@Seth, the page doesn't work. It just has a silly on/off slider that does nothing and gives no link to download the extensions.

comment vsftpd - Illegal PORT command
Check your logs to see if they give a reason. Also check and see what it says the IP address of the client is when you connect. If it is your real IP address instead of 127.0.0.1, then that's the problem.

10.04 had a different support lifetime for server vs. desktop, 12.04 and later do not. Also, an idle gui does not consume any cpu, and the ram it uses will be swapped out.

@CurtisGedak, hi Curtis. He said he got rid of Windows 8 and put 7 on, which explains why it's been switched back to msdos partition table.

@AlexMundy, yes, you are destroying the GPT because you are using an msdos partition table instead, and whatever tool you used to repartition the disk did not understand GPT so did not remove it.
