(misc) Note for students and professors using Fortran

Previously, it was required to log into a lab computer (remotely or physically) and ssh to fortran.cslab to access the fortran resources. This is no longer required; please ssh directly to fortran.cs.vt.edu.

As a reminder, if students encounter an error (f95: /usr/local/lf9562/bin/../bin/jwd_fort: SIGSEGV signal received), they can resolve it by typing "ulimit -s unlimited" in bash, or "limit stacksize unlimited" in csh/tcsh. This has been added to /etc/profile, but may not work for students using shells other than bash.

If this fix does not work, the prescribed fix is to switch to bash and compile. This is a known issue, and Lahey's only fix is to correctly set the limit, so there is likely to be no other workaround.
