@gemlog I made an account at SDF, but, doesn't seem like I can do much?

@IceWolf What do you do after you log in? Are you used to a *nix shell?
For my part, I only use it to 'chat' using the 'com' command during live shows on anonradio.
We could do it now though, if you like.
I will login and type 'com' and then join anonradio.

@gemlog I am definitely used to a Unix shell! But this doesn't seem like a regular shell.

@IceWolf i'm not saying about anything. I'm a linux guy myself, but this is a bsd shell.

@gemlog Huh? Shell shouldn't matter Linux or BSD. (: Anyway, I can't even do things like echo environment variables. Or run things by path!

I'm pretty sure this /isn't an actual shell to begin with/.

@IceWolf It is restricted. I don't even know what.
Maybe you are in something else.

@gemlog Says I'm on "otaku". Should I be sshing to something other than

If you ssh to then you are on that. If you ssh to then you get randomly assigned to a server.

@gemlog OH! Okay!

Welp. On "sdf" now...same wonky non-shell.

I think having an actual shell is locked behind having a validated account. :/

@IceWolf yes. for example, I can't execute ssh -D 9999 in order to create a tunnel. But paid members can. I think.

@gemlog Do you get an actual shell, at least?

(And is your account "validated"? Because mine isn't.)

@IceWolf other than I can't tunnel, my login seems just like at home or on a vps.
What are you seeing?

@gemlog I'm in this weird psh shell, and that's it.


@IceWolf just for sport what happens if you exec 'com' as a command and try to join the anonradio room. can you do that?


@gemlog Tried that...not sure if it worked? com is very weird. (: I'll start it up again.

@IceWolf Sometimes the bsd servers do seem to lockup, but in this case it was me just not responding to you. sorry about that.

@IceWolf I see 'siverwolf' was in chat in my other monitor! So sorry! I didn't notice, but you were there.
My very bad for mis-leading you that what you were doing was not working.! :-(
Sorry. Sorry.

@gemlog Oh, oops. Guess that accidental 'w' sent. :P

So that is how to send messages, then! Is there no confirmation that they went through?
