1/27    identd is running on soda, btw, with some modifications, read manpage
        \_ it's generating cookies, not returning plain usernames. this means
           two things: 1) soda admin can still ID people and 2) IRC has
           problems because it's written by stupid people, for stupid people.
           we now return you to your regularly scheduled idiocy --aaron
       \_ does this mean ill have to cut down on my "finger motd@soda"
          habit :)
          \_ this is not an identd thing. whether fingerd reverse-queries
             for ident information is wholly independent of us running an
             identd. --aaron
        \_ I read it, but I still don't really get what it does, or how
           it's used.
                \_ When you connect to other computers, they can find out
                        which of the 100+ users on soda at that time opened
                        the connection.
        \_ identd is installed? really? IRC is still generating random
           user names

                    \_ f.u. moron, I wrote this before aaron replied. Dumbass

           NOT run identd.
                \_ In your dreams.
           \_ Yeah, and that was written down where exactly and agreed
              by who?  [I said "who", I meant "who".  "Whom" is a dead form.]
                \_ not dead as long as you get flamed for using "who" where

It was the dawn of the third decade of the CSUA, ten years after the XCF War.
The Server-Talk Project was a dream given form.  Its goal: to prevent another
disk-space war by creating a place where students and alumni could work out
their differences peacefully. It's a port of wall, /home away from /home for
diplomats, hustlers, entrepeneurs, and wanderers.  Files and programs stored
in two million, five hundred thousand sectors of spinning metal, all alone
in the machine room. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last, best
hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the soda workstations.  The
year is 1997. The name of the place is Soda Mark V.

        the draft says "Eligibility to Use Campus Email"
        CSUA will just have to restrict /usr/lib/sendmail
        for use by students only.  Alumni cant use email... wheee!!!
         \_ Members of group "alumni" will also be forbidden from
            using trn/tin/pine/etc. as newsgroups are defined as
            a form of e-mail by the policy.

         prepared to say goodbye to your soda accounts soon.)
        \_ Perhaps we could push for some kind of precedent that would
           allow alumni organizations to allow alumnis accounts for the
           sole purpose of conducting University-related discourse?
         \_ Don't forget about all the job recommendations and
          general advice/wisdom to be gotten from alumni.
          If the CSUA kills my Berkeley account, then I
          won't have much of a link to current Berkeley
          \_ The CSUA doesn't want to remove alumni accounts.
             We know alumni are good.  If we are forced to it
             will only be because everything else we've tried,
             including appeals to the Chancellor have failed.
             This isn't over yet - it hasn't even started.
         \_ Darn.  I wish I had gone to Stanfurd.  The graduates
          there get accounts at
          But then again, they give money to the school.
          If IS&T won't let me have an alumni account,
          I won't give money to the school.  I know at
          Davis you pay a flat fee of $500 or so to
          get lifetime alumni library privileges,
          discounts, and maybe an e-mail account too?
          Is there something like this from the
          Cal Alumni Association?  --pcjr
          \_ The alumni association uses the campus net
             connection and is also prohibited from giving
             out alumni accounts.  They will set you up with
             a deal with Netcom though.  -alanc-
           \_ What is the deal with Netcom though?
            Can one choose an ISP?
            Not having a Berkeley acct kinda
            defeats the purpose of alumniship,
            if you ask me.  --pcjr
         \_ For those who think this is a hoax, look at
            and see if you can find any way to allow alumni
            accounts given the limitations there.
           \_ "Departments may provide email service to contractors,
        independent consultants, or other qualifying
        individuals for the sole purpose of conducting their
        business with the University."
        How about we all become Brian Harvey's personal
        consultants. Unspecified tasks to be done, of course.
        And we would work for free. -- lars
         \_ we won't have to get rid of soda alumni accounts,
            we just have to give a timeline for getting rid
            of them, say 100 years after graduation..
            \_ Get a clue, if you do that, IS&T will simplely close
        the loophole very quickly.
         \_ What might this mean for majordomo mailing lists run off
            CSUA?  Is this an inappropriate use of "campus email"? -stevie
         \_ Not as far as anyone can find in the policy.
          \_Is soda.csua "owned or operated by the University or any of
            its sub-units"?  If not, or if it's not well-defined, I don't
            see what the fuss is about.  It seems like the documents are
            too vague for IS&T to have a point. -stevie
         \_ IS&T has stated they consider any and all machines
            connected to the campus network to be subject to this
            policy, whether the University "owns" them or not. -alanc-
        \_ Why?  --- yuen
         \_ Because alumni don't give money to IS&T and they're
           jealous of all the other places on campus alumni do
                  get money (and they just figured out they can screw
           over the rest of the campus this way)
           \_ I thought CSUA is not under IS$T.  Maybe they don't
              even like the fact that non IS$T machines are using
              campus ethernet.  --- yuen
          \_ IS&T runs the campus network - they make the
             policies everyone connected to the network
             (including the CSUA and people's home computers
             using Home-IP or in-room dorm connections) must
             follow.   -alanc-

