Subject: viss needs a shell!

Okay, well I don't actually *NEED* one, but the majority of my work is infrastructure based. I'm an infosec and 
systems architecture consultant. I have lots of customer boxes that I help maintain and it would be very helpful 
to have.

5 reasons I should have a shell:

- I could use another point of presence to ssh to/from, socks proxy, and do traceroute/ping tests from
- I gave you guys free boobies
- I offered a scotchy bribe
- See #2
- See #3.

- Not being certain specifically what you guys are looking for, I can be general about it

- Another set of eyes for infosec related stuff
- Another set of eyes for sysadmin related stuff

Dan,

First, for any staff members who may have missed the Twitter convo, please
refer to that before responding.  Cancer Omega may ignore this request, so
you're on your own with him; he hasn't paid attention to anything I've
said since that /etc rm * incident years ago.

I guess none of us here really need shell accounts either, but we *like*
them.  Not sure how a shell account on attrition.org would help you
maintain those boxes; grex.cyberspace.org and sdf.lonestar.org offer free
shell accounts as well.  If you're assuming that a shell on attrition.org
would get you root access... no.  Not just no, but hellz no.  No offense
intended, that's just how it goes.

": " 5 reasons I should have a shell:

See above.  Grex and LoneStar.  They even take donations for enhanced
access, last I remember.

Over the internet???  No way!  :)

For Jericho, maybe.  You forgot me, Cancer Omega, d2d, cji, and Apacid.
We're all married.  Think "pro bono legal advice" next time.

So you fell two short.  Not good. ;)

Sorry, man.  Only #1 would come close to qualifying there.  #2 and #3 are
essentially the same thing, #4 doesn't help, and #5 is free on
YouPorn.com (among other locations). Please do send mail if you think you
have anything for #1, but this ship won't float.

#6 Giving up so easy, not a good sign.

Subject: Re: viss needs a shell!

I'm afraid we have a bigger problem here. Section 47, Clause 12, Paragraph 9 of the Attrition Rules Of Operation 
(AROO) clearly states that:

"Fans of Tango and Cash must be anally violated with a russet potato at every opportunity. Furthermore, under 
no circumstances are they to be granted shell access."

Your only saving grace may lie in Section 14, Clause 2, Paragraph 3889 of AROO:

"Connoisseurs of scotch may be forgiven for minor transgressions, which may or may not involve a red potato."

So you see, not only do we have the question of whether or not your publicly stated affection for Tango and Cash 
is a "minor" transgression, but there is also the issue of a russet potato being a valid substituite for a red 
potato.

On top of that, Lyger already has a 25-pound bag of russet's packed for con...

a.l.

I hate radishes and beets make me projectile vomit.

How's that for something you thought you would never (want to) know?

P.S. Not going to con this year.  I hope the next time I travel I'm in a
hearse.

A friend is a pilot - we're chartering a 4 seater cesna to fly from San Diego to Vegas.
It'll be neat telling people "Oh I have no idea when we're leaving, let me check with my pilot" :D

outside of that, its about 2x as expensive as booking through shitty shitty southwest.

A relative is the Wing Commander for the Civil Air Patrol in an unnamed
Midwestern state.  The last time I was in a Cessna I was 14, he was flying
it.

Add to list of other things that make me projectile vomit, you have fun
with that now.
