MOTD::Archive::Summer 2013 (18 August 2013)

Spring 2013 MOTD

No More Quote of the Week

I have decided to discontinue the QotW (Quote of the Week) in my weekly lecture notes. The QotW was started during the fall 02012 semester. Note: On 11 August 02013, GDT::Quotes contained 1284 quotes.

26 July 02013

I have been sick from 23 June to today (26 July, although I'm not 100%). In a nutshell: It has not been fun and it included a three day stay in the hospital.

11 May 02013

This is the 48th edition of the MOTD. The Spring 2013 MOTD has been added to the MOTD archive.

The MOTD blog was named after the /etc/motd file used on Unix systems. Unix systems are multi-user systems and SysAdmins use the /etc/motd file to communicate messages to users upon log in.

I should let the MOTD die, but I can't. This 15-year-old blog could be deleted using one command-line: rm -rf $motd

The MOTD suffers from a severe case of linkrot (i.e. broken hyperlinks), but from day one the MOTD was considered a WORM (Write Once Read Many) resource. What you read on the MOTD is what I posted and the linkrot provides a picture of just how much the WWW has changed over the last 15+ years.