           come into full compliance, so can we.

         \_ The alumni they care about donating don't give a shit
            about free accounts - if you can give $100,000 to Cal,
            you don't worry about having to pay $14.95 a month for

        mail politburo@csua and say "Don't give the new web server away!"

        \_ Better yet, attend the sunday politburo meeting.
         \_ Maybe it should be announced so people know about it

             them what's going to be discussed so they know it's not
             just a "sit around and waste time" meeting)
          \_ but all politburo meetings are a waste of time!

           never read anything that has pissed me off enough to waste
           other peoples time by adding to the Motd.  The proposed alternate
           use of the computer in question is a good one, worthy of CSUA
           support.  If somone feels that CSUA members should not support
           this position there are appropriate forums (as explained above).
           Asking CSUA members to mail politburo in support of a position
           without even attempting to explain it is insulting to us all.

           a nice solid machine for their own use.  I can throw in an extra
           6 gigs of disk and have the machine at the CSUA anytime you're
           ready for it.  We used to use it as a file server and as a CPU
           server at a different time.  It should easily handle all the
           ftp, DNS, www, and file serving functions of the csua.  Why
           is the csua trying to bite the hands that feed it?  This is the
           third donation from us, if you don't need this machine, then you
           won't need the 4th, 5th, 6th, etc donations either, I'd guess.
           Maybe its just because this is summer, but this isn't the sort

11/12   I set up a Help Sessions home page on http://xcf/help-sessions.html;
        I'd appreciate it if people could look at it and give me any
        suggestions/corrections they may have. -boss
         \-well, without looking at it i have one suggestion:
        put it on www.csua. since i have to assume that the reason to do this
        was not self-evident, i shall spell it out: in the future, it is not
        clear that the person who will run the help sessions will be a xcf
        memeber, or even if the xcf will exist by then. however, it is almost
        certain that the help director will be a csua member and that the
        csua will still exist. so unless the xcf is willing to give access
        to the help directory, member or not, to avoid changing the help
        session url, you should "fix" it at www.csua. --psb
        \_ The page was put on the XCF and not the CSUA for the simple reason
           that at the time when I was writing the page, soda was down and the
           XCF was not.  Now that the page is on the XCF, I feel no especial
           urge to move it until it becomes a problem.  Since it's not very
           likely that either the XCF or myself will disapear suddenly, it
           shouldn't be a problem to move it if and when it becomes an issue.
           At the moment, however, I don't consider it an issue.  -boss
        \_ I 100% guarantee that, barring significant disaster, the XCF
           will be here for YEARS to come.   -- Marco
           \-psb == significant disaster for the XCF
             \_ No, you misunderstand - there would have to be a significant
         disaster to ME before the XCF will stop existing. -- Marco
         \_ that can be arranged
            \_ But it won't be, so STFU.   -- Marco
        \_ So how long _do_ you plan to be an undegrad, marco?

7/26    The fateful LAST DAY of the CSUA's occupancy of Evans Hell!

        Soda is going down TODAY, this afternoon, maybe this evening.
        If you have any important files, we suggest you get them backed
        up elsewhere NOW.  We don't plan on losing anything, but we can't
        guarantee against some disaster during the move.  ("Um, sorry, we
        knocked over your refrigerator when 'Big Ed' was pulling it from the
        truck" "You Did WHAT??!  That was our computer!!! AUGGH!!!")

