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?
        \_ http://well.com. Not free though.

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

        \_ The last time soda got reinstalled, the wallall modifications
           didn't get brought forward into the new install.  It seemed to be
           a combination of a lack of awareness of its existence, and a lack
           of interest.  Seems to be part of the slow decline of the CSUA,
           with respect to interaction between undergrads and alums.  Oh well.

2/19    What's proper etiquette for posting jobs nowadays?  Is there
        still some jobs list?
        \_ http://indeed.com and http://linkedin.com are great.  Particularly the latter.
           \_ Sorry, I meant for posting jobs for CSUA members. (My
              company's looking for interns.)
        \_ Very few if any undergrads use soda anymore. You need to talk to
           the politburo directly via email. -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
           mounting and stuff. Email root@csua.org and ask them about the
           status. If nothing's happening, check in.
           \_ tried to mail root@csua.org, from soda.
                Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
                     root@csua.org

                Technical details of permanent failure:
                Message rejected by Google Groups. Please visit
                http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=188131 to review our
                Bulk Email Senders Guidelines.
              \_ Mail has been officially deprecated as a feature for years.
                 This was widely announced via mail as well as motd for at
                 *least* a year. No effort will be spent trying to resolve a
                 spam rating issue caused by email abuse by some alumni, bad
                 .forwards, and so on. Treat soda mail as forward-only, and
                 assume the mailboxes on CSUA systems will go read-only at any
                 moment, even if there will be ample warning. While www has a
                 much rosier outlook for support, it's also a fact that it's
                 not utilized almost at all by students and recent alumni. To
                 get your complaint resolved you'll need to complain to
                 root@csua.org (email it from somewhere that actively supports
                 their email services), and check in to make sure someone's
                 making progress on it.

11/16   We'll be taking all CSUA machines offline in the near future for a Soda
        Hall server room reorganization (we're being moved to a neighboring
        server cabinet).  Downtime will hopefully be minimal.  --jordan

        \_ there were glory days?
        \_ If you have to ask, you don't know.

2/16    Time to restart this tired old discussion again. Who here would non-
        anonymously join a CSUA web forum, were we to auth it against CSUA LDAP
        and CalNet? Just trying to gauge alumni interest - and answer questions
        (to the best of my knowledge*), should you have any, about the current
        undergrad CS/CSUA for those that may be less in-touch. --toulouse
        * because I dropped out, but still live in Berkeley and keep in touch
        \_ technically you're still an alum.  alums are defined as anyone who
           went to a school.  (It gives the college a much wider net to cast
           for donations).
        \_ webforums aren't anon. :-(
           \_ Online anonymous communities have a low TTC, or trend towards
              one. IMO the ultimate result of "online" and "anonymous" is
              4chan. I'm defining "online" to mean 'in the web browser' btw
              --toulouse
              \_ there's a reason society has anonymous "we tip" hotlines
                 \_ Yes.  What does that have to do with a CSUA forum?  -tom
              \_ 4chanism can be eliminated by the k5 method.  All posts
                 are default denied and only posts that are voted good go thru
                 yes, this does mean you have to put time into developing the
                 content.  But this is the only way.
                 \_ Or...you know, forget about anonymity and build a community.
                    \_ LOL, it's MR. GOP Talking Points on the MOTD
                    \_ Or you could just not be lazy and build a community
                       based on content, not one based on NAMEDROPPING.
                    \_ The K5 system works, is proven, and will continue to
                       solve the problem of content, without confusing the prob
                       with anonymity, free speech, etc.  As a software guy
                       I like the idea of a Proper Solution to a Bug, not
                       some Blanket Marketing Hype solution. "zomg buy a WAF"
                       \_ But I want EZ Solutions 2 Hard Problemz! --GOP sodan

        \_ I"ll follow you on twitter, brotha.
        \_ Curious, do you go to every Cal Bears sporting game? Or devoutly
           run FreeBSD?
           \_ I was barely aware of the superbowl. My FreeBSD computer just died
              so I'm down to running just Ubuntu, Arch Linux, OS X, and Windows.
              --toulouse
              \_ Why are you staying around Berkeley?  Are you going to go back
                 to school?
        \_ There's no reason for a CSUA forum to be anonymous; anonymity is,
           in fact, the opposite of what the CSUA should be striving for.  It
           should be about connections between people, both at the undergrad
           level and with alumni.  I would join such a forum, and participate
           if the discussions are interesting.  -tom

