Another New Toy to Play With

Posted 01-08-2015 at 04:36 AM by brianL

Well, a refurbished one. Although it looks good enough to be new.
A Lenovo Thinkpad T410. With an i5-520 CPU, 8 GB RAM, and a 320 GB HDD, all for £219. Seems like good value for money to me, considering I paid about £199 for a new eee pc 1001ha a few years ago. The T410 has Windows 7 Professional installed, and the C:\ drive (/dev/sda2) is sandwiched between a system partition and a recovery partition.

When you first get the Acer C720 ChromeBook, you need to turn it on and login to your Google (GMail) Account. Google Chrome is basically a Browser that operates as a Desktop. In order to do anything productive, you need to download apps from the App Store and you can't get apps without a valid Google Account. This particular tutorial will go through installing Slackware64 14.1-Current, which is at Kernel 3.14.27. In order to use the trackpad, you will need to compile a 3.17.X Kernel or above since...

Old time Winter, at least that's what the weather analyst call it.

Hi,

We just got a 6 inch snowfall and things are bitterly cold therefore very dangerous for everyone. I now live in a small town and do not have to worry about clearing a long lane or access to my barn. That task(s) were a killer in itself.

Just paid a guy to clean my short driveway. Worth every dime to keep from having another heart attack.

I am going south for a while to warm these bones up and get some golf in. With low gas prices the trip will be cheaper...
