slow 'net connection

Posted 05-28-2014 at 04:08 AM by pierre2

since, there is no *DSL availabilty, it's a 3g connection to go ..
but, boy does that thing time out, freeze and otherwise embark on a NoGo campain.

suprisingly, it will D/L stuff quite A.ok,
but it just won't stream any 'browsing the internet' ie: surf the 'net.

someting to do with the tower, - is about 8000m away - that's too far?
always thought that you could get over 20Km with mobile technology,
- but aparantly not.

going...

Another day, another laptop that has crashed - gee I just gotta love M$ stuff - it's just so reliable, ain't it ?. Boot a 'nix live_cd and look at those partitions. Gee - what's that? A yellow triangle against the C: drive - that's SDA3 - ain't it? Must be, as that little, boot, partition is SDA1. No that's not right - SDA1 is PQrecovery, SDA2 is boot, SDA3 is C: drive. That's better. No it's not -the live 'nix cd can't read the partition's data - rat's that means that I can't copy out this person's...

MintBox

Been playing with this for a while now,
seems quite a good gadget - to play wih.
this one came with Mint13 - cinnamon - partially installed.
just had to complete the install - username, location etc.

haven't used cinnamon before - so was keen to 'give it a run'.
probably prefer Mate - though - but happy to use either. . .

the H/W is quite up-to-date & uses several usb's to connect,
the video is via hdmi & sound vis 2.5mm socket....

Free Money

Posted 03-20-2012 at 09:14 AM by pierre2

Just looking at a gov't grant to buy a pile of <wiped> used notebooks.

may be able to get several 2nd hand ones.

at least - there won't be any previous O/Ss that I would have to get rid of.

these would be used to show other people, how to use a 'nix O/S
without them getting concerned / afraid the their M$ will get altered / damaged / wiped out.

Auctions

Posted 03-20-2012 at 09:09 AM by pierre2

went to a local auction the other week, - never have had a chance to do this before,
& wanted to get some notebooks - maybe 6 - 10 or so of these, but I was quite surprised
at just how high the price for 2nd hand notebooks were.

almost 40% of a brand new one, with only slightly higher spec's ??.
- new one would have more memory or a larger hdd - but only just.
