    [kubuntu] Re: Dual-booting Kubuntu on HP G62-144DX

    I'm sorry for bumping this, but I can't find any useful information on the Internet. Also, the same thing happens with the new 10.04 RC.

    [kubuntu] Dual-booting Kubuntu on HP G62-144DX

    I'm attempting to dual-boot Kubuntu on a friend's brand new HP G62-144DX laptop (he's been using Kubuntu for a while on his desktop and laptop). After dealing with all the stupid vendor-specific...

    Re: Post your website here! :)

    http://www.leafstorm.us/. It's just something really simple. I put it together using nanoc3 - you can read more about that in the Colophon section. I also have a blog powered by Zine. It doesn't have...

    Re: Custom Live CD creators

    Thanks for the recommendations, guys, but the reason I made the post is because none of the existing options that I knew about were working for me. (I have actually used UCK and Reconstructor 2...

    Custom Live CD creators

    Recently, I made a Fedora spin for my dad so he wouldn't have to borrow my Live CDs when he needed to check why someone's computer isn't working. I wanted to make him an Xubuntu-based CD, since he's...
  6. Re: Idea for handling encodings in a programming language

    I probably should have elaborated that there would be an encoding comment like in Python. Also, I didn't think about non-ASCII characters in bytestrings - the idea behind bytestring literals was that...
  7. Idea for handling encodings in a programming language

    I've been designing a language named Wolf in my head for a while, and what with the big deal everyone's been making about character encodings due to the Python 2/3 switch, I think I came up with a...

    Idea: Shelf, a package manager for books

    There's a bunch of nice "open source" (CC, GFDL, etc.) books out there, like Dive Into Python, the Mercurial book, and of course various documentation. Downloading them could be kind of annoying, so...

    Re: What are your experiences with Fedora?

    I went ahead and installed Fedora (Xfce spin). It's a pretty nice system, and seems to respond a bit faster than Xubuntu on my laptop. I may end up using Fedora permanently on my laptop and desktop...

    Re: Avatars For You All.

    Would you consider making one with the snake thing from the Python logo (http://www.python.org/community/logos/)? I don't mean to inconvenience you, but the graphics-force is not strong with me.

    Re: I'm an Arch Linux reject

    I wouldn't quite call it evangelical (if I had to guess what you were referring to, a better religious analogy would be "radical fundamentalist"). And you can't really make broad judgements about the...

    What are your experiences with Fedora?

    I've been looking at different distros recently, and one that stood out at me was Fedora. Based on what I've seen, it's about as runnable off of the disc as Ubuntu, and it's more geared to power...

    Re: Any Xubuntu Users Here?

    I'm running Xubuntu on two of my computers, Arch + Xfce on my server, and my dad also runs Xubuntu on his laptop.

    Re: I'm an Arch Linux reject

    I run Arch on a "testing" computer, but I'm not really involved in the Arch community since it's mostly just a server now. I haven't really noticed Arch elitism on the BBS - most of the people I was...
  16. Re: What do these dialects of English sound like to you?

  17. Re: What do these dialects of English sound like to you?

    Well, New England English tends to move around the R's. For example, "Mark" becomes "Mahk", but "pizza" (pete-za) becomes "pizzer" (pete-zer). Since I live in NC and my church's pastor is from...
  18. Poll: Re: Is Ubuntu the only OS you have installed on your Computer?

    It is on two of my computers. (The other one runs Arch.) Both of the two that now run Ubuntu used to dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows, but I ended up wiping out Windows on both of them because I never...

    Microsoft doing this is a really bad idea. Anyone has the right to block given search engines if they want to, and if Murdoch really doesn't like Google, that's his choice, but having a company pay...
