I definitely will. I will just wait till I have some more to add than just

I am thinking maybe the simplest way since this is just a test is to tar the
entire host up and install it into a vserver then make proper config/init
mods by overlaying a new baselayout and lots of editing. there is so much to
compile and configure otherwise.. a fresh install would be different but I
don;'t want to take 3 or 4 days of compiling and instlaling to see if it even
works.. if it does, then I can uninstall from the host and the next
incarnation of this machine will be fresh proper installs.

ok. i have an irc plugin in kopete, just never tried it out.

no problem at all. this is one incredible package that deserves all the praise
it can get. (still trying to get my brain around most of the concepts
however.. once i do that im sure i can create better more efficient servers)
