4/27    What's up with the CSUA homepage?  What's that quote?
        I don't get it.
        \- I assume we got rooted again. OMG, hahah. I give up - linxu
           \_ You're probably not rooted, but you made the mistake of
              having the web heirarchy owned by the UID that the web
              server is running under.  Therefore, any hole in any installed
              CGI or PHP can re-write pages, and probably execute arbitrary
              code as the web server user.  -tom
                \- Soooo re-enabling cgi-bin and being dumb was the cause.
                   I still give up though. Ah, well...-linxu
                   \_ suexec or cgiwrap or the likes is a good idea too.
                   \_ find . -user www -exec chown not-www {} \;
                      would be a good start.  -tom

4/27    My 2 month old Seagate 200G EIDE drive failed yesterday. It's a
        Seagate, not a WD or Maxtor. I can't believe it.
        \_ Statistically, sooner or later you will get unlucky.  Also, every
           now and then vendors have bad runs, like the IBM Deathstar drives
           from a couple years ago.  If it's 2 months old it should still be
           under warranty.  Just get it replaced. -dans
