I'm also in Fenner Hall. ra0 was working when I updated my laptop last
week. At the moment I can ping it (, but just get a
connection refused when I try to connect to it on port 3128. I also
just tried SSHing into tridge and connecting from there with the same
result, though I don't know whether that is normal from tridge.

On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
