    [SOLVED] Re: Git Help

    You can undo local changes to a single file with git checkout (e.g. git checkout .gitignore) or completely undo all changes (git reset --hard HEAD).

    Be careful with the latter, it will wipe out...
  2. Article: Choosing an OS is not a team sport.

    I came across this blog yesterday (link), and I think it makes some pretty good points.

    Keep in mind that if you go through his previous postings, you'll find this post, which is a satire, and you...

    Re: NAEV - 2D Space Combat / Trading Game

    I discovered the Lua API last night, and the console. Cheated myself some cash, but I still have trouble killing the biggest Empire cruisers even with a bunch of railgun turrets.

    I think I've run...

    Re: Best new graphics card for me?

    Seconding what Mike'sHardLinux said. 6200 LE/TC models are mostly discontinued, replaced simply by '6200'.

    The TC is rather odd - It uses up to 256MB of memory, but only 64MB of that is on the...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: What is the Best Way to Rip .WAV Files from CDs in Ubuntu?

    Sound Juicer is decent in that it uses cdparanoia, but Rubyripper's rips are of verifiably better quality, as it rips each track multiple times and checks for inconsistencies.

    I'd avoid K3b. It...

    Re: NAEV - 2D Space Combat / Trading Game

    Wow! This is too cool. I spent way too many afternoons playing Escape Velocity back when it came out.

    Spent about an hour playing so far; I died a lot, but I'm liking it. Seems to be a little...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: What is the Best Way to Rip .WAV Files from CDs in Ubuntu?

    You can't get an exact copy of the original audio off the CD, because it's not written as data, but as a stream. For the best results, you'll want to use something with error correction, such as...

    [ubuntu] Re: sudo rm -r /home// "oops"

    Nothing except the user's data is stored in the home directory. /etc/passwd and /etc/shadw are where the user credentials are stored.



    When deleting, files aren't actually erased. The inodes...

    Poll: Re: Arch vs Debian vs Gentoo vs Slack

    I only see two options in the poll, really.

    I use Arch on some of my desktops and it's great, but for a server, no thanks. Same goes for Gentoo.

    Both being cutting-edge and rolling release...

    Re: Best new graphics card for me?

    He said he can't afford a new system. Replacing the motherboard and CPU entails a new video card and RAM, because you're not going to find a worthwhile LGA775 motherboard that can use DDR with an AGP...

    [ubuntu] Re: New Laptop

    There really isn't that much choice if you want Linux pre-installed. I'd opt for a Windows laptop from a vendor that's willing to reimburse you for the unused license.

  12. [SOLVED] Re: OpenOffice spell check isn't working in Spanish

    From what I recall, this is a bit finnicky.

    In Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages, is the default Western language Spanish, with a checkmark next to it?
