TightVNC selection sharing

With RealVNC you use vncconfig, but according to this post by a guy named Thomas, this is what you'll put in your xstartup for tightvnc:

autocutsel -s PRIMARY -fork

Thanks, Thomas from the Internets!

Reverting iTunes to 10.6.3 -- yes, you can!!

Do you hate iTunes 11 as much as I do? Are you so angry with Apple that you're ready to throw your Mac through a window? Please, open the window first and make sure there is nobody on the ground below.

OR... (better yet, DON'T INSTALL ITUNES 11!! -- I hope somebody reads this before it's too late)

Ahhhhhhhhhh! (that's the choir of angels sound)

I switched to tightvncserver hoping that my vnc crashing will go away ::fingers crossed::

ImportError: No module named mymodule
