I am a researcher in theoretical ecology and evolution. My work focuses on regime shifts and draws from many disciplines, including mathematics, computer science, economics, and physics. I'm particularly interested in open science, active learning, big data, web tools, R, high performance computing. Visit my open lab notebook for more information on what I do.

comment How do I encrypt an external (USB) hard drive
@bodhi.zazen Right, I just meant to point out that this is not a duplicate of a dependency problem because the user has already installed the software, the said software just has a different name.

comment Linux external device encryption
@Pabi Thanks for the detailed answer but this doesn't seem to reflect the changes to gnome-disk-utility for Ubuntu 14.04. The interface is rather different; this closely matches the 12.04 directions. In 14.04, disk utility has been renamed "disks", and lacks a lot of these options as far as I can tell.

@bodhi.zazen This isn't a duplicate of the issue you link; the disk utility is now called "disks" on 14.04 and doesn't have the options described in the thread the user links.

I've encountered this same issue. The GUI Disk-Utility has been overhauled rather drastically and no longer has the encryption options listed by that documentation (or most other documentation for this task that I can find).

comment vim struggles when copy-pasting large blocks of text in from an external window
Because I feel that Jim's answer is correct, this is a bug. There's no reason one should need to turn syntax highlighting off for a simple copy-paste to work smoothly like it does in gedit, etc. Just seems that the bug depends on the syntax highlighter extension, not base vim.
