    [ubuntu] Re: Horrible login hang-up

    Well, that's a wrap. Thanks for the advice Cogier, but I think this thing has hung up on me for the last time - it's ridiculous. I'm going Mint... 60 seconds for Gnome to start it absolutely,...

    Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    Dude, Heliode, this is some darn good advice! I love the break down of the command, demonstrating you not only know the command, but what it actually means. I also really appreciate the sense of...
