Can I add: never, I mean never, try any system process like that if your data have not been backed up. I use the cloud (Dropbox), but there are lots of other ways. Another thought occurred to me concerning the 95GB of data that the OP lost in /home/bob. Snapshot is a very labor-intensive process, a...

So the correct second line in the configure should have been something like work_dir="/media/ba6b2578-7ce2-4a14-bdcb-f19a23ef2xx/home/snapshot/" ? Correctomundo. The OP's mistake was to assign work_dir to /home/bob instead of /home/work. The working directory is where all the stuff happen...

Chromebook is a perfect choice for technically challenged people, the should not be able to use anything than a browser, and even for that they should need a "internet driving license" in my opinion -- no forwarding of chain letters and such. :lol: Well said. I'd like to add people who st...

I did the check they asked me to do and I got the message that my IP address that I was using is not vulnerable to DNS Amplification attacks. After calling Charter they also did their test and said they showed no problem on my end and apologized. Yep, a phone call to tech support usually resolves t...

Could it be true or could it be fake? If true, do I follow their advice? If false, it sure got my attention and raised the pucker factor. :eek: I get some "notices" from my "ISP" (hackers) informing me of this or that problem with my network, and advising me to click on this or ...

I tried using a fan sensor a while ago (back in SM 8.0 IIRC) and I ended up removing it. Unfortunately the details of what I did escape me. However, the sensor was interacting with the fan speed controls, which would sometime cause the fans to spin up to ungodly speeds, sounding like a jet plane tak...

Question about OpenDNS: I set it up in my router, and it's working fine, but now I'm getting emails from them telling me I should add my network to get full functionality. Is this necessary? I'm not sure what they mean by "add your network to get full functionality." AFAIK, OpenDNS works ...

It used to be that iPods would only work with iTunes and Apple prevented iTunes from working with Linux by design, which is the main reason I eschewed i-devices in general. However, cracks have opened up in the garden wall lately and you can now choose among several Linux applications that can manag...