12/18   What happened to PINE?  which mail client can we use on soda now?
        I haven't been following the trend on csua.  Thanks
        \_ Apparently you haven't been following much of anything. Pine ceased
           development four years ago, replaced by alpine. Mutt also works. The
           mail spool is stored in Maildir format, not mbox format, fyi. With
           regards to reading `whoami`@soda.berkeley.edu mail, you can use
           IMAPS on <DEAD>mail.csua.berkeley.edu<DEAD> to access it, but mail hosting is
           due to be shut down any month now, and switched over to forward-
           only.  tl;dr: the only long-term solution is to use a .forward file
           and forward your mail to !csua.
           P.S. If you have a CSUA problem then contact the CSUA. root@csua is
           there for a reason. Nobody reads motd anymore, except on a lark.
           \_ Thank you so much!  Apparently I did have a .forward, one of the
              reason I haven't paid much attention to the email clients on
              soda.  just recently I have not been getting any forwarded email
              from csua.  so I decided to log in and check mail.  Thank you!
              \_ Well, it is true that forwarding seems to be wonky at times,
                 for some reason. We're not sure why.

5/6     A bit tardy, but please welcome our new politburo! Nathan Fair is very
        diplomatic, and sharp to boot. He'll be an excellent interface for the
        CSUA to the outside world. Mikey is reprising his role as VP. Samantha
        Dove is our new Treasurer, and we hope that her penny-pinching will
        serve us well. Angie is moving from Treasurer to Secretary, where she
        plans to walk all over the hosers who mess up the office, rather than
        the other way around ;). Finally, there is Jessica Pan for Events, who
        has been doing her part running events behind-the-scenes already, and
        will be responsible for keeping up the good work!

4/24    Why is soda being retired in ~70 days? What's going to happen
    to the physical box?
        \_ What? Where did you get that information? Also, soda hasn't
           physically existed for like a year or two now.
           \_ Hmm, then what does "There are 71 days remaining" mean?
          \_ No clue. Some random person having fun. We leave the text blob  up
             because what reason would we have to interfere and take it down?
              \_ this is who we are

        \_ you know, AWS is so cheap these days, we should just host it
           on AWS. Advantage: alumni can handle the sysadm job... it's
           hosted outside of Berkeley.
           \_ You know, I think the csua should stay inside berkeley. and
              not be "amazon campus outreach".
           \_ Seattle is nice I hear, how's Amazon paying you these days?
           \_ Sweet you should just start up a host and not tell the undergrads.
           \_ im not sure you know what you are talking about.  Amazon bucket
              storage is very cheap.  Hosting VMs at Amazon, not cheap.
           \_ An alumnus can technically handle the sysadm job now, because our
           machines are all virtualized anyway.
           \_ Whoa. I had no idea. Who owns/runs the physical hosts?
              \_ The VP. Who did you expect?
                 \_ Sorry, the syntax, "our machines are all virtualized" made
                    me think that CSUA no longer owned physical machines, just
                    VMs hosted elsewhere. (Hey, UCB should build a cloud?)
                    \_ Wow are you in marketing?  What other buzzwords do you
                       recite?
              \_ Nothing is stopping you from doing it now, just set up your
                 AWS and leave.  Seriously.  Quit bitching and moaning- we are
                 lucky this exists.  Just leave.

           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 !

           it into a forum on something like yahoogroups?   motd become a
           google wave doc?

        \_ What does this mean to the operation of http://csua.berkeley.edu?
           \_ Nothing.
        \_ Who is moving into the current CSUA space?
           \_ It'll become an administrative office for two people. The new room

                 accept?
                 \_ Because according to another professor, due to groups
                    moving to CITRIS (Dai Hall), and fairly major department
                    staff layoffs, there is /not/ a space crunch.

9/6 A professor is trying to take 337 Soda from us. He sent us an
    email at 6 on Friday before the 3-day weekend. Apparently it's
    almost final and we _JUST_ got notified. >:(
    \_ I can donate $100. Will that help?
       \_ It will help the CSUA, but it will not help the room situation.
          \_ What if I donate $100 to the professor?
             \_ Gee, how ethical. That's sure to convince him of our integrity!
                \_ Integrity can be bought.     -Republican Party
                \_ Money sometimes oils the wheels of justice.
    \_ Who is it? Let's email him/her/it.
          \_ Professor Sequin
       \_ That would be a bad idea. He doesn't like the CSUA and he has the
          power to do it, so I don't think alumni could help by talking nicely.
          \_ We could email the alumni association and tell them that the
             main reason we give to the school is because of the CSUA. Are
             you going to get another office? -ausman
             \_ Yes. It will be 80% the size of our old office, and < 50%
                of our current office. Calculations say that it will be a fire
                hazard given our level of membership. It's keypadded so it may
                mean we can't have an open door. It has a toilet that the
                janitorial staff does not clean, and no door to Soda proper.
                It's the former help desk 'not a help desk' room. 337 will
                become an administrative office for two people.
                \_ That's the old XCF office. What happened to 343?
                   \_ It'll still be ours, but the question of whether it
                      can be reverted to the CSUA office is in the air. In
                      the case we can't, we'll probably still have to supervise
                      it, from across the building. Fucking astounding.
                          \_ The old XCF office is probably a lot more
                             reasonable for what the CSUA does these days.
                             \_ I disagree. What do you think the CSUA does
                                these days?

