Wow. If you want to see what H.264 can do, check out this absolutely jaw-dropping demo.

You can still see some of the effects of the use of pframes in parts of the video, but overall, it's pretty nice.

Too bad Nautilus sucks so hard. "File Browsser" mode shoudl be the default in this day and age, but the interface for that is clunky. If they don't want to make that mode suck less hard, they should at least make a keyboard modifier for the other mode so that double clicking on a folder opens the folder in the same window. And there should be a reasonable "address bar" in one of those modes which doesn't suck. Oh well...

Inapplicable, but I'm trying to imagine Ford's Ubuntu system doing the Time Warp again.

I know it's sometimes good to reboot machines just to you know let them breathe, but there appears to be no reason for it. Nothing in my logs, ...
Maybe somebody's sending me a ping of death.

But I thought all modern machines were protected from the Ping of Death.

Yeah, but you can mitigate its effects somehow. I just remember trying to do a ping of death on certain machines and finding myself unable to make it work.

Maybe you've just got an intermittent hardware problem. What happens during these reboots? Any evidence of a kernel panic or does it just reset? Or is it an orderly reboot?

just reset.
the logs show nothing weird, and it boots cleanly.
I figure one of these times it won't. :-(

No, but I think I know what it is.
My dad has a linux machineI set up for him years ago at his house.
I zip up all his important stuff and copy it to my machine at my house.
Except it hasn't been working for months, I use to use a samba shared and mount the file system and yada yada yada.
The other day I noticed it wasn't working, so I just set it up to do scp.
And it put it in cron.daily.
So now at midnight it copies the file to my machine.
And then my machine reboots.
I noticed today that the date on the file was the minute before the date on /var/log/dmesg

If I untar the file, it's valid, so the whole file is getting here.

So can somebody explain why an scp makes my machine reboot?
