Sounds good to me. I know that I really could of used some of these "Getting Stuck" tips in the last couple of months. I am also sure that I will run into some in the near future.

I decided to post this separately rather than as an edit because I'm hoping to appeal to admins in an indirect way but by example. It is a given that some filtering is essential on any forum that wishes to have wide appeal. I accept that even though I don't particularly like it. Maybe freedom of speech is questionable in the classic example of a crowded theatre but excepting personal attacks threatening violence (as remote as that might be to actually carry out) but surely as long as it can't lead to flame wars why are certain words banned? Today I am specifically referring once again to the "itch" that follows "a-itch"... a word that means "female dog".

In this specific case I was in my previous post pointing out an important tool useful to people stuck and in trouble. It fairly often happens, and especially apparently and lately with some ATi and Intel video chips that one gets bumped out of X and, if lucky, to a command prompt. In that situation the Internet is not only helpful but essential.

Not that many people new to Linux know how to use Lynx and in my experience it takes some time to get used to it. The other program to which I tried to refer is an IRC client which is basically as easy to use as an IM client but whose official name I apparently cannot write here except by a roundabout way. The name begins with "B" and is followed by "itchX". I have to ask how is this better? Who does this serve? This word is used on primetime TV, as are some other words filtered here. What standards are being used?

In any case I recommend people new to Linux learn the basic uses of IRC clients because there is immediate real-time help available for Linux especially on the freenode server. Knowing how to get help can save your a$$ or at least your PC.