        \_ I'm glad at least you guys could fill all seven offices this time.
           Its really a shame that the amendment failed, the politburo is
           too heavyweight at 7 officers (some of whom are so superflous,
           there is little need for them to give a crap).  I wish you guys
           had proposed the amendment in a way that might actually convince
           some people rather than "hey, so we want to do this." -mrauser
           \_ hey, is it kosher to top-post like this? anyways, I dunno, if we
              have enough officers to fill the 7 spots (as we did), I'd rather
              have the larger offices. Part of my consideration in voting
              against (I was initially for) was that I wanted to pull some more
              people in to the CSUA, and so we can rely on others if some of us
              happen to be busy (especially since 3/7th of Politburo will be in
              CS150). --t
              \_ You have been here for a week, don't start becoming a format
                 nazi.  I find it astounding that you voted down the amendment
                 seeing as I could not find a single place where you voiced
                 any dissenting opinion to it.  Why didn't you voice your
                 concern instead of silently hoping for failure.  The concern
                 you gave was the original reason for the amendment but it
                 completely failed.  Do you not remember an entire semester
                 where steven held two offices because you couldnt find a
                 single person who could act as events director? The rationale
                 for the amendment is clear from your description.  Right now
                 the "larger" offices are the offices taking up the majority
                 of the responsibility and work burden for the csua.  The
                 amendment would have left you with positions with more
                 balance between them instead of the large disparity now. -mr
                 \_ I've been here for two weeks, at least. Also, I have no
                    obligation to email you when I change my opinion, but FYI
                    I did talk with other members of politburo about this,
                    outside of politburo. That I sent out the email surveying
                    possible candidates for each of the position should indicate
                    to you (after the fact) that it wasn't a sudden decision,
                    and (though it's also not something I'd email you about) I
                    CSUA members for intent to run should indicate to you
                    (after the fact) that it wasn't a sudden decision, and
                    (though it's also not something I'd email you about) I
                    okay'ed it with a few politburo members. And of course I
                    took into account Steven's dual-position. Do you think I'm
                    an idiot? To me, balance was not really the issue; if
                    anything the low-stress positions such as librarian and
                    secretary are IMO a good gateway for members to test how
                    much they want to involve themselves in managing CSUA
                    affairs. It's why I ran for secretary in the first place.

12/9    Here's an idea for a CSUA project (I think it's been done before, but
        never in a way that took off)... a web-page that lets you create
        polls, authenticated against soda. e.g. "How much do you make?"
        "What OS do you use?". Poll results would be "pseudo"-anonymous.

12/4    Maybe you should have the CSUA initiate an ongoing CS project it could
        be known for, and thereby have more of a raison d'etre for the hardware
        choices.  For example a game development thing open to any and only
        members.  It could perhaps offer experience/tutelage in more practical
        aspects of CS than the academic stuff, but not just pointless IT
        exercises like you guys seem to be focused on now.
        \_ Not a bad idea, but last time we started projects, they died from
           neglect. --toulouse
           \_ So do something small.  Get an ipod touch and have an iphone
              development contest.  Give people 1 month to come up with
              something cool and give away the touch to the top prize.
              The CSUA should be all about getting people interested in
              CS.  There was a time when "having a unix computer that was
              on the internet" was a good way to give people an incentive
              to learn about cool computer stuff.  That day is long gone.
           \_ The lottery scheduler was the last project I remember. What
              other projects were there? -crufty-alum
        \_ Didn't help the XCF.  (RIP)
           \_ Well, maybe their project and club is too boring.  CSUA starts
              from being a social club; a project like this would have to
              be lightweight enough to keep people interested as an aside from
              their school work.  I don't think some OS research project is
              appropriate, for example.
           \_ XCF had other problems, but honestly, CSUA is getting less
              and less relevant these days.
        \_ Maybe you can start by organizing small groups interested in
           contributing some feature to an open source project. People working
           alone or towards a non-well-defined goal tend to be unmotivated.

