comment Do PGP private key blocks “contain” the public key as well?
Thanks Bram; I've edited the question for extra clarity. And yes, saving ~3 KB has no real benefit, I'm merely curious.

comment Recovering Windows Vista Partition after Ubuntu Natty N. install
Reboot, and see if you can find Windows Vista in Grub's menu. If the menu does not appear automatically, hold 'shift' while booting.

Make sure that the 11_windows file you have made has the executable bit enabled, and try again.

comment Ubuntu/C++ : Make directory in /usr/local/bin/
Not quite. The contents of bin should not include directories, but only directly executable files. If you have multiple final executables for your program, you may want to hyphenate the name, as in myapp-program1, myapp-program2, etc. Any supporting files should go into share if they're not architecture-dependent, and lib if they are.

comment Ubuntu/C++ : Make directory in /usr/local/bin/
Your example is somewhat dodgy; why would you want to create a directory under /usr/local/bin? That completely goes against the FHS. Supporting files for a program go in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/share.

comment Editing MBR for flash device
Oh, I see. I'm not aware of any GUI program that does all that in one, so my best suggestion is to use a GUI partition editor like palimpsest or gparted, then use dd if=/dev/sdx of=mbr bs=512 count=1 to copy the MBR out.

Oh, so you mean a binary file editor, or hex editor?

comment convert full-disk RAID5 array to partition-based array?
Though I haven't been able to try it, because since asking the question I've recreated a new 3TB (4x 1TB) RAID5 array from scratch. However, your answer looks very possible.

comment Rebuilt Windows XP box periodically shuts down instantly: any ideas why?
Rhythmbox and gtkpod are just as good, if not better than iTunes, and have excellent support for the iPod database.
