Really? Wow! Cool! Next time I go to traffic court with 4 tickets in
the past year, I'll bring a free lawyer to help me keep my license...

Well, if I was not slightly more informed than the person who asked,
than it would not have been possible for me to answer. Misinformation
is still information, even if it's wrong. I stand corrected. I will no
longer question what has been answered for me - and thankfully, the guy
with the original question is finally getting some answers.
Ever notice how, if someone posts a real difficult question, they get
no answers..then, if someone posts that same question, but says that
they're tired of trying to get linux to work and that they'll go back
to windows..They get an answer. A lot of answers. Sometimes..you gotta
say the bad thing.

My opinions don't exist, and as such, are not anyone elses. I do not
represent anyone, not even myself, and especially not my employer.
Looking for a 1968 Camaro SS convertible, black interior,
beat-up rustbucket that is in need lots of restoration and TLC.
