I don't know about virus killing in Linux, but I could sure use a faster /dev/null device... Wink

Q: Where does data written to /dev/null go?

A: It goes into a special data sink in the CPU where it is converted to heat which is vented through the heatsink / fan assembly. This is why CPU cooling is increasingly important; as people get used to faster processors, they become careless with their data and more and more of it ends up in /dev/null, overheating their CPUs. If you delete /dev/null (which effectively disables the CPU data sink) your CPU may run cooler but your system will quickly become constipated with all that excess data and start to behave erratically. If you have a fast network connection you can cool down your CPU by reading data out of /dev/random and sending it off somewhere; however you run the risk of overheating your network connection and / or angering your ISP, as most of the data will end up getting converted to heat by their equipment, but they generally have good cooling, so if you do not overdo it you should be OK.

enjoy

Hi Aitch, now I know why my MS windows machines
were causing me so much trouble, and I was in need of an upgrade
engine (cpu box), mem, cpu and graphics.

There must be a lot of brain washing going on.

Since I found PUPPY I can have all that engine power
with my existing keyboard and cpu engine.

It's good to get those old cpus' that are heading for the skip
just because they won't run MS Vista and MS Windows7 !

Just my 10cents worth (we dont' have 2 cents any more)

Cheers Tui
