My Ubuntu crashed on upgrade

Posted 11-04-2008 at 05:24 PM by bhupendra

When Intrepid came out, I decided to upgrade from Hardy. The upgrade went smoothly, but on restarting the computer, the grub refused to load. Rather than trying to resolve the problem, I did a fresh install of Intrepid with live CD. It works great! However, on reloading the Vista in Virtual Box, This time Microsoft will not allow me to activate the key. It did before! I have therefore removed Vista altogether. Vista came with my PC. I am not going to waste money on an operating system I hardly use....

Using a Different Office

Posted 11-04-2008 at 06:17 AM by adriantry

<h3>A new office</h3>
In February we purchased our first home. It's beautiful, with wooden cathedral ceilings and slate floors. The yards are filled with lush gardens overlooked by a spacious undercover outdoor area. A generous extension houses a spacious living area with a fireplace. <br>

PigaVision 1.0.1 Released

Posted 11-01-2008 at 01:31 PM by Chargh

I finished my first Linux program yesterday, and what is surprising to me is that it turned out to be a utility. It is a tv-out front-end interface for the XRandR and Xvattr applications. I hope to add some features which I scraped because of time restraints into a 2.0.0 release (Thinking about a release date of Christmas or New Years, but don't quote me on that). Version 1.0.1 still works as a basis for tv-out though, and should help new users get the most out of their video cards.
