Some links on creating bootable USB sticks from ISO media (for a Linux rescue CD)

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/05

These did help me a lot:

In the end: UNetBootin with the knoppix image worked fine. Alt Linux Rescue failed (it copied fine, but it had a kernel panic upon boot).

Downloads I tried:


  • fdisk -l | grep sd
  • smartctl -a /dev/

Word for Windows Keyboard Shortcut for Find Next – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/05

Unlike most applications where F3 is search next, Office has their own thought about keyboard shortcuts.

So in Word for Windows, you can use these:

  • Find next:
    • “RepeatFind”: Shift+F4 or Ctrl+Alt+Y.
    • “Browse next item”:  Control+PageDown.
  • Find previous:
    • “Browse previous item”: Control+PageUp.
