10/24   Are there any public SMTP server we can use? I don't want to
        shell out $20 for an ISP just for an SMTP server. thx.
        \_ use localhost sendmail daemon.  works for me.
        \_ How do you get Internet access?  This will likely give you some
           SMTP server.  (Or run Unix on your own computer and be your own
           SMTP server.)
            \_  somehow i doubt it's very likely that people using mail tools
                which require a nonlocal relay would be running unix themselves
                \_ Hence the suggestion, you see.
                   \_ ^would be running^would have the clue necessary to run
                      \_ Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.
        \_ Yeah, I have the same problem.  Use two ISPs, both of which I
           don't pay for - sibling's ISP account and friend's college account.
           Both of which refuse e-mails where the From: line isn't in the
           right domain.  For me the alternatives are to cough up the $ or
           live on elm. :-/  Probably the latter.
                \_ You don't need to run Unix to be your own SMTP server.
        \_ You cheap bastards.  Get your own ISP account.  Sheesh.
        \_ Just forge mail, it's easy
           \_ not without an SMTP server.
           \_ You know, to add to the fun, there's been some suggestion that
              ISP's block outgoing tCP/25 from their dialup netblocks to all but
              their own smtp server, to keep people from dialing in and spamming
              directly.

10/25   The next book of Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" is out....
        \_ How much does it weigh?
           \_ Less than a fool's wrath?  It's not as large as the previous
              two.

10/25   Please update  ~dbushong/bin/infocal to reflect spring '99 or at
        least allow for a command line option to specify the semester.
        \_ Why don't you write to dbushong about this?  -- infocal #12 fan
           \_ or why don't you read the usage to see what the command line
              option (which is already there) is.

10/25   Can someone explain why after trying to exterminate these no good
        American Indians that took **our** land, we are now giving
        them a chance to get rich w/ the stupid Indian Casinos? Why do
        we give a danh about their self reliance?
                   \_ what does danh have to do with this?
                        \_ "If you have to ask..."
        \_ what does danh have to do with this?
        \_ This is the most odd troll I've seen in months.  Indians took
           what land from who?  You're broken.  Seek help, troll.
           \_ um, it's not a troll.  it's called "sarcasm".  look it up.
           \_ What part of "sovereign nation" don't you
              understand? - danh
                \_ I know what sarcasm is.  Racism and other forms of
                   stupidity and hatred are so common on the motd I figured
                   this was just one more.  This wasn't sarcasm.
