"What is the sound of a single transistor firing?"
When logged on to a Server 2008, within 30 seconds I get that same intense urge to kill someone that I get from Vista.
I thought 2008 is simply Vista Server.
I really like Ubuntu, but I've grown tired of KDE. Once I discovered
Xfce, though, I knew I had found a new love. Lean and mean!
How do you switch window managers in ubuntu?
In the good old days you just find the config file and edit.
Not so much anymore.
Today I inhereted a flatscreen monitor, so I hooked it up to my linux machine.
Linux didn't like it too much. When I finally got it to display correclty it offered me 800x600 and 640x480. I know the monitor can at least do 1024x768.
So after farting around for a while I eventually came across this: gksu displayconfig-gtk
That's right, instead of finding the right config file, you just have to find the right config program, there's usually lots of them all installed on your machine already, ready to never be used, and each one can do one thing that the other can't.
So I told it I had a 1024x768 monitor and kicked X.
Still 800x600, why? Because the gnome screen resoloution was set to 8x6 but now at least it had the 1024x768 option, so I set that and THEN it worked.
It's getting to be almost funny.
I watched that video.
The .02 of a second faster that chroms is over IE is not considered.
But the .02 seconds that ie is faster than chrome in the very next page load, doesn't get mentioned.
Also ms keeps 2 young looking kids trapped in a corner of a data center doing timing tests 24/7. That's horrible.
How do you switch window managers in ubuntu?
Easiest way is to choose the session type from the login screen. Just log out and look for the options button or dropdown (depending on your log in screen.)
No, that lets you chose a different desktop (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, etc.)...not neccessarily the window manager. I think he means he doesn't like Metacity and wants to switch. Try this site: http://xwinman.org/

I'm in the Vista zone again.
World's most Zen operating system.
Yesterday, I built a WinXP VM on my Fedora 9 system, using VirtualBox.
Next, I'll be working on a Vista VM on my Fedora 10 laptop, also using VirtualBox.
If it works well, I will, more than likely, completely rebuild my laptop as a Fedora 10 laptop, with a Windows (Vista, XP...whichever) VM under VirtualBox, and be able to work without having to deal with choosing which OS to boot (I'm currently dual-booting).
Incidentally, F10 is the first distro I've installed that recognizes and fully supports the video resolution of my laptop's video subsystem, my laptop's sound card, and the Aetheros wifi card I am quite pleased.
turbolinux anounced today a linux connector for active directory..
but... not in the US. afraid of getting sued. Like probably makers of devices with VFat may become... like Zarafa and their Z-Push is...
maybe this is a starting trend of the US becoming locked out of access to newer technology because of vendors afraid to get sued?
The boss is mad at me. I won't install some software on his computer. His box runs Vista. I don't even want to mess with it's security settings. Especially since the boss will open ANYTHING that is sent to him. IT department has his box locked down tight....I can mess with the other computer cause it's XP. Gonna set up a live Fedora disk and run that I think....that will confuse everyone in the office.
God, I had working with this fucking operating system.
I find myself reduced to dealing with fucking cygwin, because I need rsync to do something I need. But fucking cygwin doesn't seem to like embedded xp, and I haven't a damned clue what it wants. I *ought* to be able to install *something* on this wretched machine to make it work, but the only way I'll find out requires animal sacrifices and vestal virgins (the appropriate versions of which are not readily available).
My Fucking God, when will people send the entire Microsoft campus to the sun?
That's the "MS Vaporize" project. Currently vaporware, scheduld for 2020.
fleeb, have you tried unison?
If you want I can dig it up for you.
How do you fix a hard drive that's a file on disk?
probably some microsoft security fix auto-repaired that for you.
I am trying unison, as dothebart suggested.
It is fugly, but it will do the job, if inexpertly.
I have to create batch-file-weirdness to use unison, because unison cannot handle a large job at all (so I have to break the job down into smaller subfolders).
Worse yet, I have to create a service wrapper that will ensure the damned thing stays running, because if you try to make it handle a job beyond its capabilities, it stops running. This is extremely bad for what I'm attempting to do (a cheesy kind of ersatz mirroring thing that can switch modes [master/slave] when the master goes down).
