Gotta love that 50MB linux. Especially since it can be installed to the HD and run as an operating system. 50 MB operating system.... puzzling.

It's a superb little o/s, been using it for quite a while. Shame there's no PPC compile (I'm sure it's possible, I just have no idea what I'm doing :p)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
