6/22    I have weird problems with soda email today - cannot receive or send
        any emails. I know I'm slightly over quota but my grace period isn't
        here yet. I use pine.  Anyone have similar problems today? Thanks :)
        \_ Soda's load gets high and then sendmail sits back and just queues
           for a while until the load goes back below 10 or so.  That's
           probably the problem. - jvarga
        \_ The grace period means nothing to the filesystem.  It's how long
           you have to take care of it yourself. Get yourself below quota,
           and your problems will cease.
        \_ Mail root, or post your name.  Motd can't help you.
          \_ my username is jdynin. I will also email root but I'm not sure
             if my email will reach them :)
             \_ You don't have any other email address you could use?
                Come on.  A little critical thinking here.
                \_ You also need to work on your critical thinking skills.
                   \_ Log into yahoo.  send mail to root@csua.berkeley.edu.
                      Yo, my login is XXXX.  What's up with this quota thing?
                      not hard.
                      \_ How does jdynin know that root can receive email,
                         if she is unsure her problem is quota-based?  Think
                         harder.
          \_ I also have not received any email on csua for the last 7
             hours.  I typically get on the order of nearly 100 spams per
             day, so it is almost unheard of that I would just not happen
             to get any email today.  -!op
        \_ I concur on not getting e-mail.
           I don't have a quota problem.
           telnet to port 25 and 465 and you notice a problem.
           Maybe root is working on it right this very moment.  Maybe not.
        \_ Is it likely that incoming mail is lost for good, or just
           delayed?
           \_ If it's less than 5 days (give or take), it's just delayed
        \_ OK, it seems I was able to get mail that was sent after 2:30 PM
           today.  I can send mail OK now too. Anyone knows if the mail that
           was sent to me or that I sent this morning is lost forever? -op
           \_ Senders to you should have gotten a message delayed message
              from their server. You should get it fine later. Outbound
              mail should have bounced back to you, if you could send
              it at all. Did you get bounces?
              \_ No, I did not get any bounces from the emails I sent out. I
                 did get one of those "your message coudln't be delivered for
                 4 hours" emails for the email I sent out this morning. It
                 seems my emails are slowly reaching their recipients, and my
                 morning inbound email is slowly reaching me.  Thanks for your
                 help! -op

9/20    How do I change my shell? chsh says "Cannot change ID to root."
        \_ /usr/bin/chsh does not have the SUID permission set. Without
           being set, it does not successfully change a user's shell.
           Typical newbie sys admin (on soda)

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?

5/8     Hello everyone!  This is Josh Hawn, CSUA Tech VP for Spring 2012.
        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

2/9     Reminder: support for mail services has been deprecated for *several
        years*. Mail forwarding, specifically .forward mail forwarding, is
        officially supported and was never deprecated.
        \_ There is no .forward under ~root.  How do we mail root and how do
           we get responses?
           \_ root@csua.berkeley.edu is and always has been an alias.

9/12    We've restored CSUA NFS to something vaguely resembling normal
        functionality -- plus, with some luck, we should now have something
        vaguely resembling normal uptime, too!  Ping root@csua.org if you
        notice any problems.  --jordan

6/5     In an effort to stabilize our services, we'll be rebuilding parts of
        the CSUA infrastructure over the course of this summer.  To give us
        some wiggle room, I've temporarily decreased soda's allocated RAM from
        8GB to 2GB.  If you need to run something that requires large amounts
        of memory, please send mail to root@csua.org and we'll try to
        accommodate your request.  --jordan

4/28    Will wall be fixed?   - jsl
        \_ What's wall?
           \_ 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.
