I have finally gone over to "Member" status.

Gosh, what the hell took me so long to get there? It is only 30 friggin' posts!!! Oh yeah, inertia.

Well, I will have to rectify that. I work for a university and we keep discussing portals and I keep holding this site up as the Holy Grail of portal sites.

Here is to posting, blog-ing, and wiki-ing more!

Update to Mini 9 Odyssy

Posted 12-30-2008 at 10:29 AM by PresGas (President Gas is President Gas again.)

Well, after a pleasant holiday and a car accident on X-mass night, I am recovered enough to post a continuation of my Mini 9 observations.

Thanks to the helpful commentary of Hangdog42, I discerned that the wireless drivers that I mentioned were the same. I still completely freeze in our university environment which is 802.11g wpa2-enterprise, but am fine on my wep 802.11b router. I had one complete freeze on another test wpa2-personal 802.11g router, but I was not able to reproduce...

Inspiron Mini 9 is in the he-ouse.

Posted 12-17-2008 at 10:31 AM by PresGas (President Gas is President Gas again.)

Okay, so I got the machine in late yesterday and this morn, I immediately put in Xubuntu 8.10 alternative cd so that I could get the encrypted private directory without much hassle. Also, I kinda wanted the surprise of seeing what I would boot up to and what would be available. I am now writing this entry from it.

Here is the lshw output (removed USB stuff:

Awaiting Dell Inspiron 910

Posted 12-14-2008 at 08:33 PM by PresGas (President Gas is President Gas again.)

Oh, yeah. I got an email on the 12th that it has shipped. I am pretty pumped about it, but I had to order it with XP on it.

I work for an .edu and had to go through purchasing channels. Now all I need to do is find the proper dell repos and get set up for Ubu.

Unless any of you know if there are repositories for 8.10, it is time to dive into some hot Google action.

Well, well, well...we get a blog too?

Well, this is nice.

I did not know we would get a blog as well with joining. This really is a nice community so far, and I hope that I can pay back by contributing as best I can.
