What has impressed me most in what I've seen reported about all the flooding and damage is you cats have managed to avoid calamitous injuries/deaths through it all. Aussies seem to be a tough minded, persevering bunch, traits I greatly admire in a culture Oddly, when Katrina kit New Orleans so many were injured and died simply because they were too damned stupid to get out of the way of a st

One sunny day in late January 2013 an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama." The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here." The old man

I still have no idea WTF happened but both my Ubuntu and Fedora machines simultaneously lost their network programming out of the blue! Couldn't get either machine to log into my router or get online, though my old XP machine did no prob though it was disconnected from the network when this happened to the other 2 machines. I replaced my DSL modem, wired and wireless 10/100 routers with a new

An older, white-haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his new girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The old man said, 'No, I'd like to see something a bit more "special". At that state

Actually I dropped in a spare 40gb IDE HD into my i7 machine and loaded it onto that after a full install of Ubuntu 9.10 as they mentioned this was an easy install method, which was true. I still haven't devoted a lot of time to this project yet but it does look very promising for the LR machine. I have a cuppla generic tuner cards w/IR remotes and I may fiddle with that set up too.

Yeah, I finally worked through this as well as setting up my location and a few other things. Some of the controls seem to be in funky places and the methodology a bit odd here and there, just a matter of stumblin through it all and such. I like the interface and layout for an HTPC set-up though at times the underlying software seems unforgiving and flaky. If I click somethin and then change

I loaded up XBMC onto a spare drive I dropped into my system but it can't see the other drives in the system to read from 'em. The interface looks cool but short of loadin everything to the home folder on this drive, which would be impossible, it won't do too much good. I'll have to do some more diggin around and see what I can come up with

Sounds like a cool toy pulse! I still haddn tried XBMC but I think I will load that up and give it a shot. Though it's major overkill I know, the machine I'm workin on for my LR will have an i7-920 w/6gigs of DDR3 1333mhz triple channel ram at its core and at present 4.5tb of HD space which will need to be more like 8.5tb when it's all done so I can store my DVD and music collection in it in

I have a Voip line but I don't use Skype, works decent an it's cheap, so ... I know there are several different Voip phone programs for Ubuntu that offer a lot of cool tricks but I really haven't tried any of those either, tryin to stay with the KISS stuff. I do know the recent 9.10 has problems with Skype, though an installation of 8.04 or 8.10 should allow you to use Skype .... I think, so long

I'm almost right there with ya pulse. I have 4 linux machines and an XP machine -> (lives offline as a purely bookkeeping machine) here at the casa. I haddn tried 7 yet though I've heard good things from users which must be music to MS's ears after the huge Vista debacle they're tryin to work their way past. Mac comes in as a second best choice for me but their funky ways and lack of ease
