comment high performance with xen, vmware or virtualbox
I have been meaning to get around to building a Home Server utilising Xen and PCI pass-through for a mythTV back-end domain as well as separate domains for a file server, a mail server (hopefully using MailPile), a web server (for a Wordpress site etc) and other domains for uses which I have not yet considered. My planned setup is - googledrive.com/host/0B_kSZeNQ1ivtSXRnaU1maVZuelE/….

comment Can't access Ubuntu's shared folders from Windows 7
To create a shared folder, accessible through Win7, in Ubuntu 13.04, I did: sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAME to create a samba user for me, then used right-click menu options to set sharing and permissions. As I created a shared folder outside of my home folder, I had to right-click the folder and set permissions to Owner, Group, and Others - Access: Create and Delete Files. I did not alter my smb.conf and this file does not show any shares configured within. This GUI process seems to work outside of SAMBA's conventions. This is worrying and confusing.

comment Can I set up LIRC to enable me to navigate the Unity Launcher, using my MCE Remote Control, and how would I do this?
Sorry for the belated acknowledgement, but thanks for your input, jack. I have been trying to get a MythTV Backend server up and running lately, so this one has gone on the back burner. I will try this, along with @Bullwinkle_Moose's suggestion as soon as I get the opportunity. This does seem the right way to go. Thanks. ;)

Thanks, Bullwinkle. I have posted a couple of suggestions to your Ubuntu Forum thread, so check them out and see what you think.
