8/26    How do you get fetchmailrc to retrieve mail from uclink4 using
        ssh?
        \_ how's about "ssh uclink4 -L 9660:uclink4:110 -f" then have fetchmail
           POP to port 9660. -nick
                \_ You're tool cool.
           \_ If you don't do "-L 9660:localhost:110" then you're traffic
              will still go out on the local uclink4 network unencrypted.
                                                                -randal

8/26    "I have a problem with extracting from a .tar file.
        When I archived it,
        \_ Use gnu tar.
        \_ you should finish your question.
                tar xvf foo.tar to extract files
                tar cvf foo.tar foo to archive directory foo into foo.tar
                tar xzvf and czvf will handle tar.gz files.
           \_ I would have finished my sentence, but
                \_ I think the best bet is if you
                        \_ Yeah but that won't work becau"

        \_ Let me complete the part of the question that was deleted by
        someone.
                I unthoughtfully archived from the root directory using
                "tar", but now I am under a different directory system and
                I am not root. So I have trouble extracting from the archived
                file. Could anyone please suggest a solution? Thanks!
                \_ give more details (do you have root access on this new
                   machine? what error msgs are you getting? why are you
                   trying to archive starting at the root directory and
                   untaring it to another machine.  From the info you put
                   above no one can help you and will only make fun of you
                   like the cock sucker below.
                \_ You don't have to be root to untar the damn file.
                   untar it somewhere else.  Wanting to write to the
                   root directory w/o root access is NOT a tar question.
                   But it makes sense that you don't have root access.
                   People w/o a clue shouldn't have root access.
                   \_ He's asking how to untar it somewhere else, you idiot.
                      \_ No, you moron.  He meant root directory on a
                         different system.

8/25    Where the hell did all my mail go?  i had 300 messages in my inbox
        and it's all gone! freaking pine...can't they just leave the god
        damn program the way it was?
        \_ try reading the official motd
                \_ I think he's a troll.  Gotta be.  No one could possibly
                   be this stupid.
                   \_ i often find myself in situations where i say this,
                      and i am invariably proven wrong...  people are always
                      more stupid than you can possibly imagine.
        \_ I win.  I had 1045 messages in my inbox.
                \_ I deleted roughly 9500 messages yesterday.

8/25    Have you been getting a lot of flats (that's bike tires), lately?
        I'm wondering if it's just me.  I just bought a pair of "Mr. Toughy"
        belts for $14 that're supposed to prevent thorn flats.
        \_ If you're riding in the hills, the puncture vine is rampant due
           to all the rain we got.  Look out for a low, sprawling plant
           with a central purple flower and burrs; those things are
           deadly.  Mr Tuffy might help, but I hate how they ride.  -tom
                                             \_ yah, at least I'm getting
                                                a workout now

        \_ Perhaps you could make it readable?
                \_ It's a security clearance required company.  You'll be
                   able to read it if you need to know, which you don't.

            \_ You seem to enjoy cock sucking very much.  Why don't u
               suck mine.  I will stick it up your ass for free too.

8/26    What the hell is going on with the SPAM!?
        Either finger is open, or there's some sellout has given our logins
        to some religious freak group on the net...
        \_ apparently the return address is real, BOMBS AWAY!!!!
        \_ Actually, I sold your login to the religious freak groups in hopes
           of raising some extra cash (money's been a little tight lately,
           since yermom doesn't have the drawing power she used to . . . )
                \_ Rumor has it that she's gone in for that new pussy
                   tightening surgery.  Only time will tell.

8/26    ssh 2 now released -jon (usu place, usu way) -jon
        \_ Damnit, i just finished installing the old one on my computer.
           you should have told me sooner.
       \_ local mirror?  And what new features/security holes doe sit have
          that we should be upgrading it to for?
          \_ I had trouble getting to the ftp site since net to finland
             is a little slow.  It implements the ssh2 protocol which is
             on the IETF standards track.  read comp.security.ssh for
             more info --jon
             \_ I'm sure. So is there a local copy here you're willing to
                share?
        \_ You want to upgrade your client so you can talk to new ssh2 servers,
           but don't want to upgrade your servers until everyone has the new
           client as they don't play nicely with older clients.
        \_ ssh 2 server can serve ssh 1 clients, sort of.  You keep
           sshd1 around, and ssh 2 can call it, if it's configured to.
