What to do when Word crashes?

"Such is the nature of the beast that sooner or later Word will crash. When you restart, Word may try and recover the document you were working on, but this is a bit hit and miss, so don't rely on it. Configure Word to create a backup file - and save often. It is good practice to drill CTRL+S into your brain and apply it every time you pause for thought. Then when the wheel comes off, you don't lose too much work." gmayor.com

SHORTCUTS: linux screen keyboard shortcuts

"screen is a much under utilised program, which provides the following functionality:

* Remote terminal session management (detaching or sharing terminal sessions)
* unlimited windows (unlike the hardcoded number of Linux virtual consoles)
* scrollback buffer (not limited to video memory like Linux virtual consoles)
* copy/paste between windows
* notification of either activity or inactivity in a window
* split terminal (horizontally) into multiple regions (vertical support added Aug 2008)
* locking other users out of terminal

SOLUTION jsonwrapper: json_encode for earlier versions of PHP 5.x

"What is this about?
PHP 5.2 adds the json_encode function, which turns almost any PHP data structure into valid JavaScript code. Hashes, arrays, arrays of hashes, whatever.

Unfortunately a lot of Linux distributions are still shipping with PHP 5.1.x.

jsonwrapper implements the json_encode function if it is missing, and leaves it alone if it is already present. So it is nicely future-compatible.

Just add:

require 'jsonwrapper.php';" boutell.com

The Perfect Setup - SuSE 10.1

"This is a detailed description about how to set up a SuSE 10.1 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.).

I will use the following software:

* Web Server: Apache 2.2.0
* Database Server: MySQL 5.0
* Mail Server: Postfix
* DNS Server: BIND9
* FTP Server: proftpd (ISPConfig will not work with vsftpd on SUSE 10.1)
* POP3/IMAP: I will use Maildir format and therefore install Courier-POP3/Courier-IMAP.
* Webalizer for web site statistics" howtoforge.org
