Stability is an illusion

Posted 07-18-2010 at 04:46 PM by Mr-Bisquit

I have depression- as is known- and am emotionally unstable.
the actions of going through an attempted suicide become easier and easier everyday.
Let them watch me die. I want the strength to overcome self-preservation.
Thoughts of suicide, animosity, and depression in the Open Source Community? How can this be?

I want to die and not regret, to have someone watch me destroy myself.
I want to sleep and never wake up.

Trouble shooting ALSA on Debian

Posted 07-17-2010 at 10:02 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

First go through the ALSA checklist:
1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) , as root add username audio, where username is your user's name
2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels & toggle jack sense)

--$ alsamixer <Enter> {You will be able to control the volumes and balance through the keyboard.}

Press: Alt+F2

I got a new chipset cooling fan delivered today, and I installed it.
It a 40mm x 40mm x 28mm fan and runs around 7,000rpm.

Normally, without a fan, the chipset temp is between 45 C and 48 C in Summer.

Absolute Linux 13.1.2

Posted 07-17-2010 at 12:22 AM by masinick

I installed Absolute Linux 13.1.2 on Friday evening and I've been using it for a few hours now. It features a nicely customized IceWM lightweight window manager, a slimmed down set of Slackware packages. By default, in place of the usual Firefox, you see the Google Chromium Web browser, which is starting to mature nicely. You can block ads now, and you can add a lot of convenience applications.
