Re: Classic Gnubie accident

So, happy as I am that you guys found an excuse to chat about your
respective girlfriends here, I think mine would prefer I talked to her
a bit rather than staring at a screen uttering expletives, so I took
the easy route, made another user, transferred the settings and files
over from /home/anthony . Now I can startx and even check my mail!

I'd like to know what exactly happened and perhaps to get my user
(anthony) and my settings back iat some point so, what should the
permissions be for all the settings (invisible) files in my home
directory /anthony/home ? Are they each different?

Those aren't the only two choices.  Many non-geeks understand
folders and can use serial terminals.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
