8/7     I heard something about someone attempting to utilize NIS
        authentication on Sloda. What was the exact nature for this,
        was it to allow for a centralized system to manage users
        amongst the different computers within the CSUA? What is
        currently being utilized for this, and why was NIS chosen
        vs. a less obsolete technology like LDAP?
        \_ Why do you think somebody owes anonymous you an
           explanation?  Check the wall, motd logs.

        the official csua web site is still down., this makes it a

        p.s.  this web entry format is counter intuitive.  And how come

2/10    I have an sh file that does a mount.. the mount does an
        authentication. I previosly stored the username and password
        from zenity prompts. However, I can't get a return on the password
        field. The following only works on the username:
        mount -t davfs "" /mountdir << EOF

5/15    How is Facebook's authentication system different from OpenID?
        \_ I think the point might be that it is not?   We should get dans

9/27    Does anyone have experiences with OpenId and/or TypeKey as to
        minimize the effort spent on your web app authentication? How easy is
        it to integrate these 3rd party components into your web apps?

8/23    how do i view a private livejournal RSS feed in Google Reader?
        \_ I've tried this, and I don't think you can.  Livejournal provides
           a couple of (pretty poor) mechanisms for feeds, but Google
           Reader does not (last I checked) support any form of authentication.
           I had a script set up to screen-scrape LJ, log in as me and spit
           out an rss feed, but it broke and I haven't had the energy to

8/24    Anybody experiencing login authentication problems?  I cannot login
        with unix passwd thru ssh, although I was able to login using my ssh
        auth keys/cert.  Then when I type passwd to change the passwd,
        I'm getting an LDAP passwd change prompt--but only once: if I type
        passwd again, I get the Unix passwd change prompt.  In any case,
        it won't accept my old passwd nor allow me to change the passwd.

8/24    Anybody experiencing login authentication problems?  I cannot login
        using my login and passwd thru ssh on the SECOND attempt and on:
        ie, when I do ssh csua, it works once, but not afterwards.
        Then when I do ssh, it works once, but not afterwards.
        I can STILL login when I use a machine that use ssh authorized public
        keys (with the ssh passwd), but not the unix login/passwd.

8/7     I'm trying to figure out whether it's possible for get wget to
        authenticate to a web page protected by a login form ('post'
        method to send username/pass, and cookies.)  Cookies don't seem
        to be the problem, with --save-cookies and --keep-session-cookies
        but getting the username/password submitted isn't doing it.  On
        this particular page, getting to a link, let's say 'example.aspx',
