Re: I do a Big permission mistake

Am I being stupid?  What about 
	chmod -R u+w .*

? Or probably safer to do chmod u+w .* in individual directories.

Are you sure that command below caused this problem?  I would have
thought that adding others read permissions would have no effect
whatsoever on users write permissions.  It seems that this problem is
more likely to have been caused by eg you editing these files as root
and saving them, making them owned by root.
