    Hi, thanks for elaborating on that!



    Hehe, well I'd say you shouldn't be ashamed of a healthy dose of pragmatism. Luckily, there's usually also a >90% chance that one of your neighbours has a...

    [all variants] Re: Suggest a 1 TB Hard disk

    I read that a lot of Mac-users were annoyed with the "Smartware" software cd-image on this drive. Do you see any issues with this on Linux?

    Ok, I'll share one too: k9copy.

    [ubuntu] Re: File Recovery or am I Toast?

    I'm suggesting to use dd to create a byte-for-byte image of your disk. After doing that, you still need to use other recovery tools on the backup image. It's your data, so do realise the choices are...
