Ive seen quite a few people who have problems getting the commands for DOS/Unix mixed, so...UnxUtils

If anyone uses this and figures out the syntax for 'find.exe' I would be happy to see a working command.

i use it and i think that the find utility is for looking thru a file and finding a sttring to match.

unfortunately i don't think that the unxutils' sh or zsh is a seperate shell. i think that it just masks the dos and still uses a lot of the dos tools like find but has seperate tools like wget as *.exe apps under the C:\WINDOWS\system32 (windows $PATH). hope this helps more.

/* After an 80 hour work week */
When the girl you are sleeping with smacks you with
a pillow at 4am cause you won't shut up about
computers in your sleep.

/*
* 4:30am after a long coding session right before
* I went to sleep...
*/
When you can't figure out why you can't remember how
to insmod modules into your brain for 5 minutes before
you realize that you the reason you can't remember is
that you there is no way.

/* Everyday */
When you have to hit the backspace key every time you
type 'print' b/c you always type 'printf'

/* And one I just realized */
When you start commenting 'normal' english...

/* Nerds can party too... */
When you are blacked out drunk at a party and you fix
the hosts computer and are very confused when they
thank you the next day.

Actually my brief 4 or 5 day stint with windows was just due to complications with switching ISPs...and usernames, proprietary software..yadda, yadda. unxutils was about the funnest thing I had to play with in windows, but, I am happy to report I am back in Linux with 1.5(or so)Mbits/per second.

Re: you know you're using the computer too much when...(please add your own)

you take the last $47.00 out of your check and blow it on a game instead of putting gas in the car....

When your dreams consist of you creating Function calls and compiling your work.
When you're socially communicating peer-to-peer (In the real sense..) and you start using *Net jargon (lol, wtf, thx, etc...)
When you're sitting in class wondering what you'd be doing right now if your computer was on your desk.
When you wear Polo T-Shirts with little Penguins on the Pocket.
When your Shirts contain ink spills in the pockets.
When you can't live without a computer (After a day without a computer you start your cravings..)

how about, when you no longer have two nickles to rub together, creditors calling, the girlfriend bitching and a chance to go back to school, start an EE degree and become an officer in the armed forces working on real cool Linux apps, end up with a six figure salary with a stable job for the rest of your life, down in Cali but you'd rather sit and find out what's new on your linux box instead....

hmmmmm.... ....Linux..... !
