notdrupal <deleted><reply>Ubuntu-Drupal is NOT Drupal. Drupal is an incredibly CMS (drupal.org). Ubuntu-Drupal is a set of extras to be used on top of Drupal (modules/theme) that helps you to deploy an Ubuntu related site very quickly. If you have any ideas for modules Added by Pici

nopti <reply> KPTI is a mitigation for the !Meltdown security issue. With some workloads on some processors, KPTI has a significant performance impact. KPTI can be disabled by adding "nopti" to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub. This should only be done if absolutely necessary because it will disable protections against Meltdown and thus allow any malicious user process to read memory and probably escalate to root.

night <reply> It's the middle of the night in the US and Europe, and surrounds.

Please be patient, and consider asking at a time when more people will be awake. This is particularly true in the quieter channels. Added by Hobbsee

nickfork-#ubuntu-offtopic a silly little game for offtopic channels ONLY. The way it works is you pick out a random nick from the /names list (works best if they're idle), have a bunch of people switch to something similar (scrambles, reverse, 1337speak), and see how long it takes for the real person to catch on. Have fun! Added by tonyyarusso

nice <reply> 'Nice' is a property of a process that determines how willing it is to give CPU time to other processes. A higher value makes it more likely to give away time. A negative value makes it less likely. Values are from -19 to 19, with 0 being the default. For more information, type 'man nice' at a terminal. Added by Seveas
