Repugnant, Indeed

"It is evident to everyone, that those things which are called the works of Nature, that is, the far greater part of the ideas or sensations perceived by us, are not produced by, or dependent on the wills of men. There is, therefore, some other spirit that causes them, since it is repugnant that they should subsist by themselves."

- George Berkeley "A Treatise concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge"

MeX 64 bit Linux with Cinnamon 2.2 and kernel 3.16.2 :: build 140917

All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140917. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can do it. Watch a SLIDESHOW of the hard drive installation process.

WTF

Posted 09-15-2014 at 06:59 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I remember when DOOM came out. I was amazed at the physics, the graphics, and the gore of the game. Now it runs on...a printer?

I don't even.

I can't.

WTF.

Ubuntu 14.04 upgrade succeeds on 3-yr-old computer

Posted 09-14-2014 at 01:55 PM by flshope

After my traumatic upgrade experience on my old computer, I was not looking forward to risking a disaster with my primary machine.
