Re: [MAC] After enabling root, sudo doesn't work

I'm not 100% sure about Macs, but the /etc/passwd file should list all of your users, their UIDs, GIDs, and default shells, including users with UID<500.

Re: Best Way to spend $29.95

I enjoyed both, but I'd go with Mass Effect 2 unless you're a big Red Alert fan. ME2 will definitely give you more hours of gameplay unless you enjoy multiplayer.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (Random like the plague)

I hate the anxiety I feel between finishing a test and learning the results. I never get nervous before a test, only after. It makes no sense because it's not as though there is anything I can do about it now.

Re: disconcerting security issue (networking-related)

From what I can glean, RIPE is a WHOIS service based in Europe. http://www.ripe.net/db/index.html . It does not seem to me to be malicious in any way, it just seems they document IP addresses for use in their database. Correct me if I appear to be wrong... RIPE is the Regional Internet Registry for...

Re: Windows Command Prompt

Windows uses the PATH environment variable to determine which directories it should search when you try to run a program from the command line. Here is a decent tutorial on how to alter it. Different directories are delimited with semicolons.

Re: "US plans 'dramatic reductions' in nuclear weapons"

This is a good political move.

A world without nuclear weapons is a pipe dream, you can't put that genie back in its bottle...

Re: Making Debian use an entire /48 block of 6to4 addresses

In IPv6, the best practice is for all of your subnets to be /64s. While you do have a /48 to work with, you should think of it as a /48's worth of /64 subnets (2 16 subnets of 2 64 hosts.). When you assign IPv6 hosts on your network, first create a /64 gateway (say, 2002:d114:4a24:1::1/64) on your r...
