My apologies to everyone on the list.
When the message came down the pike from Tim Chase I thought it was a friend
of mine Tim Close who was looking for a quick shutdown for his new Vista
machine. My buddy Tim Close is an avid hunter hence my reference to
shotting his computer.
I haven't ran a Linux machine in over two years and thought I had shut this
newgroup off. Clearly, I didn't.
Again, my apologies to all and sundry for the off-coloured misplaced joke.
We now return you to your regular blinix programming.
