Re: [opensuse] How to partitioning in unallocated disk space
Lew Wolfgang said the following on 12/05/2011 02:20 PM:

But some decades ago the US adopted "International" signage in which
an arrow pointed opposite the direction of traffic with a circle and
a line through the arrow.

And what colour was the circle and line? RED.
The colour red on a European road sign signals negative
information such as a warning or prohibition.

Diamond signs indicate priority.
Red triangles are warnings.
Red circles are restrictions.
Blue circles are requirements.
Squares and rectangles give guidance.

For example the sign which show two arrows pointing in opposite
directions. If one of these arrows is red, it means the traffic
travelling in that direction must yield to traffic travelling in the
other direction.

A sign may show a bicycle. The red circle and bar - negative - means
"no bicycles". The Blue circle - positive - means "this is a bicycle
path". One says "don't" the other says "do".

In many ways this is like *NIX. A few basic principles applied over and
over.

He caught every other fish.
