    Re: help please!

    I could go through my bookmarks and paste a bunch in here but I think it would be better for you to look at the sticky threads where these have already been gathered. You will find lots of help on most all ubuntu related subjects. Surely enough to keep you busy for a good while.

    What is happening slowly? Please give as much detail as you can. Do you have any specifics on your hardware and your ubuntu version and configuration? How much disk space, memory, etc. As much as you know. Do you notice something specific that seems slow?

    Try to answer this and we'll see where to go from there.

    Re: help please!

    loading times etc. it just got a bit faster randomly actually.. maybe its because its 5 am and the machine has been on all day?
    hence why im running slow myself.
