Just don't ever edit a *nix config file using a windows editor.

While most are smart enough not to screw up line endings, they don't understand how to handle the *nix permissions tucked away in the file system. With the result that the first time one does a safe write:

0) Write to filename.ext.temp

1) delete filename.ext

2) rename filename.ext.temp to filename.ext

you end up losing all the *nix permissions on the file and then your *nix breaks. D'Oh! | :doh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
