Greetings from Cyprus.

Postby Labarum » Sun Feb 27, 2011 1:29 pm

I haven't used Linux for eight (?) years - I played with SUSE Linux for a bit.

What a difference in that time! I have Linux Mint in use - well, three hours use. It's snappy, even from a USB stick.

I am no stranger to Firefox and Thunderbird, and my IMAP mai is hosted by www.fastmail.fm - has been for years.

Open Office Writer I am just as likely to use as MS Word. I don't have much use for the other stuff.

I am into computer audio and run two Squeezeboxes and a Beresford Caiman DAC.

http://www.beresford.me/main/main.html

For the HiFi buffs the DAC drives directly a refurbished Quad 405-2 power amp into a pair of large German speakers M Quart 980s.

I have recently retired from the British Army and now spend most of the year in Cyprus. My only TV access is via BBC iPlayer which I run by VPN back to a UK agent. Workis in Windows 7.

I have raised a question elsewhere on the forum about HDMI sound. I need to sort that before even trying to get iPlayer working in Linux.
