So, a man decides to call himself Random Penguin, rather than, say, Daniel 
Johnson or the less original John Smith, while posting to Linux-IL. Whatever 
his intention was, I don't have a problem with that. There are groups that 
don't allow nicknames, this is not one of them. This has nothing to do with 
law and order in this forum. There were no rule to post under your real name 
last time I checked, and even if it were, how would you enforce that? I don't 
see any nice way to do that other than asking people to sign their mail, and 
that would be a not very popular idea. Besides, I enjoy seeing a cleverly 
crafted "bulletproof" virtual identity. Call me whatever you want, but I 
believe that sometimes these virtuals allow a person to express her/him-self 
better than under the real name. There are topics some people would like to 
discuss while staying incognito. Now, his decision that Linux in Israel is 
one of these topics is none of my business. I like to see who is who in this

I think I found it. Were you referring here to the script you wrote and posted

I agree completely and I don't think that Daniel Johnson (or whatever)
must identify himself legally to us when discussing Linux in Israel or
any other topic. But I also think that when one conducts political
activity - such as organizing a petition - it looks very suspicious if
one does not identify oneself using a real name. I personally am very
loath to subscribe to political activities organized by anonymous
people.

Sorry for not responding earlier. My system crashed and i had to restore from 
backups. 
I did not really understand this. Are you saying there is a limit on the 
number of files i can tar gz?
I also make backups of my emails and there can be as much as a million files, 
pherhaps more because of the mbox style(i think) of holding mails.

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but so far as I know mbox
saves all the emails of a particular folder in one big file. So if you
have 200 emails in 5 folders, then you will have 5 mbox files.

Kmail has another two or three files per mbox folder, so you really
will have 5*n folders, but you get the idea. It's not 200*n.

RE: [Partial Resoltion] Re: PPTP issues and Barak over cable

I did it initially, but barak changed something, I'm not sure if the IPs of their servers or something else and it got the whole thing messed up again. Took me some time to figure out the reason (since the first time I used directions that gave explicit IPs).
 
I think I got the overriding automatic now for the next time. Finding the right gateway is more of a problem though.

Double quotation marks in Unicode Hebrew

Shalom BIDI gurus!

To distinguish, in Hebrew Unicode text,  between quotation marks (מרכאות) and
gershayim (גרשיים), I have been using for the opening quotation marks the
unicode DOUBLE LOW-9 QUOTATION MARK U+201E (Windows-1255 0x84) and closing
quotation marks the unicode LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK U+201C (Windows-1255:
0x93). For geshayim I used of course the unicode HEBREW PUNCTUATION GERSHAYIM
U+05F4 (Windows-1255 0xD8). 

This arrangement looks best for me, although most modern books use (I think
because of sheer laziness) the same glyph for all three (gershayim). However,
I just noticed that Firefox 2.0.0.1 mirrors the LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK and
displays instead the RIGHT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK U+201D (Windows-1255: 0x94).
Firefox 1.5.0.9, Opera 9.10, and MSIE (sic) 6.0 All do not do it. Is this the
correct behaviour  under the UNICODE BIDI algorithm? Should I replace all my
U+201C with U+201D so that they will look OK after mirroring? You can view my
Web pages at http://JV.Gilead.org.il/hebrew/ and
http://JV.Gilead.org.il/FAQ/index.he.html for examples of usage of these
punctuation marks.

Kol tuv,

Zvi.
