3/7     Are there any ISPs that still offer generic dial-up PPP accounts that
        works with the Windoze generic dialer and don't require custom dial-up
        clients?  I have an AT&T Global Dialer account, but it needs the Global
        Dialer client.  I remember the old days where all I needed was to enter
        the phone number, login and password into the Windoze dialer, and it'd
        work.  Thanks.
        \_ SBC Global works for me when I'm on the road. - jvarga
        \_ http://ispwest.com works well for that. even works with linux.
        \_ http://sonic.net
        \_ They've always had the at&t dialer, but you've been able to
           authenticate with PAP and with login in the past with the
           8764287346@worldnet.att.net and the gibberish password.  Look for
           an account.txt file -dwc

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

        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

        Will this make me a hozer?
        \_ Possibly. I wonder if we should have another VM for that...btw,
           I remember someone saying they're glad we're not on FreeBSD
           anymore, but last I checked, a bunch of our stuff is on FreeBSD,

7/7     what happened to our web presence? http://www.csua.berkeley.edu
        not working
    \_ That would be because we've yet to set them up afaik. Steven *does* have
    a job after all. The idea is that we want a separate computer mounting the
    web directories, so that if an exploit compromises the webserver, the shell
    server (soda) itself will be insulated from the attack.

3/8     I'm reading about an old exploit where someone used a buffer overflow
        in a printer daemon to get "daemon privileges," which allowed them
        to use another exploit on the mail delivery program to get root.  I'm
        not sure what daemon privileges are.  Is there some set of priveleges
        that most daemons run on that is higher than user but lower than root?
        What are they?  I've never heard this before.
