Intel Video Drivers & Xorg Resolution Guide (Ubuntu 10.04) [H67 Chipset Sandy Bridge]

Native Resolution Support Ubuntu?
I had all sorts of problems trying to get my Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid installation to use the correct resolution on my widescreen monitor. My native resolution didn't even show up in the display settings, and my monitor couldn't be detected. It was shown as unknown. After following countless guides, I couldn't get it to detect my monitor or use its native resolution. I installed intel drivers, but after installing them, they were not being used by Xorg. I think it's because my system uses Sandy Bridge hardware, and as such, there are a few bugs in Ubuntu 10.04. After spending 8+ hours, I got it to work.
This guide should work for motherboards using integrated intel video with the H67 chipset (sandy bridge)
My system specs just in case it is hardware related:

These commands will be useful to you all the time, without knowledge of them most task via a terminal will be impossible.
There are 2 ways to get help on command while in the terminal
man <COMMAND> (man top)<COMMAND> --help (top --help)
bash is actually a shell, another shell is ksh, the shell effects the way some keys and shortcuts work.
Most modern systems default the shell to bash.

Problems with "Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide v0.5e"

I had good sound until recently. Then it just disappeared. I've tried the various methods in "Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide v0.5e" several times without any success. I get many error messages. Here they are.

$50 guide for installing linux on windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 23, 2009
I own the domain names linuxonwindows.com and windowsonlinux.com
I am looking for someone who can put together a guide for the first site which use seamless virtualbox. I am thinking lots of screenshots, hand-holding text for linux noobs.
I'll handle the design for the sites - I just need the content. If you are interested in putting this together I'll happily send you some beer-tokens via paypal.
Similarly, if anyone wants to do the windows on linux text, there is another $50 for that.
I hope this is of interest to someone here. PM if you want to hear more or if you are ready to go.
User Guide confusion
location: linux.com - date: May 21, 2009
I've gotten through one user's guide that was useless. I've found a rather good one that I can understand.
As an exercise of the book I'm going thru man pages and I'm in "find" this is part of the man explanation :find -size [[+|-]]<size>
I understand that <> anything there is replaced with what is needed to operate, also that the square brackets normally do the same however they have brackets inside brackets? I think I understand the + and - what they are looking for but why the "pipe"?
Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 & Lucid installation guide ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 29, 2010
- pretty much an absolute beginner -
I would like to install my Logitech Webcam / Quickcam Pro 9000 on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
I googled around a bit and mostly found older websites and nothing really up to date and helpful.
When I plug in the webcam into my Laptop running Lucid, nothing happens.
I stumbled across the term "uvcvideo", which I searched for on my machine (it was found) and on google. This is what I found on google:
Still, I'm not sure if this is the right way for Lucid, though the webcam is listed as fully supported...
Does anyone have any helpful thoughts on this?
Thank you !!!

Beginners Guide to GnuPG

A Beginner's Guide to GnuPG
I am going to give a basic run down of how to use GnuPG to encrypt files, sign your messages, read encrypted messages from your friends and whatnot, along with some of useful commands and applications you can use in aiding you along the way
First off, incase you don't understand completely (which is absolutely fine, as we are not expected to know everything), GPG is a key-based encryption method. You will be given a public key and a private key. The private key, as indicated, should remain private as to keep the entire idea of encryption secure.
A person who holds your public key and wishes to send you an encrypted message, would encrypt the message with your public key. They can not decrypt their own message after they encrypt it. Only you, who holds the private key can decrypt the message.
There are two different GUI based applications which can assist you in setting up a GPG ke
