    I've found that using xkill makes the GUI become very unstable and usually results in resorting to <Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> anyway. Is it just me or does anyone else have this problem?

    On a side note, this is one of the greatest tut's I've come across here at AO....well done!

    Thanks a bunch for the kind words k1ll. Using xkill is just like any way of forcebly killing a process. It CAN lead to unstability if misused.

    being this type of thread was already pulled up il speak my idea. instead of making a new post being it isnt THAT important

    how hard would it be to add an option to the sites code that would give you a message when the post is hella old.
    you go to click post and you either get a window that says
    "this post is "so many days weeks months years"old, please make sure your content is worth while."

    i dunno. could be a keep in mind task for the moderators further down the road
    work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger
