7/13    Scotch will be coming down tonight.  Expect disruption in CSUA service
        between 7pm and wheneverweactuallyfinish.  We don't intend on bringing
        soda down for more than a few minutes to rotate it in the rack (so
        that it cooks evenly).  Probability of list disruption will be high.
        Office accounts will be unavailable.  Njh will be piss drunk. - jvarga
        \_ 7/14 Soda is back up, scotch is back up, lists are down, office
                accounts are down.  We're working on things, but I have to be
                up at 6am for work. - jvarga
        \_ 7/15 Office accounts are working again after much mudwrestling with
                all systems involved.  Debian mirror and other services on
                screwdriver are back up.  Send booze to root. - jvarga
        \_ 7/24 Just realized that soda's FTP was being mounted off of scotch
                (wtf?) and that's the cause of people's complaining.  Am
                looking at possible solutions.  Please be patient. - jvarga
        \_ 7/24 Lounge machines should be working again for the most part.

Root is planning to swap out scotch.CSUA for a newer machine in the next few
days as part of planned server upgrades.  Scotch serves DNS, NIS for the
office, mailing lists, and is soda's backup mail server.  During the
downtime, some or all of these services will be unavailable.  The length of
the outage depends on our luck, but we hope to have everything back
available within a few hours with as little disruption as possible.  Note
that the soda motd will continue to be as troll-filled as usual.

Additionally, the scotch replacement will bring in phase 1 of the new soda
upgrade.  We will be unifying soda logins and office logins (but not home
directories), which means that I will be pulling the password database off
of soda to serve as the master list for office logins.  This means that if
you have an office account, your office password will be the same as your
soda password. If you did not have an office account before, this change
will not grant you an office account.

The exact date and time of this switchover will be announced soon.  Please
direct all questions/comments/concerns to root.

7/13    Dear German John, I'm learning German and it's a lot of fun. Grammar
        is very similar, and some words are similar. However, I have problem
        pronouncing certain words, like (how you spell in English)
        "IcHHHH SpriHHHHHen NicHHHHt English" probably cuz I don't normally
        use the throat often. In fact, I find that after only 20 mins of
        practicing, my throat gets really dry. Is this normal, or am I
        using my throat the wrong way? Danke Deutche John.
        \_ Drink a lot of hefeweizen and smoke some stinky eurofag cigarettes,
           the next morning you'll get that special born & bred in der
           teutonic vunderland hockaloogie sound.  -John
           \_ Are you serious this works? I tried it but my throat
              sound is still weak. I want to sound very throaty like those
              speakers on my language CD
              \_ You don't have to sound throaty. My german relatives never
                 had that deep throat thing. It varies by region too. They were
                 from Bavaria.
           \_ So is it better to use lots of throat or little throat? Just
              as I don't want to learn Ebonics English, I also don't want
              to learn German that sounds low-class. I do like the idea of
              using a lot of throat. It sounds aggressive, persuasive,
              somewhat charming, and really gets your attention. In
              another word I really like the way Hitler talks even though
              I disagree with his methods.
              \_ He was Austrian.  They've got more of a jolly rolling vowel
                 thing than an "ACHTUNG, ZE PANZERS ARE ROLLING" accent.  Same
                 with Bavarians, but they have sort of an edge to it--like they
                 can get the entire Hofbrauhaus to jump up and go invade
                 Poland.  Scotch & Sodas, Los!  -John

7/13    Soda is back up, and the rest of the servers are slowly being brought
        back.  We're fixing lots of errors on all machines.  We'll keep you
        all posted.  - jvarga
        \_ DikuMUD doesn't work anymore. Can you please restore it, or if
           you can't find it at least install a new version? I'd like to
           start as level 29, one level before immortal. Thanks jvarga!
        \_ Office accounts are going to be dead until I can figure out why the
           *(#)&^*)#$ debian doesn't like netgroups.  Anyone with insight on
           this, please email me/root.  Thanks.  - jvarga

              obligatory alumni bitchfest?

