I just wanted to write something about what I think is important for Ubuntu and Debian and all users who use these two distributions. It's about something what I have found on the internet and what should be mentioned here IMO.

As many of you know, Ubuntu developers and contributors are reporting bugs and contributing patches to Debian, so I wanted to post a link about the details on how to tag the bugs you file. Note that "submittodebian" script in the ubuntu-dev-tools package...

Smoothwall forwarding troubles

Posted 06-10-2008 at 07:32 AM by w7hd

recover from HP Backup&Recovery partition mess

Hello everybody!
I sometimes solve a problem, that may be of interest to others. It usually takes a lot of internet search, and taking information from many sources. That's why it is not easy to find the most appropriate place to put a feedback or post a "thank-you". I think the easiest way will be to start this blog. If it helps someone else, I will be happy.
