Mark Lord's 'symlinks' utility.

2009-07-24 update: it works again
I wanted to report an issue with zsh, but I can't.
The problem is that they've got harsh blocking rules which prevent emails from any @gmail.com account. I went through a lot of trouble to research other email accounts and to sign up for one only to learn that @gmx.com email addresses are also blocked. An old @myrealbox.com account is also blocked.

Seriously people, figure it out and make it work.
Well, I got schooled with all kinds of bootloader and install issues I was having with Unity Linux 0.99-alpha2.
Boy did I get into trouble. I took three pages of notes before I finally managed to scrap 0.99-alpha2 and get 0.99-alpha1 working again.
It's mostly a problem of my lack of understanding too. I'll need to take another pass at the whole affair after reading some advice I got. I know how I'll do things differently next time.
I hope to get into it later this week, although docs are a higher priority at this point since I've left things on auto-pilot for a while.. i.e. nobody was doing anything.
A customizable lightweight panel/taskbar.
Touted as being light. It's not bad. Very annoying to configure, and has no menu.
NOTE: This was an internal release just to hammer out some issues before the alpha is released to the public.
An audio mixer.
Does bunches of stuff. I use it with a hotkey to do quick fiddling.
I had speed issues, as well as anomalies on the background images of some websites, like http://slackware.com/. Most annoyingly was the horrible hanging in the visual editor when making a new post in WordPress. This is using Slackware 12.2 and either Firefox 3.0.11 or 3.5.1, with or without safe mod.
Here's how I solved the issue.
Somehow my postings always have a couple of issues that I find after posting them. I always find myself editing and re-editing and re-re-editing a post to improve it, even though I scan it carefully a couple of times before the initial post. I guess I'm still a wiki user at heart.
My apologies to anyone who is subscribed via RSS, as they will probably be fed the original creation. =/
The problem with developers is they fly off onto wild tangents without any consideration for usability.
I appreciate AJAX. I really do. The reason websites like YouTube are required to use this technique is to save on bandwidth costs.
The problem is that a site is totally unusable. Nomatter how pretty developers make their site, if it uses AJAX it will suck.
