This is the "funny" section of the "link cannon". Some folks asked me to post this collection of links.
The collection began as my own, but it has since been greatly augmented by the efforts of the "regulars" in the Yahoo! chat room "Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris:1"
The collection originated from custom user commands created for the chat client curfloo The conversion script used then was http://edge-op.org/files/curf-cannon
The author of the zinc chat client provides two handy perl scripts for converting from curfloo commands format to zinc commands format, and back.
Zinc allows the creation of multiple custom commands files in ~/.zinc/cmd/ , which makes it easy to create multiple HTML files from them.
The script used to produce this page is zinc-linker. The zinc custom commands are in zinc-coms.tgz.
All software mentioned above is provided AS-IS, without warranty. Use at your own risk.
Broken links are a side-effect of a dynamic World Wide Web.

Esko Woutenberg's advice to Linux distributors. (paraphrased) Sell flaky distros, follow with a new version and claim "it is 20 times as reliable as the previous version". Sell a bare-bones distro, then sell productivity packs for $ 89. Sell authorized distributor memberships for $ 395 (most people don't know about the GPL). Sell connectivity packs (don't mention Linux has no license fees). ->

Esko Woutenberg, advice to Linux distributors, (paraphrased) Don't give away free desktop themes; sell them as plus packs. Sell membership to "the Linux developer network" for $ 1,495 per year, then forward "Kernel Traffic" to them every week. "Sell the 'super secret' list of the kernel maintainers' e-mail addresses." Don't tell them it's publicly available info. ->
