  1. [ubuntu] Re: Junkyard Joy: help me set up a media center and file server!

    Agreed, <3 gnome. What theme are you using? My favourites are by a guy on gnome-look called Lyrae, everything he designs is stunning. Give it a look.

    I found this article which is incredibly...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Junkyard Joy: help me set up a media center and file server!

    hey Joe, thanks for the reply. I found the computer at the doorstep of my apartment block with a sticker boasting "it works!". Another guy was already eyeballing when I got there so I just whizzed...
  3. [ubuntu] Junkyard Joy: help me set up a media center and file server!

    Hey all. I recently picked up a surprisingly good computer off the streets. specs: 3ghz P4, 1gb ram, 200gb HD, 6xusb2.0, 2xfirewire, svideo and composite video out, two(!) DVD drives, digital audio...

    Hey there. Sorry about the lack of interest on my part, I completely forgot I had started this thread. If anybody needs to reach me, my email is in my profile and is checked daily, so send me an...

    [ubuntu] Re: Intrepid Sound Solutions

    Saved this tutorial somewhere I'll never lose it.

    Thanks very much.
  7. Re: What is the worst/dumbest computer mistakes you have ever done?

    I have a few, but I'll tell you my very first one:

    My dad worked in IT and at work he had got hold of some games and put them on floppies for me. I must have been 6 or 7 (pacman addict since the...

    Re: I think my ISP may be trying it on.

    Call your ISP and ask them..?
  9. Re: I think I might move somewhere where they haven't invented electricity yet...

    It seems you have accepted your fate as inevitable. I'm still fighting (or deluding myself, some might say).
  10. Re: Which OS do you spend more time fixing? Windows or Ubuntu?

    Ubuntu. But it's entirely my fault - Every few months I tend to do something that destroys the system beyond repair and demands a reinstall.

    But if I were to just get it how I like it and leave...
  11. Re: My XP faster than Ubuntu...not for long though

    Sorry, but saying ubuntu doesn't need to be tweaked is absurd. Sure, it sometimes works out of the box.. but the most common thing is to have to dig around and get the wifi working. Even after it's...
  12. Re: I think I might move somewhere where they haven't invented electricity yet...

    Bah. It's not hard to live a spartan/bubble life even in a big city - just sell your TV and computer.

    But I like to believe it's possible to use these things in moderation. Computers have the...

    Re: Do college students use Linux?

    I'm in liberal arts but I spent a year in dorms and plenty of people were screwing around with linux. All of them really casually though.
  14. Re: Can anyone think of a way to get Ubuntu/Linux more mainstream?

    Nobody likes a linux preacher. Besides, when they break something guess who's gonna get called to fix it?

    Re: KDE 4.2 Released

    I might consider using KDE if it were possible to make it look halfway decent. No matter what I do I can't seem to shake that tacky-futuristic look it has going.

    No intention of turning this into...

    Re: Laptop shopping

    Not sure where you are, but here in spain Compaq has some nice cheap laptops that run ubuntu fine. It's the CQ60 range- check'em out.

    Only flaw i've found is DPC latency spikes when running XP -...

    Yes, that sums it up nicely...
  18. Re: Can anyone think of a way to get Ubuntu/Linux more mainstream?

    Nobody commenting on this? Personally if tomorrow ubuntu became the world's 1 OS I would go running to something more underground. In fact, in some circles ubuntu is already considered the "easy",...

    Guys, this is open source. It's not dead, just changing hands.

    Relax.
  21. Re: What are we saying about browsers? Firefox all the way?

    Firefox is painfully slow and bloated (no browser should use 100mb ram for just a couple of tabs) but functionality/looks wise I haven't been able to find a substitute which I like enough to use...
