Letters to the Editor
Just a note about a type-o in your March 1995 Kernel Kornel. On page 52, column one, paragraph 4.
You use request_irq() instead of request_dma() and you wrote “IRQ channel” instead of “DMA channel”.
I don't think this caused any confusion because it is evident that you were talking about DMA.
Anyway, just thought I would bring this to your attention. Besides it gives me a chance to say keep up the good work.

Michael Responds: ACK! You are absolutely right. Mea culpa.
I've read the System Administration article (“How to log friends...”) in the March edition of Linux Journal and found it quite useful. But I think the following remark is useful, too: if the logging level is set to =something, i.e. =debug, then only messages with this level are logged.
By the way, the syslog configuration can be tested with “syslog_tst”, which I found in /usr/sbin on my Slackware 2.0.1-based system. I do not find a man page for it, and there is no mention of it in the syslog man page.

I am writing to inform you that my address has changed.
Basically, my house burnt down and I was forced to move. Fortunately all of my back issues of LJ were on loan to my scungy mates, who had not returned them for 3 months or so, and thus were not burnt.
