So, I'm in a cluster printing out my polisci lab pset (pulp-fiction wasn't even close to working).

I sat down at one of these new-fangled beta DebAthena machines, and I gotta say that it's kinda shnazy. The GUI is a little more familiar/easier to use, and it isn't as ugly.

I'm not a big athena user, and the vast majority of my athena use is done via ssh... but still, DebAthena is a step in the right direction, imo.

The next athena release is debian-based.

There are a few machines running this new version in various clusters.

I used one.

I liked it.

That makes slightly more sense.

Aren't you the fuck out of here, though?

Why would it matter if this thing exists since you are leaving in approximately ten minutes?

I never said that it was of particular importance to me.

I just said that it seemed better than the current athena release.

Well I'm sure the course 6-ers will complain that it's too user friendly and, you know, good.

Everything should be command line!
