11/4    I just received a piece of spam that's the most threatening I've seen
        so far:
        "<my-email-addr> is a nonprofit/charity contact email address right?
        if so...
        \_ they represent a threat to the CSUA.  squish them.

4/02    We use Perforce at work for revision control. It seems to work okay.
        Lately, a lot of the newer developers are saying that Perforce
        sucks and we should switch to Mercurial or Git. I have done some
        searching on the Internet and some others have this opinion. Added
        advantage is that Mercurial and Git are free. However, there would
        be some work to switch for the sysadmins and the developers.

4/26    I see that soda has an ipv6 address but ipv6 traffic from this box
        doesn't actually work (ping6 <DEAD><DEAD>, ping6
        Is this expected to work?
        \_ Soda doesn't have a real IPv6 address.  The IPv6 addresses you see
           in ifconfig are just link-local addresses; any IPv6-capable machine
           will autogenerate these, whether or not it's connected to an IPv6

        \_ How is this different from the hundreds of other M$ security
           vulnerabilities that people have been finding?

11/1    I'm moving from a home in Fremont to another home within the same ZIP
        code in Fremont, and AT&T customer service says I cannot transfer my
        DSL service because DSL is not available at my new home.  Is that BS?
        Are they just trying to push me to subscribe to their more expensive
        U-verse service?  I'm not asking for any lightening-speed connection.

8/16    Why does my Y! mail account always full of unfiltered spam
        mails (and they're obviously spams)? Why can't they do
        a better job like Google mail? Why does Y! mail charge
        for exporting email? Google mail doesn't do that.

8/12    Ugg, no spamd any longer?  I figured I'd have to just give up on my
        soda address (sad, very sad) but Vacation doesn't seem to be installed
        either, so I can't even leave a mesg. to people telling them where
        tom mail me now.  Or can I ?  Any advice out there.  Or can we get
        spamassassin/spamd reinstalled or Vacation or... help....

12/8    Old news, but new to me:
        Spam King kills himself and his family after escaping prison
        Hopefully more spammers will take the hint.
        \_ I wish the same fate can go to all marketing and
           advertising folks, selling people things they don't

7/17    Thanks to steven, et al. for restoring Soda. In lieu of www.csua providing
        status, could there be a text file with current status and future plans.
        I'm wondering if SpamAssassin is obsolete (and my procmailrc and scripts)
        and won't be restored, and what's filtering spam now.  thanks!
        \_ How do I buy steven a beer or donate gobs of money?
           \_ I got him a Hacker-Pschorr, he seems to like ales.  Prob IPAs

5/4     Is mail still down? I don't seem to be getting any and vermouth
        is unavailable. I saw a note saying it was down Sunday, but it's
        almost Tuesday now.
        \_ exim4 decided it wanted to just die. With the same config file and
        everything. Steven spent all weekend and a lot of yesterday migrating
        to a VM. A side effect is that NFS is now no longer on Keg, so crashy

4/7     I have a friend who recently started a blog posting about
        legal issues (he was a lawyer who was laid off). I'm not sure why
        he started this blog, but it's likely something he can show off
        to potential future employers. Anyway, he keeps sending emails
        whenever he's added another entry (approx once a week). Is there
        any netiquette about mass emailings to tell friends/relatives
