    Hi All,

    Recently, I've written a manual on how to install Snort (v. 2.3.0)
    using the Basic Analysis and Security Engine (BASE) and MySQL on top
    of Apache server. The manual takes Fedora Core 3 as an example for the
    hosting system.

    If interested, get a copy from

    any comments are appreciated as I might expand that manual for
    different platforms.

    PAST, n.
    That part of Eternity with some small fraction of
    which we have a slight and regrettable
    acquaintance. A moving line called the Present
    parts it from an imaginary period known as the
    Future. These two grand divisions of Eternity, of
    which the one is continually effacing the other,
    are entirely unlike. The one is dark with sorrow
    and disappointment, the other bright with
    prosperity and joy. The Past is the region of
    sobs, the Future is the realm of song. In the one
    crouches Memory, clad in sackcloth and ashes,
    mumbling penitential prayer; in the sunshine of
    the other Hope flies with a free wing, beckoning
    to temples of success and bowers of ease. Yet the
    Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the
    Past of to-morrow. They are one -- the knowledge
    and the dream. (The Devil's Dictionary)
