'as the "fortune" program says, "The best book on programming for the layman is Alice in Wonderland; but that's because it's the best book on anything for the layman."'
I think I laughed harder than I usually would have at this, because I'd recently read a linguistics paper (http://www.kwartjez.amu.edu.pl/Krazynska,%20Sloboda.pdf) whose 'Further Reading' section contained, sandwiched between various works about proto-Indo-European, a pointer to a translation of this very book. It also happens that when asked by a friend if it were possible to get old books in Polish and English text, and English audio, to be the only book I could find legally in all three forms.
Curiouser and curiouser.

This tutorial is great, and so is sniffex.c. EXCEPT, it doesn't print the payloads of packets when using UDP. Why ever not? It'll print out packet number, source/destination, protocol, but never the hex/ascii payload and header of the packet itself. Help!
Thanks Aisha S. Azim

Just happened to run across the question in Linux Gazette Mar issue about idesk. Just so happens I finally got idesk up a couple hrs ago using your info at http://linuxgazette.net/160/okopnik.html then downloaded your idesk icon configurator. Small problem at this end.
Instead of showing icons, I get a series of 'Submit Query' in my browser. If I configure a link by clicking on one of the 'Submit Query's it makes my link just fine, even giving me the complete path to the .png file & the .png on the desktop link, even though the icon itself is no shown in browser.
This is a sample of the source code showing icon names;
<h3 style="background-color: blue; color: white; text-align: center">Click on an icon to create the IDesk link file</h3> <input type="image" name="24x24/places/network-server.png" src="24x24/places/network-server.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" /> <input type="image" name="24x24/places/folder-saved-search.png" src="24x24/places/folder-saved-search.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" /> <input type="image" name="24x24/places/user-home.png" src="24x24/places/user-home.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" /> <input type="image" name="24x24/places/gnome-fs-trash-empty.png" src="24x24/places/gnome-fs-trash-empty.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" />I'm running icewm on unbuntu 9.04. Browser is firefox 3.08. Also Opera, but Opera shows a rectangle with 'image' in it. If I copy the source and insert /home/xxxxxxx/.idesktop/builder/ into
<input type="image" name="24x24/places/user-home.png" src="24x24/places/user-home.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" />
so it looks like this:
<input type="image" name="24x24/places/user-home.png" src="/home/xxxxxxx/.idesktop/builder/24x24/places/user-home.png" vspace="2" hspace="3" />the icon shows o.k. I don't know cgi, but I played around with idesk.cgi but can't figure out how to get the full path to the .png files to show in the html.
Any ideas how I can get the full path to show in the html?
