I started learning web design to support my efforts as a singer/songwriter. I'm still doing that, but these days my actual job involves building intranet resources as well. My skillset is PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript (I'm a big fan of jQuery).

comment Open a directory in a Linux GUI file browser via the command line
Just to help search engine users: if you're using Ubuntu, this probably applies to you.

Great! This does the trick. (I got a bit of help from here, too: techonthenet.com/excel/formulas/vlookup.php)

comment Securely erasing all data from a hard drive
It says "DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect." Maybe the wording is just confusing: can I pick a single drive for it to erase? (I want to wipe an external drive, not trash my whole computer.)

comment Securely erasing all data from a hard drive
@brice - if there are people who are able and willing to reconstruct your hard drive after you've physically shredded it in order to get your info, then you shouldn't be asking questions like this on a public site, or going outside where the satellites can see you, either. But yes, by all means, soak the platter in acid, then shred it, then burn the shreds, then grind the ashes into powder, then sugar-coat the powder and feed it to insects.

comment Can I copy from vim to another window without +xterm-clipboard?
SSH is encrypted; wouldn't any clipboard contents transferred also be encrypted? If so, isn't it then just a question of whether I trust the machine on the other end?

comment How to paste from multiple clipboards vim without leaving insert mode?
This is great! Also, how did you format text to look like keyboard buttons? I looked for something in the FAQs on SuperUser markdown but didn't find it.

comment Best way to insure my college daughter's laptop?
This isn't a direct answer, but 'get a cheaper laptop' might be good advice if she does lose it. Netbooks do great for most tasks.

comment Add a netbook to an existing Windows XP home network
Awesome! This did the trick for me. I did these steps on the netbook, then repeated them on every computer on the network (even though the other two could already see each other) - each time I did it on one of the others, the netbook saw it for the first time under "view workgroup computers." I can now share files and the printer. Thank you!
