  "I love Linux. I use it on my servers, I use it on my desktops, and I use
  it on my entertainment center, where it powers my HDTV TiVo and my D-Link
  DSM-320 media player, which turns my network into a media library with
  terabytes of storage. Heck, I even run Linux on my Linksys WRT54G Wi-Fi 
  access points, which hook the whole shebang together."

Sorry to infiltrate this thread, but you inspired me to try something new. I
have just (5 minutes ago!) finished writing and testing another little
script that displays kpager on-line and refreshes it every 10 minutes.

I dare Windows user to try and achieve the same thing with just a few lines
of code. ImageMagick does almost the entire thing and cron jobs take care of
the rest. It's a nice useful toy for remote monitoring. 'top' is included
and is public. *smile*
