  1. Re: Since credit cards existed before 1969, doesn't that mean so did Internet?

    Nope, phone lines are routed through various centrals, analog switches, cabling, etc... along the way, sometimes even over the Internet depending on your destination. It's not really point A to point...
  2. Re: Since credit cards existed before 1969, doesn't that mean so did Internet?

    Hate it to rain down on your parade... but fax or phone is about as secure as e-mail. For credit card information, neither fax, phone or e-mail cuts it. Use SSL / encryption.

    Just sayin'.
  3. Re: When I first started using Linux ____ didn't work. Now it does.

    I completely agree with you.

    The first time I tried Linux on my previous laptop it would not even boot. Later, everything, _everything_ just worked out of the box.

    All the pieces I need are there, I am just developing ways to install/configure them in a way that makes my life easier.



    Yes, it is a roadblock. Then again, I have yet to...
  6. Re: My friend just got Ubuntu (ARM) running on iPad

    On embedded devices, GRUB is usually not used, or very very rarely.
  7. Re: No offense, but is the "full Ubuntu entreprise" really viable?

    From my personal experience, Ubuntu is not lacking in any of these features. I myself have been researching and developing in those areas for the past two years, however, my actual job does not allow...
  8. Re: /?\ Laptops don't have electrical grounding????

    Laptops / Computers internally run at ~12 Volts DC (+12V wires), so there is no chance of getting electrocuted on that.

    However, their power supplies convert 90-250 V AC to 12/14 V DC, so those...

    Re: Am I the only person who hates gnome-panel?

    Well, according to the release notes of Gnome 2.30 (Lucid's version) this should be solved. In 2.28 ( Karmic's version) they solved other problems related to moving icons as well and for me it did...

    [all variants] Re: Modern Central User Management Approach

    There is no "best practices". It varies with what you want to do.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Help about LTSP: Can I have "thin clients" outside my current network?

    Well, there are actually two parts in an LTSP setup. The first part is where the server hands the thin client machine a minimal image to boot. This is usually done via network boot.

    Once the...

    Yep, it is.

    I have a PSC 1110 and it works nicely as a printer and network scanner.
