JASPER LIVES!!!


But now I need to go buy another power strip. I'm not keeping Jasper and his monitor plugged straight into the wall forever.

Also, Lilly will now use WiFi for her internet connection. I needed the LAN cable for Jasper since I completely lost the secondary antenna for his old wireless card.

But, now that I think about it, that wireless card may have induced high CPU usage over the old Intel network card, so I guess wired ethernet it is.


I then hit another roadblock.... Jasper needs a mouse. The only extra mouse I had was a cheap ball mouse that barely worked. I have a variety of wireless mice, but for one, I doubt they would work well since the transmitter is somewhat far from my mouse pad, and secondly, I misplaced the USB transmitters that go with the mice. Sad

I really need to keep those things in a place I can remember.

Anyway, I brought out my Apple Mighty Mouse and will use that for Lilly, while her old mouse is now Jasper's mouse.

Maybe I'm too concerned with squeezing as much frames per second as possible out of Dongwa, but well, in FPS games, the smoothness can be a determining point on whether you make it through alive...

Im intrigued by OpenBox. I found out that I left Hazel's old 20gb hard drive inside Jasper, so I have a free hard drive I can use for Linux dual boot.

Unfortunately, nearly all big name Linux distros (Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, Debian) are using the latest versions of various desktop environments that bring Jasper to his knees. I may try CrunchBang.... Or dig out my old MandrakeLinux 9.1.4 disc. Tongue


I just found out that one of Jasper's RAM sticks could be starting to fail. Running Memtest86+ right now, and there was one failing address during test 3. Sad

Tomorrow, I plan on reseating the RAM and cleaning out dust. If that doesn't help, then it's time for that trial-and-error method of finding the bad RAM stick. But seeing as how all the RAM is nearly 10 years old, should I just replace all the RAM?

Actially, I installed Xubuntu, then quickly figured out how to convert it into Lubuntu, then convert it to Openbox + Tint2 from there. What I think you could try is install Lubuntu, then use Lubuntu's preinstalled Openbox manager to get to the desktop, then invoke a terminal and install Synaptic from there. Then, from Synaptic, grab Tint2 and other apps that you may use.

As for the RAM, well, your call, but personally, I'd just try to find the problematic bar and just replace that instead of buying a whole new set of RAM.

Wow, 93 titles for Linux on Steam already. And the Steambox has been confirmed. And Counter Strike Source and Team Fortress 2 for Linux has entered release (read: I could actually join release servers on the Linux client now). More reasons to ditch Windows Tongue

Did that particular claymation show have a red cat and a white cat perhaps?


Also... I found out about LXDE. PCLinuxOS has a pre-built LXDE edition, and it looks light enough as well as good enough. Will try this one out.

Well, what constitutes as cats, yes it does. Weird stuff. Then again, it wasn't that clear because apparently my IPTV stream was being throttled (I guess the censorship server was a little stuck up last night, which is much better than not being able to get a connection at all I guess).

As for PCLinuxOS... okay.

That weird claymation program is "Mio Mao", and it's on BFTV here. It's strange yes, but it's amazingly well done.

Ok. I don't think BFTV Asia has this tho...

Looks like the Opera web browser is going to switch to WebKit instead of using their longtime "Presto" engine.

This means that Opera will be essentially the same as Chrome, Chromium, Safari, or any other browser that uses WebKit. The only differences are the UI and perhaps the feature set.

Presto is what made Opera different from the rest, and is what made it unique.
