Bucket of worms

Posted 05-02-2010 at 10:08 PM by Mr-Bisquit

Michael, one of my brothers, is a few years younger than me and this concerns him when he was five.
Being extremely industrious for his age, Mike saw an opportunity in making money but didn't know how to go about doing it.
" Dig up some worms, " the old man told him, "and sell them for money,"
Michael took hold of this idea and decided to fill a five gallon bucket with worms and dirt. Taking his wares, he lugged it from house to house with no sales whatsoever....

Finished, finally.

Linux is for elder machines. Naturally, the term "elder" in this truism is to be understood as "less capable", not as "antique". The fact that any machine is less capable when facing a proper task makes things interesting.

Having Athlon 3500+ processor and R690 integrated video, my proper task is the 1080p video. My experience with it suggests that

Upgrade to Lynx went smoothly. It looks great. The awful orange is gone . Replaced by Purple. So far everything seems ok. More about my experience of this latest version later.
The only thing that did not work was Gwibber. But today Gwibber works. Hopefully it will also work tomorrow and day after.....
Everything else seems to work and it is faster.
