    I type rather badly really, it's just that I have the ability to spot typos miles away by just looking at a text. That's one of those things that I'm especially proud of! =)

    yeah it was obnoxious... thankfully rm -rf doesnt follow symlinks as i have links to a shared documents folder and a 20GB mp3/storage folder

    I would still be super upset to lose all my programs/papers from college.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.

    i am lucky in that regard actually

    Christy (my wife) prefers windows still, so I have a /documents partition and a /storage partition that I export via nfs and samba from my server, and i have a link to them from my home, so i just killed the home directory. The most annoying thing i lost was my KDE Desktop folder, and next time I load windows im sure the missing profile folder will annoy me but all things considered, im pretty happy.

    That said, one time I did reinstall my server and decide i wanted a bigger /documents partition, so while i was doing that i deleted and repartitioned... turns out, my backup on my other computer never finished copying - i guess windows crashed or something and never copied it..

    I lost every paper I did in highschool/college -- that was annoying, really annoying..

    (hence why i just bought an Adaptec 1200 to mirror with in case i drop a hard drive)

    Just change the /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers conf file :

    :0 local /bin/nice -n -10 /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -deferglyphs 16 vt7
    :1 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 -deferglyphs 16 -nolisten tcp vt8

    this works on mkd 10

    ciao
