Is that all?  How about my machine?  I have all of xorg on it, and even room for
you to make your own archive, if you have sharing problems (you really should
have taken care of those in kindergarten!).  If you want a user, send me a ssh
key.  Don't PASTE it, use attachments, because I hate the way my mailer (or
yours) will wrap those keys, making life difficult.  If you don't want the
username in the key, then tell me what to give you.  I'd even give a couple out.
 You folks have been very nice about helping me, it's little enough to give some

 I'm guessing we just need to
