Posted 01-16-2006 at 04:30 AM by gfgf

this blog is meant to be a 2-way information exchange about common issues, arising every now and then, using my fantastic laptop (a Dell Inspiron 8600, full optional).
hence i'll be writing the solutions I found, as well as I'll be requesting some help about specific issues I cannot manage by myself.
every contribute is welcome.
