Scott, your transition wiki page doesn't mention the name of the new server, but I saw in the email I received today that it's sh.sonic.net. I think that should be mentioned on the transition page. I just tried a direct connection to sh rather than shell, and it worked fine. Although--quelle dommage!--fortune isn't working!! Oh noes!!!
As it happens, after I switched from Eudora to Apple Mail last year, I accessed mail on the shell server less and less. I see that running mutt from my shell home directory reports that it doesn't find a mail file, which I expected after reading the transition wiki. I think at this point I'll just let that go rather than converting the file.
Scott, I didn't quite understand your comment about cron jobs. Will those keep working after the switch?
I just got the error message "trn: Command not found." Will trn be enabled on the new shell, or do I need to do something?
* Access to sh.sonic.net is okay for me; I assume that shell.sonic.net will work through the transition
* fortune isn't working
* I'll stop reading mail from the shell
* I'm not clear what's happening with cron
* trn isn't working
