[3 feet of links deleted ... :)]
Sheng-Chieh, can I ask you a favour?

Can you please contribute all those links to the

Linux - links

and post a reference to there instead of posting
your (more or less) complete list of -no doubt!-
very useful links every time? This is the third
time in only a few days that I've seen you do this.

And once a thread has at least on reply and is gone
past page one chances of people reading it again
are slim...

Thanks!


Cheers,
Tink
