    Re: Talk about VINTAGE computing!!

    I'd have to disagree. With the right knowledge, a technically inclined individual could use that old paperweight to do some home automation - coffee pot, window blinds, inside/outside lights... It...
  4. Re: Why get I sick playing race-games on Linux?

    Might want to try adjusting your screen refresh rate. If you're in DE, then you probably have a refresh rate of 50Hz, right? Try 60, or better yet, 72Hz (if possible).

    Long Answer:

    In theory, if you had a resonant cavity, your transmitter(s)/receiver(s) operated at that resonant frequency, you could set up what is referred to as a standing wave. Once standing...

    Re: DO NOT buy this laptop!

    Very odd, indeed. I have a Toshiba Satellite a135 that I got in late 2006 that has run nothing but Linux since the day I brought it home. I've had some wireless weirdness along the way, and I have to...
  9. Re: Can I use brake cleaner to clean electronic parts??

    Somebody already said it, but isopropyl alcohol would be your safest bet. That, a hog's-hair paint brush clipped down to make the bristles stiff enough to scrub with (hog's hair = anti-static) and...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Permissions problem on files moved to my comp from smb share.

    I had an option security = share as opposed to security = user under, I believe, the Authentication heading. That was supposed to keep all this from happening in the first place, if I remember what I...
  11. [SOLVED] Permissions problem on files moved to my comp from smb share.

    I have Ubuntu 10.10 running here and a Windows 7 desktop. I'm using samba to share files and folders. I have full read/write access to the 7 box, and vice versa. However, whenever a user of the 7 box...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Nautilus doesn't see shared folders on Windows Box

    I was following Dmizer's Samba Fix tutorial when I changed the security setting in smb.conf. It's a recommended step somewhere along the line, and I'm not really that concerned with security. The...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Nautilus doesn't see shared folders on Windows Box

    Yeah, that's usually what that means. Allow me to reassure you that File & Printer sharing is indeed turned on in the Windows computer.

    In fact, if I boot into Windows on the Ubuntu Laptop, file...

    Re: Should schools be using linux?

    My opinion is that schools should be teaching about run-on sentences in English classes before anybody starts to worry about which OS is installed on their computers.

    Once that's out of the way,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Complete System Meltdown

    No, I'd say your GPU and all your hardware are all OK. The fact that a non-Ubuntu OS on the same machine works fine is proof of that.

    About all you can do is wipe both Ubuntus off your drive,...
