You mean 664. :)

Also, in case Larry doesn't know, to add yourself to a particular group,
open the "/etc/group" file as root, look for the line beginning with
"dialout", and add your username to the end of the line.

The form is typically:


Good luck!

I got up and left after about 20 minutes.  It was pretty pathetic,
unfortunately.  The music... the interactions between the characters
(which can be a GREAT piece of humor to through in the middle of such
a mostly-serious series such as X-Files... but which is just tiresome
for a whole hour)... Yves...  ugh.

I hope the next episode is much better. :^/
