Re: The Recovery Partition on Rock's Laptops

1. A copy of the original setup OS and software setup when the system was built. 2. Pressing F10 at boot leads you to the options. 3. See 2 4. Only you can decide this. 5. It isnt useless and I have used it in the past. However as I have my own disk imaging software (Acronis Trueimage) I prefer to w...

Re: THANK YOU

While Nick might be ultimately responsible that is incredibly harsh Tris. Talk about kick a man when he is down.

Anyway the forum is great guys and has come on a lot since John first mooted the idea to me on the Whatlaptop forum. Well done to John and Steff for stepping up to the plate so well.

Re: Chris' XPS M1330 Review

Chris, Does the m1330 have Bluetooth or IRDA? I was just looking at dell.co.uk and spec'ing up an Ubuntu loaded m1330 :) I didnt bother with the Bluetooth as I never use it. I dual boot my M1330 with Vista and Ubuntu and use Virtualbox in Ubuntu to run XP to save me rebooting or using Wine to use a...

Re: Rechargeable batteries

Thats more than the cost of a plug and play kit.

Do you already have a plug and play kit? if so just get 2 proper 360 batteries.

Re: Techpond logo

Could do a pond with a robot fishing and a laptop or other piece of tech snared on his line.


Or a pond with the top half of a fish sticking out looking like he is going to type on a laptop with his fins.

How complex/simple does it need to be?

Re: Wireless internet in Ubuntu on a Pegasus 670

mmmm.... I haven't looked at this WUBI installer thingy really as I upgraded from the last version. Heron hasn't given me any problems on the 650, even with the dual GPUs... just detects a change and deals with it. I used wubi to test out a beta of Kubuntu with KDE4 and it worked really well. It ba...

Re: Wireless internet in Ubuntu on a Pegasus 670

Looking at the screenie you posted you can see it is detecting the card. If you right click the network icon you will see if wireless networking is enabled as it will have a little tick next to it. If you left click the same icon it will display if there is a wireless network available and you just ...

Re: Virtualisation advice.

Been having a chat on UbuntuForums and apparently as the virtualiztion process isolates the OS from the hardware it will definitely request activation of the OEM license (which is not allowed by MS) which is a pain in the neck. Looks like I might shrink Vista down to a much smaller partition for off...
