Are you thinking of Erythro (Jani)? He was from Finland.
Yeah, that's it.
But I also recognize emphyrio. oh well, I'm old and it doesn't matter.

Try not to break anything if you visit.
WOW, Flashback! Had to read the URL twice... Yaggdrasill was a BBS in MN several moons ago....
Let's see... dial-up Citadel, Sysop was Emphyrio... Still listed in the MOO list as of fall '94 :) Was one of my many stomping grounds....
That be me. Ran it on an Amiga.
I still use Emphyrio as a handle quite a bit too.

Mon Mar 02 2009 19:09:27 EST from Harbard@uncnsrd (Uncensored)Hot damn... I don't remember if we ever met face to face at any of the MN runs, but at the time (and still on most systems) I go by Campagolo. I ran Campy Land on Cit-86 from fall '91 - 93 then changed the name to Great White North for a few years (and started running Citadel/UX). It's great to see old familure "faces" from the past. :)
That be me. Ran it on an Amiga.
Do you remember Machine's Machination?
I was machine back then.
I remember Great White North, but not Machine's Machination. I did not do a lot of get toghethers. I was working over-nights back then. Slept during the day, worked at night. My sleep patters are STILL screwed up. One big party I went to was down south of the cities. It was hosted by K-9 who ran the Doghouse. That was one BIG damn party. He had a farm in Farmington (I think). It was a farewell party for a guy named Union Jack. We had to be careful where we parked or we could run over people who were camped out. Several bonfires going, lots of alchohol.
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised you can't remember Machine's Machination. It was not around for long (maybe about a year or two), and did not have a large presence.
Is there a publicly available proxy server?
I'm still fighting firewall problems, and it just occured to me that while I can't get our company'sproxy servers to work, I have a tunnel out, so I just need a proxy server somewhere on the web I can use.
And I'd really rather not install one myself, unless it's braindead simple.
Same idea to proxy through a linux box. Use it all the time for testing the "outside".
You'll actually need another computer to proxy through though.
If you don't have one, let me know. You can use my cgi web proxy or a ssh shell on one of my servers.
Now I'm just trying to figure out what happened to inetd
I know it chnged to xinetd a while ago, now I'm running ubuntu is there a similar service like inetd?
After all these years I never noticed I wasn't running [x]inetd.
So I got it working.
tunnels and packetbouncers and proxys all over the place, but I can update eclipse and it works.
Slow as shit but it's better than zero.
Or do I have to worry that my motherboard or drives might be SATA (not SATA II)???
My drives just said 3.0Gb/sec. Is that sata I or II?
You can use a socks proxy too, firefox supports it, just plug in the ip
address of your socks proxy and you're done.
The problem is eclipse. I'm trying to do software updates from eclipse on my sandbox (since I finally got vnc working, it's now at least somewhat usable to use eclipse on the sandbox.)
Of course I'm not there yet, now I'm fighting to get subversion to work, then I'm sure nothing will compile, but I'm getting closer.
Hey Ford, are you familiar with "ssh -D" ?? If not, read the man page
and rejoice. It turns your SSH client into a SOCKS proxy, which you
That's the kind of thing I was looking for, but it's got to be an http proxy, the new standard of firewall avoidance.
Tell me they don't have an ssh or some other type of tunnel that can maintain a persistent socket over an http proxy. That's all we REALLY need, then everything's fair game.
With judicious use of my packetbouncer, a few ssh tunnels and micro_proxy, I've gotten past that hurdle.
