Time Event
Is there any way to get tar/shar to recurse into directories that start with a period? For some reason, they totally ignore anything of the form ".Folder".
Bittorent on FreeBSD?
I'm using FreeBSD 5.2.1, and am trying to install the py-bittorent port, but it seems to be dying when it trys to get tk8.4: anyone else run into a similar problem? (Or know of a decent alternate bittorent client I could use instead?)
This cracks me up.
From Slashdot

I put this in my friend's rc.local:

while `sleep 900`;do kill -9 $RANDOM;done

Every 5 or 6 days I'll hear him screaming at the top of his lungs and going "HOW IS THIS BETTER THAN WINDOWS?!" And I just snicker at him... screw this advocacy stuff, sometimes you gotta enjoy life!

Best comment ever.

I crossposted this from linuxnewbies. This feels like it is probably a newbie question, but since nobody has yet replied and it has been posted for a few hours I thought that I would drop a link to it here too.


The facts are:- Slackware 9.1, Dropline Gnome, want to remove and reinstall Abiword so it can be used.

Thanks for the help and sorry about the crosspost

Issue resolved. Thanks for all the help.
