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

Applied, thanks :)

(I use Bluefish and sometimes Kate)

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.

Thanks :)
