Started programming in Basic, which took a while to realise is not programming.

Now really getting into javascript, and trying to use it like a real programming language, and not like Basic.

Like wordpress, but would prefer someone to completely re-write it in node.js

comment How to read corrupt disc
Unfortunately there is no /dev/cdrom... maybe it is another issue. The cd drive does work fine, auto-mounting other CDs into the /media directory. I checked the device, which was /dev/sr0 - and used that instead. I tried dd if=/dev/sr0 of=cd.dat with no joy - actually dd just hangs, and no data is copied to cd.dat. I tried this command on a working CD, after un-mounting it, and the command works. Thanks for your help... any more ideas?

comment How to read corrupt disc
@Rinzwind I am pretty sure dd comes before mounting. I usually unmount things before copying them with dd. It works on the device level, copying the 0s and the 1s, and not even looking at anything as abstracted as a file. When that does not work, I expect the problem is a corrupt data disk (other disks work ok on the drive).

@Rinzwind because the disc won't read on the device, I expect it is corrupt. And because I am unable to use dd to copy the binary data.

comment How do I add a DNS server via resolv.conf?
I voted for this because the third approach is by far the simplest way to do this.

comment Why did my upgrade to 12.04 fail with “glibc not found” or “libc6” or “requires kernel 2.6.24” error?
I decided to wait a while until I update, hoping that the issue would be resolved without further effort. I have had to re-install the system a couple of times already. I suspect the top answer might hold the key to the problem, but have not tested it yet. I will tick it once verified - which I will endeavor to do soon.
