I can't remember if significant, but we have a TAB delimeter
after the "Alias" keyword and no spaces between the "="
I.e. something like the following SHOULD work:
prep ALL=ADDUSER (to be able to run on ALL machines)
prep abc=ADDUSER (can only run on machine abc)
P.S. For those interested in a little Halloween Levity,
I've setup the webcam/webcontrol again as I did last xmas.
"only" ~4,000 lights (instead of 22,000 for xmas/2002),
but I got the Hulk spotlighted - check it out at:
