[PLUG] PLUG W follow-up

Thanks to Michael Lazin for his neat preso on interesting stuff to grep 
for in Apache access.logs.  :-)

Amul mentioned a sound problem with Hulu and MythTV and others.  While 
it does sound more like a pulse/mixer problem as Paul suggested, I offer 
the following solution that I found via Google a while ago to fix 
no-sound in Flash in Firefox:
	aptitude install libflashsupport

However, I am not finding that package in newer Ubuntu releases and it 
looks like it may have been Hardy/Flash9 only?  Not sure.  More details at:

We were also talking about LogWatch, but I got confused on the name. 
The package *I* was talking about is logcheck.  Here are some details 
from when I last rambled on about this:

As dinner we noted it would be pretty easy to add Michale L's grep 
patterns to logcheck.  That is true, but as I think more about it the 
results might be more noisy than generally intended for logcheck.  I'd 
need to experiment a bit.

Some ramblings on fcheck:, 
including a rather killer bug you might run into.

At dinner we were talking about command prompts.  Here is my big, messy 
love-it-or-hate-it prompt:
PS1='\n[\u@\h:T\l:L$SHLVL:C\!:J\j:\D{%Y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S_%Z}]\n$PWD\$ '

That's all I can remember, hope this is useful,
