I used to have an account on Soda, and my experience with the machine is that there are a lot of very rude people on the machine, who have nothing better to do than flame people for not knowing UNIX. I finally made a big stink about it, and now soda at least has email@example.com for UNIX questions. Good hackers at Soda, though. Great plce to learn UNIX by watching other people do cool UNIX commands, in the same manner that alt.hackers gives me cool UNIX clue. You can check out an ongoing chat group they have at soda.csua.berkeley.edu by fingering firstname.lastname@example.org, and in fact join in on the chat with "rwall" or by mailing lwall@soda. ObNetJunkieHack: Just happened... the modem to this machine wasn't answering the phone, cutting me off from the internet. I'm a hopeless net junkie, so this was an unacceptable situtaion for me. What did I do? I made a long distance call that gave me net access, albeit one that is too expensive for me to stay very long on. After getting in this machine through a long-distance call, I went over to /dev, looked for something that looked like a modem, and decided that "ttyd00" was the most likely candidate, because "ttyd00" is the tty you're logged in to when you call this machine. I then typed "cat > /dev/ttyd00" and typed in "AT s0=1" multiple times, hoping the modem would get the hint. I then hung up as quickly as possible-- my job at Burger King doesn't give me money to spare on long-distance-- and called this machine direct (local call). It answered, although it took two rings for some strange reason. I'm not sure if this bit of hacking is what fixed the modem, but at least I'm on the net again! BTW, if anyone can read the secret message, and has an answer to the question besides "no", please email me. -- Sam Trenholme-finger email@example.com-PGP:F49C2183787CBC49717524ED25CC90C9
