<Dazed_75> Mir now has DPMS power management support

<Dazed_75> http://xmodulo.com/2013/06/how-to-tail-multiple-files-at-once-in-linux.html
<Dazed_75>     NOTE: The install worked but I cannot get the command to work (LT) as described.  However it did work when I surrounded each file name or ping command (with its argument) in single quotes.  Once it also gave an error message relating to mailcheck when I used sudo and an explanation how to avoid that problem following which it worked.  Still, it seemed too useful for a few users to not mention the tool.

<Dazed_75> http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/190911/ PCLinuxOS Magazine - Windows Migration Issue
<Dazed_75>     NOTE: Very interesting stuff here.  While focused somewhat on PCLinuxOS, it covers a wide variety of Desktops, customizations, and strategies.  On page 110 is the best argument I have ever seen against the *buntu way of having no password for root and using sudo whenever elevated privileges are required.
