Sometime during the summer, perhaps as soon as 1 July, UCSC will stop
paying maintenance on the VAX780 that is our present uucp hub. Shortly
thereafter, we will observe a minute of silence and pull its plug
We have begun the process of pulling applications off of the old
computers and moving them to new ones. One of these applications
is uucp. At this writing it is not clear whether community uucp
access will be one of the things that we'll be providing on the
replacement computers. uucp is not considered to be a core service
to our primary user community.
At the present time, I can't make a promise either way as to the
future of ucsc's activity as a community uucp hub. Users for whom
uucp correspondence is anything more than a convenience would do well
to investigate alternative connection opportunities.

nope, you weren't on the list. i've added you, and here's the summary.
summary for may 8th scruz-sysops meeting
who associated system name login
jon luini gorn falcon
jeff liebermann comix jeffl
william ward thinkum hermit
james bohem holycow james
if any present notice something i left out, please let me know so i can
update the master in /usr/archive/scruz-sysops on gorn. --jon
jon luini (firstname.lastname@example.org) will make a quick draft to send to
all of the people who received warner's latest ping about ucscc disappearing.
this will be mailed to scruz-sysops for comments and modifications.
jeff liebermann (jeffl@comix) reports not much hope for donations from large
we need to begin hashing out an outline for the proposal we will submit to
COAC/CATS. this can be done via email over the scruz-sysops mailing list.
we came up with an initial summary of the type of hardware that we will
need for a machine to sit up at ucsc and serve as the UUCP hub. we came up
with the following:
386 motherboard/chassis 8MB ram
150 MB disk space / controller
at least 1 modem to start
here is a brief summary of what we know we have, should we find that
we need to get a machine together asap, for upgrading over time.
jeffl wd1007 esdi controller
fujitsu 2246E 135 MB formatted drive
computon multiport board
fullsize chassis and power supply
ericz maybe 386 motherboard... eric, please clarify?
jonl money to buy something (modem/phone/machine hardware/etc)
jamesl 2400bd modem
external drive box w/ power supply
(maybe) computone multiport board
anyone else who has details on what they have and are willing to put into
this project, feel free to mail me and i'll update a master list. for money
donations, we don't need amounts yet, so just saying that you're willing to
put in money since you don't have hardware is good for now.
the following was postponed due to the lack of folks present.
B. polling schedules
1. try to arrange some sort of intelligent uucp polling between
locally connected machines.
jeffl has UUPC floppies for those who need them.
jeffl reported that other folks are working on fidonet<-->unix gatewaying
already [ rfmail (v0.4.0), binkley (v2.3) ] so he is going to wait on that
to continue his gatewaying efforts.
