    Also you might want to read the notes for the RC of LMDE respin better. It strongly suggests that the snapshot rolling is implemented out of the box.

    How Bash Shell interprets a command ??
    bash looks through
    1. Redirection
    2. Aliases
    3. Expansion
    4. Shell Function
    5. Shell Builtin
    6. Hash table
    7. PATH variable
    to run a command.

    ex: bash has a builtin named time, but you might also have a binary /usr/bin/time. assuming you do not have any function or alias named time, the bash builtin will be run if you do ‘ time some_process ‘ in a terminal. if you want to use /usr/bin/time, you must fully declare the path.

    I’d been meaning to post for the past week but I didn’t have enough online time to do it. 🙁

    I tried listening to the ‘Cast on my new phone (Samsung Restore on Virgin Mobile) since I now have a decent web browser and free data but the stupid Opera Mini 6 doesn’t know how to open mp3 files and the browser doesn’t do Flash. Hopefully early next month I’ll get a microSD card and get Bolt on the phone. I know the Bolt browser does Flash.

    I definitely want to check out Z shell. Can someone post a link to the show notes? I don’t see it above and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to dig up the URI from the show too easily. Thankee!
