identify <reply> You can identify to NickServ automatically when connecting to freenode. See https://freenode.net…nswer/sasl for more information. When identifying manually, do NOT send the command from a channel's tab, as a typo will give away your password. If that happens, identify and then type « /msg NickServ set password <new-password> » in the server tab as soon as possible. LjL

addingfs <reply>If you are adding space to your Ubuntu installation mounting a newly created unix filesystem (ext3, xfs, jfs, etc) you can not set permissions (read, write, etc) filesystem-wide like you do when mounting filesystems that do not support unix permissions (vfat, ntfs, hfs, etc). See !permissions and !fstab jrib

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! tonyyarusso
