7/27    Minutes from politburo: We should migrate email to Google Apps instead
        of hosting it ourselves, since managing the mail server takes up too
        much of VP's time website needs: *RSS *calendar *static pages
        \_ Why is CSUA mail such a problem?  Please discuss?
        \_ Bahahahahaha. CSUA should just outsource UNIX to India.
           While you're at it, move motd to Yahoo Groups, irc+ntalk to Google
           Talk, and picture hosting to Flickr. I'll miss alt.binaries.erotic.*
           but that's the price we have to pay, I guess.
                \_ politburo, i will run email for you if you want.  i have
                   a decade experience doing it.
                   \_ who are you?
                      \_ #2.New()
                         \_ whois number.1
        \_ Relevant discussion happening on csua@csua mail list
           \_ summary: vaheder rejects outsourcing and wants to use the the
              antiquated light saber. the force in vaheder is strong.
              there is hope in this one.
           \_ summary: tom[holub] says sysadm for <10 alumni isn't going to
              be very interesting. however, Amazon donated EC2 and cloud
              computing could be the future, and it'll probably be more
              fun using a canon than a light sabre.
              \_ lol@cloud computing
        \_ If we had a filer, I am of the opinion that much of the pain of
           keeping our services up and running services would be mitigated. Most
           of our uptime problems were because of crashy keg. Another server to
           run VMWare e-sex or whatever it's called now would be nice, but no
           doubt out of our reach
           \_ Who are you? I can probably wrangle a filer to donate. -ausman
              \_ I am politburo. I am root. I am nobody.

9/26    I remember there was web version of the motd with search function
        (originally due to kchang ?).  The last time I used it it was hosted
        on the csua website but I can't remember its url (onset of dementia?)
        now. Can somebody plz post it, tnx.

9/4     It looks like there are some issues with wallall at the moment. Any
        plans for it getting fixed? I can run wall, but wallall just gives an

           any undergrad. You should email politburo or perhaps csua. -ausman

4/19    Motd updater thingy seems to be broken, does anyone know why?
        If not, I will take a look later in the day. -ausman
        \_ /etc/motd.public is not getting copied into /etc/motd for a while.
           \_ Now it works and no one knows why. Strange. -ausman

2/6     Um, what happened to ?
        "The requested URL /~myname/ was not found on this server."
        \_ Try emailing root or politburo. I don't think that the
           undergrads use this machine anymore. -ausman
        \_ Ausman is mostly right. LDAP went down due to an expired cert and
           took down most of the rest of our stuff. It's probably a thing with

2/24    What newsreader should I use on soda?
        \_ USENIX? You serious? Everyone switched to RSS.
           \_ I think you mean usenet not usenix.  usenet was generally much
              better than blogs / rss (cf. comp.lang.c, comp.lang.perl,
              the usenet oracle, alt.* with digg, slashdot, etc.)
