Re: mc Digest, Vol 108, Issue 4

Well, for me, the most essential utility is gpm, and mc is second.
And since debian considers them as unimportant, we can't work together well.
Plus, I've normally got several mc running, and I need X to show me which
one has which path. And slak has got blackbox/fluxbox which does that.
I can't believe that anybody can use KDE 4 !

Capacitors etc. down at AF seems inappropriate. AFAIK it's all done with
hi-freq pulses. I was very pleased with the earphone output of a *.wav,
that I'd generated with some TextToSpeech software.
== Thanks,
PS. didn't you get my direct-mail query re. alpine, since you are a user?
