2/18    Synchronized swimming of six Goldfish
        Obviously the fish are driven by magnets.  Their fins aren't even
        moving when they "swim".

2/18    Why does the system seem so sluggish lately?
        \_ Slow NFS is basically always the answer. --toulouse
        \_ Any truth to the rumor that soda will be decommissioned this summer?
           \_ Absolutely none. Soda might go down temporarily while disks are
              reorganized and stuff so soda doesn't suffer from such shitty
              performance nearly as much, but no, we've gotta maintain NFS and
              mail anyways, so there's no sense in shutting soda down.
              \_ Cool.
              \_ I thought you guys were proposing moving soda offa nfs and
                 removing mail except for .forwards?
                 \_ Correct. Soda would be moved off of NFS. We still need NFS
                    for other things though. And 'removing mail except for
                    .forwards' still constitutes a maintenance effort wrt/
                    keeping things running. --toulouse
                    \_ To clarify - this is what is proposed. Receiving mail on
                       CSUA systems (as opposed to forwarding it from CSUA->
                       whatever your .forward specifies) is merely deprecated.