        THIS WEEK, the week of July 26th, will be taken
        down and moved to the new Soda Hall building.  This means that the
        machine could possibly be down for about a week.  Mail will not
        bounce.  We've made arrangements for our mail to be handled.
        When we come back, we'll be known as : (w/ a new IP address yet to be determined) will only be around for 6 months after the move.

        And remember, if you plan on receiving important or time critical mail
        during the time soda's down, have the sender send it somewhere else!
        .forward files won't work!

            motd - Message of the Day

            The file /etc/motd is automatically displayed to users when
            they log in.  The first section consists of official mes-
            sages from Soda staff & CSUA officers, while the second part
            is a public forum for messages from any Soda user.

            Messages in each section are listed in newest to oldest
            order.  An old message is deleted when people decide they no
            longer want to see it.  Responses to a message follow
            directly after it, and should have "lines" made of charac-
            ters such as | and \ and intelligent indenting to make it
            easier to follow which message is responding to which.
            Entries are often taken more seriously if they are signed,
            although anonymous messages have their place.

          automatically regenerated every few minutes by _ c_ r_ o_ n.

          the right to ignore any question you mail to them for

            This is pretty unique to soda.  Most machines have an motd
            devoted solely to important system announcements.

            There is no protection against two users editing the
            motd.public at the same time.  If your editor complains the
            file has changed since it loaded it, the polite thing to do
            is not save your changes, but change the updated file so you
            don't delete the other person's message.

8/29    People who install stuff on soda no longer need to use a portion
        of their disk quota to do so.  /usr6/build is writable by group bin,
        and is specifically for building stuff that will be used by the
        soda populus (not your CS169 project).  /usr6/src is for storing
        copies of soda-specific source (not things you pulled off the net
        and ran make on).  If in doubt, read the READMEs in each directory.
        Stuff older than 3 days is now cleared out of /tmp by cron.

There is a rash of mail bombs going off in academic institutions across

in Cory in the past.

5/12    Announcing the first CSUA Bike Ride Against IRC!  It is
        tentatively planned for June 5th starting at 10:00 AM.  There

        \_ Pardon my h0zerness, what's IRC?
        \_ It stands for Internet Relay Chat.  It acutally is good, for
           what it is, but there is a faction that wants to turn soda
           into an IRC server, which would be, in the opinion of many
           soda stalwarts, a Bad Thing.

        dictate what programs you may use?  wallall will be deleted on
        Monday after the Politburo meeting unless something is done.
        \_ no it won't, because adam's solution is extreme and everyone
           else agreed so, shannon.  but people ought to chill out and
           respect each other a bit while walling.  -george

         \_ That's censorship, which is to say restriction of
            a specific type of speech by those people who control
            the allocation of the resources for that speech.  Is
            that acceptable?
            \_ Um, actually, I don't think that's censorship.  If
        they control the resources, then they *control* *the*
        *resources*, and can do what they want.  Censorship
        is restriction of speech by someone who doesn't control
        the resource, like the government.  If you want soda
        to be un-managed, say so.
          \uh how do you censor if you dont have control? --psb
            \_ Yes.  There is no excuse for tolerating electronic
        harrassment in the name of free speech. -gwh
          \No, there is no reason for tolerating dumb speech
           in the name of george. When all you need to do is
           "electronically close you eyes" [wallall -n], its
           tough to make the case this is harassment.
           besides, wallall preserves ample records and witnesses

        back on, they could do it.  A general meeting
        could overturn, but that's it.  [This actually
        sidesteps the issue that you DID NOT elect Adam
        Glass - because he is a friend of the politburo,
        he is CLEARLY getting preferential treatment.
        That is a problem for another day though].

          What a concept.
           \_ More like our Stalin
        \_I don't see how Adam is getting special treatment.  He proposed
          a policy change.  I said we'd vote on it, and asked for public
          input.  Any other user is welcome to do the same.  And I'm not
          pretending that a Politburo meeting can be a general meeting;
          if opinion at the meeting is overwhelmingly one way (which it
          appears it is), then the status quo will remain.  If Adam wants
          to push it further, which is his right under our const., I'm
        \_ I am not at all convinced that free speech is more important
           than the cohesiveness of the Organization. -- Marco
