If you thought that the post below was caused by my taking some sort of abherration, you'd be partly right, but since it's probably in the top 5 of most-commented-upon posts, it would seem churlish to delete it now.
Needless to say, some inopportune accidental enter-hitting right before a lecture caused it. And I still haven't worked out what I was going to say.
However, do stay tuned for a continuation of my PuTTY tutorials - CVS over PuTTY/SSH. Baited breath, fellows.