           to "she really wants you man!" just 'cause she came over to talk
           to this guy.  Maybe he can convert her craving for attention to
           a romp in the hay, but I doubt a 20-year-old college hottie is

5/2     Is the CSUA office moving?
        \_ Yes.  Although the CSUA office appears to be located in a static
           position on the surface of the earth, the earth's surface is in
           constant motion as the very thin plate of rock the office rests on
           shifts across a giant ball of magma.  The earth itself is spinning
           at roughly 24 mph.  It is also moving around the nearest star, we
           call The Sun, at a rate of one revolution per approximately 365
           days.  At roughly 93 million miles in a slightly elliptical orbit
           we leave it to the reader (or google) to find out how fast that is.
           The Sun is moving through the Milky Way galaxy once per 64 million
           years while the galaxy itself is on a collision course with another
           nearby galaxy.  But don't worry about that.  Long before this
           galaxy collides with another thereby destroying the CSUA office,
           the molecules of the office itself will be reabsorbed into the
           Great Soup Of Stuff that the universe is made of and long forgotten
           by the survivors of any current species.

4/24    Is it cool that Politburo is spending $600 on XBox 360, even if it is
        ASUC money? How about hardware that doesn't crash instead.
        \_ Video games are a huge recruiting resource.  While I agree it'd be
           nice if soda wasn't probabilistic, having an xbox 360 in the office
           probably brings in more new members than anything to do with soda.
        \_ Do XBox 360s crash? They may be doing just what you suggest.
           \_ Seriously. Regardless of changes in youth culture, you can't put
              "played video games" on yer resume. I always thought there was an
              educational mission implicit in the CSUA's activities.
              \_ Nor can you put "ate food at bbq".  Clubs are clubs.  Social
                 events are part of the club.  A video game system in the
                 office is a social thing.  Previous generations had a snes
                 and a ps2, this is about the same.
                 \_ I have always viewed the CSUA primarily as a social
                    organization; the goal should be to build community.
                    Game-playing can be part of that, and game-playing has
                    certainly been a large part of the history of the CSUA,
                    dating back to netrek/nethack/griljor, not to mention
                    the Risk tournament.  I do think that the organizaton
                    needs to accomplish more than it currently is to earn
                    the credibility to spend a bunch of money on a game
                    system.  If the CSUA is viewed as "that office where
                    geeks just sit around playing Xbox," and the basic
                    business of the organization isn't being taken care of,
                    it could lead to serious problems with the CS department
                    and with the ASUC.  -tom

4/13    Yes, tom can be obtuse, but he's not the only one wondering why soda
        isn't reliable, why mail isn't reliable, why there aren't any help
        sessions, why meetings aren't publicized, etc. etc.  I realize the
        csua has had fallow periods, but this seems unprecedented in the
        10 years that I've been member.  I realize that times have changed
        a lot, but I would be sad if the institution that helped me so much
        in my time at Soda were to wither and fall away.  !(dans || tom)
        \_ Frankly, every alum assumes that because soda is not being
           administrated well that the students are not being served.  This
           is not the case.  Sadly, by far the majority of new memebers will
           never log into thier soda account.  The machine is no longer a
           "necessity" to new students, who all have one or more personal
           computers powerful enough for thier needs.
           The meeting publicity is a good point, and I've been talking to
           polit trying to get them to be more proactive about getting the
           word out.  But the lack of visible publicity is not a good
           indicator because events have been occuring.  We put on at least 3
           helpsessions in the first few weeks as well as 2 general meetings,
           a video game tournament, broomball, movie nights etc.  Things are
           happening, the club is not coming to an end.
           We are going to work toward making soda more reliable.  At the
           moment, there are very few people helping the VP out, and he is
           overburdened with the enormity of being responsible for fixing all
           of the current issues.  That is going to change, which will
           hopefully result in better stability and usability for soda.
           -mrauser
           \_ How can there be no one helping the VP out when there
              are 7 politburo members?  What is the role of the alumni
              relations politburo position when there is no one
              relating to the alumni except to complain about them?
              Do you really think that current students don't need to
              have information available on the CSUA web page?  (I see
              that some contact info has been put up, after 5 months
              of nothing being there--that's a start).   -tom
              \_ Sadly, the current feeling is that whenever there is a
                 problem with soda, its the VP's sole responsibility to deal
                 with it.  It actually doesn't make sense for the other
                 members of politburo to be co/assistant VPs, because they
                 each have job responsibilities that need to get done.  But
                 right now, darch isn't recieving very much support from
                 root staff, because most of them are so jaded and
                 disgruntled that they don't wish to help out (except mconst
                 who is saintly in his patience).
                 As far as I can tell, the two alumni and industry relations
                 officers have done very little at all.  This is a result of
                 us not having a good person for the job and just needing it
                 filled.
                 I think the website is a huge resource which right now the
                 current politburo is wasting.  But, seeing as I am not on
                 politburo, its not my job to fix thier screw ups.  I have
                 mentioned this to them many many times, so they know abou it,
                 but apparently its not a large enough priority to restore it's
                 functionality.  Whats even worse than the website, is lately
                 minutes of meetings have not been taken.  Both of these
                 issues are a function of the elected secretary just flaking
                 out and quitting about a month into the semester (what caused
                 that might have been _my_ bugging him about the website).
                 I don't mind answering your questions, but I've already
                 served 4 semesters on politburo and I want to let the current
                 group make thier own decisions/mistakes, though I try to
                 influence them in the right direction (by pointing out errors
                 like not taking minutes). -mrauser

