    [ubuntu] Re: Help with triple booting?

    My opinions on the matter:

    1. You do not need to partition things yourself, but the second drive needs to have windows space and linux space. Linux can see windows formatting but not vice versa...
  2. Re: Fresh 12.04 install on new computer - lots of crashes - bad processor?

  7. [ubuntu] Re: How do I make it so others can remotely log into my computer?

    If command line is adequate, then SSH is the way to go. The -X as stated above is great, but if you're logging in from outside the network (i.e. into a server, then ssh from that server to the...

    I have been using IP tables to block particular IP addresses, so I thought. Then I looked at what the rules are, and it's only saving my last entry (I think). I have been using this to block:
