    [ubuntu] Re: btrfs makes old hdds appear to operate faster

    Just by matter of using the newer Kernel, the filesystem will be automatically "upgraded".
    If you create a btrfs filesystem with Ubuntu 12.04 for example, and then mount it with a 13.04 live USB,...

    [all variants] Re: Xpad drivers and third party controllers?

    I would send an email to Grumbel, the guy who created xboxdrv. I'm sure he'll be able to help you out. He would probably like to add support for that usb id to the driver anyway.

    An excellent way to clean circuit boards is with automotive brake cleaner. Non-chlorinated is best. Be careful though, since it will melt some kinds of soft plastics. Any parts on a quality...
