    [SOLVED] Re: Problem Using Uppercase Only Terminal

    I don't know the answer but you could edit your ~/.bash_profile from another terminal to include "stty -a" so you can see what is set, or directly set "stty iuclc" etc in the profile.

  3. Re: HOWTO: Install TWiki 4.0.4 on Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS

    I would recommend Foswiki - almost all the TWiki developers switched to Foswiki in 2008 and it is actively developed. It's easy to install on any supported Ubuntu version, just follow the guide at...

  5. Poll: Re: What's the point of locking off the archives "from public view"?

    I don't think that would be a good idea - if it's not visible to Google, it might as well not exist for most purposes. I think it's more useful to put a warning up front that the content is quite...
  6. Poll: Re: What's the point of locking off the archives "from public view"?

    Getting rid of the archives would be a really bad idea - like many others, sometimes an old HOWTO really helps a great deal. Google will not highlight old content so it will usually be found by...

    The offset is the same regardless of which hex editor you use, but ghex2 is a nice GUI based editor. You can see the offset (from start of file you are editing) at the bottom left of the disk. For...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cisco VPN crashes system

    You need to find out more about the crash - look at the error messages leading up to the time of the crash (make sure your PC clock is accurate) -

  10. Re: HowTo: Fix Corrupted Windows Registry from Ubuntu partition
