06/11   Go on, lick it.
        \_ Ooooooh, do it again!

6/11    ssh 1.2.25 installed, to fix the crc checking security hole.
        The update broke hushlogin support; I hacked sshd to fix the
        problem for now (~mconst/pub/ssh/sshd-hushlogin-patch), and
        I'm sending a bug report out soon.  Let me know if anything
        else goes wrong.  --mconst
        \_ so *why* is the patch ifdef'd for only __FreeBSD__ when it looks
           like there's nothing OS dependent in it?? -ERic
           \_ My patch doesn't mention FreeBSD, it was already there -- the
              ssh-1.2.25 login_cap code is all in #ifdef __FreeBSD__ blocks.
              What broke is that under FreeBSD, sshd would ignore .hushlogin
              The problem was that under FreeBSD, sshd would ignore .hushlogin
              files and just look at login.conf.

6/11    Any tips on how to get the most out of a car salvage deal?  My
        landlord wants to get rid of his (I think 70s era) Mustang.  New
        carburator, windshield intact, prolly bad clutch.  Best offer so far
        $50. -reeser
        \_ so is it totaled, or does it run or what? pick-a-part type places
            might give you more money. Or it might be worth more as a
            tax-writeoff to one of those charitable-type-institutions. -ERic

6/12    Which Brand/Model SCSI HD @ 18.xGB is most reliable?
        \_ You don't have many choices and they haven't existed long
           enough to say.  They're all being built by dollar a week
           near-slave labor in Burma.  What quality?

6/13    What's a good first book in the Fantasy genre to read? Something
        that's easy to read, and not too good that any subsequent books
        in the genre I read will pale in comparison.
        \_  The Hobbit is always nice, though long and tedious.
        \_ "not too good that any subsequent books . . . will disappoint"?
           Do you only go to certain movies, afraid that a wrong choice will
           spoil your movie-going experiences for the rest of your life?  Do
           you only try to date "average" people, in the event that you'll
           enter into a long-term relationship that you might leave someday?
        \_ D3Wd!!!1!  R3AD R0B3RT J0RDUN, CUZ H3"Z TH3 K00L3ST!!!1!!!!
           And afterwards you can use his books to start a home-weightlifting
           program!  Fun n' fitness!
