Description (last modified by jdreed) (diff)

Athena 9 had a number of pre-login options, including xcluster, MITVMA, telnet to Barton, and, uh, other stuff.

Some of these are possibly still useful. We should either restore them, or turn them into webapps and alter the kiosk mode home page. This is almost certainly preferable, because, e.g., Barton is now web-only.

  • Milestone set to The Distant Future

Honestly, I like the idea of doing this with kiosk mode. Web applets are easy, gdm is not.

The answer to all of these is /mit/release/web_scripts or something.
