General Computing Policies
All users are expected to abide by the rules and regulations specified
in this CSLI computer policy. Failure to do so could result in the
temporary or even permanent loss of your account.
Some Specific Policies
Please do not use /usr/spool/mail to store your mail. For instance if
you use elm, put the messages in your received folder at the end of
each session. People who do not move their mail out of /usr/spool/mail
may find it moved for them.
The /tmp directory is intended for the *temporary* storage of files,
especially those automatically created by mail programs etc. Any file
in /tmp older than 7 days is automatically deleted. To find out
whether you own any files in /tmp, type
find . -user yourname -ls
