5/7     i need on info on cal football season ticket.  go bears!!!
        \_ You can buy one at the athletic ticket office on Fulton (the
           old UC extension building).  It costs about $150 for the
           general public, about $50 for students.  -tom

5/6     /usr/local/bin/premail is installed.
        It connects to the "nym" remailer.
        It requires pgp2.6 to work.
        The nym server uses a 2048 bit key.
        Ours only supports 1024 bit keys.

        Pick your RSA key size:
            1)   512 bits- Low commercial grade, fast but less secure
            2)   768 bits- High commercial grade, medium speed, good security
            3)  1024 bits- "Military" grade, slow, highest security
        Choose 1, 2, or 3, or enter desired number of bits: 2048
        Generating an RSA key with a 2048-bit modulus.
        --I dont know who the fuck you are, but 1) you didnt mail root
        and 2) you arent even smart enough to read the fucking directions
        that pgp gives you on a fucking silver platter.  --Jon
        \_ Valium, homeboy.  He probably meant that pgp supports a
           maximum 1024 bit keylength.  -John
                \_ but it doesn't.
                   \_ Yes, I know that, and you know that, but it didn't
                      show up in the options and he was probably tired
                      and didn't think that far.  No reason to go apeshit.
                                                        -John "fuck"
                        \_ wierd. tried again, it worked now. BUt it
                           failed before, complaining aobut keylength.
        \_Why is soda stuck on 2.6.2?  PGP 5 is available for *NIX, with 6
        available within the month.  6 supports 4096-bit keys, which if you
        read Cryptonomicon (Neal Stephenson's new book) is secure for 100 years
        and may even be suitable to keep secure until men are no longer
        capable of evil! (forever).  As far as I know, the book does not have
        a protagonist who attended UCB in the 90's and studied CS (as snow
        crash did) --cody

5/6     Question for @home users:  Is your setup something like this

        cable wire -> cable modem -> setop box -> TV
                           |_ pc

        Do you get a choice of cable modems to choose from or it just comes
        with one?  How about the setop box?  Thanks.  Just trying to find out
        more (@home web site doesn't go into that much detail).
        \_ It's like:

        cable wire -> setop box -> TV -> cable modem (from tv out)
                                           |_ pc
        so this way you can watch the bits go by like in the Matrix.  See
        the net in real time the way it was meant to be seen, not the fantasy
        you're living now.
        \_ mine (and every one ive seen) goes like this
                and they supply the modem and you get what they give.. -shac
                cable -> splitter -> filter -> cable modem -> pc
                                  |-> tv (or set-top box)
        \_ mine (and every one ive seen) goes like this and they supply
           the modem and you get what they give.. -shac cable ->
           splitter -> filter -> cable modem -> pc |-> tv (or set-top
        \_ Well we get cable radio, so we have two separate jacks;  I
           use the radio one for my cable modem.  -John
