    Sorry for being OT:

    This is from one of the earliest XTs. It had the riser 8bit card with the 8088 on it. The microchips from Brazil are rare. They were contracted by Texas Instruments.

    You have a lot of interesting hw there eh? Although there are manufacturing plants from vendors like Samsung, LG, Dell, Lenovo, Philips, HP, etc and (more commonly) Contract Manufacturers (like Foxconn, Flextronics, etc) manufacturing for Seagate, Western Digital, Sony, and all other IT brands here I believe most chips are imported from China nowadays... No one can compete with their prices.

    Pretty well, that is correct. Old hardware can be put to good use. Theoretically, a semiconductor has an infinite lifespan. It's good to know where our PC histories came from. !

    That is if you are just considering the lower 48 states. If you live in Alaska of the USA, then a good number of Canadians would be south of the USA. My Canadian friend tells me most Canadians live just past the border.

    It must be a slow day. At first I thought it was a new Unity version like GNUbuntu, a GNUnity or something. lol.

    It won't be backported to 12.04, as it would require a bunch of packages to be updated and it would break UI freeze.

    I just thought of something very easy to implement, which has the potential to solve the problems partially.

    When we search the Dash for something, the results (Books, Videos, CD covers) images (the thumbnails) are a separate part of the process.

    If you add a checkbox in config/privacy:
    [X] Show media thumbnails in the Dash search results.

    - When checked it shows the media thumbnails.
    - When not checked, it shows a CD/Video/Book icon.

    I was too lazy to go further (Friday night and I'm tired). But replacing the thumbnails is totally doable. I used the "blank sheet of paper" icon.

    That way, traffic is still generated by us so companies still get their money, users can choose to allow visual intrusion or not in their Dash, there's no need to ask ordinary users to uninstall packages.

    Effenberg
