mc can handle them fine. Just sayin'. And I'm sure a script could've been written using 'find' or similar.

At the tech school I went to, my class was the first one to have Linux at all. (This was in 2000.) Rather than, say, buying a set of textbooks, the two instructors wrote them, and it was miserable. I mean, it was pretty good considering neither of them really knew Linux, but still. Another guy in my class and I were the only two who had any experience with Linux at all, and we did almost as much teaching as the instructors did.

Usually most people I've talked with pronounce it "etsy", like the website. I think (hope??) most of us know it's an abbreviation for "et cetera" (Latin for "and other things").
