    Probably SP2 then, but still outdated. I heard the IT techs talking about them being SP1 but that was a while ago.

    Our teacher has talked about upgrading the computers, but they say it will cost...

    AS Computing sucks!

    I took AS Computing hoping it would further my education towards the world of computers.

    However, it has been anything but.

    First, the computers are slow and unusuable. They run Windows XP,...

  5. [other] I have some SSDs - how to preserve their lifetime?

    I was given two old 128 GB OCZ SATA-II SSDs. I've set them up in RAID 0 right now and I get 252 MB/s read rate, which is very fast. These are very expensive new, and I didn't really plan for them -...

    Re: Who doesn't like the new Google homepage?

    Anyway it's gone now... so problem solved.

    My point on Ubuntu's left-sided window buttons: why change them? I use Windows nearly 20% of the time and Ubuntu 80% of the time. Not enough to justify...

    On the sidebar, there's an option to select 'Pages from the UK', or in your case, 'Pages from Australia'. See attached image made in 30 seconds in GIMP.

    My point is that Bing, Yahoo, etc. do this because they need to attract people to the homepage with pretty graphics when the overall functionality is not as good in my opinion. If Google are doing...

    Re: Who doesn't like the new Google homepage?

    I hate it because it takes away the minimalism Google used to stand for. The great thing about Google is that it loads fast. It's like they've had a whole change of thought over these last few years....

    You can set the image to white. But then you can't read the text. The next best thing is setting it to black I suppose.

    Re: Who doesn't like the new Google homepage?

    Strange why the ?hl=all trick works here but not with you.

    Why is there no easy-to-find option to turn it off? There's a list of backgrounds to select, but there's no 'None' option! Ugggh!

  17. Re: Do you think we'll ever have a computer powerful enough to divide by 0?

    0/0 is indeterminate because you get tricky questions like the limit of x^2/x (at least that's what I understand... haven't done advanced calculus yet.)

    0/0 is either 1 or anything, depending on who you ask. If you ask a mathematician, it is 'indeterminate'.

    NTFS isn't that bad. It's actually a reasonably good product. But I guess it is what you would call a "general purpose" filesystem. Not really specialised in anything.
