I'm pretty sure I spotted some "jail screws" in the men's room on the
2nd floor of the Killam Library at Dal. You know, round head but made
originally to be the way a round slot head screw looks after you've
mangled it trying to get it out. I guess the student hobby of
dismatling stalls and taking them away for further pranks isn't
supported at Dal. I don't think you can do those with a toothbrush
and a lighter.
ObLinux: I just discovered that you can't use an alias known to the
shell as an argument to find -exec. Even find -exec csh foo doesn't
seem to work (when foo is an alias known to the shell in which find
runs.) Somehow I expected find to execute arguments to exec in a
subshell where aliases would be recognized. Not that it's important.
Always something yet to learn.
