comment Ubuntu 10.04 CPU Throttling
I've poked around in the BIOS for the P-M60 a bunch, but never seen anything for setting the CPU speed only. Unfortunately, Intel processors are always multiplier-locked, so I'd have to downclock the entire system to do this.

comment Ubuntu 10.04 CPU Throttling
This stuff was working in versions previous to 10.04 automatically. I think 10.04 broke something.

comment What are your favorite open source tools?
This is the tool that got my classmates out of Word and closer to the world of LaTeX. Some have even bridged the gap into LaTeX (mostly since one professor gave extra points for using it).

comment Windows logs me out immediately after login. Any ideas?
Also, try checking out savedump.exe. The name sounds like a debugging utility, and I can't imagine why it'd be running in userland before user login. It might be badware masquerading as goodware and messing with your system.

@limbus: Check your KVM manual. Mine let me remap it to Scroll Lock x2.

comment putty and screen and scroll-back buffer
@chris: If you're using putty, you should already have your hands on the keyboard. If you have a laptop, try seeing if you can remap some keys you don't use as frequently to PgUp/PgDn.

comment Why Mac OS X box runs VMWare faster than Linux box?
If you're running 64-bit, I think there may be a more recent kernel.

Just a bit of movie fakery, but not egregious.

In all fairness, Jurassic Park did have legit MacOS and UNIX interfaces -- the UNIX interface was of the *Step type, if I remember right (except in that one scene, which existed already as an SGI demo app).

comment Hard Drive Speed: RPM vs. Cache
I was asking since several years go, when consumer level drives with 8MB of cache debuted, they were noted as being significantly faster than a drive with the same areal density and RPM.
