    Dual boot install on Compaq 1540 DM

    Hey, Rok.

    Now, this is what I mean when I tell people you know your way around old hardware, mate.

    I gotta confess, though - and please don't take this the wrong way! - I have a job figuring this one out. How DID a 'scooter tramp' get so interested in all this high-tech (low-tech? </lol>) 'junk'?

    (I know you've mentioned in various places about running a 'tuning shop' for bikes'n'stuff..?)

    This looks useful as I know from personal experience how heavy water is when one needs to haul it a few miles/kilometers.

    If too invalid physically to pedal a trike . Have your local mechanic do this to the above bike.

    Of course. If un-prepared. The roads are lined with empty litre bottle trash and string to make a carry canteen. Just make a slip knot and slip over the neck. Make another slip knot on the other end of the string and slip that around the base of your bottle.

    Being a big guy. I prefer 3 litre side of road bottles.

    Strap that across your shoulder and you are golden.

    Above videos are just examples. I have no personal connection to anything I posted in my blog .

    They stole the parts off of my pinchiiiii lawnmower! Cabrones.

    Rube Goldberg Lives!!


    Thankfully, rubism is not dead. I have rubed a few things in my lifetime and some people wonder how these evolve and I tell them that it is a necessity at times to jump in and just make it work. By using innovation that by applying my thought process and using past experience to come up with a solution.

    I like to tinker!

    Dogs were useless last night with all the fire works going off. In fear of their lives so to speak.

    So I brought them all inside for the night.

    My fix has been holding strong since I posted.

    Crazy rules on the Mexican Border. It is why I like it here. Makes life interesting and fun.

    The craftsman mower has also morphed since this blog entry.

    Scrambled eggs with Tamales and Biscuits.

    I like my wifes version better though. With the cheese melted in and the biscuits made with 7up pop, (soda water).

    Bookmark of my unbricking mine in case I run ito this again.
    These things are a tough nut to crack when bricked.

    Too a great extent we can blame Butnut and Mint, and perhaps Suse. They intentionally entice Windows users with the promise of a system that will be just like Windows, but free. In other words, "you will not need to learn anything." When some of those people move to other systems, they expect to plug-and-play. "Read documentation? Are you stupid or insane? That is poor customer service!" Many of the ex-Windows users you refer to are too stupid to understand that possessing a free product does not make them customers.

    What bugs me most is that most of them are not actually ex-Windows users. They want to dual-boot a Linux system with their beloved Windows. And then there are the idiots who want to switch to Linux and install Wine so they can continue using the Windows software they know and love. Defeats the purpose of switching to a different operating system, does it not?

    Yeah, some people just aren't willing to adapt. I'm lucky, I only had about 2 years of using Windows before I discovered Linux - not enough time to get brainwashed into doing everything the Windows way.

    Still testing AntiX 14.

    Procrastinating this change over also. Not many kernels in the wild that support these touchpads out of the box yet and only a few choices on what to run and hit and miss maybe since most
    out of the box installs are C720 specific.

    I be afeared I guess.

    My druthers is to run a frugal install with a persistence sd card
    without using a usb external mouse in the bag when I boot outside of ChromiumOS.

    Then dd to another backup card so if I break it. Just re-clone from the backup card.
    I guess I'll stay patient, since that sounds better than being scared.

    Well, on the backburner for the time being as AntiX 14 development takes priority at the present for a while.

    Working with releases MX-14 and tweaking AntiX 14 is
    time consuming. Lots of one at a time stuff to go through like

    -> Command:
        cp ./usr/share/desktop-defaults /usr/share/desktop-defaults
        chown root:root /usr/share/desktop-defaults -r
    -> Modified:
        Modified to be included in the antiX menu under applications
        These are just some random ones I picked to show the actual antiX submenu and how to make it work.
    -> Command:
        cp ./usr/share/applications/antix /usr/share/applications/antix
        chown root:root /usr/share/applications/antix -r
    and that is just a short part of what I have going on.
