comment Apache won't follow symlinks even with permissions set
I'm sure I could use an Alias to do this, but for me a symlinks is clearer and more transparent - a simple ls -l will tell you where files are being serves from, rather than having to go looking through httpd.conf. Also I just wanted to know why the symlink doesn't work! :)

comment Apache won't follow symlinks even with permissions set
it appears that SELinux is enabled (getenforce results in Enforcing). I will have to do some experimenting to see if that's the cause.

After further experimentation, I suspect the problem is to do with some sort of permission problem on the /tmp/hello file. But I still don't understand the details.

FollowSymLinks is set in a <Directory> block. Note that Apache does follow the link-local symlink, but not the link-tmp symlink in the same directory.

comment Why doesn't Taskmanager show all memory use?
-1 The VM memory doesn't show up in any of the Resource Monitor columns. ALso, Task Manager can be configured to show the same four columns via the View menu.

comment How do we pronounce “/etc” folder?
I have always though of "etsee" at the old-school Unix hacker pronunciation, while less experienced types say "e-t-c" and hardly anyone says "et cetera". I'm in the "etsee" camp myself.

comment How to stop smiley in Thunderbird showing up as a J?
-1 because this doesn't answer the question (viz. "How to stop smiley in Thunderbird showing up as a J") Actually I don't have enough rep to downvote yet, so you're lucky this time. J

comment What is the point of Aero Peek?
@Molly7244, how can you use Peek to bring up a window? As soon as I move the mouse away from the bottom-right corner, all the windows come back. I agree with Stigma that Peek seems useless unless you have desktop gadgets.
