I recently lost a raid array on a ubuntu 8.04 server forcing me to rebuild it from scratch and/or restore data from backup. (I have copies of /var, /etc, and /home) The problem is I can't seem to rebuild the server so that it works exactly the way it did before, this is killing me!! (fyi... I inherited this system). My specific problem seems to be with Samba. I'm looking for help in two different ways... help 1) either figure out how to restore this system with what I've got backed up. Or fix samba so it works. See details below: [more inside]

How could you rank the validity of a celebrity encounter

I once read a book about a couple of autograph hounds who ranked celebrities by their willingness to meet with fans and sign autographs.

Painting Corning Basement Panels

Has anyone ever painted their Owens Corning Basement System panels? I've scrubbed my watermarked panels per the instructions, contacted Owens Corning, begged for help and contacted the Attorney General's office in my state. All that said, I can't get the water stains out and my basement has been in disrepair for awhile and I'm anxious to put it back together. My son suggested fabric paint and there is a spray paint by Rustoleum. Any ideas other than spring for the new walls? Thanks.
