This is the first time that I saw the "entire" letter that Nina wrote,
the letter I received from her lacked her aliases file...
(i now believe that it was because of a mistake i made the other day by
inserting /dev/null in my /etc/shells file)
yes, you can flame me for that, i acted on the advice of someone who now
appears not very knowledgeable :)
have a good day!