                 I appreciate the work being put in for little reward.  -mice
              \_ Perhaps most of us are used to the trials and tribs of this
                 sort of thing.
        \_ Awesome, thanks.  But when do we get new soda?
           \_ This is the first step to getting new soda online.  But in the
              interim, new soda needs to stop doing things like playing the
              "OS not found" game on boot, and tell me why sshd is dead.

7/14    Cost Guard building a bio-diesel boat:
        http://www.uscg.mil/hq/uscga/newsstoriesread3462.htm
        \_ Something's wrong, the whole point of biodiesel is that it
           works as a replacement for petroleum diesel without any
           modifications.  This seems like PR spin.
           \_ Isn't biodiesel a lot cruddier?
              \_ I believe it has a little bit less energy per unit volume,
                 but has better lubricating properties.

        that could generate gravity waves did have some info I didn't
        know about (apparently gravity waves have been detected indirectly
        by observing the rate of change of the orbits of a binary puslar
        and seeing that the change is exactly the amount that would be
        caused by radiating energy in the form of gravity waves).

        candy and toys yesterday, killing 27 people, including 18 children and

        http://csua.org/u/cpn (boston.com)
        \_ It's odd that they didn't include "1 US soldier" in the "including"
           list.
        \_ Yeah, I saw that, just in case you thought for a millisecond that
           these suicide bombers weren't total human slime.
           \_ Just read an interesting article reinforcing the point that
              (a) the "western world"'s response to "terrorism" (no you can't
              fight terrorism, it's neither a group nor an ideology, just a
              method) is self-defeating, as it undermines what sets "us" apart
              from "them", and more significantly, that (b) it's being seen
              as fighting criminal incidents while "they" are seeing this as no
              less than a global war.  Now if someone can come up exactly with
              who "they" are, we win.  -John
        \_ It's just upsetting beyond words.
        \_ There's probably a surat that says somewhere that innocent
           children killed in jihad, go directly to heaven.  I'm not
           saying it's cool, but it's the justification their dark overlords
           use.
        \_ My acquaintance serving in Iraq said that there were always many
           threats directed against kids that accepted gifts from American
           soldiers.
        \_ The main thing I'm concerned about is whoever was stupid enough not
           to think suicide bombers would kill children too.  Duh.  Everyone
           manning those two humvees that wasn't guarding an angle is
           partially responsible.  Yes, you don't have to tell me that the
           suicide bomber is ultimately responsible.
           \_ You're an idiot.
              \_ You're the idiot, idiot.
                 \_ "Everyone manning those two humvees that wasn't guarding
                     an angle is partially responsible." That's quite
                     possibly the dumbest thing ever written on the motd
                     and that's saying a lot.
                     \_ Your new post still doesn't suggest to me that you're
                        not an idiot.  Give it a rest.  You think I'm saying
                        something that I'm actually not saying.
                        Let me spoon feed it to you.  Remember that story a
                        couple days ago about how a lot of recruits got blown
                        up by a suicide bomber while waiting in line?
                        Those recruits were protected by tall concrete
                        barriers.  The suicide bomber was dropped off at a
                        gap in the barriers, where he squeezed through and
                        blew up.  In the same vein, whoever was responsible
                        for setting up that barrier system is partially
                        responsible for those deaths.  And ... you don't need
                        to tell me the suicide bomber is ultimately
                        responsible.
                        \_ Your utter ignorance of military tactics and
                           situations combined with your uniquely retarded
                           method of assigning blame labels you a complete
                           and total idiot.
                           \_ Like I said, you still think I'm saying something
                              that I'm not saying.  I still haven't quite spoon
                              fed it entirely to you, yet, though.
                              Has it occurred to you that, "Everyone manning
                              those two humvees that wasn't guarding an angle",
                              might actually equal 0 individuals, especially
                              in the context of the sentence preceding that
                              one?
                              \_ Seriously, man -- you need to do a little
                                 more research before you can sound off in a
                                 convincing manner.  You really are showing
                                 a lack of knowledge about the situation on
                                 the ground.  The other guy is being kind of
                                 abrasive (to put it mildly), but he does
                                 have a point in there somewhere.
                              \_ Dude, you're a putz and not worth my
                                 time. Reread what you wrote and not what
                                 you think you wrote.
                                 \_ I already did, and you obviously haven't
                                    gotten the point yet or are trolling.
                                    Thanks for nothing, buddy.
                                    If you really want to be serious you could
                                    take a poll on whether the ideas I put
                                    forward are "possibly the dumbest thing
                                    ever written on the motd", but I think you
                                    already have doubts about what the results
                                    would be, and would just say, "You're a
                                    putz and you're not worth my time".
                                    putz and not worth my time".
                                    \_ You're both fucking putzes.
                                       \_ Not sure about that, but you've added
                                          yourself to the list, although you
                                          should be credited for being succinct
                        \_ Why don't we go right to where the real fault lies?
                           To the parents of the people who got blown up.  If
                           they hadn't procreated in the first place, then
                           there wouldn't even be someone to get blown up!

