10/31   Due to lack of interest in organizing one, the 3rd Annual CSUA

        Season Finale at Nick's Place.  (You can still wear a costume
        there if you like though.)

10/28   This IMPORTANT sniffer information:  who does it effect
        and over what time period?  Do we have any more information
        on what a sniffer is, its scope, its limitations, and
        who the $%@#$*%&@#$*%&@#$ was doing it?
        \_ A sniffer is a program that listens to all packets transmitted
           over a network and records the more interesting ones (usually the
           first part of telnet, rlogin, & ftp sesssion, since that's where
           the account name and password are sent).  If your information was
           found in the logs that were recovered, you have been squished or
           talked to in person already.  If not, but you used computers on
           that network (godzilla.eecs, EECS/TCS staff machines in Cory,
           CS 150 computers) sometime in the last couple of weeks, we have
           no way of knowing who you are, but you probably still want to
           change your password anyway.  (PS: if you want real answers to
           questions in the future, you're much better off mailing
           help@csua than posting to the motd) -alanc-

10/28   Why aren't the web server logs mounted on soda? People do like
        to see who is accessing their web pages.
        \_ Try mailing root and asking them.  Most likely it's just something
           no one's bothered to do yet as part of the changeover.
        \_ I'll let you serve my logs baby
        \_ I wanna see who's accessing your web pages, too...

10/28   The San Francisco Book Festival's this weekend, if anyone's
        interested... it's generally lots of fun -- interesting authors, poets,
        book crafts, etc.  More information's at
        There's generally a nominal admission charge, unfortunately. --tabloyd
        \_ youll pay hundreds for dorky computer equipment which will be worth
           half its value in 6 months, but you complain about a "nominal"
             admissions charge to a book festival... :)
           \_You should hear me complain about computer equipment (which we
             hardly ever buy anyway!).  But I just thought people should be
             aware that there is an admission fee -- you also have to pay to
             buy any books, unlike at the ABA, where it's all free.  --tabloyd
              \_ fair enough! :)