                       answers strikes me as a little presumptuous. -dans

3/30    I've been in CSUA for roughly 14 years, and during most of that
        time (13 yrs) it has been a stable environment.  It's only been the
        past year or so where it's been having a bunch of issues.  Is there any
        reason why now?  Did CSUA lose funding?  Admin Support?  Or something
        that drove it into the unstable environment it is today?  I know it's
        been a quasi-volunteer effort, so I appreciate the attention it has
        been given, but did the volunteerism just fall-off the past year?  Not
        trolling, seriously wondering.
        \_ soda moved to a linux box
           \_ That's a symptom, not a cause.
        \_ too many new hot cs girls? no time to be a geek
           \_ too many mmorpgs, no time to be a unix geek. Seriously, in
              recent years I've noticed that fresh grads are far less
              interested/knowledgeable about unix than in the late 90s
              and early 2000s. Even the ones who run Linux are way to
              dependent on guis and point and click. I think that the
              world has moved on and we crusty old geezers have been
              left behind.
              \_ Great, this week I've been called a "crusty old geezer" and
                 bought a walkman I used at Cal that is titled "vintage" on
                 eBay.
                 bought a walkman I used at Cal now labeled "vintage" on eBay.
                 \_ On my 31st birthday I was asked how it felt to be
                    a member of the AARP by an undergrad. It was ment
                    as a joke, but still being around kids who were
                    barely alive when 4.4BSD was released makes one
                    feel OLD. I wonder what it will feel like when
                    they start playing U2 on the "oldies" stations.

              \_ Actually, mead seems to have it mounted read-only.  And it
                 looks like they're trying to move it to maildirs, and failing.

2/11    \_ Is POP back up?  Haven't got it to work since Soda got back
        up.  (SSL  http://soda.csua.berkeley.edu port 995)
        \_ Legitimately curious, why use POP when you IMAP is available to you?
           -dans
           \_ Uh, isn't IMAP still down?  I still can't access it
              -pmw
              \_ I neither know nor care.  I forward mail off soda to a box
                 where I run IMAP. :) -dans
           \_ In the past (1997) when I used IMAP, it would mark my messages
              as "read" when I read them on my client machine.  I don't like
              this, I like to have the messages as two distinct instances, one
              on Soda and one on my home machine.  If I read it on my client I
              want it to still show and unread on Soda.  Also, IMAP is more for
              people with always on connections, which I don't have.  That's
              why I prefer offline processing (Pop) vs interactive processing
              (IMAP).
              \_ Hmm, I don't understand why you'd want things you've read not
                 to be marked as read, but if that's how you work, more power
                 to you.  It's worth noting that many modern IMAP clients, eg
                 OS X's Mail.app, have excellent offline modes, which serves
                 the same purposes as POP, but with IMAP's richer semantics.
                 -dans
                 \_ Thanks, maybe I'll check it out again.  10 yrs of software
                    development may have fixed my intial hang-ups.

              going to hurt the current and all future generations.  Success
              isn't about what you know, your GPA, or which school gave you
              what letters on your diploma.  It has always been about who you
              know.  Oh well.  If any of the politburo are reading it would

12/29   Soda Update:
        Sorry for breaking the ever-so interesting topic of Bush bashing,
        etc.  Anyway, as most of you have probably noticed, Soda did not
        go down as we had anticipated, which is good and bad.  Basically
        card keys are not working yet, due to system issues on the UCPD
        side of getting cardkey access before the end of the term.  I am
        anticipating that cardkey access will be available immediately
        following the new year, so we will attempt to try our Soda
        maintenance again after the new year.

        In the mean time, enjoy your time and use of Soda.  I will let
        you all know when Soda will be out of service.  Until then,
        I wish everyone a happy new year.
