Hi Etienne --

Just a preliminary report on your applet. I downloaded it, & can report that
it compiles & appears to work on Linux for i86 processor. (Well, to be
precise, kernel 2.2.18 on dual PII 400Mhz with AfterStep 1.8.9.) I say
``appears" because I'm still fiddling with it in order to understand how
it works & how to write the configuration file.

I found what appears to be a minor bug, though. When I run ``aslpmon -h",
it returns (with other things):

Shouldn't that be YOUR name on the second line?
