comment Bash on Free (extra) Web Space
A great place to learn about this kind of thing is panix.com. They sell cheap virtual computers with any OS and Webserver you want and provide awesome support. (I am not affiliated with them in any way other than having a couple professors who used their service to teach.)

I'll check the driver, though I doubt it since I was using Ubuntu 10.04 but upgraded to the latest version of Mint

comment Key Stroke of SHIFT i displays “BIG PAPA” instead (full Virus/Anti Spyware Scans complete!)
OP's case was rather benign. Before I outgrew that prank (I was about 11) I was more "creative." :)

Thanks. Would have realised if I stopped to think. Guess I was being over-paranoid about my fifty bucks. :)

Checked that even before removing the package. It's the standard homepage.

Does the file have to be owned by mysql or can I just write it up myself?
