    Re: Installing Python in /dev/shm

    Sure. I don't fill the RAM anywhere near 50%.

    Is there a timeout for how long a program stays in RAM?

    Re: Installing Python in /dev/shm

    Hi Cheesemill - thank you. I thought this should be happening most of the time but sometimes I would swear that Python is being loaded from HDD. Often enough to make it noticeable.

    Installing Python in /dev/shm

    I have a program that needs to call python often. Now since python needs to be pulled from the hard-drive every time it's called, it slows things down, especially when the HDD is busy serving...

  7. [xubuntu] Asus eee 1011cx - getting the screen resolution right

    Recently I bought Asus eee 1011cx. It is a nice little netbook without a fan which I really like - it is very quiet and has a good battery life. Better yet, it can be purchased without Windows which...

    Re: Ideas how to make HP cooperate?

    Well I guess I owe you guys the happy-end.

    During the repair #3 HP replaced both CPU and motherboard. After 2 months I finally had a functioning computer. Alas, meantime I bought another PC from...

    Re: Ideas how to make HP cooperate?

    Hi Dngrstone... The HP case manager is like teflon. He said it cannot go any higher. He must be the CEO. I think I will buy another comp and when HP (one day perhaps) fixes this one I will get...

    Re: Ideas how to make HP cooperate?

    No, it is not booting. Just like before the fans spin but no bios, no boot, no nothing. Re-seating the cpu helps for about 3 days then again no boot. It is heading back to HP as soon as they send me...

    That is a true happy-end. I don't believe such things happen in 2012. I am getting the typical run-around. After I wrote a heart-breaking email to HP support, they replied:
