I noticed that the cpu scaling was a little slow (well programs were crashing before ubuntu increased the Mz) so tried to use the cpu-freq applet but they somehow the big wigs have decided that this is a bad idea! So to re-enable it use the command
“sudo chmod +s /usr/bin/cpufreq-selector”

OK, so my laptop has been playing up recently (due to the age of the Ubuntu install and the number of times that it has been upgraded/changed/modified). So I decided to put the old HD in an do an fresh install. However, it seems that the new live disk is more demanding on system resources and I could no get it to install on my P3 850Mhz laptop. So I tried the alternate install and although text based it work a treat. Just took a little longer as there are a lot more chooses to be made. So no more graphical installs for me… we until I manage to save up enough money to get a shiny new laptop anyway.

I thought that I need to keep a list of lyrics that make me smile every time that I hear them. So from now on when ever I hear a good lyric I’m going to add it to this post.
“It’s you that I adore;
you’ll always be my whore..” – Smashing Pumpkins
