    I don't think Aragorn ever had the chance to get more then a few "test" t-shirts made. I don't think he was happy with the quality of those. He probably hasn't been able to try again since he moved. Some people are just slooooooooow. :P : :-X

    Yup, after the first wash or two, tux and the logo were no more and I would have just been sending white t-shirts out. I'll look into finding something better here pretty soon, things are starting to settle down a bit, I am trying to spend a bit more time around here

    Good luck with gnucash. No luck here so far.

    I think the "install everything" is a pitfall that all newbies go through. I use Mandrake 8.1 (Dependency hell) and the "Not enough disc space" error on an install actually refers to the size of your "/" partition. I got that message on a 30 gig harddrive but when I upped the size to around 400 meg on the root everything went fine.
    One of the first gripes from a newbie is "Why is it so slow/". Answer: Windows would be slow too if you could load Win98,WinME and WinXP all at once.
    I'm currently going the other way. Initially installing nothing but the absolute neccessities. I use Blackbox for a WM and try to use DE independent apps (ie KDE or Gnome) and it's "smokin" fast.
    Another pitfall newbies fall into is taking Linux "zealots" seriously. I just received an e-mail from a friend I've been helping over the internet. He's going "back" to Windows. This is the age of "giga-harddrives". It doesn't have to be an either/or choice. If your having a hard time with Linux,leave it alone for a while. Go fishin',drink a brew or two,use Windows. The next time you get a little free time and the urge,Load it up. I guarantee that the second time won't be anything like the first and it will gradually get better from there. (This is my "Blind hog finds acorn" philosophy).
    "Relax" that's the best advice a newbie will ever get. I've two broken keyboards and a cat that runs everytime I sit down at my computer to prove it.
