buu and suspend
Earlier this week I did a fresh reinstall of Ubuntu Edgy Eft on my lenovo T60 to see if some suspend issues I had had with the dist-upgraded one would go away - those issues only did go away after pursuing information on ThinkWiki, that told me to set POST_VIDEO= in /etc/default/acpi-support (the real issue is in the ATI driver.).
Another intervention on top of the default install that I need is a way to use my mobile phone as a modem with my flatrate GPRS/3G subscription. Since NetWork manager doesn't support this yet, I made a small shell script buu which maintains my uplink when running in a terminal.
