What Others Think

Hey fhh, I appreciate your zeal in posting lots of examples of Unix commands, but please don't post ones that have been posted before. If I hadn't seen your sample output for this one, I would have assumed you were a spam robot simply re-submitting valid commands in order to be able to post later without moderation.
