Re: A favor to ask

Why don't you just look for it on Best Buy's website.  Sure, it will
cost you an extra six dollars to have it shiped, but YOU WILL HAVE IT.
 If it isn't on their website then sorry, they don't have it.  The
last time I went into best buy, about three months ago, they still had
a Suse 9.1 box on the self.  That was in Ithaca, New York by the way.

you have heard of the famous debian developers reply 
to questions as to when the actual release date will be: 
"when it's ready"

the rest of the story is:
there is a little know clause in the debian developers rule book that
says no stable release will be publicly released, before, all included
software is a minimum of 18 months out of date don't you? ;-\

and you think I'm kidding .. lol
hide and watch.

Question: Share your bash tips?

Posted by Steve in the Questions section on Fri 29 Apr 2005 at 02:27

GNU Bash is one of the most common shells in the Linux world, it's also
the default shell on Debian systems. People who use it frequently and
browse the manual usually learn something new, here I'm going to share
two tips I cannot live without. What are yours?
