I really should stop staying up 'til 4... at least I woke up in finite time today =)

But anyway, the cool news: Gnus works! It started working after I updated it and gave it a valid NNTP server name =)

And it even supports ssh tunneling!

(nntp "oulussh"
      (nntp-address "tuomi.oulu.fi")
      (nntp-rlogin-program "ssh")
      (nntp-rlogin-user "ulankine")
      (nntp-open-connection-function nntp-open-rlogin)
      (nntp-end-of-line "\n")
       ("nc" "news.oulu.fi" "nntp")))

(Actual server declaration also includes more ssh parameters...)

The bad thing?

The goddamned tcsh, how I hate thee.

Now, the Gnus expects (quite logically) that the remote server speaks NNTP. And "TERM: Undefined variable." isn't actually part of NNTP, you know...

I wish the university would let me to change shell without a Divine Intervention...

Wellwell. Time to face the challenges of the day...

(Let me guess: The hy00zly blasted daylog downvoter scripts again, uh?)


When I went to the university I took some photographs of the nice foggy views outside. (<drifting-thoughts>Maybe I should also take screenshots of Quake for some fraggy views...</drifting-thoughts>)

"The Internet and Computer Networks" lecture: More drifting thoughts. Umm, I got a bit drowsy.

Just one thing that the lecturer said, regarding Spamdexing: "Maybe we should try that in the excercises..." Ugh, I sincerely hoped he meant that we should try that in context of searching, not authoring... =)

I wanted to write more stuff earlier, but the server called nfstu was down so I couldn't log on...


Phwwww... A lot of stuff to do. Hmm hmm. Gnus still doesn't work like I wanted, but I wish it will soon.

I visited the university library today to get some ideas for humppa writeup. The Eläkeläiset record I got a while ago seems to have a song about a gay werewolf or something... =)



God I need a hug... (or you-know-more-deep-kindness while I'm at it...)


I think I need to node more of the SJG's edition of Principia Discordia...

...speaking of which: Not a single +-vote for my "real" writeups today... I'd ask you to waste your votes on the "real" writeups!
