Berkeley CSUA MOTD
2012/5/8-6/4 [Computer/SW/Unix] UID:54383 Activity:nil
5/8     Hello everyone!  This is Josh Hawn, CSUA Tech VP for Spring 2012.
        About 2 weeks ago, someone brought to my attention that our script
        to periodically merge /etc/motd.public into /etc/motd wasn't
        running.  When I looked into it, the cron daemon was running, but
        there hadn't been any root activity in the log since April 7th.  I
        looked into it for a while, but got lost in other things I was
        working on (Studying for finals and what-not).
        Anyway, I decided to look into it again today and just restarted
        the crond daemon using:
            `/etc/init.d/cron restart`
        And it seems to be working now.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I
        should have noticed that I wasn't getting any cron daemon emails
        from soda for so long.  Please continue to enjoy using motd.
        Sorry for the service interruption.
        \_ Thank you Josh! Are you guys still giving out awesome
  mailing addresses so that future alum
           like yourself can enjoy perks like Amazon Prime
           for students?
           \_ I was able to use this account to sign up for FB
              before the masses, what other perks have you seen?
        \_ Ah that'd explain why my (cron based) motd archiver was broken too.
