    [SOLVED] Re: Adding PCI cards

    Hi there,

    The answer to your question depends on what the cards are, and what you do with them. In general though, adding more cards to your PCI bus at least has the potential to lower the...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Truecrypt.... how to remote mount volume? or send bash script remotely?

    WebDAV over SSL would be a better option, I'd say. Anything that didn't support the DAV extensions (eg a phone) would still have plain HTTP to fall back on.

    Hi there,

    Disk encryption is not intended to be used in this way. Software like Truecrypt is designed to prevent someone with physical access to your hard disk from reading your data. It offers no...

    [SOLVED] Re: null terminated URL

    Hi there,

    Null terminators are pretty commonplace, but software implementing a protocol that doesn't use them could, in theory, mishandle them. HTTP, for example, uses CRLF terminators.

  9. [SOLVED] Re: No anti-aliasing for apps under /opt directory

    Hi there,

    In general, applications in /opt are self-contained binary packages that aren't necessarily linked against the rest of your system. Consequently, they'll be pretty generic builds, and...

    That's simply not true. Linux files (whether system-related or not) can be stored on virtually any filesystem. Out of interest, what makes something a Linux filesystem?
