comment Does the kernel 2.6.38-10-generic plug a memory hole?
You could look in the bug reports, then, that's a likely source for info about "We fixed it." And of course, its not likely that just the memory fix would prompt a huge kernel update.

comment Hibernating on ubuntu 10.04
Does it eventually get past that and boot, though? (And on a side note, to actually ping me in comments, type @TheEvilPhoenix. The system removes the spaces from highlights ;) )

comment How to create a bootable USB stick to flash a BIOS
@elmicha: A drive needs to be bootable in order to run any files at boot. @sawa: did you try actually writing the image to the drive rather than leaving the image file just sitting on the drive? As in actually extract the files in the image and write them to the disk?

comment What VOIP servers for Ubuntu can I find that have very low latency
I'm confused by your question. Latency and lag are determined by distance to server, not by the software. I run 6 TS servers off of a box I own on Ubuntu and it all operates smoothly and efficiently (the total memory and CPU usage of the 6 server instances alongside each other is <=387MB RAM and 10% of one CPU core at max). From 8 different locations including across the world (the TS servers are meeting places for global groups), latency/lag is never > 80ms.
