That string of Windows failures (and related Miscellaneous failures) indicate the appearance of the dreaded Blue Screen of Death. I’ve highlighted the last appearance, on October 14. Note that the Failure Detail section below lists the error code, 0x000000D1, and examining the blue screen itself shows that the error is triggered in (although not necessarily caused by) a Windows system file called Afd.sys, which is related to networking. As you can see from the chart, this string of errors started on October 1, and these hard crashes were occurring with alarming frequency by October 10. Ran hardware diagnostics. And still the crashes continued. After about five minutes of research, he came back with the answer. The results? And the moral? I have to give props to HP for its support as well.

Turn Your Ubuntu Intrepid Into Mac OSX Leopard This is an updated version of my previous post Turn Ubuntu Hardy into Mac OSX. That post was written six months ago and many things have changed during this period of time: release of Ubuntu Intrepid, newer Mac4Lin theme, better globalmenu applet etc. As such, I have decided to rewrite this tutorial for the Intrepid platform. Disclaimer: This tutorial was based on Ubuntu Intrepid and Mac4Lin RC1 themes. I don’t guarantee that it will work on other distro or other version of Ubuntu. Download the Mac4Lin themes and extract it to your Home folder. Preparing the installation path Next, in your Home directory, press Ctrl + H to reveal all the hidden files. Installing the Mac4Lin themes Open a terminal, type in: cd Mac4Lin_v1.0_RC1 sh This will install the Gnome themes (window border and icons), change the wallpaper and the panel background. After the installation, your desktop should look something like this: Installing the AWN dock sudo apt-get install xcompmgr Install AWN

64 Things Every Geek Should Know - The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A techie geek is usually one who knows a little about everything, and is thus the person family and friends turn to whenever they have a question. 1.
