There are many (near) duplicates of your question. Please read these (search for "fax"), then ask a more specific question. E.g. superuser.com/questions/10397/fax-for-linux-desktop , superuser.com/questions/86758/…

comment How to search for selected text in Vim?
Many distros ship a non-standard vim config as the default (probably because the standard vim config disables many useful features, mostly for vi compatibility).

comment Linux ncurses outliner options
Ah, I see, that makes sense. In general it's probably a good idea to mention this in the question (as in "I've tried A, B, C, they are nice, but I'm looking for other solutions to try as well").

comment Linux ncurses outliner options
It's not helpful to flat-out rule out reasonable answers like a text-editor. Please explain why you feel that vim-outliner et al are not suitable.

@RCIX: Sorry, no idea where you can get Windows binaries. I use Linux, where it's part of all distributions :-). Just post a new question to ask about windows binaries.

comment Ubuntu says FAT16, windows says NTF?
@myforwik: In theory yes. But be very careful editing your partitions; if you make a mistake, you might lose all your data. Anyway, there's no reason to change the partition type. AFAIK it's not used by any software, it's just for display.

comment Sharing a modem INTERNET on LAN
"USB modem" is not enough. Is it a cable modem? For analog dialup? What ISP? How did you configure dialup? You won't get meaningful help if you do not provide the details of your configuration.

comment Sharing a modem INTERNET on LAN
Please describe your hardware situation. How do you connect to the LAN, how do you connect to the modem, how do you connect to the Internet, etc.

comment Does using TrueCrypt makes “file shredding” tools obsolete?
Actually, the cryo attack is relevant: It will e.g. allow you to get at a system that is running, but protected by a pw-protected screensaver.
