    and we were testing out my friends firewall... abnd he told me to paste the port scan in the IRC window, and i told him there was no copy and paste in linux. then he told me there was...




    <b>LEFT CLICK AND HIGHLIGHT THE SELECTED TXT. THEN MIDDLE BUTTON CLICK WERE U WANT TO PASTE IT!</b>

    Thanks Linux Guru. This is a UNIX trick that has been inherited.

    Speaking of mouse buttons, do you have any idea how to emulate a mouse button with a keyboard-mouse click combination? I'm using an <A HREF="http://www.apple.com/mouse/">Apple Pro Mouse</A> (which is, btw, the best mouse ever made) but it only has one button (actually, it really has zero buttons). Needless to say the people who designed KDE and Gnome were utterly clueless about designing an interface that could support one mouse button. Very poor indeed.

    freshmeat.net
    www.penguincomputing.com
    and there are much much more... hm, i might wanna checkk out that mouse, i ahte using my mous, it takes too long to reach all the way over and touch it.....

    i am gonna try and create a linux touch screen/keyboard that is the basic concept of a palm, but with a 10 inch flatscreeen monitor, and can hold a real distro of linux, like a full on distro.
    it would be the ideal thinggy for business and fun.
