    It's in naut isn't it? I know it's a thunar feature, I figure naut has far more going on, so maybe it's just a plugin.

    I have that in Nautilus, but I think I got it in a separate package. If so, it's in the repos.

    Thanks, the package is "nautilus-open-terminal" to anyone who's interested. This one's definitely making it into DOS...

    Probably because the normal windows user doesn't have the brain power to wrap their heads around having multiple desktops at once.

    YKYAGW you have had about 4 hours sleep in the past two days and you are spending the early hours of the morning writing version two of a script instead of catching up on your Zs

    Guilty BTW.

    Install as many operating systems as you can just to see how many your laptop can handle...

    YKYAGW you decide to take a day off to organize your media collection, following a rigid naming and archiving scheme, and have such a great time doing it that you forget to have lunch.

    Otis greets you. *WHACK!* Just one though. The other YKYAGW's you posted make up for it.

    *raises hand* Guilty. I do that about once a month, because I collect music quickly and it gets a bit disorganized. If I don't have tags, album art, lyrics, and proper naming convention, the universe is somehow... wrong.

    I'm gonna have a helluva time next week - an unorganized friend is giving me ~120GB of music. I'm determined to organize it if it KILLS me. And it probably will, since I will forget to eat all weekend.
    Why are uploads slower than downloads? That's easy. When you upload, the computer has to push the bits upward. When you download, the bits just fall by gravity, so it's much faster.

    ~/ ~/ on the range...
