8/29    I installed the latest ssh on my linux box.  Is there some way it
        can be configured to play nicely with soda (with soda as the host)
        or must i install version 1?
        \_ You must use version 1 to talk to soda until an ssh server becomes
           available that:
                a) supports both version 1 & 2
                b) has a license that allows the CSUA to use it (the one
                        currently provided by does not)
                b) has a license that allows the CSUA to use it for free (the
                        one currently provided by does not)
                \_ Why doesn't the CSUA get off their cheap ass and buy
                   a copy.  -- anonymous coward
                        \_ Why don't you donate enough money to the CSUA
                           so we can afford one?  A 10-user license is $495,
                           the CSUA has 200+ users online right now, you do
                           the math.
                           \_ The cost is $495 for an unlimited server
                              license.  You're confusing the client software
                              with the server software.
                           \_ anyone tried begging for one?
                           \_ Actually, CSUA has much more than 200 users
                              do a wc -l /etc/passwd

8/28    I'd like to learn (more)about sys admin.  For all you sys admins out
        there:  What's some of the best ways to learn a lot in a short amount
        of time (6 months)?
        \_ By doing.  Set up multiple boxes with the OS you're most interested
           in and network them in various ways.  That's a good start.
        \_ There are some good pages on the web for specific questions to
           common tricky technical problems--I recall there were a few pretty

8/25    Policy question: would it be against csua policy if I wrote a
        server to listen to an ephemeral port on csua which would
        establish a connection using popen to "telnet agate nntp"
        This would create a backdoor allowing anyone to access agate using
        a non-Berkeley ISP.
        \_ of course it would be.

           a public service of it.

7.18    We need a funny/humourous picture of a cow.  For the Undergraduate
        Cluster of Obsolete Workstations (this was / is the csua lounge)
                Note that there is not now and never has been _/
                a CSUA lounge in Soda.  The CSUA "owns" only the
                office and does not control the undergraduate lounge,
                just maintains the computers there.  (This has actually
                been an important point in dept. politics before, such
                as when the CSGSA wanted the CSUA to give up either the
                lounge or the office to them and was told the lounge wasn't
                the CSUA's to give up.)
        if there are any people who have such a thing, please email
        \_ It's amusing to call those workstations obsolete when some of
           the hardware in there is better than the crap you find on the
           second floor!  Who'd have thought that the CSUA would have
           better hook-ups than the CS Department.
                \_ it doesn't.  The department has much much cooler computers,
                   it just doesn't believe that undergrads are worth shit,
                   which is why undergrad labs only get donated computers
                   and undergrad labs keep getting closed.

        \_ Good idea -- whose idea was this?
                \_ It's a lame idea.  The real afterlife points go to those
                   who have enough afterlife to not log into soda anymore and
                   fill out their afterlife points total and update it as
                   their situation changes.
        \_ Is the out of county rule different from the one for life -- you
           don't get a point if you're in the same county?
           \_ Yup.  And it's even more ridiculous when applied to adults than
              to students.  The self appointed afterlife god is either still
              a student or still living a student lifestyle.

12/28   Why do phrases like "the City of Berkeley" and "the State of
        California" refer to the government bodies rather than the city/state
        as a whole?  Does it relate to something in our Constitution?  Thanks.
        \_ It's synecdoche.  --pld
        \_ They're notional places, but when someone says that they do
           something, or that something is done to them, the default
           referent is the government.  "The State imprisoned..." "...sued
           the State" "City assessed taxes..." etc. but "I live in the City
           of Berkeley", "the fastest computer in the whole State of

              means the state or city.  But when you say State, or City
              then it becomes the government.  E.g. "I live in the city of
              Berkeley, and the state of California."  Besides, it's just
              another way for the government to screw with your heads.
        \_ Putting it another way: how else would you say you got fucked over
           by a particular government entity?  It's just easiest to refer to
           the entity as a person.  Like so, "Berkeley fucked me for selling

                   \_ Since in theory, the government is of/by/for the people,

 why you chose to make such a strong statement, and what
 evidence you might have for it.  I know the schools are
 bad, but I hadn't dreamed they were as bad as that
 statement would imply, if I understand you correctly.
        \_ Oh.  Well excuse my nasty reply then.  In any case, yes, even

