comment Drawbacks of installing linux on usb stick?
Instead of USB, have you looked into using compact flash? With swap disabled you should get a significant amount of life out of a single card, and there are various SATA->CF cards or, if you have a spare IDE channel you figure you won't use, IDE->CF. Additionally, you won't be dealing with the potential pitfalls that come with USB (bad unmounts, resets, etc)

comment Running multiple Apache2 instances on Ubuntu
The pid file is used by Apache to store its PID (process ID), so it is a pointer to the running Apache process. It will create it if needed and will write to it. Therefore, the path must be writable by the Apache process.

comment Running multiple Apache2 instances on Ubuntu
Changing LockFile is unnecessary according to Apache2 docs: > The LockFile directive sets the path to the lockfile used when Apache is compiled with either USE_FCNTL_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT or USE_FLOCK_SERIALIZED_ACCEPT. ... The PID of the main server process is automatically appended to the filename.

comment Setting the Timezone with an automated script
According to the technical section of the tzconfig manpage for Debian: >The work done by tzconfig is actually pretty simple. It just updates the link /etc/localtime to point to the correct timezone installed in /usr/share/zoneinfo/.

comment Mail sending error in VBA form
Not what I asked, what's it configured as? Is it set to "smtp"? That is generally not going to be a valid hostname unless your /etc/hosts has it setup, or it is setup in your DNS server. If it's not "smtp" in your Outlook account then the VBA form is not working properly.
