Re: [vox-tech] vim question



Hmm, I was just about to say... :-)

Yes the others will work, xhost tho, IMO is the fastest and requires the
least effort.  And I agree that xhost + is not a good way to go, in fact,
you may want to go a bit further and do an xhost +root@localhost

I forget if xhost assumes wildcards, but why take chances, if you're
explicit, then you lessen the risk.