                                           isn't worth talking to.  -John
                              I deleted nothing.  I always judge people _/
                              by their vocabulary.  Because as we know, a big
                              vocabulary means you're a worthwhile person and
                              a lesser vocabulary means you're a worthless
                              scumbag.  I base all my friendships on
                              vocabulary size.  John, I love you but you're
                              not making sense.
                                \_ To clarify:  I was talking about willing-
                                   ness to learn, i.e. use a dictionary,
                                   when someone uses a word you don't know.
                                   I had no idea what "synecdoche" meant, so
                                   I looked it up.  Maybe that is too much
                                   to expect from university students.  -John
                                   \_ Had someone not deleted the rest of the
                                      motd, you would not have needed to look
                                      it up.  Hence my original gripe about
                                      scrubbing the simple English description
                                      that was posted.
                        So how do you account for the success of the  _/
                        New York Times, or of the Wall Street Journal,
                        or even of the San Jose Mercury News?
                        \_ Easily.  They're written for grade school level.
                           I read 2 of those 3 and you'll *never* find words
                           like that in those papers.
        \_ I'm stunned.  Are you people seriously arguing against clear
           writing?  Where did you learn that it's a good idea to use big
           words when explaining something to someone?  Would you be happy
           if your Professors used "college level vocabulary" while explaining
           class concepts?  I think not.
                \_ They had damn well better use "college level vocabulary".
                   I didn't pay tuition to learn academic concepts from
                   "Bow-wow the Dog and the Differential Equation".  No one
                   cares if you talk heap big word, but I'd sure prefer
                   people using descriptive terms if possible.  -John
                   \_ So you want them to smother you with 'big words' you
                      need to look up while trying to learn about Diff.Eqs.?
                      Most of your Profs have sufficiently larger vocabularies
                      that you'd learn lots of new words in class but no new
                      concepts.  While teaching a new concept, it should
                      always be in terms already clearly understood.  I didn't
                      come to Berkeley for an in-class vocabulary lesson.  I
                      came here to learn.  Vocabulary is rote memorization
                      which any 4th grader can master.
        \_ Well, sure, if you are explaining synecdoche to someone whom
           you suspect has never encountered the concept before, you're
           not going to just randomly say "Well, that's synecdoche" and
           walk away. But if you think that, as in the example above,
           it might be effective to point out that calling the government
           of the City of Berkeley "the City of Berkeley" is the same sort
           of literary process as ones that the person may have
           encountered before when reading, e.g., Shakespeare, why not
           make a stab at it? It can save paragraphs and paragraphs of
           typing, and one well-chosen word can often serve your purposes
           better than hundreds of clumsy examples. I personally don't
           think that the tradition of American anti-intellectualism (said
           tradition which gives rise to the epithet of "using big words")
           is one that I want to have any part in upholding. And you're
           actually quite wrong about what I expect from my professors; I
           want them _not_ to talk down to me. (They're often the only ones
           who don't, and I have never found it to be an unrewarding
           experience to make the effort to try to understand them.)
           \_ No one mentioned Shakespear.  Someone simply stated, "It's
              synecdoche" without further explanation.  Whether or not
              further explanation was necessary we can't know unless the
              original poster tells us if that was useful to them, but since
              others had already typed out multi line common English
              descriptions with examples, why not just leave them?  Again, I
              say that IMHO you'd be really pissed off if the Profs all packed
              their lectures with those 'big words' and you spent your lecture
              time flipping through a dictionary instead of learning a new
              classroom concept.  Since when is speaking in common English the
              same as 'talking down' to someone?  There's no correlation
              between 'big words' in the classroom and enhanced learning.
              God, please don't let any of these people teach my children in
              anything other than a 4th grade English class.  Vocabulary is
              little more than rote memorization and I didn't go to Berkeley
              and pay all that tuition and spend all that time to enhance a
              skill I had mastered by the fourth grade.  Oh, btw, I was wrong
              about the newspapers.  They write to an 8th grade level.  :-)
              \_ Shuddup John. You graduated years ago. One of the requirements
                 of old-fart-dom is to not make "back in my day" comments, at
                 least not in front of the children.
                 \_ 1) Not John.
                    2) John didn't graduate so long ago that he can't have a
                       valid opinion on the subject.
                    3) Yes, the writer has graduated but there isn't a single
                       "back in my day" comment in there.  Had I said, "I don't
                       go to Berkeley and pay all that tuition..." the rest
                       would remain factually correct.  The tense of my
                       phrasing doesn't change the facts.  You copped out.
                    4) I would like to say that back in my day, the students
                       wouldn't have made such a ridiculous comment/reply, but
                       their reading comprehension was no better than yours,
                       to everyone's detriment.

