9/7     Dear Linux DNS experts, how do you find out if a domain has
        published SPF records? Is there a magic command like hostname,
        nslookup, etc that does this? I'm a UNIX noob. Thanks!

8/25    What's the best way to get a domain name that is about to expire?
        \_ It's called backordering.  It used to be fixed priced but now
           they're trying to auction them.  Still a good deal though.

7/9     is godaddy still the place for domain names? anything cheaper?
        \_ I use <DEAD>nearlyfreespeech.net<DEAD> since they're really awesome. It's worth
           paying for a decent registrar. Also, I use Sitelutions for the DNS for
           the domain, since it lets you have an enormous amount of control over
           your domain's DNS.

4/6     im considering making my Gmail account my default email for
        all my online banking stuff and domain registration and bill pay.
        Is there any anecdotal evidence of people getting their google
        account hacked?  After I do this change, Google will basically
        own me completely.

4/9     dig txt http://domain.com only returns one TXT record even though domain
        has more than one.  How do I see them all? tnx MOTD!
        \\_wow, I could not have picked a worse example.. "dig txt http://domain.com"
        actually DOES show more than one.  how come it doesn't work with
        mydomain.
        \_ Show us your zone file. You probably did something wrong.

11/3    Anyone point me to a solution for OSX  mac printing to a windows domain\
based computer that requires authorising. All the syntax that I have seen in var\
ious posts does not work (e.g. smb://username:password@machine/queue ). I was wo\
ndering if I should just accept it and wait until smbpool is fixed? Connecting\
via smbclient works just fine.

8/25    A guy wants to buy my domain name using http://escrow.com. Are they
        shady or are they decent, compared to PayPal?
        \_ http://escrow.com is legit. I would not use any other escrow site.
           \_ I just used it, and it's REALLY FAST and simple to use
              unlike (#**$(# PayPal. So far so good, will let you know --op

7/19    Why is OpenDNS popular? It still forwards me to ads when I go
        to an invalid domain. That is really annoying.
        \_ For one thing, they were never vulnerable to the latest round of DNS
           spoofing.
           \_ i think the latest round of dns spoofing attack was overblown.
              yes there was a security hole... but no one ever exploited it.

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

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
        card--no game)?
        \_ 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,

              \_ Install Tripwire before you plug your server into The Net?
                 The only other answer I can think of is to reinstall the
                 OS from scratch on another server and do an md checksum
