I'll have one of those also, please!

I've been away for a while, visiting the Squeegee islands (it's very humid there).

About to install Mint 16 Cinnamon, which looks very nice!

Hello Ken,
Glad to see you back. :)
I am using Mint 16 Cinnamon since the RC edition. It's great!

Cheers

Just visited tuxmachines for the latest news. I noticed the slogan: Do you waddle the waddle? Seems a little unfortunate to me, because it is so tempting to misquote it as Do you waddle the twaddle?

No disrespect to the tuxmachines team - I think it's the best source of Linux news out there - but hey, this is Mint Cafe isn't it? :D

Just had another thought (before my brain shuts down for the weekend). While I was over at Trisquel trying figure out how to get 1920x1080 screen resolution on a Trisquel 6.0 64-bit installation (which doesn't work for me), I thought I'd better read through all their forum before posting a question. I noticed they have a Troll Hole section. It made me think we should have one over here so that the moderators can move certain threads there instead of just locking them. We could call it the Troll Cave just to appear original.

hi all,
not being a tecki, i am proud of myself this afternoon, i have managed to upgrade the kernel on one of my laptops without screaming for help, Now ALL my 8011=11N dongles work, yes that includes the latest 300mb tp-link which i could not get any of my putters to recognise, its only showing a 54% connection, but i have now discovered my router is only 150mbs still its now a lot faster than my old 11 g dongles which i can now relegate to the spares box.. tomorrow ...well it's chance my arm and update the other4 puters in the house... I still have one problem device which i dug out the other day, and that's my DVB-t dongle if anyone has experience on getting one working help would be appreciated

Grats, but I refuse to answer that question for the same reason as Douglas Adams. Sorry. (Is it a satellite TV card or something?)
