Berkeley CSUA MOTD
2000/1/22 [Uncategorized] UID:17290 Activity:nil
1/21    I think someone should report the
        write "Go stick your head in a pig" in as many
        languages as possible, if they have it

1/21    Can anyone provide some info (i.e., demand in market, salaries,
        future prospect, etc.) on Design, Product, and Application
        \_ There's no future in it.  One word: Plastics.

1/21    Somebody probably thought of this before.  Any reason why we don't
        have a 'vimotd'?  Make /etc/motd.public writable only by executing
        vimotd.  That way we won't get into this problem of several people
        fucking up each other's entries.
        \_ Then I can just run vimotd and lock anyone else out of changing
            the motd!
           \_ he didn't mention anything about locking.
                \_ Then how do you prevent others from changing the motd
                   at the same time?
        \_ VI here is implmeented as VIM.  Vim will tell you if the file has
           changed while you've been editing it.  This happens to me routinely
           (even while writing this!).  I yank the text that I added, re-edit
           the file, and paste the text back in.  Seems like we need a picomotd
           or emacsmotd. --emarkp
        \_ cvs checkout, modify, cvs commit (may need to do cvs update). --rich
