    Room Security

    A safe is sort of useless if you can't attach it to some thing big, some thing to bare in mind (Can't get in the safe? Steal the safe!). Also, biometric locks while convenient and a bit Orwellian are not necessarily the most reliable things, I'd personally prefer a good old fashioned lock and key or number pad or combination lock.
  2. You set the passphrase to blank?

    Ubuntu Usb 3.0

    There is a good chance that any you buy will work: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1339855 and that's a year old. Can't be certain of this though. Find a card, Google it.
  4. lol, ok, well, at least it's not a file access problem :P Change it back of course. I have to wonder if this is a problem on the server and not the client. ssh-keygen isn't asking you for a passphrase is it?
  5. Are the files rw-rw-r--?

    Did you associate .lnk files with virtual box? Best bet to fix this: Go in to the registry, and delete the key that associates the lnk extension with virtual box :/
  8. That is where the drivers fro the RAID controller are necessary.
  9. Nope, it's my fault, I read your post but magically managed to blank out all the negatives. Any way, stick in a Windows install disk, doesn't really matter which one (Vista, 2k3, 7, etc.) and run a file system check from the recovery console.
  10. Since you can get in to safe mode, have you tried running a filesystem check?
  11. Setup a bridge between the two adapters on the laptop: http://wiki.debian.org/BridgeNetworkConnections
  12. It will be in a holder of some nature. There are a few different designs of holders, some require you to press on a clip of some nature to remove the battery, other just use some nature of spring to hold the battery in. Since you know relatively little about the insides of computers, I suggest you give this a read to avoid accidentally damaging the computer. It's quite easy to avoid causing static damage, just make sure you touch an earthed piece of bare metal before you start touching things inside the computer.
  13. The motherboard battery, just the battery, not any thing else. It will probably look like this:
  14. Possibly, but at least you will be able to boot from your USB stick (may be), which will allow you to reinstall GRUB and (nearly certainly) fix the problem.
  15. Disconnect the computer from the wall power socket, open the case, remove the motherboard battery for a minuet. This will cause the BIOS to restore the default settings. If the default settings contain a password, google for the default password.
  16. You probably need to tell the computer to try and boot from the flash drive. Go in to the BIOS and check the boot order or look for a boot menu option in the first post screen.
  17. Boot of a live disk, if you don't have a live disk... make one... if you can't make one... install windows on a second hard disk, use that to make one! Get a live disk been the a key point :P
  18. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows Before that, just check that there are no memory sticks or similar plugged into the computer, also unplug any card readers that may be attached.
  19. What OSs are installed on the computer?
  20. Every thing will probably work on Ubuntu except (Probably) the 3G adapter. I'd Google a bit before buying any kind of 3G device and install Linux.
  21. What do you intend to use it for?
  22. You could use a VPN service like hamachi.
  23. SSH will work with IPv6, but the trouble with using Teredo is that the computer you are connecting from needs to be on the IPv6 Internet as well. Can you not setup port forwarding?
