When I try to patch an application using Secunia PSI, I get this error: “Downloaded file has incorrect SHA1sum." Why?

The file being provided by the software vendor does not match the file identifier that Secunia PSI has on record. This type of error should eventually resolve itself, though that may take some time. In most situations it is simpler to go to the software vendor's website and download the most recent version they have available and manually install that version.

Queue: How do I create a link to the "new ticket" page with some fields already filled out?

Some IT groups on campus have created a page with several "new ticket" links that load up the "new ticket" page in RT with many fields already filled out.

For example, I could create a link that automatically sets the Subject, AdminCc, and Issue Type fields by specifying those fields, and whatever values I want for those fields, in a URL.  The following link sets the "Subject" to "OS Issue", the "AdminCc" to "", and the "Issue Type" custom field to "OS":

Determining the field name is fairly straightforward for some fields (e.g. Subject, Cc, AdminCc, Status), but for custom fields it requires a little more work.  To figure out what name to use for custom fields, view the HTML source of the "new ticket" page for your queue and then find the "name" value of the form field (e.g. "Issue Type") that you would like to use.  An HTML source viewing tool, such as Firebug for Firefox, helps immensely with this.

I found the "Issue Type" name of "Object-RT::Ticket--CustomField-19-Values" by looking up the HTML for that form field.

AAA makes use of these types of URLs for one of their pages:

How do I insert a document, PDF, or PowerPoint into my post?

You can upload documents, PDFs, of PowerPoints directly to your blog posts. This does not embed the file into your posts; it inserts a link to the file. When readers click on the link to the file, the file will either open up in another web browser or download the file to their computer.

For instructions on how to insert documents, PDFs, or PowerPoints into your posts, see Inserting Documents, PDF and PowerPoint into your Posts.
