comment NAS Raid 5 Recovery using mdadm: volume and mount issues, please help
Not to rub any salt into a wound or anything, but do you realise that 2 failed drives on RAID 5 means there is no guaranteed way to get your data back? RAID 5 only helps with a single disk failure. After that you need to replace the disk and rebuild, or replace the disk, rebuild the array and restore from backup.

comment How to wildcard tesseract?
If you have multiple tif files in a directory (lets say example1.tif, example2.tif, and example3.tif then your command gets expandeded by the shell to tesseract example1.tif example2.tif example3.tif hocr. This is done before tesseract gets to see any parameters.

comment Need help for locking down linux desktop
There is no way to delete system stuff in Ubuntu as a user. That means the OS should stay up and stable, no matter what your user attempts. Then again, the same is true for XP. Non-admin users should not be able to corrupt XP on an NTFS partition either. (if you give them admin or use FAT which supports no rights then that is a different case).

Removed the thanks. Fixed bits to bytes (8Gb is 8 gigabit, or 1 GB. I am pretty sure you meant 8 gigaByte).

comment Why can't I resume my Compaq 615 machine?
Does switching to a different (text) console help? Can you still log in remotely? (E.g. use SSH to connect to your machine and then reset the display).

comment What does // mean in a path?
Maybe this comment from unix.stackexchange is the answer: I believe that Windows POSIX compat APIs will also treat //remote/... the same as the UNC path \\remote\... format. – Stephen P Jan 20 '11 at 0:39

comment What does // mean in a path?
I just manually set my PS1 and I can not reproduce it with two slashes. Weird. Not with 1, 3 or 4. Only with 2. I am at a loss to explain this.
