"rm -fr /opt/local/", and you know what ? It felt good !!
"fink configure"and be sure to tell it to use binary packages if available, and to activate the unstable branch as well.
"fink selfupdate"to get the latest point release. That will also let you use the rsync updating method afterwards.
"fink selfupdate-rsync"to get bleeding edge stuff. This will also let you switch to the rsync upgrading method by default.
/sw/directory... If you have Apple's X11 installed, Fink even provides
system-xfree86packages automatically. These are virtual packages for satisfying applications that depend on X11. You don't have anything to do; you can go
"fink install gimp"right away.

From: Reviewers Conference <email@example.com>
Subject: Thank you for your commitment to support us as a WMSCI 2007's
Date: 16 Aug 2007 15:09:36 -0400
Dear Didier Verna:
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of The 11th World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (WMSCI 2007), I would like to thank you very much for your commitment to support us as a WMSCI 2007's reviewer.
You are one of our few cases who did not receive from us a notice for their possible support in the conference reviewing process. The causes were the lack of submissions in your area and/or a bug we found in the program by means of which a random selection of the reviewers were made in the last conference. We are fixing this bug so it will not happen again in the future.
We would like to inform you that we maintained your name among the reviewers of the WMSCI 2008 conference. If for any reason you will not be able to support us, as a reviewer of the next conference, we will highly appreciate your information about it by means of a reply to this email.
We really appreciate your co-operation, and we hope we will have your support again for WMSCI 2008.
Prof. Nagib Callaos
WMSCI 2007 General Chair
