10/11   What type of hardware does Soda run on? (Is this a FAQ? If so, where
        should I be looking?)
        \_ /csua/share/doc/machines
           \_ wow, i never knew we had such awesome machines in the lounge.
              last time i went there were a bunch of huge super-loud old
              computers with monochrome monitors.
              \_ they're still pretty loud, lots of background hum, but at
                 least they are color. --jon
           \_ What's the deal with all the Ultrix machines? Is it possible
              to go to Digital UNIX instead? --dim
              \_ DU is not supported on the ultrix boxes' hardware..
              \_ Would you like to donate 6 Alpha Workstations to the CSUA
                 so that we could run wonderful digital unix?  --jon
                 \_ Aren't the DEC 5[05]00's Alphas? I'm not that up on
                    older DEC hardware. --dim
                    \_ DecSystem 5(5|0)00's run Dig Unix since they are
                       Alpha based.  DecServer/Stations of the same number
                       run Ultrix and are MIPS based.  Go Dec System Name
                       Recycling. --phillip
                        \_ For clarity: MIPS = ultrix, Alpha = DU.

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

3/29    A friend wants a PC (no mac). She doesn't want Dell. Is there a
        good place that can custom build for you (SSD, large RAM, cheap video
        card--no game)?
        \_ As a side note: back in my Cal days more than two decades ago when
           having a 387SX made me the only person with floating-point hardware,
           most machines were custom built.

1/27    Interesting list of useful unix tools. Shout out to
        cowsay even!
        \_ This is nice.  Thanks.

10/24  What's an easy way to see if say column 3 of a file matches a list of
       expressions in a file? Basically I want to combine "grep -f <file>"
       to store the patterns and awk's $3 ~ /(AAA|BBB|CCC)/ ... I realize
       I can do this with "egrep -f " and use regexp instead of strings, but
       was wondering if there was some magic way to do this.
       \_ UNIX has no magic. Make a shell script to produce the ask or egrep

3/10    What email program do people in Cal CS use nowadays?  In my school days
        people used /usr/bin/mail, then RMail in emacs, then VMail in emacs.
        After my days people used Elm, Pine, Mutt (I forgot which order).  In
        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
        they used to use in their school years.  In my last two jobs though,

11/12   How does one find out if a system has rootkit installed?
        \_ Unix or m$?
           \_ Unix. On M$ I always assume it's compromised.
              \_ Install Tripwire before you plug your server into The Net?
                 The only other answer I can think of is to reinstall the
                 OS from scratch on another server and do an md checksum
2009/9/4-12 [Computer/SW/OS/FreeBSD] UID:53331 Activity:kinda low
9/4     I'm seriously very happy Soda no longer runs FreeBSD.
        FreeBSD is really going down the tubes
        \_ funny, I dont remember it geting pwned anywhere near as many tmies
           as it has since the switch to Linux.  And that blog post is
           only abou the installer, not the running OS
2009/7/24-29 [Computer/SW/Editors/Vi] UID:53195 Activity:low
7/24    Is dos2unix available somewhere?  Someone added all those Ctrl-M's to
        \_ %s/^V^M//g in vim. What has your editor done for you today?
           \_ that works great in vi actually... in vim :set filetype=unix

CSUA Alumni Location: CSUA Machine Room, 340 Soda Hall It was the dawn of the third decade of the CSUA, ten years after the XCF War. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where students and alumni could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of wall, /home away from /home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepeneurs, and wanderers. Files and programs stored in two million, five hundred thousand sectors of spinning metal, all alone in the machine room. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last, best hope for peace.
