I'm not suggesting tsitras stop posting.  However after reading through
a post which was both vague to the point of null content, _and_
grammatically incorrect, I concluded he/she/it is suffering a rather
pronounced case of communications apathy.  It's in his/her/its best
interest to express his/her/its needs/problems clearly.

Noted.  vim autocorrect updated.

Corrected.  With appropriate action taken.

I _do_ prefer not repeating my errors, particularly when they're noted
in public.

Yeah, there's that old mirror self-view / mote-eye impedence problem,
now isn't there.

Tell you what though:  the basic question -- the issue of single-sign on
for GNU/Linux -- is a good one.  It's one I've mulled a bit over the
years, and more than once in the past week.  I'm not aware of a single
readily implemented solution, though there are a few places people are
generally suggested to go for solutions, LDAP among the leading
contenders.  Though personally I've found that to be pretty impenetrable
myself to date.
