Computers do not produce high-fidelity music, do they?

Posted 04-25-2013 at 10:27 PM by flshope

Since my early 20s (40 years ago), I have been interested in high-fidelity equipment for music reproduction. To me, "high-fidelity equipment" means powerful amplifiers (100s of watts rms per channel), heavy big-box wooden speakers (several cubic feet each) capable of reproducing 30 hz to around 20 Khz with a flat frequency response and a bunch of other acoustic characteristics, and high quality devices to play music media. I am not into high-end equipment, where each component costs O($10^5)...

HP 2133 Mini-note PC crunching along just fine with Ubuntu

Posted 03-29-2013 at 05:42 PM by flshope

After about a month since I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (overwriting SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10) on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, I can report that the machine has not crashed once with Ubuntu. Under SUSE, it crashed several times during on a session. If you have one of these machines with SUSE (a vendor installation) and yours crashes repeatedly, I recommend you consider installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The process is a standard installation from an external DVD drive (I have an LG GP40, which is plug...

Installation of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HP 2133 Mini-note PC

Posted 02-28-2013 at 08:43 PM by flshope

I have a little laptop computer, an HP 2133 Mini-note PC, that originally had SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (Novell) as installed by the manufacturer in 2008. I was never very happy with the machine for several reasons. It was unstable and crashed frequently, but I could never determine if it had a hardware or software problem. A lot of stuff didn't work at all: an outboard modem, sound, camera, auto software updates, to name a few. If HP or Novell offered OS updates, I could never find them....

Definition of Insanity

Posted 02-20-2013 at 06:09 PM by flshope

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, what do you call doing the same thing over and over and GETTING a different result? A computer operating system! Linux, Windows, ..., whatever.

Email disaster with Opera, Plan B: Thunderbird

Posted 12-30-2012 at 10:38 AM by flshope

After loosing my email history to some failure associated with the Opera email client, I have not yet decided to attempt a recovery using Opera. If it happened once, it will happen again. I prefer Opera as a browser, but I have soured on its email client.

So, as I mentioned previously, I decided to implement Thunderbird as my primary email client. Thunderbird has some official status with Ubuntu in the sense that it is a part of the standard Ubuntu installation and they provide reliable...
