Has anyone ever had a problem with CDE hanging when
logging on to AIX as root?. I'm hacking away at
.dtprofile to no avail.
The following is spam but I couldn't help myself...
Remember the young Irish player we all voted for in
the Juventus Newcomer Awards? Well, Des Cahill has the
following article in today's Evening Herald i.e
" I mentioned a few weeks ago how a lot of Irish
people got involved in a patriotic e-mail campaign to
vote for young Bray lad, Ronnie O'Brien, as the most
promising newcomer at Juventus. Ronnie, who was
released by Middlesboro last year, was getting
no votes on the Juventus web site, so thousands of
Irish people e-mailed each other urging them to click
onto the Italian club's web site and vote for him.
Within days Ronnie had become Juventus' most promising
The club got wise to it however, and stopped the
voting on the
english language version of their web page. But the
vote remained open on the
Italian web page and the Irish lads spotted it , so
the e-mails went
around the country again and the voting continued - in
Now Colm Cullen has e-mailed me with details of
the latest campaign. It's even more bizarre, but so
cheeky that I absolutely love it. Colm writes.....
'Due to the phenominal (sic) success to date of Irish
footballing legend, Ronnie O'Brien,
I'm sure you'll agree with me that he deserves a
mention in the chronicles of the late 20th century.
Such a forum exists:
Time magazine bring out an issue at the start of every
year with the person who is voted to have made the
greatest contribution to humanity the previous year.
As this year sees out both the century and the
millenium, they have a site for the person of the
century' For those of you who would like see Ronnie
O'Brien honoured, the site is..
Point to note . I've entered his name as Ronnie
O'Brien . So in order for Ronnie to earn this
accolade, use the same spelling.
Ronnie is up against stiff opposition as the current
top 20 is a Who's Who of sociological impact.
Current top 20:
1. Yitzhak Rabin
2. Elvis Presley
3. Billy Graham
4. Adolf Hitler
5. Albert Einstein
6. Pope JPII
7. Martin Luther King
9. Ronald Reagan
10. John Lennon
11. Henry Ford
12. Mother Teresa
13. winston churchill
15. Linus Torvalds
16. Bill Gates
17. Pope Paul vi
18. Nelson Mandella
19. princess Diana
20. Saddam Hussein
Right lads don't underestimate the power we have on
this list - lets do it for Ronnie again - pass the
email on to all and sundry.
I think the no 1 slot at the minute has 57000+ votes,
no bother to us to top this.
