  1. Just a quick note for everyone: USR is not actually "user" and does not contain users like the windows directory does. It stands for Universal System Resources, containing various stuff for all user programs, but the actual "user" directory is "home" for non-administrative users where as the root users or super-admins are located under "root".

  2. Hey, my friend. Thank you so much for so many acccurate informations and help you provide worldwide. Can i ask you a favor ? I actually HATE to be scared by the ultra-loud sound of a music intro when the speaking guy actually is whispering alike when talking… Could you go closer to the microphone or maybe lower the intro music level to get accordingly to the sound of your voice ?
    Thank you so much, and don't worry, this wasn't a critic.. but still… do it… "please" ..
