    Log entry question

    Are you running a VPN? or maybe Tomcat? I would say it is probably a public key issue. have a look in /etc/ipsec.secrets

    Concern over heatsink weight on X79 motherboard.

    As long as everything is screwed down properly (heat sink to motherboard and motherboard to standoffs) it will be fine. I suppose it could get damaged if there was a lot of motion, say you dropped it or something.

    @Dogs, that is absolutely true in regards to what the OP was asking. Didn't mean to derail this thread.

    multi core cpu's?

    Sure there is something special about multi-threading in any OS as they all use different schedulers. Performance from any 1 scheduler will show differences. However the biggest differences appear in the GUI. In linux there is a choice of what you would like to pull from userspace to create a...

    Songs for speaker comparison/testing ?

    I think that is a very tricky question. I think it depends on what kind of music you like (as you said songs as opposed to spoken word clarity). The best songs are song that you know well. A good set of speakers will hopefully let you hear something that you have never heard before. My favorite...

    Cron Help! Need to edit a coldreboot command

    That's tricky. The way I do it, and maybe there is a better way, is you have to do some math and logic. So for every 45 min I would setup 3 different cron jobs as such 0,45 0-23/3 * * * 30 1-23/3 * * * 15 2-23/3 * * *So the 0,1,2 says start the every 3 hours at different times. I'll...

    Cron Help! Need to edit a coldreboot command

    It does not mean once every 3 days, it means at the 0 minute of the 0 hour every 3 days. Sure that would work but not why you think, 30 was just a number i pulled out of the air. So by putting 30 it will run at the 30th minute of the hour. If you put 0 it will run at the 0th minute of the hour...

    Linux Mint Debian Edition

    What Ubuntu has done is taken Debian and modified it to meet their own goals, so much so that it is no longer compatible (to a degree). It like saying your kids came from you but have grown into their own person and are not exactly the same as you

    Cron Help! Need to edit a coldreboot command

    That would run every minute of every other hour That would run on the 59th of every other hour. Anything over half really messes with the timing when using "/" because it is not a continual counter. For example in the minute column the biggest number you could have there is 59 as 60 would be an...