3/05    I would like to vote for a "no porn" policy on the CSUA web site.
        The situation is simply getting too ridiculous;  not to even mention
        that it may be violating some UCB policy.  I propose that we all
        porn pages off to OCF if they can host them and leave CSUA
        to be used for more important things.  THank YOu.
        -A very concerned CSUA member/parent
        \_ Show us what UCB policy is being violated, or for that matter
           what CSUA policy.  And define "porn."  -tom
        \_ I'm not your kids' parent.  Deal with it.  It doesn't take a
           village to raise a child.  It takes parents.  Real parents.  You
           seriously believe that removing art from the CSUA's web site will
           keep Johnny from seeing nekkig girlz on the web?
        \_ If you want this done, propose it at the next politburo
           meeting.  If enough members vote for it, it will become
           the law.
           \_ Yep, and who gets squicked when non-porn gets removed or you
              fail to police "real" porn and someone's kid sees it?  Let it
        \_ No such UCB policy exists.  In fact, this is a really really bad
           idea because now you're trying to decide what's porn and not and
           the "I can't define it, but I know what it is when I see it" method
           doesn't hold water.  Also, you're talking about possible
           infringement of first amendment rights.  I *strongly* suggest the
           CSUA ignores all the porn.  If you want a disk space policy, that's
           a different matter, but you're looking for trouble when you filter
           by content.  At my site we don't do *any* sort of anything like
           this.  Until there's a serious legal problem, just leave it alone.
           I suggest this concerned parent watch what their kids are doing on
           the computer.  It is your responsibility to take care of your kids,
           not the CSUA's or any other computer organisation.  Try NetNanny or
           something if it bothers you so much.  -A very concerned member
        \_ Look, I'm as much in favor of a good yank as the next guy, maybe
           even more, but I think a no porn policy might be good.  It's not an
           infringement of the first amendment, any more than, say, the
           Chronicle refusing to print porn is.  It's honestly mostly a matter
           of bandwidth - the CSUA has had a lot of problems with porn getting
           too many hits, and there's no reason to believe that'll stop.  As
                \_ So the problem is number of hits, not that it's porn.
                   Therefore, censorship solves the wrong problem and the
                   correct solution is either per-user hit limits or hacking
                   the httpd/kernel to assign scheduling tickets for user pages
                   out of the user's pool so if one user gets lots of hits it
                   only hoses them.     -alanc-
           far as what's porn and what isn't, that's a hard decision
           sometimes;es, but it's fairly reasonable to say that it can be
           judged on a case-by-case basis (like everyothing else in this
             \_ Really?  You plan to personally view all 5000 gifs I intend
                to make available on a weekly rotating basis?
           crazy, shiftless world).  Or, another way of doing it is saying
           that any content that generates a certain level of bandwidth
           should require approval beforehand.  The question isn't whether
             \_ One man's porn is another man's art.  Are we using my
                standards or yours?  I'm surprised to see such right wing
                control oriented fascism coming from you, Ted.  Where have
                the barefoot days gone?
           porn is bad - it's whether CSUA should shell out the bucks to host
           it.  -thepro
                \_ The problem is CSUA bucks come via mandatory student fees
                        and are therefore bound by all sorts of University
                        & ASUC regulations.  If the CSUA decides to exercise
                        editorial control over web pages it causes many more
                        problems than not doing so.  (Not that the CSUA spends
                        any bucks on web serving - the machine was donated and
                        the net is paid for by the University.)
                        \_ THANK YOU!  This is the point I failed to make
                           earlier.  -first to say leave it alone.
