  1. The Dell Inspiron 8600 I have customized at $2,108 The Thinkpad I've configured to match the Dell's specs is a G41 288698U at $2,547.99 Somebody loan me $450...
  2. Has anybody ever noticed if IBM ever has sales on their website?
  3. I've known a few people with Dell laptops and they've had no trouble with the hard drives.
  4. A good idea, but those are too old. I want something than can act as my only computer for four years and, well, four years down the line I don't hink 700MHz will cut it. I like what Emporer Linux does, but they're too expensive. The upside of buying direct from Dell or whomever is that I can get the nifty "Accidental Damage" warranty, which means I can drop it and spill stuff on it all I want.
  5. Any opinions/recommendations as far as laptops for those of us going off to college next year is concerned? Right now I'm looking at a Dell Inspiron 8600. The IBM Thinkpads appear to be the nicest, but are way too expensive. I'll be putting Linux on it for sure, so I'm also wondering what the best laptop is for that, as far as hardware support.
  6. I ordered some free CDs from them http://shipit.ubuntulinux.org/ (looks like the site is having trouble at the moment.)
  7. tor

    I use it (with privoxy) 24/7.
  8. I was going to post the same thing. A mailing list that sends out updates when new shows are released, that is. I'm too lazy to go out and find when new shows are released (even if it's a simple manner of going to your website). I never listen live, so the days that shows air on aren't ingrained in my mind.

  11. Privoxy is nice, but I always have to tell it not to mess with cookies since I have firefox configured for that.
  12. I'm thinking about upgrading my slackware 10 install to the 2.6 kernel. From what I understand, I just install the kernel-generic-2.6.7-i486-1.tgz and kernel-modules-2.6.7-i486-2.tgz from /testing, run mkinitrd, and edit lilo. Do I also need the alsa package in there? When I do 'mkinitrd', should I do it for the root partition's file system or for /boot's filesystem?
  13. I hate all you people and your wmvs...
  14. I'm using it now. Slows down my connection a bit, but I like it.
  15. I just got 2.1 today. I don't know if this is a typo, misprint, or what, but on the second line of ntheory's Perl Corner article (page 43), the 'n' in Vonage is missing (it says 'Vo age'). Other than that, great issue! Both the look and articles are really good.
