"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence."

Both just connected to each other over ethernet cable via a router. They have SSH'd in both directions in the past.

I clocked the E8200 down to 2.00 GHz. I could go lower of course but it's a nice even number and I want a little bit of grunt if I choose to do some transcoding or what have you. In any case, she's purring along nicely now.

This hasn't worked for me unfortunately. When you say "text" do you mean "text" or "nosplash text"? Anyway, I've hosed the system (separate issue, don't worry) so I'll get back to you on this one. Thanks again.

OK, I'll give that a try, cheers. It's headless now so I'll hook it up tonight and report back. Haven't tried Webmin. Will do.

comment How to save power on a Xubuntu server?
+1 - I wanted to see if Xubuntu 11.04 was actually usable as a desktop (it is - I wasn't impressed with Ubuntu 11.04) so I installed a full desktop. Now that's said and done, should I bother uninstalling certain packages? I could always do a fresh install I guess. Regrettably the mobo doesn't have onboard graphics. Thanks for the openfiler suggestion. I'll check it out now.
