"About me"?

Postby Nickpick » Sun Jul 06, 2008 1:18 pm

Two quick questions:

- What is the point of the "About me" application?
- Who can access the data entered there?

Thanks in advance,

~ Nick

You can look up other people's information with the finger command:

Code: Select all

# finger <username>

This is of course only useful when you have more than one user on your computer.
If Windows is the answer, you don't understand the question!

So it's still somewhat in development, eh. Thanks!
