  1. 1. grep is to me one of the most powerful and useful commands you will find on any version of *nix. 2. I am always trying to figure out how things work. 3. it sounds cool.
  2. Check your BIOS to see if ACPI is enabled. - grep
  3. try nautilus, at the command line type nautilus smb://
  4. maybe we need to add when to the poll as well
  5. Pick one or make your own suggestion. Just trying to get ideas for a possible meeting in the future.
  6. congrats webster and miss_lia.

  12. I like it. For me not much has changed because I use the same fluxbox desktop. The one thing I did notice was adding my new optical wireless mouse was as simple as plugging it in. It works with no configuration interaction at all, even the scrollwheel.
  13. freshrpms.net has a link for it now. (http://apt.freshrpms.net)
  14. AuthName grep420.net AuthUserFile /home/grep420/www/htpasswd AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthType Basic require valid-user This is an example of a .htaccess file. This will require a password from anyone trying to access the directory this file is located in via the web. When you create your own .htaccess file the AuthName section can be anything you want for the title. AuthUserFile needs to point to the file you are storing your user/password information.
