Backup for me from http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/make_thunderbird_3_look_act_like_thunderbird_2:
Here are some tips for making TB3 look & act like TB2:
(1) Switch to "All Folders" view. Use the little left and right arrows in the header bar at the top of the folder tree pane. Or go to Help --> Migration Assistant and then select 'use "all folders" mode'.
(2) Switch to the old, familiar toolbar. Go to Help --> Migration Assistant and then select "use original toolbar".
(3) Turn off indexing. Go to Tools --> Options --> Advanced --> General (tab) and uncheck the "Enable Global Search and Indexer" box.
(4) Open messages in new window (not a tab). Go to Tools --> Options --> Advanced --> Reading & Display (tab). Change the "Open messages in:" selection to "A new message window".
(5) Hide tabs when there is only 1. Go to Tools --> Options --> Advanced --> General (tab) and click the "Config Editor..." button. If a cautionary dialog box pops up then click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button. Start typing in the filter line of the small window that opens. Type "mail.tabs.autoHide". You will see a seeting with this preference name in the list below. Double click it to change it to "true".
Doing both (4) and (5) will (mostly) turn off tabs.
With last Skype4Py Arek changed a bit the logging. To enable it now you need to put the following in your script:

Recently I wondered which hardware I am using in a remote root server. A friend of mine came up with the following command:
This even works on ESX 3.5 Hosts. You see really detailled which hardware is in the box.
Get CDP Neighbor info (http://communities.vmware.com/thread/153320):
esxcfg-info -n | less
NIC Teaming for Cisco Switches:
On ESX set “Route based on ip hash” (http://blog.scottlowe.org/2008/09/05/setting-vmware-esx-vswitch-load-balancing-policy-via-cli/):
vmware-vim-cmd /hostsvc/net/vswitch_setpolicy --nicteaming-policy=loadbalance_ip vSwitch1

Today I had the problem of displaying the version of the interpreter in a perl and a python script.

After installation of VMware ESX 3.5 on a SunFire X2100 the machine always faulted with a root-fs error.
Looking at the VMware forums, I found a post by rpartmann who provides a script to solve this issue.
With the help of his script I found the relevant steps to fix this issue for me:
- Boot into troubleshooting mode (there the SATA controller works).
- go to /etc/vmware/pciid
- edit sata_nv.xml
- As last entry before </vendor> I added:
<name>MCP55 SATA Controller</name>
- then I had to rebuild the PCI-ID Table:
- regenerate the boot-filesystems:
Then I could start without problem on my nVidia SATA chipset.
You might need to do the same procedure after an update of VMware. Haven’t been there so far.
