    Re: Can't connect to new router

    I don't particuarly understand why the fix worked. Basically, all it was involved disabling the driver and then re-enabling, which I would have expected a computer reboot would do. I didn't have to...

    I do owe you my thanks. I wasn't previously aware there was a problem with "N" routers, and I didn't stumble across that with my searches. But after your comment, I searched more specifically for...

    Can't connect to new router

    I'm having a weird problem. A power surge/outage knocked out my home router, so I went out and bought a new one (that's not my problem). But now, my Ubuntu laptop won't connect to the new router (it...

    Re: Your Favourite (obscure/old) Sci-Fi TV Shows?

    I think you are a little confused. William Daniels did the voice of K.I.T.T., but I don't see any evidence that he was ever on Buck Rogers. He was on St. Elsewhere, as well as Boy Meets World. He...

    Re: Your Favourite (obscure/old) Sci-Fi TV Shows?

    I forgot about that show. It was a good one.

    Somehow, that reminded me of Deadly Games, which was another good show (and a bit more obscure).

    Re: Your Favourite (obscure/old) Sci-Fi TV Shows?

    Before Quantum Leap, there was Voyagers! That was definitely one of my favorite shows as a kid.

    [ubuntu] Re: Memory scan on CD?

    Actually, that is what I have been doing, but I've gotten used to using LiveUSB (rather than a LiveCD), and I didn't feel like buying a new flash drive just to carry an old version of Ubuntu.

    Your computer should be powerful enough to run any of the Ubuntu family (except maybe Mythbuntu, but since that is a media center/DVR, that would be a special exception).
