  1. - Ubuntu - eee pc custom thing (not quite xandros) 33
  2. It looks great The orange is especially welcoming.
  3. (407), (561), or (813) http://411.binrevmeetings.com/?page_id=3
  4. You may wish to browse some of the articles at DocDroppers.
  5. I'm /kzzp!/ with /hiss/ Rogers. Mainly /garble/ because /hiss/ I'm stuck in an /garble/ awful contract /hiss/ that I took /garble/ through work /call drop/
  6. There was actually one that survived a regular bombing http://long-lines.net/places-routes/CedarMtnUT/index.html They're used mountainous areas out west. As well, Rogers has a bunch of little high frequency microwave hops for cellular traffic all over Toronto, but they're only used for a couple hundred of meters within the city.
  7. I use cooliris. It's great for doing research or anything where you just want to skim a linked to page quickly. You can set it (in your add on/extensions preferences) so that you have to click on the icon to open a window.
  8. I can see that. There are a lot of governmental bodies around the world that use Linux (and really, doesn't that make sense?) and Fedora is probably better suited to their overall needs/maintenance requirements. I'm more confused about Finland, you'd think they would have more usage in general. Very interesting indeed.
  9. This issue was explored somewhat a while ago on an hpr episode: copyfight vol. 1 Only you can decide if its right or wrong, for you. It's been my experience though that if you think youre doing something wrong, regardless if it actually is or not, you're going to have to deal with the guilt, regret, etc. anyhow
  10. IANAL and this is only what I would do if it were me.... I would consider seeking a lawyer or paralegal in this matter. For no other reason than the unsettling idea that an organization so unscrupulous, with access to sensitive information, has accused you of offenses for reasons unknown. This whole scenario sounds fishy and I would certainly do what I could to cover my ass if it were me. By slandering you to other workers they have committed defamation of character, which is a tort that you can sue for. At the very least, I would make a sworn (before a justice of the peace, notary public, or the equivalent where you live) affidavit stating that you are aware of the situation at this time and that you deny the accusations made. This should only cost around $50. Try to be as specific as possible as they have probably made an entry on your personnel file with their version of the "facts". Good luck
  11. "Switzerland is designed to detect the modification or injection of packets of data traveling over IP networks, including those introduced by anti-P2P tools from Sandvine (widely believed to be used by Comcast to interfere with BitTorrent uploads) and AudibleMagic, advertising injection systems like FairEagle, censorship systems like the Great Firewall of China, and other systems that we don't know about yet." http://www.eff.org/testyourisp/switzerland
  12. I'm coming
  13. Gawd that would be awesome! There's obviously a need for basic linux tutorials and the only reliable things out there for step by steps, that I know of, is a sort of blog mishmash over at Planet lugradio (and that is most definitely not easy to sort through for specific stuff) and various forum posts. A wiki would seem to be your best option. I can see the benefit of keeping your stuff fairly basic and, if you'd like, you can separate articles intended to be part of the project from the rest of the stuff over at docdroppers through the use of categories. Again, it sounds like a great idea
  14. Wow. I really like the flow and your article library is very strong
  15. Thanks for showing me the way of the Reese's peanut butter cup :)

  16. That's what makes you awesome Aghaster !
  17. I'm sure they'd be ecstatic about a student running unknown software on their computers. I don't think s/he cares and I'm pretty sure they're smart enough to know that they're assuming a risk no matter what they do. If anything, I'm steering him/her towards open source as opposed to (most likely as it's not the posters box) using warez to accomplish their desired task. As well, using a live cd/usb mitigates potential damage to the schools property as these distros are designed not touch the existing operating system or files unless instructed to do so.
  18. Maybe I'm missing the point here, but wouldn't using a live cd or pendrive circumvent it?
  19. Well i dont think its that people dont think that hackers exist, rather they think that hott hackers dont exist.
  20. I think the "auto" is your mounting option. Just to be sure if your drive is recognised or not, your knoppix live cd (helix is based on knoppix so the results should be the same) should have a partition editor on the menu (qt/g-parted or such). If you use it (just to look, not to actually do anything) it should tell you what drives are recognised and their filesystems. If the drive is in fact recognised and it's a problem retrieving the files then you may wish to check out the forums at the helix site to find the recovery tool that's best suited to you. At this point, I feel it only fair to point out that I've only used autopsy once....and with lots of cussing So..bump bump ?
  21. If you still have trouble and you've got the resources, you might want to consider using helix.
  22. w00t Yes, yes, I do know of some open source python code you can adapt! It's the pywikipediabot framework that needs to be customized to the docdroppers page according to the to do list on StankDawgs user page. There are extensions to handle the conformity/template issues (more about that on my user page), but if the bot could be tweaked to take care of the articles that already exist, that would save a lot of work. If you could do this, that would be awesome and very much appreciated Please feel free to pm me if you need further information.
  23. You're quite right about that being a lapse in etiquette (and prolly just overlooked), however, I agree that consideration should be given to the time and effort put in voluntarily when forming "expectations". I hope it's sorted soon too:)
