

10/27   Hey!  It's our own cdaveb!  On the back page of the Business/Technology
        section of the Sunday SF Chron/Ex!  Go buy a copy now!
        \_ Was she cute?
           \_ Yes, and so is her husband. -- Marco (-8
           \_ She was interviewed, not pictured, since unlike sexist pigs
         such as you, others realize she is an intelligent person with
         something interesting to say, no matter what she may or may
         not look like.  -- a soda male who has no idea what she
         looks like, but knows what type of person she is via walls
         \_ No one in real life is like they are on walls.
         \_ Speaking from experience, she has poor taste in cuisine,
            art, and music, and her technology skills are rudimentary
            at best.  - psb
          \_ "Speaking from experience"?  Are you courting my
           wife? - Mr. cdaveb
         \_Partha's just jealous he isn't in the paper
         \_ If style, grace, charm, wit, social skills, and technology
          skills summed to a constant, I would fear Mr. Psb as
          a programmer.  Gee, Cari managed to graduate and
          get a real job in under four years. -ekim
           \_ and partha is our resident Martha Stewart
            \_ partha, go pick on the xcf instead.  leave
               cari alone.  --chris
            \_ cuisine, art & music are all personal preference - what
          you consider poor, others may love - and at least
          she's not afraid of computers, she may not be an
          expert, but learning UNIX, perl, html, etc.
          makes her much more computer-literate than
          99% of americans
          \_ Unfortunately, this is not a difficult achievement
           \_ for csua members, no - go hang out with
              people in the real world - non-technical
              types and realize just how stupid the
              average american really is these days
             \_ neither is having more clue than partha

10/26   Pager found in the office -- it's a black Motorola/PageNet model.
        Stickers on the back say "800 087 4831" and "313 9046".  Alphanumeric
        display, arrow keys, and a little belt-clip holster thingie.  Claim
        it in the CSUA office before I go to dinner (~6:00pm) or contact me
        if it's yours.  -- tmonroe
1996/10/28 [Computer/SW/Languages/Java] UID:31964 Activity:nil
10/26   Hi all.  I'd like to solicitate your valuable opinion and interest
        on whether or not we should attempt to obtain Java sources from
        Sun under an educational-use license agreement.  I have dl'ed and
        placed a copy of the agreement in ~cmlee/pub/java for your perusal.
        The source is to be used for porting it to soda's Dynix platform.
        But a secondary benefit would be for CSUA members to gain first-hand
        knowledge to how Java is implemented and such.  -- cmlee
        \_ Sure..why not...  it'll give us something to play with...
        \_ Hell ya!  There is no better man page than the source. --ari
        \_ Port to Ultrix too while you're at it, and you'll have several
         CS dept. professors loving the CSUA once they can run it
         on EECS instructional computers.
         \_ Forget Ultrix - MKLinux!
