flush, like in "down the toilet", like "gone", "history", "fin".
like - now i'm free and clear to restart it! :)

-i- don't see a PID for PPP when started as a daemon (-auto)
are you sure ?  actually, httpd doesn't show either.  i don't 
believe daemons have PIDs ...

i'd like to know why daemons are special, ie, why can't they
be binaries that can be started & stopped like any other process?

please forgive me if i'm being ignorant!
