  1. Yeppers. I think you are right dlewis. I am about to give up on the bluetooth dongle in Ubuntu. I haven't quit just yet though. There are so many factors involved. You install this when you should have installed that. If you change this it messes with the settings of that. Its mind boggling to say the least. I have "sudo gedit" as a very new part of my vocabulary lately. Here is where I am so far. I set up my rfconn file because I will need it later in this post. Here is part of that guide...... http://img702.mytextgraphics.com/photolava/2008/08/17/blue11-fjz99jc1.png And my result
  2. Ok, may not seem like a big deal to those of you running around anywhere from 10000 Kbps to 40000 Kbps, but to me this is a big deal!! Just checked my download speeds and a REmarkable!! improvement. Now that I am running in Ubuntu, and I think everything is straight, at least for the phone as modem connected to usb. Bluetooth is a different issue entirely, still can't get it to work. Anyway, this is what I was running in Windows XP........ And now with Ubuntu. Yay!!!!
  3. What's PHP? And yes, I will definately post it when I figure it out. Working on it right now.
  4. OBAMA EXPLAINS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longerwears a flag pin,presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171, During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. 'As I've said before about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking si
  5. You sure that isn't you roaming around in those woods Coknuk? Lol, just kidding.
  6. Georgia men claim hairy, frozen corpse is bigfoot By MALIA WOLLAN, Associated Press Writer 26 minutes ago PALO ALTO, Calif. - Bigfoot or big fat lie? Whenever someone reports sighting the hairy beast of yore (details always fuzzy) or capturing the hirsute humanoid on film (images always grainy), it scares up a dubious debate of international proportions. Friday was just the latest episode in the Sasquatch show, as unreal as it may be. Two men who claim to have stumbled across a Bigfoot corpse in the woods of northern Georgia indignantly stood by their story at a news conference
  7. Kewl Buntz. that'll work. Wow, all this time I thought I was the only one trying this Ubuntu or linux thing, at least in this forum anyway. I am glad to know there are people here to turn to when I have questions. Thanks Mudmanc4 and Buntz. Ha ha, now to put that to use........lol. I probably am dumb for asking it, and when I get the problem resolved I am going to be duh! It was right there in front of my face this whole time. The question is concerning bluetooth. I connect to the internet currently through using "wvdial" in Ubuntu. I use my phone as a modem. I have installed the kde blu
  8. Just a follow up. I booted from the live cd of ubuntu and started gparted. I went through the process of shrinking the Ubuntu partition, down to roughly 20gigs, in the hopes that I could increase the Windows partition. Well unfortunately, the 20 gigs of Ubuntu was all the way left. so I then had to move that partition all the way right, leaving about 120 gigs of free space between Ubuntu and Windows. Well, wouldn't you know it, there is no way to expand the windows to the right into that free space. So anyway, what I ended up doing was just install a new ubuntu partition and did a guided,
  9. Nice. Hmm, they have sunrises even in iraq. That's awesome Tstillery. I have been thinking about going back in. I am a State and Nationally certified Pharmacy Technician. I have been talking to an Army special recruiter and I would get a bonus and enlist as a non-commisioned officer. I know sure as I joined, though, they would ship me right over there. And with things escalating in Russia/Georgia, who knows whats going to happen. Anyway, I know I have said it before, but I don't think I can say it enough. Thanks bud for all that you do. Go Army!
  10. I just had a question, and it is really not concerning speed or tweaking ip settings, so I decided to post it in here, since it is kind of off topic. I know there are a few among us that run linux or ubuntu, or some other distro of such. If you have been following my posts you see that I have had quite a fun time this past week, NOT. lol. Well I have finally got windows and ubuntu working together harmoniously on my WD 160gb hard drive. when I want to boot into windows, i boot at startup, same for ubuntu. I have finally got internet working on ubuntu, and all is well in the land of double
  11. Welcome back Ca3le. We missed ya bud. Sounds like you had a heck of a trip.I would love to visit Napa Valley. Heck for that matter any where out west. Haven't been in a while. Not since my Navy days. The google deal is pretty kewl though.Hopefully you'll be able to get everything else straight. Anyway, welcome back!!
