  5. Hey, stopping by with a quick one for whoever is Linux conversant- (If you were wondering, other areas of life have been keeping me occupied/away from here...but I'm doing okay, so there you go.) I recently installed SUSE 10.1 via FTP, migrating from SUSE 10.0. I've noticed the RAM usage in 10.1 is markedly higher than it was in 10.0, to the point that I can't really run more than a terminal and YAST. i suspected a memleak, I've tried to renice and reset all the priorities on everything except for the kernel and X to 20, and it's still not, apparently there's a memleak somewhere i

  8. Ok, my computer has been acting funny lately and I've been combing over things to pinpoint any problems. Aside from a Java trojan, not much has come up. I did a scan with this website program called Housecall by TrendMicro that works well and is free. Something came up that was labeled AWS or something, and it was unnamed so I did a search for it. A while later, I started learning about Viewpoint Media Player. This is secretly installed with several programs, the biggest infiltration is with AIM. With AIM, the program is not only installed secretly, but upon removal it is automatically re-inst

  12. Spanish Computer A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. "House" for instance, is feminine: "la casa." "Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz." A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?" Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that "computer" should definit
