    Re: How to install Amazon MP3 app on 10.04

    I've been calling, and complaining, and threatening to cancel my Amazon Prime membership. They will not be releasing an updated client any time soon. It's been at least 18 months, with jack all to...

    Re: How to install Amazon MP3 app on 10.04

    This is still really clunky, and it doesn't work on Debian Squeeze. However, there's a simple alternative:

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to enumerate USB devices during boot

    This is counterintuitive (meaning I don't know *why* this works) but unplugging the power cable to the Ubuntu machine for 5-10 minutes solved it for me.

    Re: Netflix streaming on Linux?!

    Amazon's selection is meager compared to Netflix, and many titles are $1.99 (or $2.99 for HD) for instant download, even if you have Amazon Prime (like I have had for years). I have already...

    I've tried this, but still tzdata-java is depending on the old tzdata version (2010l-1). Seems like an upgrade went nuts, or at least the current version of tzdata-java depends on the old version of...

    This is exactly the behavior I saw when I first tried to connect to Netflix with my Ubuntu HTPC. Even if you could grab the UA from the Linux-based units, the DRM stack still ain't there. This will...

    [ubuntu] Re: Best PDF editor for Ubuntu

    Mendeley is overkill for this. It's like using PowerPoint or Impress as a paint program. Sure, it can do the job, but the specific purpose of Mendeley is well beyond the scope of this user's...

    I filed a bug with Microsoft regarding this, since it's an OS level bug in Win7. I had no problems dual-booting with XP, so you should probably file this under a different forum post.
