I don't use Unix often enough to remember all the little shortcuts and codes that proper geeks know. I don't speak the language well enough. So I can never remember what the deal is with file permissions. I can remember that chmod 777 means letting anyone do what they want with the file, and I can remember that the numbers mean owner, group, others, but beyond that I need to look stuff up. For some reason, I can never seem to find a simple translation of what each file permission means.
