Spamming is a sin; it is selfishness and arrogance to the

HEY! One point we can agree on! Cool! Maybe you're not such a bad guy
READ the faq:
OMG, thank you! A useful, helpful pointer! THAT'S the kind of stuff I was
looking for in a reply! I was starting to think that your post had no
substance at all; that it was full of useless flames and nothing else.
Honestly, that document didn't exist when I was selling Pokemon cards
several years ago. (If it was, I wasn't aware of it, and nobody pointed it
out to me.) I will read that document, in it's entirety, and heed its
advice. Thank you again for at least that one piece of useful information.
Now that THAT'S settled, does anyone else have any other USEFUL information
Well, since you're not going to spam with it, http://cygwin.com/packages/
lists pine and tin. I haven't tried either of them myself but lots of people
swear by them so you might like to have a go.