  12. Ohhhhh! Now I see said the blind man. At the very bottom left of the browser window. Well gooolleeee. :2funny:I amaze myself sometimes. You might have to show me how to do something 2 or 3 times, but once I get it, I gets it, ya know. So why is ca3le #2? I thought he was the original and owner. And has anyone noticed we haven't heard from him in a while? Ca3le, we miss ya bud. Anyway, thinks for helping out there mama T. I finally get it. ***edit- oops i confligurate my statement(lol, is that a word?) I see Ca3le is back. Welcome back!!
  13. Huh? lol, jk. Yea you confused me a little, but that is not hard to do Mama T. I get the gist of what you are saying though. But when it comes to the hover number, all I get when I hover is "view the profile of xxxx" *xxxx being the member name.
  14. Kewl Mudmanc4. Wow, I did not know that was even possible. I think my next computer is going to be an Apple. Soon as I get done abusing the heck out of this one. And by triple boot, do you mean that you would be able to have the three instances running at the same time on one screen, or meaning you can boot up into either of the three. 'coz where I am at right now, I can only boot up and either run windows xp, or boot up and run Ubuntu. I have heard that you can run windows and linux at the same time, switching desktops to get to either. I just don't know how to do it. I think I will researc
  15. Yep, that is true mudmanc4. I have even tested from a fresh clean install and windows was still lower than the speeds I am getting with ubuntu/linux. And the weird thing.....I download something in winxp and the d/l speeds are usually 40-50 kbps, where in ubuntu, last night I was downloading ubuntu updates, and it was downloading at 100-105 kbps. Awesome!!!
  16. *Question though. Does the test take into account the operating system? Running with Ubuntu I have much faster results than when I run it under WinXP.
  17. Guys, this has been great. So much input on this. --NinjaGeek - Hey, I am up for anything. After I get a little more self-training on Ubuntu, I think Nlite will be my next project. I would love to be able to have an xpsp3 restore disk. Reading through your previous posts on the subject it sounds like a little bit of a challenge, but challenge is my middle name. I think it would be fun and at the same time educational. Hmm, that's the same thing I said when I signed up for sex ed in high school. Lmao. I think if you make a guide it should definately be posted and stickied in the forum, w
  18. Just an update on the virus problem. I still have avast, but I am putting it on hold for a while. I researched and decided to install Avira antivirus. It is the free edition, so ads are everywhere, but it seems a pretty good program. I tested it against some faux viruses and all in all it came out better than avast did. I will let you know how it performs in the long haul. I am really mad that I lost all the work for [email protected], but I have reinstalled and going at it again. Oh well, through this little ordeal I have learned a lot and some interesting doors were opened. Namely, concernin
  19. Ah, those were the days. It's even got a 6 GB hard drive!!!
  20. That's an even better plan. I really don't understand what joy they get out of such a thing. Oh, and an update. I am almost finished getting things back the way I like them. If the d**n hackers only knew how many hours it takes to redo everything. Ah, they probably do know. Jerks.
  21. Ah hah. That's a good one. Think I will use it for a couple of days. I wish they would round up all the hackers that make viruses and make them clean and reinstall windows on every comp they ever destroyed. lol
  22. I am going to go for whats behind door # 3 Bob. Let's make a deal. I say that we will reach 60,000 members at 2:39Pm on September the 4th. Plus its my birthday, so it's gonna happen. Lol.
  23. Done. Thanx Philly for posting that. My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She got breast cancer in 1987 and had to have a radical mastectomy. She came through that fine, thank God. They say if you go 10 years cancer free after having cancer and removing it, you are pretty much free from it. Well almost 10 years to the day, in 1997, they found cancer again. And again she had to have a mastectomy, this time removing the only one left. Thankfully she came through it again fine. I know in my heart she survived both times because of early detection, giving the doctors a chance to remove the cancer b
  24. Hello gang. Been away for a while because I had a BIG problem with a little virus. Somehow, through downloading an app. somewhere, I obtained a virus. Avast was good, it alerted me to the fact that I had a virus and offered to s**tcan it for me. I proceded to quarantine the son of a gun. Well something must not have clicked with Avast, and so I had to try to restore my comp.Don't get me wrong. I love Avast and still have it even now. This is a one time incident in well over 4 years. I always back up my drive frequently in case such an event happens. Well somehow the virus wiped out all o
