Yep, and even using old Windows NT you can hack the registry to have
resizable console boxes with a filename completion. So I used to walk
around with a little paper with the hack on it so I could change
things when I had to work on another machine. And then you get
permission problems sometimes. And sometimes you make a mistake and
everybody gets mad at you £:-(
Since those days and my linux days I have a new philosophy that keeps
me happy regarding this sort of thing: If something is not in the
'batteries included package' just do not use it.
Learning about people the hard way -- by being one.
