    I *have* apologised for digressing in response to gore's comment of "The only time addiction is a problem is when it's outlawed. Think for example, of the alcoholics during prohibition. They had no...

    Apologies, I digressed when gore made his astoundingly ignorant remark that all addiction is harmless. The fact that he cited alcoholism as his example made me think that he wanted to expand this...

    Oh dear me gore, you really have lost your grip on reality now.

    But the weird thing is they took on IBM. I mean, they'd have to be pretty sure of themselves to go for a company that large who's almost certainly not to roll over and play dead. A very curious...

    Fair enough about video editing, I just assumed from earlier posts that it was a problem. Mea culpa.

    Ho ho, I know DVDs are supported by SuSE, that's pretty obvious. Of course I'm talking about...

    Just a few thoughts:
    * Writing to an NTFS volume isn't bug free. I'll mount an NTFS fs read only, but that's it!
    * Watching DVDs. I don't have a TV, and as we all know SuSE (et al) won't play DVDs...

    Ah yes.... but be careful editing things like resolv.conf in SuSE. Running SuSEconfig (which Yast will do from time to time) will possibly write over those changes.
