I guess this is what happens when you get a bunch of geeks on a mailing 
list... 10% real questions & answers... but 90% squabbling and other bs. 
Come on guys... in the last two weeks people've bitched about long 
signatures, 30K+ log files, the use of internet shorthand, and which 
company to buy your blank CD spindle from. Granted, its Beyond LFS... 
but it should at least have some relevance to LFS. Use the chat list for 
the bs and pipe the "you're getting on my last nerve" complaints to 
/dev/null. This list would have half of much traffic if people would 
stick to asking & answering questions...

And since I know someone else always has to have the last word... please 
consider this thread CLOSED!!!
