Things not to do in Linux Part 1

I'm very tired and grumpy today having had no sleep at all. Last night I committed a cardinal sin closely related to the 'rm -Rf *' type of 'accidents'.

A fight had broken out between me and 'Fontmatrix'. Don't get me wrong, I love the program but when it's trying to read a usb drive with 10,000+ fonts on it, it takes me back to my younger days when all I had for company was a 386 running Win 3.11 on a double-spaced drive.

Xmessage choice window in .xinitrc

Posted 04-10-2010 at 01:13 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)
