  1. [kubuntu] Re: Kubuntu 10.04 x86_64 LiveCD (and apparently others) won't boot on Dell XPS 630i

    Sorry to leave you hanging. I sincerely hope you were able to find a solution elsewhere. While I am here I will mention what I did to work around this issue (which hasn't been present for a couple...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Where are your music files kept in your ipod?

    When I used an iPod the files were always stored in //iPod_Control/Music/Fnn/ -- where "nn" are two numerical digits.

    I'm pretty sure the files must be in this obfuscated file structure and...

    Thanks for all of the useful information. I successfully built my own util-linux with ddate enabled. Hopefully this gets fixed in Ubuntu's repositories soon.

    [ubuntu] Re: installing a virtual PC

    Virtualbox should do everything you need. You need to create a virtual drive then install an operating system on it.

    [SOLVED] Re: ddate is missing

    Thanks for the reply! Yes, I knew that there had been some attempts to remove it in the past.

    Do you think a bug report would do any good or is its absence intentional by Ubuntu?

    [SOLVED] ddate is missing

    After upgrading to 12.04 I find that ddate is missing. Searching for ddate on launchpad doesn't return anything, though the string is apparently mentioned in i3status.

    Anybody have a clue on what...
  8. Re: Collapse of physics, quantum mechanics not reconcilable with general relativity

    They don't contradict each other as much as they are simply incompatible. Performing canonical quantization (or any other quantization procedure as far as I know) breaks the GR equations.

    If you...
  9. Re: Collapse of physics, quantum mechanics not reconcilable with general relativity

    Sure, CERN could provide some new discoveries. Running experiments is how we actually advance the science. There have been some hints of a new particle (maybe the Higgs) at the LHC and the Tevatron...
  10. Re: Collapse of physics, quantum mechanics not reconcilable with general relativity

    Neither QM or GR are true in any sort of ontological sense. They are both successful theories in the sense that both have been used to successfully describe a wide range of phenomena. They simply...

    What a statement on human nature! :lolflag:
  12. Re: Collapse of physics, quantum mechanics not reconcilable with general relativity

    I thought this was about QM vs GR. Why are people talking about dark matter?
  13. Re: Collapse of physics, quantum mechanics not reconcilable with general relativity

    I just saw this topic and haven't read the whole thing yet. However, nothing in your post should be surprising. Nothing in science is fully understood. Nature doesn't operate according to science....

    Usually a player getting mounted as read-only is an indication of a damaged file system.

    Re: PyMOL symmetry operations/axes?

    I haven't used either of these, but I did pop over to the cctbx site and saw that they only have pre-built packages for Fedora/CentOS/RedHat, OSX and Windows.

  18. [SOLVED] Re: converting flac files to mp3 results in 0.047 seconds silence in beginning

    MP3 isn't natively gapless. You have to tell LAME to write header information for specific sequence of files. Maybe you are seeing something related to that. I don't see any --nogap/--nogaptags...

    Can your monitor even reproduce that? I don't think the pixel spacing on most monitors comes very close to that.

    If you google for "jailbreak PS3" you can find numerous guides on how to do it. I'm pretty sure this is permissible discussion in the forums. Jailbreaking isn't illegal in the USA or Europe, so it...
