12/21   I Need A GOOD calander/schedule program for a company of a little
        over a hundred people (but growing fast).  We are willing
        (as it seems like it will be necessary) to change our mail server
        to whatever the Calandering program needs.  We have Unix, NT and
        even MAC servers I am open to any suggestions, but none of our
        Sys. Admins. (least of all me) have a huge amount of time to
        devote to getting it running.  Any suggestions? Thanks.   -crebbs
        \_ i've never tried it myself but ical (for unix) seems to be
           growing in popularity.  plus, i heard it works with palm pilots.
           if you can get something for tcl/tk or possibly java that would
           solve your multiple platform problems.
        \_ Get Exchange Server. -completely clueless idiot
                \_ Corporate Time <DEAD><DEAD> seems OK.  And you
                   don't need to change your mail program.  -tom
        \_ I believe both the netscape "groupware" stuff has some sort of
           calender support. But the "best" IMO is the lotus stuff.
                \_ ccmail is a piece of shit.  -tom
                   \_ true. but it does haev a non-m$ calendar prog, that is
                      semi-decent. And the upgraded one in notes is actually
                      pretty good.

12/21   Alarm over new 'smart' virus, NT, hits machines...

12/21   So does anyone know if the campus actually lost power due to the
        cogeneration test yesterday?  Or did it actually work the way it
        was supposed to? -icrew
        \_ There was no outage.  -tom

12/21   I'm looking for a good nation-wide ISP for a friend who is a non-
        techie.  I don't like AOL.  I have had good luck with IBM, they
        seemed pretty reliable, but I have heard that that division was
        sold to AT&T.  Does anyone know of any other good ones?  Thanks...

12/21   Hello, why does my secure shell client (SecureCRT) constantly drop
        its connection, even though I enabled a 55 second send of a space
        bar key press.  Any experience with more reliable winnt ssh clients?
        \_ That's not SecureCRT necessarily, it's probably either
           a) you have autologout unwittingly set in tcsh; add
              unset autologout to your .cshrc
           b) you're logging into a *?$#*$ linux box which logs you out
              every 10 minutes.. i cannot figure out for the life of me
              why some systems do this
           c) your firewall kills connections every n minutes and has a
              bad algorithm to determine why --dbushong
