Hello everybody,
All is quiet in the front! :) Where has everybody gone?
Well, since the second beta version of Cassandra is running smoothly, there is nothing much to talk about at present.
Some 'bugs' in Mintinstall that are minor, and suggestions for some artwork; that's all we can talk about.
Lots of people are still downloading this version. And many requests for additional software in the Mint Software Portal have been expressed by the community.
Remember? This is a 'community project'. Send in your requests before the final stable edition is released.

It won't be long before the stable release is out.
What are we to expect after Mint 3.0 Cassandra? It may be another pleasant surprise. :)

Greetings, your friend,

Hello friends,
I thought I might give Mint a hand by reminding you that it is a community project supported mostly by donations.
We thank the developers for sacrificing their spare time to give us the pleasure of using such a wonderful Linux OS.

The following is a copy from Linux Mint DONATIONS:

Donating to Linux Mint

You can help by making a financial contribution to the project. Thanks to advertisements and your donations the Linux Mint project can afford to be hosted on a dedicated server, to advertise on other websites, to purchase and test new hardware (graphic cards for instance) and to give more time to the development team.


Greetings, Blogger

Hello everybody,

There has been much talk around about METALINKS; a new method of fast and more reliable downloading.
Unfortunately, not much is available in the form of a How-To. We can find a great deal of information by searching with Google, but what is needed here is a simple step-by-step tutorial for the average Linux user. I am sure most of you will agree.

I have put in a request for this in the SUGGESTIONS & FEEDBACK for Casandra beta 014.
I hope that someone knowledgeable will take the time to offer his services.

I would like to thank him in advance.

Greetings,the Blogger

ADDICTION
Who said that Mint was an addiction
Indeed he made a sure prediction
A cure I sought to no avail
And everything I tried would fail

The Mint Cafe detoxification sessions were abandoned hopelessly. Very few people showed up in the Detox classes . And those who tried the formula at home were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
It's hopeless! Once you get a good taste of that refreshing Diabolo Menthe, with some Stoli added to it, you're done! There is no antidote I'm afraid.

It was also said that this intoxication with Mint would soon die out; unless it lasted until August! Don't ask me what August has to do with it; maybe the heat? Or perhaps the flies or mosquitoes?
Cassandra predicted a very hot summer this year, and mutated, extra large flies. :)

So cheer up my friends! At least we've got until August.

Hello friends,
All is quiet in the Western Front. :)
I wonder if the Mint Café is still open. I miss that Diabolo Menthe with Stoli added.
You see, no matter what I have tried in order to detoxify myself, I confess I'm still hooked. :)

Well, it's no use! I gotta go to the Mint Café soon.

The pretty Witch is here at last!
An incarnation from the past
She's here for many hearts to steal
With all her goodies and her sex-appeal

She's lovely and she's full of charm
She never really means no harm
And have no fear that she wont stay
No matter what some people say

A wondrous myth will always last
An incarnation from the past


So welcome home Cassandra Gold
That's what you truly are I'm told


Greetings, the Blogger

Well, I found her, but she is very slow coming to me. What did you sedate her with so she wouldn't run away? :evil:

CASSANDRA'S CURSE

Cassandra's prediction
For the worst affliction
To fall on those who want her doom
Their end will be the darkest tomb
In Hades they will churn and burn
In Hades they will twist and turn

Pandora will unleash the plague
And they will run to hide in vague
To him who's not an avid friend
Pandora's ills will be the end
Pandora's box will throw the curse
None other could there be so worse

Image
MEDUSA


Medusa will unleash her wrath
To him that stumbles in her path
There is no mercy for the man
Who is the victim in her plan

What is Bianca Green? I asked for it at the liquor store and they gave me a blank stare. Windows users, obviously.
