And btw that code for flocking will not give you the protection you want, open it "+<$user_name" or else it gets wiped out before you try to lock it.
I'm confused here. Everyone else has been saying "+>$user_name" which makes sense to me. Is your suggestion a typo, or am I missing something fundamental here?
