    Look closely and you'll see that he's sending an email message using Gmail, though at this resolution you can't quite read it.

      hahaa, too funny. He seems pretty satisfied and happy with Ubuntu! Or maybe he is tired of it already! LOL

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      *shudder*-i had an HP NC6000 on my desk today. user couldn't figure out why it kept shutting down on her. after i removed the keyboard and cooling fan, i found the answer. the heat sink cooling fins were completely blocked with about 3mm of cat hair and dust.

      do yourself a favor, Roger. get a can of compressed air and blow that thing out once month (with it shut down!)

      As to cat hair and dust, I opened my computer for the first time in a couple of years. I could have crocheted a sweater with the cobwebs I found.

      I blow compressed air through this poor machine every week or so. Couldn't function without it.

      Geek cat :) I wonder what he's typing.

      Have you ever heard of the cat-typing detection utility? It locks the keyboard when it detects cat-like typing (i.e. a cat walking across the keys).

      Yes. Here's an example. This hardly seems worth $23.

      Thats too funny!!

      I missed Gutsy, jumped right into Hardy and am now running Intrepid. Have you tried that yet?

    8. sskennel 65 months ago | reply

      No, I haven't dist-upgraded that laptop in a while.

      How do you like Intrepid?

    9. // Denise // 65 months ago | reply

      Obviously I can't compare it to Gutsy *g*, but it really isn't that different than Hardy was (on the surface, anyway). Couple of minor things different, it's a bit different for unmounting Memory sticks, etc. I'm one of the ones that had a "perfectly" smooth upgrade, which I know I'm lucky for. ;-)

      Do you use Gnome or KDE or anything?

    10. sskennel 65 months ago | reply

      I run a pretty vanilla GNOME install nowadays. For some years I used Enlightenment on Red Hat, and got a lot of people I worked with hooked on it, too. I'm pleased to see that the project seems to be active again (the WM is the 3rd Google hit on the search term "Enlightenment" :-) and it looks like there are howtos for installing it on various Ubuntu releases. Might have to go try it again when I have time.

      Do you process your images on Ubuntu? What tools do you use? (I'm embarrassed to say that I don't any longer.)

    11. // Denise // 65 months ago | reply

      I do. I use Gimp, haven't tried more adventurous than that. If I start looking to do more, then I will probably branch out, but for now it does what I need it to.

      I'm running Gnome, too. I tried Compiz and didn't see what the fuss was about and removed it. Tried KDE and was lost enough that I removed that, too, and went back to Gnome and am happy right here. :D

      Would he notice if you installed Kubuntu without telling him? :-D And the DV tapes work perfectly for getting the laptop some air, with camcorders becoming small like the Sony Bloggie and Flip camera, tapes are running out of uses.
