yes, I am. I have 3 email addresses:

galtsev at kicp.uchicago.edu (response time about 5 min during work hours,
about 15 min the rest of the day)
galtsev at oddjob.uchicago.edu and sysadmin at oddjob.uchicago.edu (response
time about 30 min during day)

Do you need paper born mail address as well?

from msync-dvd.centos.org::CentOS-incdvd - but I need the ip address you
sync with first to enter an acl for that.

I will be coming randomly from each of 3 IPs the machine bay.uchicago.edu

Please, let me know when you added us to ACL, then I'll change rsync
script. Also: please, let me know if you want us to sync more/less often,
or if you want us to sync at particular times. I can add randomization to
sync time (please, let me know what do you want that randomization to be).
Here is our current rsync schedule (no randomization):

CDT: 2:33 8:33 14:33 20:33
