Look, if you can't even configure your mail reader properly, you should
not be writing software.  Really.

Read the fucking manual.

  $ clear; mplayer -vo fbdev fnord.avi

PS: I would have sent this email to Chris, but some utter moron
configure the mailing list software to set reply-to to the list, so all
the dumb private emails will end on the list.  I think this is about the
dumbest thing one can do with a mailing list, but who am I to argue with
the guy who did this...  I can see a LOT of avoidable email (especially
flame wars) wasting bandwidth now.  Really, who ever did this should
slap his hand against a brick wall and change it back.
