That is an incomplete and inadequate answer - anyone can say "make
install reboot and call me in the morning". If you want to see what
good answers look like, visit perlmonks.org.

I never though this list was a technical support list, especially
since it is called "talk" and not "bsd-users" or "BSD-commando".
Besides, those lists exist elsewhere, and freebsd-isp is as
interesting as the Postfix-users list. I always thought this list
was for peripheral/cultural/commerce issues around *BSD, although
the occasional technical queries about specific issues were welcome.
