Updating the e-Log

To add or modify an entry to the LAC e-logbook you need to log into For security reasons telnetting into this machine is forbidden, and you MUST use the secure substitute of telnet: secure shell. Usually it is available on any unix machine.So, from any other account just give the following command

ssh -l web

You are supposed to be the user "web".
Of course you will be asked for the password.
If you don't know it, email me.

Then, you will see this prompt

[web@pcaiace2 ~]$ []

just give

  • cd Logbook
  • ls -l

and you will see something like

-rw-rw-r-- 1 web web 419   Feb 17 09:47 feb99.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 web web 1165  Feb 12 18:24 jan99.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 web web 15517 Feb 12 18:24 up_to_dec98.txt

Now you can modify an existing file or create a new one using an editor like emacs (if you have an X connection) or pico if you have a simple VT100 terminal)

NOTE: Do not create large files by appending too many entries,
it is ok to create a file each month.
