Have you tried "screen -D -RR <sessionname>" ?

comment How do I generate 300 lists of 12 numbers between 1 and 33 without repeats in excel
This belongs to stackoverflow. It also needs to be retagged with the word 'algorithm'. I don't know if Excel can do this, but it's a rather simple task for a program.

comment Checking if computer is compromised?
It's also possible that, during a setup, it scanned the whole network/domain to find printers, domain controllers, etc etc.. A one-time deal which showed as an unusual spike. Who knows.

comment How is it possible that I can log into my account with two different passwords?
I'd completely forgotten about that! I wonder if Ubuntu's SSH server is old enough to fizzle there.

Now it's time to follow Raphink's path - what's up with /var/log/auth.log ?

So you logged in via SSH ? What kind of authentication scheme are you using for SSH ? Maybe it allows incoming connections from your username at your local IP ? SSH authentication isn't a topic I know very well, I prefer locking it down more than opening it up.

What is account 'ender' ? What were the two passwords (if we can know) -- otherwise, how different are they, what are the md5 like? From where did you log on (tty, vty, sty, su, su - .... ) ? What's the line like in /etc/shadow ?

comment In Ubuntu, MoBlock makes it take a while to actually start using internet
Sounds like it is verifying that the connection is there, but not actually handshaking and getting an IP until the connection is required. If, when you say "nearly instantly", you mean the length of time of one or two heartbeats, then that's what's happening. What version of Ubuntu is it?

Outlook Express actually has some really cool features that Outlook doesn't. Go figure.

Did you compile the proper options in the kernel (SCSI Generic, CD DRIVE support) ?

comment Duplicate pseudo terminals in linux
"xterm-179-6.EL3" is probably "Enterprise Linux 3" and may be a more recent version of xterm, or one that has some more specific things necessary for RHEL.

comment Fedora 9 (64bit) won't recognize 8G of RAM
Here, take a look at this article. I hope it helps: linux.com/archive/feed/119287 At the worst, you may need to patch the kernel (easier than it sounds) or download a pre-patched / custom kernel (safer than it sounds).

IIRC, I have seen some without nano (red hat servers, I believe), but it is rare.

comment Fedora 9 (64bit) won't recognize 8G of RAM
All kernels have the option available. It's a matter of selecting it. Sadly, I have never compiled my own kernel in Fedora and do not know what specific steps you need to take in order to not break any automation - but on that level, Google can help! If you're lucky, you may already have the source for the kernel available - for me, with Gentoo, they are under /usr/src but I am not sure where they are for Fedora. You may be able to get them from yum. If you compile a kernel that doesn't work -- just boot from the old kernel!
