I have to say I am about as pro-*BSD as they come, but if Linux is what
it will take to make things better, I am ready to try it.  If it takes
SCO Unixware, I am ready to try it.  However, I think Marc has pointed
out some less drastic changes that will fix the fsck problem.  My point
is that the fsck problem has gone on too long and it is time to address
it head-on.  Let's take the approach with the best possibility of
success and implement it.

Yes, and its animated too.  Everyone knows animation on a web site
spices it up, as does blinking text and text that changes color.  :-)

Yes, but how far is it from the image I saw to the completed site?  I
have no idea, and why has there been so little progress in the past few
years?

Yes, except Google has decided to stop archiving our groups since
September 16.  We reported this on the www list, I think.  I think they
had the best archive interface, and now it is gone.  Take a look:
