After visiting again with The Demolished Man, I knew that I was at least as excited about re-reading novels I'd already hit as I was about reading ones I knew nothing about. Case in point, the Hugo Winner for 1959, James Blish's A Case of Conscience.

I know that I read this as a teenager. I can even remember the cover of the paperback: Father Ramon Ruiz Sanchez looking contemplative, standing next to one of the dinosaur-like "Lithians" who holds a small vase. That's really...

grub cannot access LVM partition anymore

Now I cannot boot opensuse anymore!

I have learned how to access the LVM partition, thanks to...

Linux is so hard to understand and to switch to because Linux users dont want to help with the transitioning of windows users. They like to think they are a select few who understand the inner working of the computer world.

We all started out at the same place; not knowing anything about Linux. Then we learned, what seems like second nature for us
