    [ubuntu] Re: Watch Hulu from outside the US.

    I am also interested in this question. I just moved to Hungary (from NYC) and even Hotspot Shield won't work because Hulu recognizes this as a proxy. I've heard of things such as Strong VPN etc.. but...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: anyone switch fully from mac os x to ubuntu?

    On the contrary, I was using Ubuntu for about 3+ years and recently bought a Macbook Pro. I honestly never thought that I would appreciate not having to tinker with an OS, as I was doing with Ubuntu...

  4. [ubuntu] Constant "routine check of HD" and other quirky behavior

    I'm at a loss for what to think or do. For the past couple of months, no matter when or how often I boot my Ubuntu box, (all new hardware including Mobo and HD) halfway through booting up, the ...
  5. [ubuntu] Time Warner NYC binary groups. No more ?

    As the title asks, I'm wondering if Time Warner (in NYC) decided stop their news-server feeds ? I ask because I recently decided to use PAN again, with the server address of news-server.nyc.rr.com...

    [xubuntu] Re: severe problems backing up DVDs

    OMG.. forget almost everything suggested, with no offense to those who tried to help. I say this because every piece of software written for Linux has been far from good for archiving my DVD's. The...

    Poll: Re: What Anti-virus do you use?

    Nutin. When I was using Windows (4 years ago?) I might have run AVG, but found it to be kind of a waste of space. I knew that some of the sites I was visiting were the cause of a lot of spyware and...

    Re: Lossless Audio Formats: Are They Worth It?

    I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's pointless. Hardly actually. Those reports of blind or double blind tests where people say they can't hear the difference between 128kbps files and 320kbps...

    Re: Lossless Audio Formats: Are They Worth It?

    There's some very good reasons to keep lossless compressed formats around, other than for listening. Archiving files in order to preserve those precious MoFi CD's or even doing back ups of vinyl is...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Nvidia XFX GeForce 8600 GT for $40 after rebate from Dell

    Cool. Just bought it. Total = $72.05 w/shipping. And Dell will hopefully honor the rebate for $20. Thanks !

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Nvidia XFX GeForce 8600 GT for $40 after rebate from Dell

    Actually, it's more like $52 because of shipping etc.. And, does it matter that it's a third party vendor (XFX) vs the Nvidia brand name ?
  13. [ubuntu] Nvidia XFX GeForce 8600 GT for $40 after rebate from Dell

    This seems to be a great deal, but was wondering if this card has proven to work well with Ubuntu (Gnome desktop) ? It's likely better than the on board ATI chip I"m using now, but just want to know...
  14. [all variants] Re: Windows Live Hotmail not supported for Linux

    I used an Hotmail account for spam/junk and forum, account sign up stuff. However, I just closed the account and sent them a very informative feedback letter. They're services are NOT needed, period.

    Has anybody Dug this yet ? This info needs to be publicized in order to expose MS for being the pricks they really are. Where else should this be posted ?
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Should I change from KDE to Gnome

    [ubuntu] Re: how to burn playable dvd's?

    This is easy as humble pie. If you're using Gnome, just right click on an ISO file and choose "burn to disc".

    Yes, it's that easy.

    I back up my DVD's using DVD Shrink (under WINE) because it...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Corrupt Grub files, need help w/Super Grub

    This has to be a hardware issue. 7.10 installed just fine, so I decided to try 8.04

    When I reboot, the DVD drive didn't even spin up, and the BIOS had not detected anything except for the hard...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Corrupt Grub files, need help w/Super Grub

    I'm starting to think that my DVD drive is at fault. I've tried so many things, and now I've inserted a random 7.10 disc (*which I had tried before) and it is booting, so wish me luck w/the install
