  2. Re: If you could be any Mythical Creature what would it be?

    I was going to say the same. One of my favorite existing animals, coincidentally...I find many of the social dynamics around their breeding and interaction pretty hilarious.

    As for mythical...

    underlining links in post previews

    Don't know if this something you'd even want to bother fixing, as it may seem kind of trivial to some people.

    When writing a post with links embedded into the text, if you use "Preview Post," the...

    Re: Amarok 2.2 Beta 1

    Well, I just checked around a bit on Launchpad -- it doesn't look like Amarok 2.2 has been packaged for Jaunty yet. Which repositories might you be referring to?

    If you're talking about Kubuntu...

    Re: Which OS?

    You can still be compatible with school policies while still using open standards; OpenOffice can at least read all the MS Office formats. For things that need to be printed, file format doesn't...

    Re: Open source antivirus?

    Is it? I thought that I saw it in our repositories, as clamav. It's a command line program, but if I remember correctly, it has various frontends; clamtk, avscan, klamav (for KDE). I even remember...

    Poll: Re: Do you think the name is Linux?

    "It's Just the kernel, but call the entire OS Linux anyway"

    In conversation, people will use symbols that are short, convenient, and memorable. This holds twice as true in memory recall. Not to...

    Re: GIMP needs a name retouching?

    Well -- the biggest negative reaction that I was aware of to the GIMP was that the word "gimp" is also a derogatory term for someone who's crippled. This isn't quite the same as criticizing a mascot...
  11. Re: Quick Question: Who Handles Social Networking Marketing/Support for Ubuntu?

    Well I believe Jono Bacon is the community manager, or some title like that. Since what you're talking about seems a little more like community building at other venues rather than marketing, maybe...

    [all variants] Re: backing up

    GParted already has its own liveCD. If you visit the project website (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ ), you can find it on their download page.

    To move the files, you would just have to mount the...

    Re: Yoga

    It's not really necessary. Nice for the people that can afford it, but millions of people have managed to learn it on their own. It just takes practice, focus, and having a relaxed environment to do...

    Re: what do you think of this umpc?

    I wouldn't recommend the HP Mini-Note; I'm not a huge fan of Via processors. If the EeePC doesn't do it for you, I too would recommend the Acer.

    Wow! That was one of the best done spam posts I've ever seen! So simple that no one saw it...nice catch, LaRoza. Can't believe I fell for that.
  19. Re: Firefox 3 sets a Guinness World Record!

    Re: Help Entertaining My Kids

    It also really depends on your kids' reading comprehension abilities. I was reading the "Goosebumps" series in 3rd grade, but my little brother didn't start reading for pleasure until he was in 8th...
  21. Re: Firefox 3 sets a Guinness World Record!

    That's true. To be fair, I did get my parents to try it; my dad loves it and is never going back. My mother couldn't care less. I'm sure that there were other cases like mine too, but I don't doubt...
  22. Re: Firefox 3 sets a Guinness World Record!

    yup, that's definitely true. But considering what they were originally aiming for (3 million?), they at least exceeded expectations.

    Not to say I really advocated getting people to download their...
