    Your keys are being typed it just doesn't show you any feedback. So just type your password in and hit return. You follow?

    Did you ever use sudo the first time, when you were new to unix, and wonder why the cursor was not advancing? Give 'em a break.

    Nah, me and richthomas instantly knew everything about *nix operating systems from the moment we sat down at the keyboard. What did you do? Learn through experimentation? hahaha
