Generic sysadmin. Hack coder. Jack of all trades, master of some.


Please Note:

I expect you to read any reference material I link to in my answers. If the answer to your question is contained in said reference material and the reference source is not likely to disappear I will probably not cut and paste it onto SF unless it's really cool/interesting/obscure.
In return I promise not to link anyone to goatse or tubgirl

I expect you to think for yourself and do a little thinking (and mayhaps even some work) to solve your problems. If you aren't capable of this, please exit the profession via the door on your left.
In return I promise to do my best to aim you in the right direction, and to clarify any points you have trouble with

checkout is not a unix concept - consult the documentation for your application (and acquire a thorough understanding of what the permission bits do) to determine what permissions are required for the action you want to take.
