Make the share point a login item, and it'll be automatically "opened" (i.e. connected) every time you log on. Go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> select your account in the sidebar -> Login Items tab, then drag the mounted share point (you can get it from the Finder's computer view, available under its Go menu). (Historical note: the ...

Overview: Create a launchd agent (a bash script in this case) to mount us whatever shares we like every couple of minutes. It is not perfect but it works. This is for Samba shares, but you can modify it to do other types. Made with help from Dave Nicoll's about sharing windows/x iTunes libraries. I'm using my laptop's wireless card to determine if I am ...

With auto_fs, auto_master, etc, try having a read of Autofs: Automatically Mounting Network File Shares in Mac OS X (PDF). It's a little dated now (2009) but, using the examples in the doc, I got all my NFS & SMB shares organised and auto mounting easily.

There are a few options available for doing this. The main is virtualization – I find this to be the best solution in my test instances. Another (albeit more specific use product) would be steady state type of product. Check out Deep Freeze for a good example.

Yes it is possible. If you're booting from the USB, you don't want to repartition the whole thing, you just want to recreate the loopback casper-rw partition. I've just done it with a Karmic Koala USB stick from 2009. Current ones may work a bit differently (I've been on a bit of a holiday from Ubuntu the last year or so). Enable expert mode and remove ...

Of course, BACKUP, BACKUP and BACKUP first and foremost !!!! I installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx on a 16GB memory stick with no major issue. However, there is ONE thing that you need to be extremely careful about. At the very last window before confirming and going ahead, you need to click on the advanced button, to change the location of the master boot record ...

It is absolutely possible. The mechanism built into Ubuntu is available. Basically, use the usb-creator tool or LiveUSB Creator (available once you've booted the LiveCD) to create a LiveUSB system on the USB stick. Here's an install-it-from-Windows tutorial. There are lots of posts on the Ubuntu forums about persistence; you'll want to check there in ...

Apparently this is a known issue with Fedora 15. The bug report is available here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=706122 also here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F15_bugs#live-overlay Unfortunately, while there is a "work around" it seems that to fix the problem permanently you need to create your own "live CD" with the updated ...

The fulfilling solution Create a user for each screen session (Windows-window/PuTTY session) you intend to have open as a maximum. Connect to the server using each of the newly created users and run ...

Look into mosh which is designed to reconnect terminal sessions after transient network failures. There are a bunch of caveats with mosh (different security considerations, potential loss of scrollback), but it definitely solves the re-connect-after-disconnect much smoother than putty.

An old post I know, but just thought I'd mention the seconds between Keepalives setting on the Connection options tab - set this to a non-zero value to see if it helps - see http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/0.63/htmldoc/Chapter4.html#config-keepalive for more info.

sorry but did you mean the one browsers use to correct our typing? nor known to such sync service that browser provides then. but if it is file-based, some symbolic link and service like dropbox may help. #actually I use dropbox to synchronize my firefox profile across 3 computers.

If your BIOS supports disabling and enabling SATA and IDE ports, you don't have to worry about accidently overwriting your current MBR. Just disable them first.

For some reason VMware Fusion 5 (Even VMware Fusion 5 Professional) lacks a UI option to create Independent, Persistent VMDKs. But it can easily be done in the .vmx file using a text editor: First, shut down your virtual machine and quit VMware Fusion.
