    Forum private message archiving software

    The Ubuntu forums allow you to store 500 private messages, but other vBulletin installations are more stingy. You can always download them as XML to make room on the server.

    Re: Ubuntu cannot compete with OS X or Windows 7

    Often the OS will ask again and do SIGKILL a few seconds after your SIGTERM didn't work. Otherwise just use the Activity Monitor from Utilities.

    Re: What can I achieve with Python?

    Two pieces of advice. Don't use huge libraries, like any of the GUI toolkits, as learning (to debug) those eats time like it was nothing. And do solve a problem you care about rather than some...

    [SOLVED] Re: Python/Quickly - Set text in a textbox

    You probably want the .get_text() and get_current_folder methods. Just look in the docs.

    [ubuntu] Re: Having trouble going back to Mac OS X

    He's only touching the last 10GB, and since it's ext4 without a swap partition, those are most likely a lost cause.

    [ubuntu] Re: Having trouble going back to Mac OS X

    Documentation like the web site doesn't matter, there has to be a message on screen. I'd ask in the non-Apple sections of this forum what might have gone wrong.

    [ubuntu] Re: Having trouble going back to Mac OS X

    I don't know parted nor the LiveCD graphical installer, but it looks like you ignored some warning and wiped your drive.

    Re: Google launches WebM video format with VP8 in it

    [x264 developers]



    OTOH now that VP8 is free the Theora developers freely admit that their product is worse than h.264, which used to be blasphemy. Not sure I'd trust them.

    Neither does KDE, but Qt at least has the potential. It's the applications that matter, not the desktop. The better the toolkit, the better the applications.

    No. Choosing and assembling computer parts is a pain in the *** and fiddling with operating systems a waste of time.
