And.. The second installment of the bounty hunt. I was away most of the time, but I'm sure someone else remembered this ;).

The ground rules are the same as last month, and yes, I still want suggestions on what would be worthy candidates for a bounty hunt.

Post the questions you think should get the bounty and why

A few ground rules in place to avoid drama... I'll post these every monthly bounty hunt, and change these as needed.

I'd like to avoid self answers - if you can answer the question, you should do it without a bounty to encourage you.

You can recommend any question, not just your own.

Selection of a question is at my discretion. I'll be awarding a minimum of 50 rep per month. If i can't find anything i like, that 50 rep gets rolled over to the next month. I may pick more questions or give more rep to an answer if i choose to. I suppose my offered bounty tab may be a guideline, but I don't ONLY do hardware questions

Questions should be bountiable, and should be worth bountying. This means older questions with no answers, or ones where i can be convinced a bounty will get a quality answer. I'd like stuff that could do with a good, canonical answer.

I'll check back at this post - I'll pick the first question around the Last week of august or the first week of september, and pick one to give a bounty for. I reserve the right to edit the post if I made any silly errors like i did last month ;).

Change Linux Console's Default Monitor

I have a laptop with an external monitor, and the laptop's native screen doesn't usually face me. When I do CtrlAlt1, the console displays on the laptop screen. ****sigh**** Now I gotta get out of my seat...

Surely I'm not the only one bothered by situations like this.

    actually.. I like this one. – Journeyman Geek Aug 31 '12 at 1:23
  • Oh, I don't have a suitable system to test this, so if you could help me test the answers given, it would be easier for me to decide who to give the bounty to. – Journeyman Geek Sep 2 '12 at 0:50

Is there a chat log archiver that can import logs from multiple clients?

Chat Log Converter+, the only chat log converter in the world (as far as I found), ceased to exist. I've been searching for a new solution ever since... even before the question was asked.

A chat log converter is an important step to personal data management. Since chat clients are specialized (Facebook Chat, Google Talk, Skype, Windows Live Messenger, etc.), a chat log converter would be very useful for furthering development of managing logs.

From there, software can be written to search and manipulate chat logs.


This question is worth putting a bounty on because somebody might have something (development work, software, scripts) that I don't. I've been searching for a long time.

How can I send a message to my cellphone when someone logs onto my computer?

Ok, while I answered this, a better, less.. hackish solution would be nice. (and no, this might not be the question I pick. Just popped it in here cause I might forget ;p)
