bbubble-8747970Greetings from Jim Dennis

It is amazing to me how busy I have been this month. I answered almost as many messages as in that storm of them wrapping up last year’s backlog.

I especially want to thank everybody this month who piped in to help the Answer Guy with IDE CDROMs under SCSI emulation being really transparent – so transparent, that such CD’s have to be referred to as /dev/scd0.

I’ll really give thanks when I can get back home with Heather and our computers. I have my laptop, but it’s just not the same. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

[ For those of you who were answered by email during this month – look forward to seeing your messages in print next issue. This list by topic has been requested by several, it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and I really think you’ll find it useful. Also, Each question is still listed only once, so those which might fit more than one section have been listed in the section that best applies. — Heather]
