**limitations and policy**
The SDF Public Access UNIX System makes no guarantees in the reliability
or preservation of user accounts, email sent or received and files uploaded
or created by online editing or compilation. That being said, SDF makes a
good effort to perform regular back ups and will restore from those back
ups as quickly as possible in the event of a catastrophic hardware failure.
Lifetime ARPA membership is based on the lifetime of SDF, not of the
user and is non-transferable. The SDF has existed since 1987 and with
your support it will continue to be here.
Members of the SDF Public Access UNIX System are expected to conduct
themselves in an appropriate and reasonable manner when using our facilities.
Illegal activities which include, but are not limited to, e-mail spamming,
portflooding, unauthorized portscanning, unauthorized encryption cracking,
unauthorized storing and distribution of copyrighted data and unauthorized
connections to remote hosts are not allowed. Your cooperation and care in
the use of all aspects of the SDF is greatly appreciated.
