  2. [ubuntu] Re: Fglrx freezing laptop when power not plugged in

    I can confirm the freeze/crash on boot when running on battery. The initial purple screen comes up, but then nothing and the computer either stays frozen or reboots itself.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for fixing the font color problem in DarkRoom? Because I can't get the text in programs to not be off-white on a white background even if I switch to other themes or...

    [all variants] Party Shuffle in Ubuntu

    I used iTunes a few weeks ago and despite all the things I remembered hating about it, I did like the party shuffle function. Specifically the ability to essentially hit "random" and yet see what was...

    [ubuntu] Re: Rockbox utility

    Don't you just have to copy over the .rockbox directory currently on your iPod with the latest Rockbox build? Download, unzip, copy. That's all I ever had to do to get the latest firmware. No...
  10. Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    Thanks. I thought that might be the case, but I wasn't sure if the code grabbed the current game or just the most recent. That's good to know.
  11. Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    Does anyone have a link to a teams-to-code translator or key? I'm trying to get the Houston Astros to work, but no luck. "Texas" pulls up the Rangers and "Houston" grabs nothing. This is really neat...

    I think it's

    My in-house wireless doesn't work (avoid Linksys WRT54Gs. They bite) so I don't know if that code works properly or not. You might have to change the...

    Now it's working. And yes, I was muddling my terminology.

    Re: HOWTO: Terminal as the desktop background.

    This stopped working for me once I upgraded to Gutsy. Worked fine in Feisty. Now I can't control where the terminal goes. No matter what geometry I input, the terminal's always locked to the upper...

    Re: No-nonsense guide to iPod video: h264 and xvid

    No, the source has them. It's a 4:3 movie from one of those cheap-o 50-Movie Packs. There's actually the movie in widescreen, a dark black outline around that and a slightly less dark outline filling...

    That's the odd part. I tried encoding with no cropping at all. I set the resize to 320x240 and came out with a file that had removed all the surrounding black and stretched the remaining image into...
