    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    You probably need to run "make install" to install it to the system directories. Also, you probably need to either be root or run with sudo to install it.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
