Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I won't buy a new router unless it has a port of either Open-WRT or DD-WRT.

I think we've established that.

Now we have to get RR to play by the same rules he requires of others.

That will undoubtedly still be going on when you get back.

Have a good trip.

Started '97 with Redhat 6....Fedora....Mandrake....Man driva....Mint.
Then went over to Ubuntu 9.04. Currently I am running 11.04 on the Laptop and 10.10 on everything else.(I want to find the f_ckwit who thinks Unity is a good idea and bitch slap them into next week).
But for me and what I do Ubuntu 10.10/11.04 is perfect but the purists frown at me.
Having said that any Flavour of Linux urinates on the best of (as you say) windwows.
Well, you have some class. Not much brains, but some class.

I agree about Unity. I'm on 12.04 and will probably stay there. Ubuntu is the best package overall, I think. Just needs some tweaking. Get the gnome-session-fallback package and you can bury the Unity desktop. Use the alt and right click to manage the top panel and icons. I use Virtualbox with XP to do anything that requires Windows, such as Blackberry Desktop. Works well. I don't need virtualization turned on in the BIOS to use XP. Uses little space and resources. PlayonLinux is the wine package to get if you have some simpler windows programs to run. I can't live without Irfanview, and it does fine on that.

If you are using 11.04, you might as well go to 12.04, or wait for the new release which should be out next month. Just clone your disk first. One thing I love about Ubuntu is any issues you get, including from upgrades, and there is an answer a Google away.

PuppyLinux and RIPLinux on USB drives have saved my butt many times.

Oh, one thing that makes life with Ubuntu easier. Turn off recommended updates in software sources. Keeps a lot of cruft out.

Well with all of your head injuries and permanent brain damage you will find the cashier at Walmart has higher intelligence than you.

I agree. It shows that Dick only argues one thing and you better not question his beliefs.

Unless otherwise stated, when someone is talking about the constancy of the speed of light, they mean *in a vacuum*.
I know. But outside of a vacuum, light's speed is not constant.

That's all I'm saying.

I'm currently running Mint 13 with Cinnamon on my desktop. Migrated when Ubuntu came out with Unity (I definitely agree someone needs to be slapped-repeatedly). My netbook runs Lubuntu 12.04. I have several distros (Fuduntu, Mageia, Fedora, Gentoo, etc) on virtual boxes just to play around with them and keep up. I went through Linux From Scratch, but didn't keep it as my main system. My router runs DD-WRT and I have a virtual box running Open-WRT. I've also played with Tomato on an old router. I have a partition with Win7 that I never use except under duress.
i use ubuntu 12.04 with Unity and like some parts of it (you need a footstool to slap me)

Wrong again.

Without qualifiers, that statement is patently false.

In any uniform medium, light's speed is constant.

You made the rules.

Now play by them or admit you were wrong.

Virtual particles are nothing but math constructs to handle the error in the original theory.

Sweet pea, if particles can float in and out of existence, then so can you as a relatively intelligent entity. A soul occupying time and space for a while?

Science proves the existence of life beyond death. Read the parable of the mustard seed. Branches are provided for the fowls of the air to roost in. That includes bird brains like you.
