Fun time!

English Typing Lesson:

Take this example sentence:

Dick and Jane went to the park.
    ^ This character is a space. We use the space as the separator between
words.  You enter a space by using the SPACEBAR, the long plastic key near
the bottom of your keyboard.  It is not necessary to hold the SHIFT key
after pressing the SPACEBAR, as the space will tell the reader that one
word has ended and another has begun.

And let me tell you, it's a heck of alot easier to read without all those
capital letters clogging things up.

Oh, and by the way, if you don't tell me how this relates to FreeBSD I'm
going to ignore it.

You didn't mention how the file is zipped.  Is it packed using .tar.gz,
.tgz, .zip, or what?  I'm not psychic, you know.

And this had nothing to do with FreeBSD so I'm going to ignore it.

Hope I've helped you in some way, Mr. Knight .. have a nice day!
