Off the edge of despair

Sorry it's been so long since I've made a blog post. Hope you are enjoying your new year, A lot of things have been happening since I last posted. Going to post more often though, so I'll try to keep it up, bi-weekly at least. I've been doing an awful lot of gaming and other activities. New things have come into my life and things have left. It's been a mixed bag of emotions. read more »

Been quite occupied with stuff including lots and lots of PS3 gaming. Got a few new games (well for me). I bought Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Quantum of Solace and Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, of course all on the PS3. read more »

Everything I do

Installed Kubuntu 9.04 with KDE 4.2 last week. Didn't get off to a great start with it. Something went wrong and it crashed but it since hasn't happened again. Maybe an update fixed it. Happy I'm glad I upgrade. KDE 4.2 is so much better than 4.1 and the version of Kubuntu is much faster. I've noticed suspending to disk and waking up is quicker. It's much more stable too and has some great new features. Big Grin Got all my stuff back up and running okay. Had some issues with the laptop mouse which I vaguely remember dealing with on 8.10. I don't personally use the laptop mouse because it hurts my finger. When the laptop mouse is touched, this weird error would disable the left mouse button on both the laptop and a USB mouse. I just edited xorg and disabled the laptop mouse entirely and haven't come across any further problems since. read more »

Laptop is working again. Was the newest version of the kernel. It is a known problem with the Acer Aspire One (and a few other laptops I believe) which stops the network card functioning correctly in Kubuntu. Glad I didn't give up hope and just reverted to wiping and starting over. Never thought that that was the cause, but I did try everything so I expected the problem to be crazy. Tried uninstalling knetworkmanager and hard coding the network settings in /etc/network/interfaces. After a total of eleven days in the cold I didn't really get up to much web wise. Just did some general browsing while finding a fix. Went on my Wii for a little while but hated the fact it doesn't have tabs on the Internet Channel (Opera), instead used by brother's laptop for a little bit. read more »

I've had to move to Acer Aspire One since the the laptop by brother gave me not too long ago was having some issues. They were different coloured lines going vertically up the screen which become very annoying. Not too sure if the slow speeds are to do with KDE4 being awkward or just the laptop itself getting old. KDE4 started out great on my Acer, but not that good now. Saturday I was unable to connect to the internet entirely. Some process just died (which launches the connection) and I'm still yet to fix it. Sad Seems to be a huge bug affecting a lot of users. Logged back on to my old laptop and it just did the same thing. :S They just did it all of a sudden! Before all that crap happened, there was a few things left to do until everything was back to how I usually have it. Sad I'm using GNOME instead until it gets fixed. Quite impressed that all my KDE applications work in it. Big Grin read more »
