    [ubuntu] Re: HOWTO Use Ubuntu As A Mac OS X Time Capsule

    the solution is simple. /dev/sdb1 needs to be mounted at boot. You can add a permanent mount point by creating a folder somewhere (/mnt/ or /media/ are good choices, ex; /mnt/data) and then add...

    I am running ESXi and have about a half dozen guests on it. If I want to enable a service, say SSH...
  5. Re: how to combine multiple CSVs into one xls workbook as separate tabs command line

    you are probably right about needing to make a VBA macro at some point. But as for right now, it gets the job done and it automates a process that used to take a technician a couple hours to do...
  6. Re: how to combine multiple CSVs into one xls workbook as separate tabs command line

    YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!! I had to dig a bit to find a Win32 build of Gnumeric but I found one and I'm happy to report that now with the help of one .bat file, 5 .sh scripts, a couple Linux binaries on...
  7. Re: how to combine multiple CSVs into one xls workbook as separate tabs command line

    thanks. unfortunately for me, this is on cygwin. I'm a Mac/Linux guy but my new position requires me to use Microsoft. I think I already made some of my coworkers paranoid when I told them that I...
  8. how to combine multiple CSVs into one xls workbook as separate tabs command line

    I figure I'll ask the question here, even though it's probably better suited for a site like superuser or VMUG.

    Specifically here is what I'm doing. I administer a few thousand virtual machines...

    [ubuntu] connected to VPN server... now what?

    I may be way off base here, maybe I am not understanding what the point of a VPN is. It was my understanding that connecting to your VPN will give you a secure way to expose ALL of your network to a...

    [all variants] Re: Effective RAM size not recognized

    I know that you said your computer supports up to 8GB of RAM, but are you absolutely sure about that? I am on an IBM Thinkpad T60 right now which has 4GB of RAM installed in it. It has an i915...

    No, once again you are missing the point, and bordering on trolling. Unity is fine if you like it. I personally don't, and I don't care for Shell either. I would probably find them tolerable if...

    Re: why so much schism?

    I agree, KDE is a prime example of what I'm talking about. There aren't 15 different versions of KDE, there are effectively 2. There is Trinity, which I already addressed and is for the most part...

    I've been around for just as long, and we clearly have differing view points. However, there is no reason why our different preferences are necessarily incompatible with one another. I don't view...
