  1. Re: Did the guy who made the default Ubuntu wallpapers in 2008 die or something?

    Moderators on crack?

    Apparantly this is the appropriate place to post if you think that the moderators are on crack. Seriously, I've had warnings for stuff that really isn't even vaguely worth such a thing, and arseholes...

    Re: Valve confirms Steam on Mac

    Probably less mac-native stuff than you think. It won't use the standard mac GUI stuff for instance, as it's running full-screen. It'll just be using opengl for graphics and whatever the mac uses for...

    Re: What is USENET

    I used to play with it back in the day. It used to be that your ISP would provide you with a server to access it and you'd have access via Outlook Express (yes I was a windows user) or whatever...

    Re: Debian Testing

    Yeah that's what I was trying to do but I've only got a lenny cd lying around and crappy slow internet (this is Thailand). Btw some people might want to look at Sidux. Debian Sid tamed.

    Re: Debian Testing

    I'm just testing it out on a vm at the moment and I'm actually pretty impressed. Having older grub and gdm is positive, I need to upgrade gnome to 2.28 as 2.22 is horrible, but my internet's slow and...

    Re: I know its late but, kill nautilus!

    Nautilus is slow, but it's awesome. Much better than explorer, though I gotta admit Dolphin gives it a good run for its money.

    So I downloaded the .33 drivers from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.33/ but it seems not to be working in terms of 3D. Maybe I'll have to wait for further updates to xorg-edgers.
