    [ubuntu] Re: Sound choppy with ATI IXP SB400

    I feel by now reasonably certain in saying that the only final fix for this problem is a kernel upgrade. I have tested this idea first by installing karmic koala (9.10) which uses 2.6.30, secondly...

    After starting a new thread on the same issue, I got some information that prompted me to speculate that this was a SB400-specific issue and then google-stumbled my way to this thread.

    [ubuntu] Choppy/staccatto sound (PulseAudio/ALSA)

    Symptoms:

    After a while of playing music or video (and sound working perfectly normal), music (and accompanying video, if any) begins progressing very, very slowly - I'd say 1/100th of 'realtime'...

    Re: Conky Google Calendar Python Script

    I think I got it: I had set the export "HTTP_PROXY=127.0.0.1:8118" variable in a global config file and apparently a) this was being used by the connection and b) port 8118 (privoxy) was being...
