comment How do you change thunderbird temporary file storage?
Instead of exporting TMP you can define it on the next line; eg write TMP=/media/truecrypt1/scratch nohup thunderbird & on one line.

comment Screen totally freezes in few minutes after upgrade to Ubuntu Server 12.10
I see a recent edit mentions i915.modeset. I was assuming i915 isn't relevant to the ProLiant ML110 G7. If the i915 is relevant, note that I installed an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS system on another person's computer a couple of weeks ago and had to use i915.i915_enable_rc6=0 to avoid screen freezing (even though some ubuntu pages imply the i915_enable_rc6 problem was fixed a year ago).

No, quiet splash also is used by grub for ubuntu. For example, grep splash /etc/default/grub on my Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS system shows: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" (Note, don't make any changes in /etc/default/grub unless you have already tested them during boot with grub.) Anyway, did you see Matrox or MGA or G200EH anywhere in grub stuff? linux.die.net shows some mga options and driver names but I don't know how to specify them during booting.
