Ubuntu backup awesomeness

Filed under

Twas a night before Christmas it was the 12th to be exact at 3 am beside my computer I did sat.

My ubuntu did stall, I had pondered and pondered and did a fresh install.

Swiftly I got to the the manual partition, then suddenly I had a fine apparition.

What I had saw in my wandering minds eye was my home directory gone arye.

And never again would I have to stay awake so late instead I shall be sleeping (isnt that great).

I jumped and I yelled with vigour and excite “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”

(ok im stopping with the poetry its too hard to make everything rhyme)
What that meant was my lucid install broke because of multiple issues with Xorg because I use the Nvidia drivers. The straw that broke the camel’s back was trying out the RGBA stuff thats coming in for lucid.

Long story short I had lots of problems

Distributing encryption software may break the law

Developers, distributors, and users of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) often face a host of legal issues which they need to keep in mind. Although areas of law such as copyright, trademark, and patents are frequently discussed, these are not the only legal concerns for FOSS. One area that often escapes notice is export controls. It may come as a surprise that sharing software that performs or uses cryptographic functions on a public website could be a violation of U.S. export control law. Export controls is a term for the various legal rules which together have the effect of placing restrictions, conditions, or even wholesale prohibitions on certain types of export as a means to promote national security interests and foreign policy objectives. Export control has a long history in the United States that goes back to the Revolutionary War with an embargo of trade with Great Britain by the First Continental Congress. The modern United States export control regime includes the Department of State's regulations covering export of munitions, the Treasury Department's enforcement of United States' foreign embargoes and sanctions regimes, and the Department of Commerce's regulations applying to exports of "dual-use" items, i.e. items which have civil applications as well as terrorism, military, or weapons of mass destruction-related applications.
