    Re: Weak passwords survey

    The problem is, every authentication system can be beaten by sufficiently organised efforts. The key is to decide the security:convenience ratio for each object you're trying to protect. I'm wary of...

    [lubuntu] Re: Dropbox file manager extension for Lubuntu

    Yeah. It seems that only 'nautilus-dropbox-extension' has this, and I guess those on other desktops are left high and dry. Perhaps the dropbox CLI can do this, but it won't be as convenenient as...

  9. [lubuntu] Re: Message during startup: /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not available or ready yet

    Err... of course it is truthful.

    If this is the case then I wonder why the system tries to mount it before the crypt support becomes available, and why a spurious message about it is printed?...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: i changed a 100 mb partition (may have been made by windows) to swap space

    Hmm it seems you've created four primary partitions which means you cannot create any more partitions. That's how the MBR partition format works. People who need more than four partitions normally...

    Never heard of Windows using a dedicated boot partition at least on legacy BIOS systems. I've no experience with UEFI systems. Now you've learnt never to delete/reassign partitions without knowing...
