No good point. I like this clearing up of my
explanation because it points out the weaknesses in my
fledgling knowledge, it's half the reason why I
haven't pushed myself forward to do a talk or anything
yet as there are people that know far more about
everything I know.

I only got to grips with permissions recently and in
fact, only discovered the symlink permissions thing
last night, after my post, while trying to work out
why I couldn't play music CDs a normal user, I still
can't hear then, but at least my apps can access them
now :)

Thanks James.
