6/4     Please don't nuke the motd.
        \_ I don't think that was an intentional nuke, but someone's editor
           freaking because /TMP IS FULL!!!!
           \_ It looks like some version of motdedit is writing temp files
              there instead of maybe /csua/tmp.  Bad idea?  Also mconst
              has a bunch of pngs in there.
              \_ /csua/tmp fills up more often than /tmp
                 \_ But doesn't start to take down basic shell commands and
                    mail programs.

2/22    Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get into GDC this year?
        Its during spring break so I can actually attend everyday.
        I hear there are jobs taking notes for various speakers for those
        who cannot attend.

w/know about? --toulouse (Secretary)
        P.S. The office has actually been in 337 Soda, not 343 Soda, for the
        past year and a half or so. Speaking of which, the
        wiki doesn't look editable, whereas there is in fact an official CSUA
        wiki that authenticates to our LDAP backend (i.e. CSUA members can

8/18    Hey dim why did you switch your motd edit command? Do you actually
        think you can hide from editting motd? I can read OS logs ya know.
           \_ Who are you?  I'm wondering who would sorry someone
              for reading the logs to figure out who "anonymous" comments
              were written by.  --PeterM

3/23    Raise your hand if you don't know what motdedit is or why you should
        use it.
        And/or: Why does the motd seem to travel back in time?
        \_ Raise your hand if you don't care about motdedit.
        \_ motdedit is for the weak.  we've been over this.
        \_ The time travel thing is the result of censor/restore wars.

2/21    Why don't people respect the lock on the motd put on by vi or
        emacs? Are they that paranoid about kchang's motd watching program?
        Is anyone still using motdedit?
        \_ hey I still use it.  Some people don't though.  some sneaky folks
           edit a copy of the motd offline and put it in place, not caring how
           much they stomp on others' changes that might have happened in the

8/16    Why isn't motd.public copied to /etc/motd anymore? It still shows
        8/6. Also, what happened to motdedit?
        \_ /csua/bin/mtd is missing.  I'd write my own and stick it in
           there if I had magic permission to write to /etc/motd ,
           but I don't.

11/02   Does motdedit work for you all?  It just dumps me out with a
        successfull exit code (0).
        \_ Works for me (using it now). Check your $EDITOR environment
           variable. -gm
