@gomerx I haven't heard of FVWM (WM=Window Manager?). Use Debian/Xfce on my netbook (still from microSD), also tested & liked Crunchbang—@marjoleink
@marjoleink @gomerx FVWM was my window mgr of choice for years. Will probably go back to it.—@ndw

Hey, thanks for passing that on, airlines. RT @SkySteward Airlines raise fares to offset expired taxes #travel #flights http://dld.bz/ahNPb—@bsletten
@bsletten Brazen, ain’t they? Want to bet the prices go up again when the taxes return, and they *blame the taxes*. It’s just disgusting.—@ndw
@ndw Like politicians, I think they think we aren't going to notice. The trick is to motivate people care more than bitching on Twitter.—@bsletten

Ok, I'll bite. Why does Adobe Digital Editions render <sup>1</sup> as if I had written <sup>?1</sup> ?—@ndw
