    Re: technology has its limits

    I think technology does have a sense of humor, albeit a very dry one. Haven't you ever tried to start you car for hours and it won't start then someone else turns the key and it starts right up. Darn...

    Re: Converting people to Ubuntu

    Yeah, I agree with you. And even if people do find out about Ubuntu they are persuaded to not get it or made to believe it is less of an operating system and not capable of doing much at all. Case in...

    That wouldn't be using force, that would be using "The Force".

    Post you xorg.conf file, then we will be able to see whats happening. try a before and after then we can see what changes there are.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: NVidia resets to low res on reboot !! HELP !!

    did you confirm that it changed your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and the resolution you want is present before and after shutdown?

    Never mind, Technical difficulty in the link you provided, when I clicked on it came up server not found but it has been resolved.

    I'd say it's more like technology can do anything within the limits of what you can imagine.

    Re: technology has its limits

    But we exceed those limits all the time. And time will go on and technology will grow. So where really is the limit? I will never know in my lifetime.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: NVidia resets to low res on reboot !! HELP !!

    Ok, here is what I found and it worked for me perfectly.
  14. [ubuntu] Re: NVidia resets to low res on reboot !! HELP !!

    Ok, I just look at my xorg.conf and this time it is "nvidia" I guess this installation I didn't have to edit that. I will try to adjust mine and see if mine saves.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: NVidia resets to low res on reboot !! HELP !!

    What worked for me was putting "nv" in Xorg.conf instead of "nvidia". But that was for 8.04 and 8.10 I believe

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't View Some website

    Ok, I guess i'm confused. Let me get this straight.

    You have one internet connection.
    You are using a switch to split the internet connection.
    You have no router.
    Is this correct so far.

    So are you trying to split the connection? I don't think that is possible that way.
