    Editorial 
    =========

    It's with a sad heart that I wish Steven Horn a great future as he
    plans on leaving Fidonet shortly...  Steven has always been there for
    us when we needed him - offering his opinion and support as we SysOps
    try to deal with various matters in our changing world of
    telecommunications and our BBS systems.  His wisdom and understanding
    has been GREATLY appreciated all these years (21!).  Steven will be
    terribly missed!!
    
    Steven has been an invaluable resource when I had various questions of
    a legal nature regarding a variety of topics regarding BBSing...  Thank
    you for all your help over the years!
    
    [Steven, if you ever decide you have the time or inclination to return
    or come back as a point, just let me or any one of your Canadian
    friends in FidoNet know :)]

    Dr. DeBug Answers Your Questions!
    =================================

	To ask a question, send an email to dr.debug @ filegate.net or send a
	netmail to 1:261/38.

    How can I copy multiple *.bad files to *.tic files under Linux?
    ==============================================================

	If you copy *.bad to *.tic the results will not be what you'd expect :)
    This script will rename all the *.bad files in a directory to *.tic.
    	
    =====BASH script mvbad2tick======
    #!/bin/sh
    #  First, find all instances of .bad files and put them into a list            
    # ls -l lists the short version of the file names (as opposed to
    #  filename with long descriptions)
    
    list="`ls -1 *.bad`"

    # Now, use a For loop to go through each instance in the list, one at time

    for file in $list
   
       do
         f=`basename $file .bad`.tic
    
         #set variable f equal to the first .bad file.  Basename prints the
         #filename with any leading directory components removed.
    
         # now you can move the first instance of .bad to .tic
	
	     mv $file $f    
    
       done
         # The Do..While structure will move through each entry in the
         # 'list' until 'done'.
         
    ===================

    After you save this file, make sure you make it executible with
    'chmod filename a+x'

    Want to contribute something here?  Send your submission to fidogazette
    'at' filegate.net or email janis at filegate.net, or janis kracht at
    1:261/38 (binkp: filegate.net) and it will get published here in the
    next issue :)
     
    These days, every product in the supermarket seems to be inundated with
    HFCS (high fructose corn syrup).  While some say it's just 'another
    sugar', there are plenty of reasons to avoid that junk.. namely the
    obesity in the United States amongst even our children.  Rather than
    have to scour the shelves for something approaching 'decent', why not
    try making your own rolls and buns.. it's really not hard :)

    Hot Dog or Hamburger Buns
    =========================
    12-16 rolls or buns

    Preheat Oven to 400F
             
     1 cup milk
     1/2 cup water
     1/4 cup butter, unsalted
     4 1/2 cups flour (unbleached, whole wheat, or a mix)
     1 packet yeast (about 1 1/2 -2 teaspoons)
     1 tablespoon honey
     1 1/2 teaspoons salt
     1 egg, room temperature

     If you are using all whole wheat flour, add 2 teaspoons or so of vital
     gluten (available in the bread flour aisle).
     
     Heat the milk, water, honey and butter until butter is melted. Check 
     temperature. Depending on the temperature, let cool to 120F. Carefully
     beat in egg.
        
     Mix 2 cups of the flour, yeast, and salt. Mix into the milk mixture.
     Stir in the rest of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Beat well after each
     addition.
     
     When the dough pulls together, (it will form a soft ball) turn it out
     onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. This should
     take about 5 minutes.
     
     Divide dough into 12 -16 equal pieces. This will depend on the size
     you want for the finished bun. Shape into smooth balls, flatten
     slightly, and place on a parchment paper, or silpat covered baking sheet.
     Some people like to use cornmeal instead of parchment paper.
     
     Let rise for 30 to 35 minutes. When buns have almost doubled bake at
     400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. 
    
     If you are making hot dog buns it may be easier to roll the dough out
     into a large rectangle and cut into smaller rectangles. Let rise with
     sides touching.
     
     For fancier rolls, brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with
     poppy seeds, sesame seeds, coarse sea salt, or whatever you like.

    INFO:
    Where to Send Your Articles

    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth when
    there is a sparcity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd MUCH rather
    you sent in material but I think until someone starts a
    discussion you feel like commenting about, you evil dullards
    (just kidding!!!) will no doubt complain about "no issues" (grin)
    So I will fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here :)
    Don't be offended.. write an article!

    If you WOULD like to submit an article and prove me wrong about
    the dullard aspect of you guys and gals (bg), feel free to drop
    your article off at:

    By email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net Fidonet attach: 
    Janis Kracht at 1:261/38 
    Modem: 607-655-5652 
    1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555
    via binkp or telnet mailer 
    (don't send articles as routed attaches, send them direct to filegate.net).
    Standard binkp port only supports BinkP (24554).

    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!

    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).


     To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to
     dr.debug @ filegate.net or post in the fidogazette echo! :)

     To send a listing to the fidogazette internet bbs list, send your
     bbs listing to bbslist @ filegate.net or post it in the fidogazette
     echo!  :)
