Atlas HDA

2001-11-20 15:39:16+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

In honor of Thanksgiving, Seth Gordon passed along the Atlas HDA. "You can get to your files all day / on Atlas' HDA / (except your thesis)"

(Definitions for readers who are not MIT alumni of a certain age: "Project Athena" is the networked computing environment at MIT. "Zephyr" is the Athena analog of Instant Messenger. "zfwrite" is a program that lets you forge the return address on Zephyr messages.)

Jaysus, Dan, they'll need more MIT footnotes than that to understand this piece.

- Todd (who works for what's left of Project Athena and found this highly amusing)

P.S. That 750 is long gone. Atlas Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
