1. My comment made perfect sense to anyone not a smug-a-hole. In fact scroll up, you'll find others exactly like it (only some a little more "colorful" than mine)

2. Finding the solution amid all the smug, arrogant comments like yours makes RTFM much more viable

3. I didn't tell him they shouldn't use SUDO, please find the place where I said that, or ask for your money back on that Hook-on-phonics course which is obviously not working for you. I said that its possible you can't give out the superuser password, which is why telling him to use SUDO without pointing out that you'd need the password or showing him how to set the password file to not require one, made no sense.

4. What "own ideas", are you referring to? I didn't have any others than those, that's why I came in looking to see what you "experts" might have. After the fourth of fifth smug comment like yours, I gave up.

But I do have one question for you. When did they get computers in Alabama?

I mean, don't you need electricity and all for that?

This is quite personal enough.
Please cut it out both of you.

A post from 05-26-04, 09:33 AM is far removed from today's concept of best practices.

This is and old thread. The answer today will be different. Also the personal attacks are not acceptable. I'm closing it.
