Hello everyone, and welcome again to the world of The Answer Gang. We've had a very active month (657 non-spam, non-administrivia messages) and I'll have to make extra certain to keep the TAG back room well stocked with pumpkin pie.
Of course, given the usual hours that coders and sysadmins work, pumpkins are probably not too hard to come by. Oops, wrong kind. We meant the kind we just scooped bits out of for a glowing Halloween.
This time I dressed in the same costume as my hubby -- a computer geek. I was hacking on this But I don't mind. It's fun. If a whole lot of people say their Thanksgiving this year for the fact the Linux folk are for the most part, helpful souls, then I did my job right.
Anyways, we've got some notes about dealing with those annoying floppies, and some real notes about linux - X, some ftp stuff. I hope you like it. And the Two Cent Tips are worth more than their average share this month. Enjoy!
