well... now that dad just back-handed mom at the kitchen table, let's try and move past this awkward silence and help me with some expect code if we could

pastebin is the expect code ---> http://pastebin.com/WbCPyEVL

it's being called from a bash script that's as close to a one-liner as I could make it...
while IFS=, read -r IP PSWD; do
./expect_script $IP $PSWD
done < test.sd

the problem being, when I execute the bash above the password does not get entered in with "expect", the variable has been verified.(send_user) so the password is indeed there....

any help or suggestions would be spectacular.

This is totally unrelated to whether we will continue to have an NSLUG
twitter account, and I have nothing to add beyond what Ben has already

It might be interesting for those of you who are up in arms that other
people are using Twitter (or any other technology you don't use) to
think about doing some of the following:

  - Find out why they are doing so. Maybe there are uses you haven't
through of; maybe there are studies on how and why people use it that
you could read to come to a better understanding.
  - Consider giving it a try in a safe and controlled way. For example,
you might set up Tor and use an anonymous or pseudonymous account and
try engaging with others using the technology. You might find it more
valuable than you think -- or you might confirm that it isn't the right
tool for you.
  - Consider whether the fact that other people are using the technology
really impacts you. If not, then it might reduce your stress levels to
simply let them do as they see fit without asking your permission.
