It would also be nice if we could get the folks running NetBSD to get
into the WebRing.  I've been on a ring for over a year and Unix Review/Info
Week/one of those (???) just had a really interesting article about
WebRing.  If we could get the Ring thing going (and get some prominence
on our Web Pages) it would be a Good Thing (tm).

Have you every actually been around a penguin?  I wasn't able to discern
any appreciable difference (except for the pitchfork, which the penguin
doesn't need :-)

BTW:  I thought the Jargon File claimed the preferred pronunciation for
'daemon' was 'dA - mun', not 'dE - mun'.  That is usually enough to get
the (all but the most ecclesiastical) confused enough to quiet them
