  4. [ubuntu] Re: Finally Divorcing Ubuntu - Which distro should i choose?

    The only other distro I used extensively was Mandriva, a couple of years ago. It had some nice features, mainly an extensive system control center (desktop-independent) that I still rather miss. I...

    Re: Who remembers the good ole days...

    Handled, yes; used, no. I had one from the old IBM System/36 where I used to work, which I stuck on the bulletin board in my cube as part of my "museum of data storage" display.

    Re: I feel somehow sorry for Opera

    You can disable javascript globally in Opera and then selectively enable it for sites that you want to grant permission. I've heard that's what noscript users who switch to Opera do, anyway.

    LOL, true. I once tried to copy one of those in my father's dual-deck tape player, figuring that since it was just audio that should work. The copy loaded partway, but wouldn't finish. Thus ended...

    Re: I feel somehow sorry for Opera

    I've found that Opera 9.5 really cooks on my machine (it's much faster than Firefox 3 and Thunderbird), so much so that I switched over to it for browsing, e-mail, and RSS. I still keep Firefox...

    Yeah, we used a hole punch for this. Sometimes you had to punch multiple times to make the notch big enough.

    Re: Why to love/hate C#

    I don't love C#, but as I work in a Microsoft shop, it's about the closest I can get to Java here. It's a pretty good Java knockoff, actually, and although there are a number of Java features that I...

    Re: Recommend a great movie thats not well known

    Three of my favorites right there. (The original cut of Donnie Darko is better than the director's cut in my opinion.)

    Check out A Shock to the System, one of my favorite black comedies.
