I got a good chuckle about someone literally installing a real live nautilus on their Linux Mint computer. To be honest that would make a good art challenge. Hmmm... I wonder if posting challenges would be appropriate for the art section of the forums. I might go over and take a peek. :mrgreen:
Have you tried turning it off and on again, then hitting it repeatedly? :/

"After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the English newspapers read: "English archaeologists have found traces of 200-year-old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Scots." One week later, "The Kerrymen," a southwest Irish newsletter, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Tralee, Paddy O'Droll, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Paddy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Ireland had already gone wireless."

WIRELESS BLUES

Ha,Ha, Ha !....... :lol:
Very funny Richy.
And I've been trying to go wireless on this ancient laptop that I'm trying to revive! :( No luck with Wicd.
It won't work with the Debian based Xfce4 desktop though it's OK with Ubuntu based distributions.

What frustration! :x

Cheers, old boy!
