Ubuntu's native Terminal not scrolling back through output on remote server

any idea why my terminal wouldn't have backscroll when i'm connected to the server?

Settings work as expected locally (scroll back 4,000 lines) but not at all when connected to a remote server.

After trying most of the results for 'terminal' in Ubuntu's package manager, i didn't have an answer to this question, but i did have a solution.

Installing Chiliproject on Ubuntu 10.10

[After testing this out, we chose to use the package-managed redmine for now]

Installing Chiliproject with PostgreSQL on Ubuntu 10.10.

Following the instructions on Installation on Ubuntu wiki.

sudo mkdir -p /srv/www/chiliproject
sudo adduser --system --home /srv/www/chiliproject --group --shell /bin/sh --disabled-login chiliproject

Update of Rake broke Vlad

This finally fixed it:

sudo gem uninstall rake -v 0.9.0

Thank you,

...but presumably chiliproject won't work?

Dunno, the new rake seems to break everything for everybody, so getting rid of it is good...

Updating your Rakefile and syncing content

As when working on any Agaric project that may not have had maintenance done on it in a while, update the Rakefile to be in line with current processes.

First, make sure your Vlad checkout is up-to-date. Go to it cd ~/vlad (in my case, i symlinked Vlad's true location to my home folder so he can find it. On my system Vlad's true location is /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i686-linux/vlad/) and git pull.

cd ~/code/projectname
mv Rakefile RakefileOLD
cp /home/ben/vlad/Rakefile Rakefile
diff -up

Collaborative Software - Wiki Wikis

WikiWiki software, or simply wikis, are powerful collaboration tools.

Agaric Design creates custom wikis for you and your team, using the MediaWiki software that powers the world-famous Wikipedia.

We can set up password-protected wikis that are completely private, or access-controlled wikis that are viewable by the public but only editable by users with permissions.

Agaric Design can also provide lessons in wiki terminology and editing proctices so you can make the most of the productivity-enhancing potential of group collaboration.

World Social Forum 2008 Global Day of Action [update circa 2018: domain no longer controlled by the World Social Forum]

Agaric Design Collective created to enable groups all over the world to plan and publicize participation in the Global Call for Action, with demonstrations and workshops held in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.

Firefox Keyword Shortcuts to Drupal Resources and Searches

Inspired by Jody Hamilton's Drupal timesavers I updated and am sharing my Firefox wildcard-enhanced shortcuts to common Drupal-related founts of information. See Adam Ross's post for a file you can import.

Alan Frankel suggests this information begin with how to create a keyword shortcut in the first place:

How to use Less Than or Greater Than in a switch statement


(From rnreekez in the comments, syntax modified to conform to Drupal's more verbose coding standards.)

Technically you want your switch statement to process for all things TRUE.
