Newbies' Corner: Gathering System Information (Coleman, Chris) 200001

If you manage multiple BSD computers, you have noticed that one command line looks very much like any other command line. It is easy to get turned around and think you are working on one computer, when you are really working on another.

Newbies\' Corner: Living with Netscape (Lehey, Greg) 199912

HTML, Web browsers, and document-specified fonts come together to make web browsing a harrowing experience.

Newbies Corner (Coleman, Chris) 199911

I spent quite a bit of time oblivious to the various Z tools that were out there. It wasn't until a friend of mine pointed out how one of the Z tools could accomplish a task I was working on that I became aware of their presence and what they can do. Z tools are a collection of programs that start with 'z'. I don't know if anyone else calls them 'Z tools' but it seemed like the right thing to call them. They are all based around the program gzip. Gzip is a compression tool.

Newbie's Corner: Managing Permissions with umask and chmod (Coleman, Chris) 199809

Let's face it, security and privacy are big issues. Users of your system are going to want to know that their files are safe from prying eyes. They want to be protected automatically and comprehensively, with each new file protected as it is created. Incorrectly set permissions on a file may allow unwanted access, cause programs to function improperly, or deny access to legitimate users.
