2/18    What happened to wall?
        \_ Died a natural death?
        \_ phase 1: soda got hacked, politburo disabled EVERYONE's account,
           most people didn't bother going through the procedure to get turned
           back on.
           phase 2:  vp didnt figure out how to keep soda successfully mounting
           NFS storage until recently, so a lot of people had trouble logging
           over the last few months.  I'm shocked i can log in now !
           kind of sucks, but i guess all things end.
           \_ recently? it's still dying.
                \_ as i write this, it is currently dead.
        \_ what do you suppose the end game for soda is?   just turn
           it into a forum on something like yahoogroups?   motd become a
           google wave doc?
           \_ The end game is it will be thrown into E&S, with all the disks,
              and put into a box and shelved in a giant warehouse in emeryville
              as the camera pans out and harrison ford goes "Fools."
              \_ Lol that explains the countdown timer.
              \_ Wrong. Soda is already gone. This is a VM. Didn't you know?

8/13    How can this be?
        soda {104}% finger reiser
        finger: reiser: no such user.
        Hans was one of the founders of the OCF, did he never get a CSUA
        account?

4/8     What's a good free e-mail provider? I don't want to use Gmail,
        Yahoo, Outlook, or any of those sites with features I never use that
        track my personal info and keep changing their interface. I want just
        simple e-mail without privacy issues or all the baggage these large,
        for-profit companies are adding. I might even be willing to pay.
        Recommendations?

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
        error.
        \_ Asking questions on the motd will not get any attention from
           any undergrad. You should email politburo or perhaps csua. -ausman

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.

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 http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~myname ?
        "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.)
           link:reader.google.com is the best
