5/25    Does anyone know any good (and preferrably free) x-server for
        Win 95/NT?
        \_ <DEAD><DEAD>
           it's free and the whole thing can fit on a floppy.  I haven't
           used it, but have heard good things about it.
           \_ an X server VNC is not.  But its still pretty cool. -ERic
           \_ Hilarious, slow, crashes really creatively (even for me) -John
                \_ Use 8 bit graphics and stop trying to play netrek over it.
                   If the server is a unix box, it works great, the NT server
                   puts a huge cpu load on the host due to lack of open NT
                   source leading to much guessing on the developer's part.
                   Crashing?  RTFM, John.  NT has multiple screen modes.
        \_ I dont know how good it is but here's a free one:
        \_ Exceed from Hummingbird, but it costs $
                \_ it's free on campus/to students
                        \_ anon ftp
                           \_ depot has 6.x versions online which are pretty
                              much the same as 5.x but cleaned up a bit.  More
                              of a 5.2 than a 6.1 but I'm not working in the
                              Hummingbird marketting department.

12/5    I suggest CSUA buy a Mac and run MacOS on it. Maybe run Linux in
        a VM, too. I think students will get more bang for their buck
        trying to run services on MacOS than with "Just Another Linux Box".
        \_ On what basis? We do have an AppleTV, which we've yet to hack
           so it runs full OS X, but as a OS X user myself, I don't see the
           OS being useful for useful services except if we get OS X server

4/13    I use IE7 to browse a web site, and the server says the UserAgent
        string is
        "UserAgent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET
        CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30)"
        Is MS bowing to the Mozilla community?
        \_ What are you talking about?  IE has always reported its UserAgent

7/26    Are there any good solutions for multiple simultaneous remote logins
        to a Mac? I'm currently using OSXVnc's recommended method, which is
        to run a separate VNC instance for each user and have everyone logged
        in through fast user switching, but that's both a nuisance to set up
        and a drain on resources. I'm looking for a better option.

6/27    For anyone who's owned a G5 running OS X (10.3 or 10.4), how often do
        you need to reboot if it's being used as a workstation?
        \_ Occasionally you will run into the Windows NT syndrome of the system
           needing a reboot for a system software patch - I'd say about once
           every couple of months on a stable release, and once or twice a
           month on a new one.  Other than that, I have never seen a piece of

6/2     In the 'official' part of the motd it says ssh1 would be shut off,
        weeks ago no less, and yet it still seems to be on.  What up with that?
        \_ Whoever did the change neglected to restart sshd.  Fixed.  -jvarga
           \_ I just tried ssh from a Solaris machine to soda and I got "ssh:
              connect to host port 22: Connection
              refused".  I tried both with and without the "-2" option.  Now if
