Re: [vox-tech] getting IP address in C

alright thanx, please don't start a big thread about it.

I will say this though:

Some of you guys are really uptite... you are all really smart and know a lot
about linux (among many other things).... It's a real shame that a small number
of you have the ego to go along with your vast database. Even you Peter have
said some things on the list that you could have very easily "gotten lucky" on.
Sometimes you just can't get the search string right......

Did you really have to waste everyone's time even more by sending a second group

Alright, time to fix the cup holder on my Slack machine.
