  2. Re: What is the story / meaning behind your screen name and avatar?

    My avatar is a floppy old hat. My name's because floppies are old and almost obsolete, just like me.

    While I haven't read them, I have looked through these books in a bookstore.

    Re: Demudi: Linux for musicians?

    I too wish there was more emphasis on music production in Linux. I use a laptop with Win98SE on it for mine. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a usable distro, but I must admit I've only searched...

    Re: Your stupid, embarassing or mundane hobbies.

    I build walls, stairs, and walks with stone, compose music on keyboards, and collect Roy Rogers movies. Oh, and I make stained glass windows, too. I used to do a good bit of backpacking, been a while...

    Re: ruby vs python !!!

    wtd,
    I believe he was illustrating a point about syntax, not suggesting actual code to try.

    That's scary. I mean, just what comes along and rips out a happily-hopping stuffed bunny's guts?

    Have to say he seemed to like it! I can't wait to see the final release myself.

    Re: Experienced MS-Windows users and attitudes

    Oh, come on now. You can't be serious. Of the literally millions upon millions of Windows users in the world, you want to characterize all of them by what die-hard fanatics on some forums think?

    Re: HOWTO pages and the Wiki

    Strickly from a newbie's point of view, I think this is a wonderful idea. Having a followup link back to the forums would've saved me a lot of time.

    Re: Recommendations for paid support?

    It not only sounds odd, it is odd. And it's more than 3 machines I've had trouble with. The only thing they have in common is that they are all Asus motherboards. None of them are the same model.

    I hope you haven't given up on it! I do believe, despite all the problems I've had, that Ubuntu will be the premiere distro for the desktop. It'd be good to have a local group.

    Paid IRC would be a nice way to go. I haven't had any luck there connecting with anyone who could help. I just don't have the time to hang out waiting.