7/14    Since the penis is erected by the pressure of one's blood, do people
        with high blood pressure have harder penes when erect?  Do drugs
        treating high blood pressure make the erece penis less hard?
        \_ no
        \_ Why don't you ask yermom?
        \_ No, especially since lots of people with high BP have poor
           circulation in their extremities, including their member,
           making it harder to have an erection.
           \_ Thanks.  So high blook pressure is not "high throughout all
              blood vessels".  I thought since blood is just a liquid, the
              pressure had to be the same everywhere within the same liquid
              body.
              body since the body is not that big and bloodflow is not very
              fast.
              \_ Remember that the body is, at best, trying to create a
                 state of equlibrium (in this case, getting oxygenated blood
                 to the various cells); high blood pressure results when
                 there's something preventing the blood from effectively
                 reaching the cells (arterial clogging, a large wound, etc.).
                 In other words, the fact that you have high BP means that
                 you are almost certainly NOT getting enough blood in your
                 extremities (including your penis). As my EMT instructor
                 put it, it's all about pump (heart), pipes (arteries), and
                 fluid (blood).

7/14    ok conservative pigfuckers, why does it matter whether valerie
        plame authorized her husband going to Niger to report
        selling yellowcake?  How does this affect whether Rove should
        be punished for revealing she has been a deep undercover
        agent for the last 20 years?
        \_ Because everything is politics.  There is no right and wrong.
           If you make everyone look equally sleazy, you can get away with
           anything.
        \_ there's an article on Salon I think today from sid blumenthal
           saying that Wilson's wife never authorized the trip, and in any
           case was not in a position to even authorize it.  also I agree
           that who cares who authorized the trip?  Does anyone remember
           Ed "pig biting mad" Anger? - danh
           \_ They don't care if anyone actually believes. They're just trying
              to spread FUD.  Don't buy into it.
        \_ I'm not a pigfucker, but I'll give it a go.  No one is saying that
           Plame authorized the trip.  My understanding is that Rove was
           saying to Cooper, "don't pay attention to this Wilson guy, because
           he only got the trip because his wife's in the CIA".  We now know
           that Plame *did* recommend her husband.  I've never seen his report
           (which Wilson claims showed that Iraq had not been looking for U in
           Niger).  The point is, Wilson has already been shown to be a lying
           sleezeball.  It doesn't look like Rove really did anything wrong.
           \_ Who cares about Wilson.  No matter what happened (And I think
              your whole Wilson was lieing is full of shit.) Rove LEAKED
              a covert CIA agent's cover.  A covert CIA agent who was working
              with preventing WMD proliferation.  Rove leaked the name for
              no reason other than to get back at someone.  In the process he
              also leaked a CIA cover company and destroyed other agent's
              covers.  Why are you trying to defend this?
           \_ read http://tinyurl.com/8obkt . The article says "
              wilson's wife did not authorize the trip."  but like i said,
              who cares who authorized the trip?  - danh
              \_ dan, use motdedit. you stomped on me.
           \_ How often does it have to be said.  Repeating it doesn't make
              it true.  What did he lie about?  How does it feel to defend
              someone who single-handedly demolished a CIA front company?
              \_ You know what's really sad?  Both you and pp are both just
                 regurgitating talking points drafted by someone else.
                 The Republicans are much better at this sort of Pravdaesque
                 manipulation, so I expect them to survive this quite nicely.
                 \_ you got me, I read the same stuff everyone else does.
                    It infuriates me when someone prints in the media the
                    exact polar opposite of what actually occured.  For example
                    read in the Chronicle: http://tinyurl.com/c77w2
