    Preventative Measures to Avoid PC Problems

    There are many problems that can occur on a modern computer.
    Once they occur, they are often very difficult, or at least annoying, to repair. Sometimes the problems cannot be repaired adequately at...
  3. Re: Why do some programs connect to localhost (127.0.0.1)?

    Well, I was using GNUCash on Windows and my firewall said it was trying to connect to 127.0.0.1 and asked me if I wanted to allow or block.

    I assume if anything is connecting to 127.0.0.1 it isn't...

    Re: Why buy solid state drives?

    SSDs are good for OS installs or programs that are disk intensive. However, they are very expensive. They also use flash memory instead of platters like a normal hard drive. I seriously doubt the...

  6. [ubuntu] GSmartControl says all my hard drives have pre-failure or old age attributes?

    I have a Maxtor 300GB IDE drive that I pulled out of an external casing, a month old Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB and a 250GB Seagate drive. I haven't had any problems with any of them except...

  8. Why do some programs connect to localhost (127.0.0.1)?

    I was starting up GNUcash in Windows 7 and Comodo firewall says that it was trying to connect to 127.0.0.1 on some port. Why would a program like GNUcash (or any program I guess) need to or want to...
  9. Re: AT&T to start putting caps on DSL customers

    I don't understand why companies haven't been talking about the need to put data caps on internet connections before (I'm talking about the last decade; have they and I just haven't been paying...

  11. Re: Tor, TorButton, Firefox and download managers

    [ubuntu] Ubuntu and default iptables

    So does Ubuntu block all ports except 80 by default? Or does it do something where it allows programs access to ports when they need them? If the latter, that seems to negate the point of a firewall....
  13. Tor, TorButton, Firefox and download managers

    I am experimenting with Tor and was going around to different websites earlier. On one website I downloaded a couple files and a dialog box came up warning me about an external application. I said to...
  14. What the heck? Ubuntu can't recognize the Motorola Xoom via USB

    What the heck? Ubuntu cannot recognize the Motorola Xoom via USB. You have to download a special Windows driver to make it work. My HTC Incredible works just fine without any special drivers.

    I...
  15. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Ubuntu Studio Creation: Copyrights, Trademarks and License Fees?

    Yeah the whole thing about not having a point of sale for open source software does make things more complicated for sure. However, I shouldn't have to buy some expensive media creation software to...
  16. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Ubuntu Studio Creation: Copyrights, Trademarks and License Fees?

    I thought FFMPEG was included in Ubuntu, but a limited version. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFmpeg#Legal_status_of_codecs

    This talks like its pretty common in a limited sense.
  17. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Ubuntu Studio Creation: Copyrights, Trademarks and License Fees?

    What do you mean by "being prepared?"

    Anyway, on a side note: all of this stuff is exactly why I think open formats are key to enabling creative freedom. Also, this kind of stuff is why I am...

    If anyone has answers (or even comments) regarding the material in my last post please post. Thanks.
  19. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Ubuntu Studio Creation: Copyrights, Trademarks and License Fees?

    Ultimately, yes, I can't see any other way to approach this other than talking to an IP attorney.

    However, just from what you people know, if the fonts in Ubuntu Studio are used, what has to do...
  20. [ubuntu_studio] Ubuntu Studio Creation: Copyrights, Trademarks and License Fees?

    Does Ubuntu Studio have anything in it by default that is copyrighted or trademarked (images, fonts, etc.) Does Ubuntu Studio have any codecs, file formats (h.264, Xvid, DivX, etc) that require...
  21. [ubuntu] Why is the text field for the path not in Nautilus anymore?!

    Why do you have to press ctrl-L to use the location text box in Nautilus? There used to be a setting in preferences where you could have it always use the text bar. Now you have to use some gconf...

    Re: Will Unity kill Ubuntu? A message for Canonical

    I'm not going to read everything that has been said thus far, but from what I've seen about Unity so far, I don't think I will like it. Like the OP said, it seems like it is made for a netbook or a...

    Re: Email web forms?

    So would a spam message from a poorly designed PHP form have a forged header (I don't know a lot about hacking, etc.)
