5/12    Any NFS servers that run on windows?
        \_ Can you just use smbmount?
           \_ Unpredictable port number is bad for firewalls
           \_ smbmount doesn't exist for all systems.
        \_ Haven't used any in about 8 years, but a google for
           nfs server windows turns up a bunch. --scotsman
        \_ Sort of.  PCNFS is a commercial product and there are others but
           they all have the same core windows/unix compatibility issue re:
           user name mapping.  It can be done but it becomes a bitch for large
           user bases.  Maybe these days it offers a more automated way of
           doing it when fed a passwd file.
        \_ I haven't used it, but Unix for Windows(or similar name) from
           Microsoft has nfsd.  And Microsoft is giving these away.  I got
           one in the mail a month ago.  A coworker told me that a lot of
           people prefer installing this first, before resorting to Cygwin.

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

8/30    Is wall just dead? The wallall command dies for me, muttering
        something about /var/wall/ttys not existing.
        \_ its seen a great drop in usage, though it seems mostly functional.
            -ERic
        \_ Couldn't open wall log!: Bad file descriptor
           Could not open wall subscription directory /var/wall/ttys: No such file or directory

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.

11/20   Are there tools that can justify a chunk of plain ASCII text by
        replacing words with words of similar meaning and inserting/removing
        commas into the text?  I received a 40-line plain text mail where
        all the lines are justified on left and right.  Every word and comma
        is followed by only one space, and every period is followed by two
        spaces.  The guy is my kid's karate instructor which I don't think is

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
