7/19    Anyone know how to FTP through this goddamn SSH?
        \_ easy!  ssh to soda.  run keyinit and key with the appropriate
           arguments to generate a list of keys for use with s/key.
           when you try to ftp into soda next time, it will ask you
           for a key correspongind
           for a key corresponding to the appropriate sequence number,
           enter it, and you're in.
        \_ thanks for the info but i'm still confuzed.  i did keyinit
           and obtained a sequence of 4 letter (all caps) words.
            when I cuteFTP in, what password do i use?  secred word or Unix
        password or the 4 cap letter words?  i want to be able to upload
        stuff from my win 95 PC to my soda account.

7/18    What do you guys think about and its advertisements?
                \_ i like their coverage of
        \_ SOMEONE has  a LOT of money to burn on their little startup...
        \_ Funny adds, but pointless.  Probably more designed to hype
        the company to fleece people come IPO time then create a viable

7/18    Wow, has anybody seen this: "We use Pentium Pro computers running
        the BSDI UNIX operating system with Apache Web server software."
        that's from a site deticated
        to providing Windows 95/98/NT shareware. Why aren't they running IIS?
        \_ Even Microsoft's not stupid enough to run IIS/NT - both Hotmail
           & portions of MSN run on Unix (FreeBSD & Solaris) boxes with Apache
           \_ Apparently's front end (those static pages with
              pictures and ads) is served by NT/IIS while their backend
              Oracle database search engine is ran by Sun Solaris. When
     went down MS decided to release a press statement
              boasting how the backend went down but not the front end.
              This is not surprising since the front end isn't really
              responsible for much and I bet ebay chose Solaris over NT
              for good reason.
              \_ So when someone's front end NT/IIS goes down does M$ release
                 a press statement saying it's their front end that geos down?
                 \_ Of course they don't, or else their PR dept will be very
                    very busy everyday.
        \_ Microsoft's employees' webpages are served by a separate entity
        that uses that solution.  Yep, Ebay's site went belly up when the
        Sun big iron (E10000) went belly up.  Ebay and Sun were pointing
        fingers at each other for the cause of the problem.  Something about
        some OS patches they didn't install.
        \_ Here is some good reading for those of you have time to blow. It's
           somewhat biased but I personally think it's written fairly (unlike
           LINUX" comments).  Most of it is well written, lots of links, and
           only the graphs lack explaination.

7/18    EWS discussion deleted. Not computer related - tom, or any one
        of the stick-up-the buns motd censor folks...
        \_ you are really a fucking asshole.
        \_ you are really a <deleted> <deleted>.
        \_ you are really a mm-kaying bunshole.
        \_ I didn't realize that the motd was for computer related
           discussions only.  Did I miss something?

7/19    Where can I find the program that optimizes my Win95 TCP/IP stack?
        I forgot the name of the program (that modifies my registry). PLEASE,
        don't say "format HD, install Linux" or something to that effect. Thx!
        \_ I think I remember some programs in that let you
           do this.  It's not hard to find but all it does is modify
           you network registry settings (MTU, timeout values, TTL crap,
           etc...)  You can pretty much do the same thing by using regedit.
           -- linux user.
                    PC so I can cut
        \_ Could you be talking about:
        \_ I think you're talking about
        \_ format HD, install FreeBSD
                \_ install NT. preconfigured foor optiomal internet speeds!
