3/24    If your screen sockets got blown away in the recent /tmp cleaning,
        you might want to consider keeping them in your home directory
        instead.  Add "setenv SCREENDIR ~/.screens" to your .cshrc and
        restart screen.    -- mconst
        \_ Is there a way to access the processes we had before the screen
        sockets got blown out?

3/22    Help!  I am FAT FAT FAT, and I need to lose weight!
        \_ There's this machine that can help you lose 20 pounds of that ugly
           fat real quick.  It's called a guillotine.
        \_ Try NTFS or v2 of win95 with 32bit FAT (thinner FAT), or maybe
           you could use a nice *nix file system.
        \_ Exercise every day for at least 20 minutes at a moderately
           high intensity, cut your fat intake to 30-50 grams a day and
           stop eating when you're not hungry, not when you can't hold
         \_ ride bike.
           \_ S/he didn't ask whether or not fat was aesthetically pleasing,
              s/he wanted to know how to lose weight. The advice given
              was good. -- reka

3/22    Can someone tell me how to change the file association and
        extension on Win95/NT? I've tried using explorer to edit file
        type, etc etc, and nothing works.
          \_to change the file extension (make sure that you have the file
            extensions turned on (not hidden) and just click the right
            mouse button on the file in explorer and "rename"
            To change which program starts when you open a file:
             " 1 In My Computer or Windows Explorer, click the View
                        menu, and then click Options.
               2 Click the File Types tab.
               3 In the list of file types, click the one you want
                          to change.  The settings for that file type are
                        shown in the File Type Details box.
               4 Click Edit.
               5 In the Actions box, click Open.
               6 Click Edit, and then specify the program you want
                        to use to open files that have this extension."
              \_ from the Help file (try using it) brett
        \_ That's exactly what I tried, but everything graphical icons
           insists on starting PhotoShop instead of LView. I've tried
           taking everything off the list, and the association still
           exists. Now what?
         \_ You can do the same, but instead of edit that file
            type, do a remove of that file type.  So, the next
            time you try to open that file with that extension,
            it'll prompt you for the application you want to open
            with.  I hope this works.  - nduong
         \_ Hack the registry.  But this is generally not recommended
            unless you have training on registry. - nduong
            \_  Sell wintel box, buy real machine.
                        \_ That's ok.  I don't want a machine with an OS
