comment Can I virtualize my current XP installation within Ubuntu?
@NoCatharsis: If you use a dedicated disk for XP, try dd. Otherwise, it's a file in your home directory which you can simply copy. Backups have never been easier :-)

comment Fans not turning off when custom built computer sleeps
@Brian515: Since you ask, there probably isn't. With all the fans I had so far, I could simply plug the two-pin female cable onto the three-pin male on the board. The third pin will be tight or bent just a little. If you get it wrong, the fan won't work but it won't short-circuit either.

Why do you have to do it manually for stackoverflow.com? It's in the list of search engines in my version of chrome.

comment Shared Linux machine - block home folder access to other users?
@whitequark: That's why root should only allow sudo to people they can trust. Let's say it different: If I compare the amount of bad people can do to the amount of bad they do, we're still pretty good.

root can do anything by default. But you can install a secured version of Linux (like SELinux) where you can restrict root, too.

@sa125: Be careful with the -R: It will also change permissions for all files. Also, don't forget the -x flag. If that is set, other users can still cd into the directory (even though they can't list it).