                    I am pretty sure Wilson's report said that Niger was not
                    selling yellowcake to Iraq.  It's like the officers
                    beating Rodney King claiming they were beating the
                    crap out of him to help out his skin complexion.  - danh
        \_ Wilson, through his Congressional testimony that
           contradicts his newspaper articles and quotes, has
           already been proven a fraud.  Even Kerry, who initially
           appointed Wilson an advisor, backed away from him during
           the election.  What you likely have here is an attempt by the
           Democrats and their media abettors to create a scandal
           during an election season that has subsequently blown
           up in their face.  Of course time will tell.
           Since Wilson had extensive business interests in Africa and
           Middle East, including Niger, his wife's role in
           his selection is very pertinent.
           \_ did you read danh's link?
           \_ What's most important though, is that each of these claims is
              irrelevant.
              irrelevant to the subject at hand.  Rove outed a CIA agent.
              It wouldn't matter if Joe Wilson was the seven-headed beast of
              the apocalypse.
           \_ Point out a lie. Please. Still waiting.
        \_ So, I haven't been following this too closely, but everything
           I've read seems to indicate that Rove did not actually leak
           classified info.  Saying 'X' works at the CIA, especially when
           such fact is already known, is not a leak.  It only became a
           'leak' when it turned out that she was actually undercover at
           the time, which apparently Rove didn't know.  How can someone
           leak info they don't know?  Rove's actions in trying to
           discredit Wilson, while not pure, are at least reasonable in
           that Wilson is actually not very credible.  I think that's the
           only reason anyone cares about Wilson.  I think danh's link was
           the most balanced thing I've read though... -jrleek
           \_ Did you actually read danh's link?  Quote:
              No, Rove didn't "reveal the name." But the law doesn't cite
              that as a felony; it only specifies revealing the "identity" as
              a crime. It says nothing about a "name."  Rove revealed "Joe
              Wilson's wife." That qualifies as an "identity."  By the way,
              Plame did not go by the name of Plame, but Wilson -- in other
              words, Mrs. Wilson, or "Joe Wilson's wife." Rove seemed to know
              that much -- her identity."
              Also, what do you mean by "especially when such fact is
              already known"?  Are you saying it was widely known that
              Plame was a NOC working in weapons of mass destruction for CIA?
              I mean, it certainly became widely known she was a CIA agent
              working WMDs after Novak's article.
              \_ The law also requires you to have learned the identity and/or
                 status from classified sources, and have the intent to expose
                 the agent.  It appears now that Rove learned that Wilson's
                 wife was in the CIA from Novak (not a classified source) and
                 that his purpose was to warn Cooper away from trusting Wilson
                 as a source because he got the Niger job not because of
                 qualifications but because of family ties.  No, Plame didn't
                 /approve/ the job (she didn' thave the authority), but she
                 /did/ present Wilson's name as a candidate (which Wilson
                 denies but which has been proven in a memo found by the Senate
                 Intelligence Committee). -emarkp
                \_ I think you're chewing on RNC talking points this morning.
                   What would make Wilson more qualified?  He served as a
                   diplomat in Niger, Togo, Burundi, South Africa,
                   Gabon, and Sao Tome, plus Iraq.  The CIA claims that
                   Wilson was chosen based on his experiences, not because
                   of who his wife is. - danh
                   \_ Well, the CIA _did_ screw up the pre-war intel, so
                      we know how reliable they are....
                   \_ I don't think he was unqualified.  But that's what Rove
                      was trying to say.  I find it odd that Wilson denies that
                      his wife recommended him.  At any rate, I haven't read
                      any "RNC talking points" this morning. -emarkp
