5/16    I have a 2400 baud internal modem... selling to the highest bidder.
        Mail me.  --mconst
        \_ I'll take it off your hands if you pay me $5 and shipping. -sfd
         \_ sell it to marco for $1,500.
        \_ Donate it to CSUA.  You can get root power to abuse people.

5/16    Pgzip installed. reellee cool and fast gzip for compressing
        multiple files. bugs to ali. flames to /usr/mail/$user. Don't abuse!
        Ya ain't seen load spikes 'till ya's seen dis!
        New undoc feature: -j option.    -ali
        \_ What's the diff between this and:
           foreach file (file 1 file2 file3 ...)
         gzip $file &
         \-beacuse you doofus, this doesnt allocate resources
         efficiently. i hope you are not a cs major.
           \_ Ten seconds of typing. And the zipped files probably go into a
              single zip file.
              \_ Several seconds of typing, and it would be really lame to
          launch 500 processes if you want to compress 500 files. Also
          launches process MUCH faster.

5/16    Ooooops... for those that care, the OS/2 CSD files in
        /tmp/OS2WinCSD have had the permissions set _correctly_.
        Me stoopid at 1 am in the morning... =) Enjoy the 5+ hour
        \_ /tmp was full, and I nearly wiped it all.  Don't expect this
         stuff to last long.  29 megs is A LOT.  -ERic
         \_ Brilliant idea... now we'll have a dozen more
            users FTP'ing the stuff back into temp.  When
            there's something as popular as OS/2 CSD files,
            can't we leave them in for a few days?  Find
            your space somewhere else!
          \-you dont seem to understand i can delete considerably
          faster than you can ftp. esp if the sticky bit on /tmp
          is removed. used the instructional machines for this.
            \_ I don't think you understand. /tmp was full, and I
          cleaned it out as best as I could without deleting
          yer OS/2 junk for just that reason. I'm just saying
          download it quick, as others might not be so
          understanding. -ERic

        (available around may 21) send me mail... -lt
