@mimoh read well 4ya exams and best of luck
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 8:59am On Dec 03, 2006
@ Mimoh,

NOw that we have a complete download, how do I get em across to you, i'll burn them on 6 cds 2moro.


@ adewale,

hope i won't lose previous downloads when I reformat IDM? I even doubt that cos my opera is finding it difficult downloading again as you can see from there. I hope they won't throttle DAP too by tomorrow cos this night I clocked speeds up to 110 KBps that's close to 1Mbps shey grin

How we go do am na? Ubuntu is still 88% should I risk starting afresh with DAP? dat'll hv 2 be 2moro, unless Grid replies then I can go get it from him and delete the 2.7GB of inconsistent download.

Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 1:34pm On Dec 03, 2006
i don't think re formatting would do any good. Idm is the best as far as am concerned
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 6:55pm On Dec 03, 2006
suggest the way forward abeg
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 9:29pm On Dec 03, 2006
r u there now? have u tried downloading sumtin else without idm and what speed does it give? could the port still be blocked? does grid have d dvd version

It will be crazy for me to allow you look for me. Pls

for collection. Once more thanks a million.

@adewaleafolabi
Thinks am addicted to this thread. Can spend a day without taking
a look at it. Man, thanks for the encouragement. I am just trying
to hit Sun Business Component Developer 5.0 Beta exam, for now
it been offer for free, but when released it going to cost btw $200
to $250. I enjoy beta exams, but the horror is that no materials tackling
the exams as per guide.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 4:36am On Dec 04, 2006

Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 9:36pm On Dec 04, 2006
well the hard disk passed away today what a short life spent. a time 2work and a time 2stop working. In loving memory of my hard disk that opened my eyes towards ubuntu and linux in general. The body is to be shipped to segate hq for replacement my warranty is till 2011. does anyone knows how much it would cost to ship to segate hq, usa ? thanks for your concern
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 10:11pm On Dec 04, 2006
shipping cost should be able to get you a better maxtor hard disk. Seagate will eventually ship you another one which you will need to "sheep" back to them in 2 years.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 8:02am On Dec 05, 2006
thanks jare i think i'll just sell off the pc and go get a new one
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 8:42am On Dec 05, 2006
Don't you hav younger ones? Get a new HDD and use your PC for experiments. Selling off won't be the best idea man. I won't advise.

Please help me get Grid's number. I need to see dude AsAP.

Mimoh, expecting ur number/call.


I had to delete the IDM ubuntu download. I tried SAP but it refused to download. After 30 minutes, it's still searching. I tried all the mirrors including the netherlands, same old story.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Nobody: 9:04am On Dec 05, 2006

Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 5:18pm On Dec 05, 2006
@christino get a new hard disk in naija hell no this hard disk just helped me develop hardo phobia (just kidding) whats the assurance that the new one won't behave like this? and like u said intels get slightly weaker after 2yrs so should i still keep it or let go of it. i tried recovering windows it gave me command line i think i'll just reinstall thanks everyone
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 9:20pm On Dec 05, 2006
Why i advise against selling off is that you lose almost 50%. Your processor becomes noticeably slower actually but if you have younger ones or you need to do experiments, like install Fedora, Unix or even Sun on it and try your hands on other OSes or software that must not be connected to the internet cos of piracy detection e.g. Vista (don't worry the koreans are working hard on Vista and office 2007, they'll be in Otigba before Microsoft releases them to the public, shey they are already with Dell and HP). kiss

I have a P4 at home where I perform "crazy" experiments, but i stopped posting them cos some people adviced it is against the laws of the forum to post "hacker" stuffs here, i did not read the terms of agreement anyway, i just clicked "I AGREE"

Meanwhile there's 9 Pcs of DEll Desktop, 512MB,40GB HDD, 14" LCD (Flat Screen of course) P4 3.0GHz for sale (NGN 50,000). Holla Jamo on this no: 08082092356 cool
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 10:27pm On Dec 05, 2006
well i was considering a laptop and thats because i wud be leaving for skool anytime soon by His grace any way do u know if he has laptops in stock within 50 to 70. about vista its already open to a number me viruses. and i read an article that said dell was disappointed in vista and refused to ship it. it cost those guys 7billion and 5years and those who specialise in making viruses can't just wait to start searching for exploits and prove microsoft wrong once again
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 1:12am On Dec 06, 2006
@christino like what do u mean loose 50% is it money wise or processor power?
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 1:21pm On Dec 06, 2006
@christino i called jamo yesterday and even sent him text to send the ones he had via email am yet to receive the mail from him and is centrino a good or bad option? i wud prefer an amd but that wud be more expensive i think
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 10:25pm On Dec 06, 2006
@ Adewale,

50% money-wise. Vista having loads of viruses, gimme more info o. I know it has lots of security threats though. But i'd like to see what it looks like. (not vista inspirat)

Where's your school? If they don't steal laptops there, then it's a cool option. But i'd prefer a deskie (though upses don't last so long) Centrino is a very good option if the price is okay.

Jamo is now telling me that the Flat screen is not included in the offer undecided but as for lappies, you can get good ones for 50-70k, watch out for Yahoo boys, they offer the best deal in town!

The amd is not so expensive depending on the specs you want. for a second hand, Athlon XP M or the Turion will be a better choice and if you can get a MAC, big boi, na you biko o.

Why are you going to school when schools are just vacating? Shey u dey travel out ni?

@ Grid,

Yet to hear from you.


@ Mimoh

Did you end up at Kirikiri, did not hear from you again, i'll give u a call.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 11:15pm On Dec 06, 2006
@christino i wonder why people tout macs so much i saw a mac book for over 450k i wonder whats so good about mac itself. anyway jare i need mobility and i doubt if they steall laptops at ilorin. well about the vista issue i followed a link i'll try and get it and paste it ok. has jamo sent it to my mail yet?
Re: Ubuntu Linux by mimohmi(m): 1:27am On Dec 07, 2006
@Christino

Man, sorry for the break in communication. Thanks to
PHCN, my phone ran out of power. Pls
will give a call later during the day.
Thanks and God bless.
Re: Ubuntu Linux by adewaleafolabi(m): 1:50am On Dec 07, 2006
don't mind them jare i wasn't able to find that link yet but try googling for vista security flaws
Re: Ubuntu Linux by Christino(m): 9:13am On Dec 07, 2006
For the latest on vista flaws among others, try subscribing to Zdnet blogs, the best in town i can bet.
