I appreciate everyone's support and I am learning much about UNIX that I
never knew before, but I would like to say this. I have to defend my
sysadmin, he usually does know what he is doing. I can't say that he is
terribly jovial, but that doesn't imply ignorance. He's had to deal with
several denial-of-service attacks recently, both intentional and
unintentional, and I would be grumpy too. <g> And I should have sent him
a note warning him that I would be running DESCHALL, but I never got
around to it.

Oh, and are you implying that I CAN'T break my CPU because of overuse? >:)
