About a week ago someone left a plastic garden gnome in my yard. I'm sure I read something, somewhere, about this being a thing but I can't remember where I saw it. I vaguely remember that I'm supposed to pass it along but maybe I'm supposed to add something to it first. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm in Denver, if that matters.
When I was in college in the mid-90s, I had a "game" (broadly defined) for my Macintosh Quadra 650 (aw yiss!) that was labeled ITA Choco. Here's what seems to be a site by the creators (partially in Japanese, partially in 404 errors). What was the point of it? And what does the site say? [more inside]
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 w/Gnome - I use proXPN for Windows machines, but have never been able to get it to establish a connection w/the Ubuntu laptop I have. I'm looking for recommendations for VPNs that work reliably with Linux where set-up is basic enough for a Linux novice to understand.

GDM KDE GNOME KDM XDM XFCE ARGH! Logon manager? Window managers? KDM that can load GNOME? I am so confused on this topic of the differences and how they all fit together. Can someone point out some good things to read on the topics? Something that ties it all together?

How do I setup monitor "gridlines" on Linux? Nvidia has software for Windows that let's you divide your monitor into virtual sub-monitors or set gridlines so that if you maximize a window in that certain section, it only maximizes to that particular area. This is particularly useful on big monitors. Does anyone know of any utilities on Linux that do this or how to configure KDE or Gnome (or I suppose another window manager) to do this? [more inside]
I have Compiz/XGL working with GNOME, I just want it in KDE instead. I'm running Ubuntu Dapper on my laptop, and I just don't understand the config files. [more inside]

How do I make GTK apps look good in KDE? Although I use KDE exculsively, I still use some GTK apps, like Firefox. (Oh for a Qt build of Firefox!) I hate the default look of GTK. I can use the GNOME theme editor to change the GNOME theme to something acceptable. The trouble is, 1) This seems to make the fonts in all my GTK apps too big, and 2) I lose the changes as soon as I log out. (And no, I'm not about to start using GNOME.)
