Puhleez! .. /dev/null the poverty reports. Tedious coming from one of Merica's 
wealthier counties.

D'you have the *slightest* idea what limited resources *most* folks here have to 
work with?  Think Eastern Europe. Asia. 66% tax rates in Canada or Danmark. 
Families to feed, and s**t day-jobs.

need to burn a CD in such a hurry.

mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /cdrom
