    Re: How many of you love to touch type?

    I type by touch/muscle memory but don't touch type in the conventional sense. I use my left thumb for the space bar, left little finger for the shift key, right little finger for enter, and then...

    Went from Xubuntu 12.04 to something approximating to Xubuntu 12.10 that doesn't work. So I'm going to have to do a reinstall - hurrah....
  4. Re: Tiny Core vs. Puppy vs. Crunchbang - Which is the best lightweight Linux distro?

    I had Puppy Linux and Lubuntu running very nicely on an old Celeron 633/384MB RAM I had. Puppy was much quicker to boot and in general use, but felt somewhat old fashioned in its interface and for...

    Re: Good British Comedies?

    All those already mentioned! The Young Ones is great for some early 80s anarchy. Any of the Alan Partridge series are cracking too. Oh, and while I think, you might want to try Brass Eye, especially...

    Poll: Re: Do you still hibernate?

    Yes and no - it's always worked for me under Windows, so I tend to use it there, but it's always been unreliable for me under Linux, so I avoid using it there. I'd like to use it in Linux, but...

    Re: Handbooks or lack thereof !

    I'm with you! PDF manuals are great as a SUPPLEMENT to a decent hardcopy, but I still like to have something physical I can refer to when I buy a new piece of equipment.

    Re: ISP is Amazing! 1 Gbps upload and download

    50 is more than I'm prepared to spend on my ISP. I'm on the Virgin 60Mbps service at the moment (double speed due 6 months to a year), which does me fine, and I'm very lucky to be able to get that...

    Poll: Re: 12.10-What Will You Do?

    Upgrade, and if that doesn't work as expected then I'll go ahead with a manual reinstall. Can't say that I've ever had any problems with upgrading, though.

    Poll: Re: ThinkPad Owners Thread

    I picked up a bargain on a T61 recently - only 130 from ebay. It replaces an ageing 40 with a loose connection somewhere in its innards. I'm very pleased with it!

    Poll: Re: Do you use multiple workspaces?

    Funny - personally I find that workspaces help me to multitask by reducing the number of tasks I have going on in any one workspace. So if I am working (spreadsheets, documents, maybe a pdf or 2) I...
  13. Re: Old Desktop: Repurpose For New Use (Server, HTPC, etc) ?

    Another option is to repurpose your old computer by giving it a clean OS install and then giving it away to someone who will get regular use out of it. Or even selling it.
  14. Re: outside of north america, how do world maps look like?

    This is island-nation mentality. We say the same here in the UK of Europe. It's not that we don't consider ourselves European, just that the European landmass is viewed a little differently to our...

    Poll: Re: Is RSS dying?

    +1 to this.

    What's especially annoying for me is when providers of information (such as the BBC, which has a number of RSS feeds I subscribe to) provide only a summary of the content in the RSS...

    You could do worse than to spend a bit of time listening to BBC 6Music and see if anything played there takes your fancy - http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/
