If I post something erroneous please tell me so I can fix it and learn from the error.

I'm currently developing a voxel game called Mosstest in Java as a learning exercise.

I can be contacted by email at obsessivefoss@gmail.com, if one is interested in my work. Please do not email asking for help.

comment Why does my server freeze everyday at the same time?
Can you set up a cronjob to dump ps -A|grep "php5" at 0:49:59? Also, does PHP do anything, to your knowledge, at that time? You could consider migrating to ServerFault.se if few answers arrive here.

comment Are the Linux utilities parts of the kernel/shell?
@xczzhh The first three are part of my first entry in the list, and the file manager is partly filesystem code and partly the shell that lets you traverse folders. However, the kernel is still involved by maintaining a system-wide list of filesystem mounts.

Stupid idea: What about setting up 2 SSH server instances independent of each other on different ports?

comment Ubuntu installed alongside an infected Windows system
Also add that if the OP wants to run any programs in wine from their infected Windows installation, especially as root, they may open their system to infection. Also, the safest option is to format everything and then install Ubuntu.

comment When would yum be of use to an Ubuntu user?
+1 The idea to use it as a backup is a good one--I have needed to get some software while my dpkg cache was amok.

comment Is there a Google Drive client available?
@izx I couldn't find Git instructions, but did find a modified Google Docs FS that supports Drive. If you can point out the location of the instructions for Git, I would be happy to add them with credit.

comment Can I use my prepaid phone balance (in pesos) to buy from the Software Centre?
Could you put the list of currency codes in a code block so it gets scrollbars? It's kind of disrupting page display.

comment I want files in fat32 partition to be shown in my personal folder
I recommend issuing, in a terminal, sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.old to make a backup so if anything goes wrong, the OP may run sudo rm /etc/fstab&&sudo cp /etc/fstab.old /etc/fstab to restore.
