Thu May 24 22:33:36 PDT 2001 — We’ve made some software changes on the shell server which have broken a few utilities temporarily. The items which are currently unavailable include ping, traceroute, ssh and screen.
Sorry for the inconvenience, we will work to get these back online shortly. Please use your own workstation for these tools in the mean time.
In other shell server news, we found that a cable was causing some network errors, causing slow performance, particularly with NFS recently. After some investigation, the cable has been replaced, and we’re back up to full speed. -Dane, Scott and Nathan (the cool cable sleuth)
