10/17   Is there a tcsh alias that will prepend/append a directory to my
        alias   addpath 'setenv CLASSPATH \!*:$CLASSPATH'
        doesn't work.
        \_ alias a 'setenv BLAH \!{*}:$BLAH' ... You're welcome.  The man
           pages cover the use of {} around variables in cases like this.
           \_ Embrace the man page!

10/17   I'm beginning to think that mail order companies are jerks. For the
        second time in my life, I've gotten a slightly damaged (and used)
        <fill in electronic gadget here> from two separate companies. I
        noticed the damage only because I knew the gadget very well. Do mail
        companies do this frequently, hoping that some dumb customer would
        accept their slightly damaged merchandize?
        \_ Doesn't matter if they notice.  Did you insist they do anything
           about it?  If not then you're no different than the ignorant jerk
           who didn't even see it.
        \_ Could it be the fault of the shippers (UPS/USPS/FedEx)?

10/17   Is it possible to setup my Linux box (not connectect to the net) so
        that as soon as it launches XDM, it will log in with .xinitrc for me?
        \_ change the initial runlevel to 5 in /etc/initab. make sure
           xdm/gdm is configured properly.  try to use telinit first.
        \_ launch something other than xdm.  -tom
