Hi Tushar Teredesai. You said the following on 09/06/03 07:17:

Applied, thanks :)

Two comments on this:
- you can use hints.lfs.org if you prefer but I will link it on
www.lfs.org because the former is redirected to the latter (the
subdomain issue, remember?)
- Is it necessary to change the location of all hints again? I'm gonna
keep it on lfs.org/hints/files/ and add lfs.org/hints/files/attachments/
instead. I don't want people to revise their bookmarks again and this
scheme also makes the creation of the hints tarball easier - I strongly
recommend you keep that one, btw., I found it invaluable when I started
with LFS and the hints.

Sure thing, I've added it to website.html#todo and commented out the
complete list in list.html.
> I finally browsed around the website. You have done a wonderful job.
> Congrats on giving the site such a huge upgrade.
