I pretty much just use apache, perl, php, exim, proftpd, mrtg,
iptables for custom packetfilter for wireless networks and
redirection rules for authentication. . . . .

Surprise & consternation!

I tend to think of myself as a `desktop user', running Linux (no
WinDOSe at all) as a free-lance editor.  That means vi for writing &
editing, Google (mostly) for research, & elementary system
administration.  Add grep & find.  Little else.

So maybe my definitions have gone agley.  No matter: I ought to know
better than to trust labels -- even my own.
