I finally got around to installing wmvolman.  I like it, it works really well.  My compliments to the developer!  :)

I enjoyed reading the article.  There's something to be said about losing control due to "user friendliness".  Sort of similar to losing our freedom for the sake of security.  Not particularly a good thing.

Side note:  That Yandex translate interface is fantastic!  It works really well with the ALT Linux Wiki.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
