march 29 #4, ok so i’m back i just went and looked at that stupid

ranking thing, they also claim you can get multiple e-mail accounts, well

you fucking CAN’T only the staff can. so that’s another lie, it also says

they have online dropp/add, which they don’t. they don’t have 100% wired classrooms.

i can take you to at least 5 classrooms with out a computer. and again it

also says that they have text-to-voice and voice-to-text software in the computer

labs, well they don’t. god this place fucking lies so much, you know if that

article wasn’t so fucking long i’d type it up so you could read it, cause

it’s just a bunch of bullshit too. ok i’m done for now.

March 29 #2, 12:26 pm. so i just got my tax info, i made a whoping

$1802.48 last year. yippy for that, eh. so i’m getting a whole tax refund

of$63 from the IRS and $4 from iowa, yeah. fun, fun, fun. i also got a letter

from the college that i applied to that i really want to go to, they said

that the major that i wanted wasn’t availiable to transfer studdents at the

campus that i wanted to go to, so i had to call and tell them what other campuses

i wanted it to go to, i hope those are good campuses, i haven’t checked them

out. i know one of them doesn’t have any housing, but oh well i’m sure i can

find something. i hope to god i can find something, lol. i dunno, maybe that

wasn’t such a great idea, eh. hmmm. we’ll have to see if i get in then i’ll

worry about the housing issue. yeah that sounds like a plan.

march 29, 7:01 am. so it’s fucking ass early. i don’t have my

first class this morning so i’m trying to get somethings done, as you can

see, since i’m updateing this i’m not getting them done. last night i got

this e-mail from my stats people that i use for this website and it said they

were closing down, so i went out and got a different stats thingy and encoded

it in to all 193 html files in my website. but now it’s not fucking letting

me upload them all, it’s giving me an error after every fucking file is put.

damn fucking ass thing. so i’m getting really pissed about this. damnit. i

didn’t talk to danny last night that was sad. i had that stupid test, i told

you it always messes things up. i think i did pretty good for on it though,

for not studying tell like 10 minutes for it was supposed to start. but oh

well. it was pretty easy. i did however call that boy late last night, wasn’t

home again, so i sent him an e-mail. i told him i was thinking bout heading

to the mall on friday since there’s no classes here and he replied back to

me “that would be kewl if you came on friday, you could stay here if youd like” yeah, whatever. we’ll see what happens, lol. i’d rather go

and stay somewhere in philly, but that’s not going to happen anytime soon,

🙁 well i’m going to go and see if this damn thing will let me update, I’m

going to have to come up with a different thing for this though cause the

files are starting to get to big, i babble to much.

March 29, 2001

March 29 #3. i bet you people didn’t realize how many different

time i update this in a day. i’m going to start doing it like this cause that

way it’s easier for people to see what they’ve read and what they haven’t

cause it’s nothing for me to upload this page 4 or 5 times a day. so ok on

to what i wanted to babble about, the CS department here is so fucking stupid

here’s an e-mail they just sent to everyone: To those

residence hall students who are running FTP services or Unix /Linux machines

The dormitory network connection agreement signed by students includes a statement

precluding the installation or use of server software without prior permission

from Computing Services. This includes FTP services, MS server functions of

Windows, and Unix/Linux variants. We’ve not policed this requirement in the

past. However, these installations are now placing the entire DSU network

at risk. Some of these applications contain large security holes. Last week

someone from outside the University exploited the security lapses on a student’s

Linux machine to hack into and initiate a denial of service attack on a machine

in Rumania. These attacks typically send large packets to the site under attack,

preventing it from communicating to the Internet. Unfortunately, these types

of attacks also consume our router and internet bandwidth, so very little

can come into or leave campus while the attack is underway. Yesterday we received

notification from BIT that entities from outside the University are trying

a standard well known buffer overflow attack to break into FTP servers on

student machines in the dorms. These attacks work by overwhelming the FTP

application with garbage commands. If the FTP server crashes, the hacker can

compromise the computer, take it over and initiate another denial of service

attack, erase files or whatever. Anyone running Unix FTP servers using WU-FTP Daemon should upgrade immediately. At least four unique security holes have

been identified in this package in the last six months. Most systems have

converted to the PRO-FTP Daemons because it is more secure and does not need

to be patched every month. By default most UNIX systems enable FTP services.

Unless you take steps to protect your computer and the OS, you continue to

risk it and the DSU internet connection. If you are running Unix/Linux or

a windows FTP client we ask that you notify Computing Services at 5675. We also ask that you ensure you have downloaded and installed the appropriate

security patches. Since we cannot continue to risk the campus connection to

the internet, failure to protect student machines in the dorms may lead to

a discontinuation of network services in the dorms. yeah, stupid fucks.

so i guess i’m going to have to call and tell them that i’m running Win2k

Server. but i’ve disabled all my ftp and iis stuff so they can’t get to bitchy

at me about it. they are just a bunch of BOFH’s, if you go like 1K over the

disk quota they disable your account and you have to wait 5 working days before

they will reinstate it. fuckers. i’m glad i don’t have to use the damn thing,

and you know this is th #9

tech college for it’s size in the country, well they fucking lied on their

thingy, cause if you go and look it says they give th students 100+ megs of

space on the servers and another 100+ on the webside, well they only give

you a TOTAL of 10. dumbasses. and you know i really like that e-mail, cause

they just had a huge article in the Trojan Times about how they just got a

ton of new Sun systems and how they are going to start integrating them into

the teachings and stuff. well i think they should allow linux and server stuff

in their dorm rooms if they are going to teach it. and you know they would

also fix this problem if they installed a fucking FIREWALL. dumbshits. it

would cost them what $2000 to put in a fucking firewall, but do you think

they’ve done that NO, and you know they jsut got a fucking 1.6 million dollar

grant thingy from gateway to but computers and stuff, you think they could

use $2000 of that to buy a goddamn fucking firewall? they have a bunch of

dumbasses running this fucking network, i tell you they do, i coud run it


March 28, 2001

march 28. so it’s 10:02 am and i am officially bored out of

my mind. damnit. i hate mwf’s cause there’s never anything to do during the

day. i have a test tonight, that’s going to suck major arse. it’s in accounting

which i think i can easily pull off. but i’m going to start to study about

5 or so, the test is at 6, yay. so i called that guy last night, no answer

so i left a message, eh. i’ll try again tonight after the test thingy. danny

and i talked for like 4 hours last night, that was nice. it was so sad though.

i fell asleep holding the phone. i so wish i could go out there to see him

sometime. i really do. really really really do. so what should i do today,

hmmm. i dunno. i spose i could get lab 8 done for that stupid ass programming

class, but then i’d have nothing else to do. oh, we don’t have class on friday,

i guess that’s ok, i’d rather actually have class, but, oh well. i guess i’ll

ave the whole day to do nothing then, lol. hopefully the roomie will go home

and i’ll have the room to myself. yeah, that would be nice. i should go home,

but i’m not going to cause i can’t afford it. 10:12 am, bored. it’s now 2:35

and i have now officailaly switched over to Win2K Server. hehe, yeah, that’s

what i did, i was so fucking ass bored i changed OSes, lol, but by doing this

i got past the bandwidth cap, lol. so this is nice, now lets

see if Win2k really has better uptimes then winME. so far i’ve gotten everything

i needed installed. so i’m all happy, and i can still go back to WinMe, or

Win98 or Linux if i have to, cause i’m just that good, lol. ok, so now that

this is done, i’m bored again, if they weren’t such BOFH’s in the CS department

i would make this an actual server and put my website up on it, but they won’t

let me do that, fuckers. well i’m going to go play with the persmissions some,
