If you want to educate many people in the use of root, call it what it is - an administrator.

is this the list of pages left to write ?


By anonymous writer at Thu, 2004/09/30 - 5:00am

The list above is of all of the sections. You can still win if you send in one of the topics already covered by other entries, but of course it would make more sense to do different ones :)
