6/6     s/key confusion and confirmation: I must have reading deficiency.  I
        read the s/key howto over and over but I couldn't grasp the idea.  So
        maybe someone can confirm my understanding of it.  The s/key stuff
        only dictates which machine I can access the csua server from.  That
        is, if I have entered the one time password from my home desktop, then
        I can log in from my home desktop with my unix login/pass.  I can not
        log in to cusa from my work machine if I haven't entered the one-time
        pass on that machine.

        Basically, since ssh2 is in effect now, I downloaded PuTTY.  After I
        enter the login as value, it shows "s/key 92 hi97345", then "password".
        However, I used the s/key calculator, and put in 92 hi97345, and got
        a one-time pass, with that pass I can not log in.  But I tried with my
        unix password, I'm no logged in.  So I am confused why it has "s/key"
        stuff and didn't expect a s/key one-time pass phrase?  I basically
        just use my unix login/pass just like before ssh was enabled.
        \_ Same here--that is, I've been seeing the s/key stuff when logging in
           since the ssh change, but I'm loggin in via putty, and just use my
           normal login.
        \_ Thanks for overwriting my changes fucktard.
           \_ vi should have locked the file if you opened it for write. others
                can only open it read-only.  So you must not have the lock on
                the file when you tried to edit it.
                \_ 1, you're wrong. 2, you overwrote someone else when adding
                   this post.
                   \_ 3, I thought we went over this, using VI will ensure a
                      lock on the file you are editing.  Or should we run a
                      command before editing a file?

9/19    "No, A Severed Finger Will Not Be Able to Access a Stolen iPhone 5S"
        I'm sure the Apple QA department has tested extensively that a severed
        finger will not be able to access a stolen iPhone 5S.
        \_ It doesn't matter whether or not a severed finger can be used.  It
           matters whether or not a robber thinks that a severed finger can be

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.
        \_ Scratch that, it magically took my new shell now. WTF?

8/6     Amazon and Apple have lame security policies:
        "First you call Amazon and tell them you are the account holder, and
         want to add a credit card number to the account. All you need is the
         name on the account, an associated e-mail address, and the billing
         address. "

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

        \_ 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.

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

3/10    What email program do people in Cal CS use nowadays?  In my school days
        people used /usr/bin/mail, then RMail in emacs, then VMail in emacs.
        After my days people used Elm, Pine, Mutt (I forgot which order).  In
        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
        they used to use in their school years.  In my last two jobs though,
