comment Corrupt external hard drive - Not being recognized
@blastawaythewall: How can you know that neither the drive nor the case is dead when you can't access the drive? Under normal circumstances, you can't break a drive to the point where it won't be recognized as a drive. At this point, I'd just return it.

comment Crontab not working in Ubuntu 10.04
@john p: Yes, and no. If you've editing the files in /etc/cron.whatever, then YES, you need a user name. If you're logged in as john, and editing your default crontab with crontab -e, then NO, you don't need a username.

comment Computer resets when put under load
@msw: Worse, I have cats. I actually bought a huge after-market heat sink for mine (because I hate the fan noise) so when the system fans kick in, I know that I need to clean the heat sink. You're right though: my first thought would be heat if I hadn't added any new hardware, but when it's other people, I generally assume that they have added hardware and don't think that it's "relevant" when they report their mysterious new problem.
