Top 10 Things You Can Upgrade with a Little Electronics Hacking it is a skill to do a good solder joint, it comes with LOTS of practice. so most people who rarely do it will ever get good at it. Bingo. Of course, part of the issue is having a soldering iron at the right temp with a properly tinned tip. Newbies aren't using soldering stations but a cheap iron they got at rat shack (You have questions? We have deer-in-the-headlights... erm... answers!).

A Short Guide To Customizing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (for Beginners) Good guide! Personally I despise Unity, so I am running Ubuntu 13.04 Gnome Edition, which comes with gnome 3, and is awesome!

SExpand If i were you, i would definitely change the Icon theme, please try fanenza. Also ubuntu software center doesnt work to well with LXDE :/ I never use it. I know i use "apt-get install" too ! I am 16 now and hence i do not have the money to buy apps. Correction: "Since most paid apps in Ubuntu Software Center are Open Source"

Get More Energy to Exercise Blood glucose numbers aren't the only pertinent data to record. "Keep a journal, and on the days when you're really fatigued and experiencing pain, look at what you've been doing," says Julie Silver, M.D., a rehabilitation physician and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. For three days, write down what you're doing every half hour, and rate your pain and fatigue level on a 0-to-5 scale (0 = feeling great; 5 = a lot of pain and fatigue).
