Re: Hardy Heron

I don't suppose it just comes in through the auto-update? :lol: I haven't had time to play with the new release yet so I can't be sure, but I think there's a good chance it will. I've used the auto-update once (6.06 -> 6.10). It was pretty smooth, but left some old libraries and such lying around. ...

I always wanted to do that. And I think if I had $[lim n->0 (1/n)+ ] I could hook that up; 'cause chicks dig dudes with money.

Re: Psp owners unite!

I love my PSP! I got a slim one a couple of months ago. Haven't tried any non-standard firmware yet. I'm using 3.90 at the moment, mostly because I don't have time to hack around with it, but partly because I'm a little worried about bricking it! Is the custom firmware stable? I use mine mostly for ...

Re: Compiler does not recognize C Standard Library

Have you installed the build-essential package? It has all the C libraries but it's not included by default for some reason. If you haven't installed it yourself, try the following command in a terminal. sudo apt-get install build-essential Enter your password, install the package and try compiling ...

Re: Choosing a Linux Distro

If you want an Ubuntu-type distro, Xubuntu might be worth looking at. As far as I can tell, it's pretty standard Ubuntu, but with a much lighter GUI. I run Ubuntu on my laptop. It has some of the best hardware detection I've ever seen from a standard installation!

Re: Stupid elliptical machine!

I did some damage to my knee ligaments 6 or 7 years ago and it's never really been the same since. It's more likely your knee than the machine. I use one quite a lot because there's no impact like there is with running on a treadmill. Seeing a doctor is probably a good idea, if possible. At least st...

Re: Looking for a small, but not sublaptop laptop.

Firefly.

I don't live in the states, so I couldn't watch it on TV. I downloaded it then bought the R2 DVD set. Serenity was nice, but an extended Firefly would have been nicer!

Re: Worrisome Noise

It sounds like a bad fan. My CPU fan makes a similar noise, I haven't gotten round to replacing it yet. To be honest I'm not sure what's causing it. In my case, there's nothing obstructing the fan so I'm thinking it could a bad bearing.

Re: Rules of the Blues

One of my university lecturers once wrote a BASH script to generate Blues lyrics at "random" as a demonstration. It was pretty simple, just based on a version of The Rules in the first post, but it actually came up some plausible songs! I'll post it up here somewhere if I can find it again.

Re: What do you listen to when you study?

I like rock, but mostly listen to instrumental stuff when I'm studying. I'd recommend Explosions in the Sky. It's simple (3 guitars + drums), but quite hard to explain! I'm a CS student, not music! A bit of jazz is nice too.
