That's only one of 4 'opinions'. See below.

Well no, not if *I* can see my text that I wrote with kogi.

I'm pre-biased by extra knowledge of the particular circumstances:
Of the 4 krnl 2.6* installations: slak13, kogi, debLenny, debEtch;
the Debs are pointing to WINDOWS.
Perhaps, by the time that I got to test with the 2 Debs, I had already
bumped the bad-connector. But when I initially started, I was very
careful, and slak13 didn't mount it.
To retest if kogi can still R/W, which I expect, I need to swap one
IDE for the CD, and then I'll report back.
But since I've got a well informed user of `Gnus` from the
diagonally oposite side of the globe, if you also use emacs, you
may be able to advise on this more difficult problem:
I've got a tested/working awk script, which does:
<deleteFromInFile allFurther TextBlocks WhichRegexMatch dFile>,
which I call by:
`gawk -f awk.code dFile inFile > cleanedFile`
And then I check how the inFile has been cleaned of repeated
garbage, by comparing:
`cat inFile | wc -l`
`cat cleaned | wc -l`
As you know, these days, if you accumulate 6 pages from a
'knowledge site', by appending the http-ed text to a file,
using eg. lynx, like building a book, you get each 'page',
having the same repeated <header material>...etc.
These repeats is what the awk-script deletes.
Normal editors CAN <search & replace> all further text,
but usually only one line - max.
emacs can <RegexSearch & replace> all further text of
As a previous emacs-slight-experimenter I checked
IF/HOW emacs would do it.
There seems to be problems with multiple RE-syntax in emacs?
So I need to use the already proven awk-script.
Presently, it's very AWKward, since I need to cycle the text
between 2 files, copying the <RepeatingTextBlocks> to dFile.
Obviously, you'd rather have it like a normal editor , where
the deletions, become visible on the single file being edited.
Do you think emacs can use the awk-script to repeatedly
update the 'view' of the same text-file while it's changing,
repeatedly, like a normal editor would show the search
PS. when I do a `df` now the Toshiba LED starts flashing for
about 100secs, which is hardly surprising, given the 4-line USB2?
And now the LED is ON. Probably it was previously not rotating?
Oh no, it's started flashing for 30secs, and 'waiting' the command.
