We use a version of ICSI finger here and gnu finger 1.37 at part of
Univ. of Bonn Computer Science Department, where I'm a part time
system administrator.

It's a nice thing to have, and it's also not too difficult to use as a
picture database the .../lib/faces/de/uni-bonn/cs/ directory, with
some setup of symbolic links. But it gives you pictures for individual
users, not monitoring of anything by picture as faces does it.

I would like (and will do, in fact, if nobody else does it first as
soon as possible) a variant of the faces -H which supports multiple -H
or -H w/o hosts to get a list of all on the ethernet. I already did
(for the ULTRIX DECstations here) a perl script called 'rusers' which
uses finger and understands gnu finger and sun finger output formats.
As soon as I brush it up, I'll put it on the ftp server.
