Re: tlug: Apache permission weird.

    Oh it mustof been shocking when you found someone
using your workstation for a private proxy. I have to check
httpd configuration again. Well as far as Turbolinux is

   Anyway, you've given me alot to wake me up to know
the hard reality. Thanks, I keep an eye on httpd logs more
