The events come from the readevent function in alphabetical order and are
printed as they come. It wouldn't be too hard to read them all in to an
array, sort the array and then print them out. I don't have time, right now,
to do that but if you remind me in a couple weeks...

I've attached a script I hacked together a while ago. We always have some
number of 'vestigal' machines that show up whenever we restart nocol
(usually ones that have been removed but NOCOL hasn't been updated yet). I
wrote this script to hide all those. The 'status' message reflects that. You
could change it to read something more appropriate or replace it with a
command-line argument. Note that it's a gross attack--it hides everything
that's Critical. I put it in nocol/bin and run it: hideall.pl >
