Fix Ubuntu Apt error “public key is not available” GPG Keys

If you’ve ever used the a package or repository from the Ubuntu Personal Pakacge Archive, you may have receive an error when each time you use apt-get. The error looks something like this.

W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY D8D75E403EBCE749

 

It’s a simple one line fix, the one line fetches the GPG key for the repository from keyserver.ubuntu.com:

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys D8D75E403EBCE749

Once you’ve run this command, apt-get will no longer report errors with finding the correct GPG public key.

Auto Bounced Messages Management vBulletin Module Helps Purge Bad Email Address On Your Forum

I was browsing through my mail spool on my machine, and I noticed that there were some messages in one of my accounts for a vBulletin forum. After further review, it was some bounce backs that had accumulated from users that didn't have a valid email address. I then started to do some Google searches for a vBulletin module (vBulletin's search is horrendous and practically useless) and found this module.
