Google's bloody javascript annoying

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 01/04/2010 - 17:22

Google is my startpage. But for two or three months there are some changes. A fade-in effect with javascript. Than a cursor-focus in searchbox with js. Page elements loaded a couple of seconds after searchbox etc. When I start the browser and want to visit an other page. I start to write url in addressbar but I see half of url is in Google's searchbox. It is annoying. How to disable this?

if you want to erase a file use just the command

shred -v filename

its ok if you erase your file one time. if you want to erase your file multi times use the -n parameter.

you overrite with the command the file 2 times.

shred -v -n 2 filename

to erase your partition use fdisk to show your partition

403 error after installing Nagios and Webmin (conflict)

Submitted by nix on Sun, 12/27/2009 - 00:13

After changing from rhel4-cpanel to a debian 5 lenny 64 bit server, I did some configs. I want to install nagios and munin for monitoring the box as recommended. It is a debian 5 root server with lamp(linux + apache 2 + php 5 + mysql 5) and webmin preinstalled. After first login I have installed virtualmin gpl module and migrated some cpanel-backup files. And than Nagios but after nagios I got 403 error of apache on all websites. Checking .htaccess, httpd.conf, chmod and chown did not help.

Ubuntu or CentOS or Fedora Linux or Debian on a Webserver (LAMP) ?

I cannot decide which OS should I take with the EQ4 Server from Hetzner. Really good hardware and much cheaper than Theplanet, 1&1 and Strato etc.

I need a secure and fast server for less than 100 domains and less than 10 active sites with daily 100k+ pageviews and monthly 1-2TB traffic.

I need a good linux distro as webserver with php, mysql, apache, webmin and virtualmin. Later I will need ffmeg. I dont want to pay extra money for control panel like cpanel or plesk. I am not a linux guru therefore it must be easy configurable.

Reasons why i can not decide:
