I am going to quit expressing them and try to subdue the emotions that they may bring forth. No one ever agrees with me on anything, and that depresses me. Many times I feel like I get attacked and/or belittled. It makes me feel like I am in the wrong community here on LQ. I suppose I should just admit that I am dumb and ignorant. I don't even know what is true or right anymore. Just an FYI to some people I'm only human and I have feelings too.

Anyway, from this point further I will...

A Wubi issue fixed!

Posted 05-02-2011 at 03:58 AM by rich_c

A colleague asked me to have a look at a laptop he’d installed Mint on using Wubi. He was getting an error
Try (hd0,0): NTFS5 no wubildr
which was delaying booting into Mint by a minute or two. After much Googling, the solution wasn’t immediately obvious. So, I thought I’d blog it here!

In the end, what the solution turned out to be was pretty trivially simple. I located wubildr and wubildr.mbr on the C: drive (/host with Mint running.) and copied them to the ‘hidden’ partition...

Wish to try Ubuntu

Posted 05-02-2011 at 01:50 AM by megasaputra

I read in the website, ubuntu had released new version. So, I want to try this linux distro. In, ubuntu is the most popular in 6 month later. May be, it is so easy to operate although operator is beginner. I have ever tried it when it was in version 10 or 9. And my computer froze. I couldn't do anything. So, I change to opensuse. I have tried sabily 10, the varian of ubuntu. My computer did't freeze. May be, in new version, ubuntu doesn't freeze my computer.

It all depends on your needs. The reason there are so many distros is because each tries to accommodate the needs of different groups of users.

I like Kubuntu for my personal desktop system, but there are many others worth considering. Try some of these places to help you choose.

Found several rc cars at Goodwill for two and three dollars each. No controllers though. The tonka toy rc cars were dismembered for the power train to be used for my pc based robot. Have all the parts, it now just a matter of putting it all together.

Put a couple of basic recipes for my daughter on

Bought an adult bike for five dollars from Goodwill. Needs lots of work... It will become everything from transportation to an energy generation...
