Oh FFS

Can we please have a constitutional amendment banning anyone called "Blair" from holding any form of office? Ever?

For that matter, can we please HAVE A BLOODY CONSTITUTION!?!

Rule 1: do not cause your customer to vomit

Just been in two shops with malfunctioning halogen lighbulbs, flickering in that very special way that attempt to make me pass out and/or vomit.

I'm wondering how widely shared this reaction is...

Poll #575274 Flashing lights

Are you sensitive to flashing / flickering lights?

Never
13(23.2%)
Occassionally
32(57.1%)
Frequently
10(17.9%)
Snowflake (?!?)
1(1.8%)

To what extent?

Mild annoyance
20(46.5%)
Severe dizziness
3(7.0%)
Fainting
0(0.0%)
Fit
0(0.0%)
Snowflake
4(9.3%)

Samba "Modify" permission

I've set up Samba on a debian box to share a subversion sandbox. When I try and perform SVN operations such as commmit, update, I get the "scream of the dying tortoise" and get told I can't set a file in the share read-write. Now, looking at the permissions on that file in a windows box, I can see that I have Read, Write permissions, but not "Modify", "Full Control" or "Read & Execute" (IIRC).

Now I'm pretty sure what I need is either Full Control or Modify. How in *&*&*(& do I get this?

All help *VERY* gratefully received! Once I crack this I might actually be able to get this server controlled.
