3/25    My team (Yahoo! login/registration/access) has several
        software engineer positions open at all experience levels. -atom
        \_ I need a part time job, please give me a flexible part time
           job because school sucks.                             -kchang
        \_ How about fucking change the default login to be secure login??
           Every other fucking website in the world uses secure login. Why
           does Yahoo insist on using non-secure login as default????!!!
           \_ Because it is secure, dufus. Assuming you have javascript
              enabled anyway. They issue a random challenge string that
              you answer by hashing together your password and the challenge.
              \_ Oh wow, we don't really need SSL don't we?
              \_ Oh wow, we don't really need SSL I guess.
                 \_ Wow, no, it's needed for some things.
              \_ Why doesn't yahoo use SSL login by default?
                 \_ Well, the obvious reason is they don't want to buy
                    hardware that can handle craploads of SSL connections,
                    which is a lot more expensive than the hashing scheme.
           \_ Aren't you in LA?

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

9/24    How come changing my shell using ldapmodify (chsh doesn't work) doesn't
        work either? ldapsearch and getent show the new shell but I still get
        the old shell on login.

           \_ An anachronism from a bygone era, when computers were hard to
              comeby, the dorms didn't have net, there was no airbears, and
              when phones didn't come standard with twitter or sms.

10/1    I am thinking of installing firefox on soda under my home directory.
        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,
           but our login server is not.

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.
