10/27   Does Linux or BSD support CD to CD (I have a SCSI Plextor) burning?
        \_ Not that I know of.  I think you're best off reading the CD
           and then burning it.
        \_ Nothing prevents you from doing dd if=/dev/cdrom | cdrecord ....
           or cat /dev/cdrom | cdrecord ....
          \_ Have you actually tried this or are you just assuming this
             should work?
        \_ Dunno about BSD, but the Linux CD writing Howto claims that
           this is not possible for audio CDs:
        \_ The author of cdrecord suggests using readcd instead of dd .readcd is
           part of the cdrecord distribution. dd can't handle some special
           cases. It should be as simple is
           readcd dev=0,5,0 f=- | cdrecord ..
           which a correct dev option, though, I am not sure how reliable that
           is ..
           \_ readcd will fail if the CD is an audio disc.

10/27   I hate to say it, but you guys are not presenting any good evidence of
        worthwhile, anonymous motd posts. be more funny!
        \_ I agree with Paul.
           \_ I agree with RuPaul.
           \_ I agree with Austin 3:16.
                \_ Is that Paul guy dead yet, or am I being optimistic?

10/28   Is it possible to configure (x)ntpd to act as a ntp proxy? I want
        to have one machine for my local domain that recieves ntp request
        and then forwards them on to a real ntp server. I suppose I could
        write one, but I'd rather use a standard tool.
        \_ if you want that, just set up NAT.  But, ntpd is both a server
           and a client in one executeable.
        \_ To the best of my knowledge you cannot configure ntpd as an ntp
           proxy. Why don't you configure one (better two) computers in your
           local domain to be ntp servers and then have your clients get time
           from them. If you are paranoid you could block outgoing ntp traffic
           for computers other than your ntp servers. If you need some sample
           configuration files mail me. --twohey.
           \_ Can I just configure my system to be an ntp peer to a stratum 2
              server and serve that way, or do I need to get a gps etc?
              \_ Yes, but you want to get time from more than one higher
                 stratum server. Look at soda's ntpd.conf for examples.
