I vaguely remembered Bill Gates saying that 640K ought to  be enough for anybody but I thought he was talking about money.
My wife's machine could use a WinPatrol license if she wins while I keep doing my own Linux patrolling.

What Linux command displays the last part or end of a file without actually editing it?
I wasn't sure if the answer was nail or toe but since neither one was offer I would guess it is D. tail.

BTW: There is one question that is tricky! It's not the answer you think!

Certainly not the answer I thought it was!


And don't forget I can't say whether you win or not until two people answer correctly for a given question!

Sorry, you make the third or maybe the forth to answer the trick question with that incorrect answer.


That's why it is a trick question. ;)
