Post-Nano Computing

ETA, 05 Nov 2008: 59 weeks since my last post, about 100 since I've been filling this journal regularly. This has to be my personal record for "BRB". Hey, it's a new America, what better day for me to come back? ;-)

Day by day we pray and pray: computer problems, go away!

Can anyone recommend:

  • a way to find where in GMail the unread messages are? (i.e., sort by read status)

  • software for maintaining /etc/passwd and home directories automatically, so that if a UID changes, things don't automatically go out of kilter?

  • a nightly incremental backup system, preferably free software? (Windows, Linux, or both, please)

Danke schoen,
