Hi,
	As some of you may know, recently tsx-11.mit.edu had been
suffering from a shortage of disk space.  Well, John Romkey stepped
forward, and graciously donated a 3.5 gigabyte disk for tsx-11.  It was
installed early last week, and so we no longer have a disk space
problem!

	The new disk is a godsend, and I want to publically thank John
Romkey for making it possible for tsx-11 to grow and support more
distributions, and more software packages.

	I also want to think the expressions of support that I have
received from you all out on the Net.  Unfortunately, due to my being
heavily swamped at work, I haven't necessarily had the time to respond
to you all personally.  

	Some of you had also offered to donate some money towards a new
disk, and I thank you for your spirit of generousity.  If you are still
inclined to donate some money, I urge you to consider donating money to
Linux International's Linux Development Fund.  If on the other hand you
would like to donate money towards specifically furthering
tsx-11.mit.edu as a FTP site, I will also accept donations towards
upgrading the CPU of tsx-11.  It's currently a Decstation 5000/25(*), and
it could definitely stand to be upgraded to something a bit more modern
and with more horsepower.  This would allow it to serve a lot more
simultaneous users and reduce the number of "too many users; try again
later" messages that many of you have experienced.

	Finally, I also want to thank all of the people who have helped
in maintaining the tsx-11 FTP site --- I couldn't possibly handle it by
myself!  Despite their many other commitments, they put in the volunteer
time to handling incoming submissions to tsx-11, and it is they who,
more than any one else, make tsx-11 the valuable resource to the Linux
community that it is.

	Thank you, one and all!!!

						- Ted
	
(*) Yes, tsx-11 was at one point my personal workstation; it's now doing
nothing else but serving FTP now!  I have a Sparcstation-5 in front of
me, that I use for doing my MIT development work on Kerberos.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM
