  1. I purchased this set yesterday at sears. Panasonic TH46PZ80U Anyway have little experience with plasma sets and none with panasonic products at all, and I am concerned about burn in regarding station logos and aspect bars. I read that sets have protection for this but couldn't find it in the manual or in the menus, or is it perhaps an automatic thing? Thanks in advance. Also Any other pointers on how to get the most out of this set would be appreciated as well.
  2. We all have herd of podzilla (ipod linux), but many are not aware that there is another OS for not only ipods but many other players as well. Why use another OS many may ask. Well the reason is simple or should I say reasons. For my ipod for example I can play my mp3s (or just about any other non drmed audio file formate on the planet need I say flac, or ogg). I do not need itunes and can simply drop or copy the files I want to my ipod from either linux or windows explorer. I can also boot into the apple OS if I prefeer to sync with itunes for podcasts I subscribe to. I can also easily remove
  3. My vote goes to k3b as well. My only beef against k3b is that there is no support for burning sequential cd/dvds for backing up a large data base, of music or photos for example.
  4. Hi everyone, back to firefox. My prefered method is to install FF directly from mozilla to either your home directory or to say perhaps /opt. When I get everything as I like I open my home folder (kde) enable hidden files, copy the .mozilla folder and repast it back into my home folder, when prompted about overwritting I rename it to .backupmozilla. If I ever have trouble saving my bookmarks renaming the backup to .mozilla overwriting the corrupt folder when prompted, usually fixes it for me. One can even replace the /opt/firefox if needed. Be sure you uninstall the FF version installed by y
  5. An interesting foot note concerning the ReiserFS file system. I recently read that the developer, can't remember his first name, any way Mr. Reiser may be facing murder charges concerning his missing wife. At least according to linux pro magazine. I don't know what effect this will have on future developement of the system though, which is my point for posting this.
  6. I here ya dude I love MM myself it is a great music organizer. Sad thing is there used to be linux support from them mac as well but not any longer. Your only hope is to purchase crossover office or sedaga. Sorry.
  7. You can get this sometimes if permissions are not right for your FF profile. And as you have found deleating causes FF to create a new profile.
  8. Your welcome hitest, always a pleasure to be here.
  9. In Flanders Fields By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
  10. "Scratches head", I usualy just read the system requirements, or go boldly and install. Lol must be just the maverick in me.
  11. What also amazes me is how we were lucky enough to live to our present age. Lol think about it, we talked to strangers, we rode our bikes with out helmets, were never placed in car seats or wore seat belts, I was given wet asbestos to model with in grade 1 class that i later was told to sand smooth with pipe cleaning cloth, I helped dad paint when I was ten with led based paint, walked to school across a busy highway, didn't get to stay at home on stormy school days (walked in the blizzard across same highway), if i cam home and told dad I was spanked by mr so and so for throwing stones at his
  12. Now this is realy cool, and another reason why the folks at mandriva and pclinux are winning the first place in my heart. With this app (available currently only for pclinux and mandriva) you can create a live/install cd of your own system containing your favorite apps, home directory, settings, everything. And you can reuse it has an install cd for backuo or simply a portable system. There is also the option to create simply a restoration cd. Yes this has been possible with knoppix and others, but it involves a bit of hoop jumping to do, with this app and distro you can do it with just one si
  13. Go with amarok, or for a more itunes look and feel try juk. Banshee has promise though still new has some bugs to iron out.
