  1. [ubuntu] Re: USB Bluetooth adapter that works out of the box

    I've bought a few BT adapters on ebay (for about 3 delivered!), and they just worked. I've never actually tried one that didn't - come to think of it!
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Suddenly, I Lost half of my hard disk partitons

    Probably not, now that you've gone and installed an entire OS on the drive.

    You could try data recovery tools, but it's going to be pot luck. It's probably an idea to health-check your hard...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is mounting a disk twice cause issues?

    While I personally wouldn't want to mount the same filesystem twice (I can't think of a single good reason to do so), it should be ok. I suppose that any software that might be indexing stores could...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: how do I know which version of Linux is installed on computer?

    Agreed, but for the true newcomer, the previous command is a lot friendlier with the output (A nice full name, no verbosity). I'll also throw in another option:


    cat /proc/version

    Well at least you can easily throw in lots of extra drives, be they in bays or cable-tied to random sections. Can't do that with an all-in-one tiny PC. ;)
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Something weird with open router ports and Apache 2

    Upnp ;)

    Also, if the router is forwarding port 80, but nothing is listening on the PC (no Apache), then it's not really open.

    [ubuntu] Re: Help buying a server

    Screw compact PC cases, stick to monsters! You can always stick them in a cupboard somewhere, and run a dinky front end by the TV; or HDMI/IR over cat6, that's even more practical and minimalist.

    [SOLVED] Re: NTFS lost

    If you can afford to spend a little, then 'get data back for NTFS' is a good program for recovering data (from NTFS systems); I'd probably say that it's the best.

    Either way, stop booting from or...

    Re: Girl Troubles IRL... -.-

    If you live in fear of rejection or failure, you'll never get anywhere.

    You're obviously very young; just think about things this way, 'what's the worst that can happen'. ;)

    Ultimately yes, of course it is; how cruel is another matter. Cruel is probably the wrong word to use, and I'd opt for selfish
