  6. [ubuntu] Re: "Software Up to Date" says "Not all updates can be installed"...

    Ubuntu Software Center won't even run. The icon blinks for a few seconds, then nothing.

    I tried removing ia32-libs... no help.
  7. [ubuntu] Re: "Software Up to Date" says "Not all updates can be installed"...

    Thanks... but, that didn't work.

    I should add that there's a little arrow-in-sun icon in the menu bar that, when I click on it, says "Error: BrokenCount > 0". This is another place where it tells...

  12. [SOLVED] Re: What is a good place to learn how to program?

    That's not what he was talking about. He was just making an analogy.

    [SOLVED] Re: Why is GMP not working on this code?

  15. [SOLVED] Re: What is a good place to learn how to program?

    Yes. I mean, sure, that's what I did, but that was decades ago. BASIC is mostly obsolete today. Python is beginner-friendly, while being powerful enough to take you as far as you like. All that...
