  1. Poll: Re: If you have, why have you stopped helping in the support forums?

    This is part of the reason why I've left. What you can't have a discussion about this here? You want to move it to another forum that no one ever reads, so no one sees criticism.

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Virttualization with KVM on Ubuntu Server 9.04

    What version of Windows Server. 2008R2 is a disk hog and needs quite a bit of memory as well.

    I really like KVM, but I...
  3. [all variants] Re: Considering a Home Server, looking for advice

    Any of the "power-saving" drives will do this, but the WDs are very bad.

    The thing is that the drives don't actually fail. The RAID hardware/software thinks they do and marks them failed. You can...
  4. [all variants] Re: Considering a Home Server, looking for advice

    You'll probably want to run some sort of DLNA (UPnP) media server. I use Mediatomb (packages available) with great success. Some people also like PS3MediaServer (works with way more than the PS3) if...

    [ubuntu] Re: Disk Defragmentation

    I'm not even sure what you are trying to say here. It's a tautology to say that of all the files on your system "most files are accessible in an average amount of time." If you take all of something...

    [ubuntu] Re: Disk Defragmentation

    While Linux file systems historically tended to fragment less than the Windows equivalent, both are pretty good. NTFS is really a very good file system, although it's much maligned by some people...

    [ubuntu] Re: Disk Defragmentation

    Not true. Fragmentation is a concern with any rotating media. While file systems can mitigate this problem to an extent, fragmentation will degrade performance. There hasn't been good defragmentation...
  13. Re: what is the best LCD size and resolution for a software developer?

    At work, I have 2x 19" 4:3 and 2x 24" 19:16. I really like having the 24" monitors rotated to portrait mode. Monitors that are as tall as possible are the best for development. Widescreen monitors...

    [ubuntu] Re: Server as a router?

    Setup your hardware like sj1410 says. You can set this up in iptables with four commands, and you're done with the firewall.

    There's no difference between the two when they are created. Hashes and keys are both outputs of a hashing function which accepts arbitrary data and performs a (ideally) one way function that creates...

    No this is poor programming on the part of Mozilla or Adobe. I'll break down this error message because I think that it will help people understand Apparmor.

  18. Re: Server slows down while moving between partitions

    It's because your disk is completely saturated. It's thrashing between reading and writing. Separate partitions doesn't matter because it's one hard drive.

  23. [ubuntu] Re: Replace a Windows Domain with Ubuntu Server(s)

    There isn't anything competitive with AD on Linux. Samba4 is nowhere near ready for production use, and still wouldn't support nearly as much as AD does. Plus there's no decent user interface.
