comment Linux - set local time without permission
Remember to EXPORT the TZ variable once it is set! Otherwise, the setting will not propagate to other commands that you run.

There is no such thing as a blantent misuse of any unix command. Well maybe the guy using nroff to convert decimal numbers to roman numerals could belong in this catagory. :-)

comment The system was running slow and reboot was useless
Not much for us to provide you with any sort of definitive answer to your problem. You should do a lot more detective work analyzing logs and error messages during the process.

Maybe the solution is to put the machine on a simple timer and not use the AUTO power-on mechanism.

comment Can't write bluray disks
Are you trying to write a Single layer or Dual layer BlueRay DVD? Sounds like you are trying to use the Dual Layer write. The drive you have might not be able to handle Dual Layer. You could use Single Layer BlueRay DVDs (25GB) and see what happens.

Hmmmm....seems to me that your video card would be doing more work with HDMI over simple VGA thus with more work, more heat. I don't necessarily see a problem here.

Read the instructions? You might wish to use one of the various commercial products, many of them have a 30 day trial period.
