    Poll: Re: AWN vs Cairo Dock?

    Docky for me. Always seems much more responsive and better looking too. The only downer is it is a little bit crashy at times.

    Poll: Re: Are you happy with your life?

    Cerebral Palsy is no barrier to anything. I knew a girl a few years back who had it and despite blindness in one eye, some deafness, etc she didn't let it get to her. She was also one of the coolest...
  4. Re: Billion-pixel image of the Milky Way's centre

    If aliens came here we'd really have to be nice to them. Making it to earth would suggest that technologically they were lightyears ahead of us and would pretty much own us. Believe me, until we...

    I'm happy. I'm starting a new challenge in a couple of weeks, teaching 4th graders English, Maths, Health, History, Geography, etc. It's a nice change from computing G4-12 which I'd done previously....

    Re: The Command which wipes the HDD

    It's the linux way to assume you know what you're doing. That's how I like it.
  7. Re: Ubuntu or Windows (Please, just an advice, no holy war)

    When I install Ubuntu for people I dual-boot them for this very reason. It means you get the best of both worlds. But, honestly, if Ubuntu's not for you, then use Windows. You can get Apache, PHP and...

    [ubuntu] Re: How To Provide Remote Assistance To XP User

    I've used VNC to do the remote control of Windows XP machines. The only pain is that the VNC server must be installed on the XP machine (which is a fairly easy and painless task).

    Re: Runnin' as Root....

    Most of the security issues on Windows are due to users running admin accounts by default. It's not a great idea, and sudo/gksudo can always get you what you need anyway.

    Re: ubuntu 9.10 beta released!!!

    Well it's lovely and fast, very responsive, but it's a bit crashy at this point in time, which worries me. Overall I've found the pre-release versions of Karmic to be much less stable than Jaunty or...
  20. Re: The opinion of one of my university lecturers.. :/

    Sounds like the guy's just uninformed. He's not tried anything other than MS stuff, and doesn't know better.

    Poll: Re: Are you looking forward to Gnome Shell?

    From what I've seen it looks very cool. It brings something new to the table that Mac and Windows don't have, and doing things in its own way. That's kinda important you know!
