Hall's Laws of Politics:
(1) The voters want fewer taxes and more spending.
(2) Citizens want honest politicians until they want
something fixed.
(3) Constituency drives out consistency (i.e., liberals defend
military spending, and conservatives social spending in
their own districts).

(1) Alexander the Great was a great general.
(2) Great generals are forewarned.
(3) Forewarned is forearmed.
(4) Four is an even number.
(5) Four is certainly an odd number of arms for a man to have.
(6) The only number that is both even and odd is infinity.

Therefore, Alexander the Great had an infinite number of arms.

why would you do that?

if you want to turn it off just chmod -x
the appropriate script in /etc/profile.d/

thx


but i have problem with my tcl on my debian box !


I can't find Tcl on this system.

Eggdrop now requires Tcl to compile. If you already have Tcl
installed on this system, and I just wasn't looking in the right
place for it, set the environment variables TCLLIB and TCLINC so
I will know where to find 'libtcl.a' (or 'libtcl.so') and 'tcl.h'
(respectively). Then run 'configure' again.


but i have tcl !
