    Re: August 2009 Screenshot Thread (thumbnails only)

    Here's mine. Sadly an 800x500 image cannot capture the glory that is my 17" laptop monitor (if I can even call it a laptop). But I was pretty pleased with my recent overhaul.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unintelligible screen corruption

    So for a while, I've thought that this was a heat-related problem, but I've started to think differently.
