Posted 09-16-2008 at 06:35 AM by ghostdog74

Code:
#!/bin/bash

    dictfile="english"

Hi,

I don't blog that often. To date I have not had a blog! I do read some blogs but the composition along with grammar tends to turn me off. Add in spelling, netspeak or AOL type entries and you will loose me.

I work with the 'Slackware-Links' wiki. More than just Slackware® links! This wiki has been a interesting creation. To date it requires a lot of my time. I do hope it provides useful tools, links and even GNU/Linux to the multiple users.
