This confusion has me to distraught to type at length about the FI-BA-SS as I was going to:  they're nice earphones with a perk or two over the 334's, but I'd still take the 334's over them if I could have only one.


You seem to be really unsure about the ALO MKIII. I'm rather surprised, everyone else says its a killer amp and right now it's one of the top amps amongst users on the forums

It's actually a big advantage once you get used to it, because you can add a drive and use it to make space at the mount point where you need space.

 

If you really want to know how your physical drives are laid out, you can type "mount" from a command line, or you can look in the message log with dmesg to see what happened at boot up.  But you never really need to do either of those things; just treat the whole thing like one filesystem, and don't worry about physical drives unless you're mounting removable media, in which case the GUI will give you an icon to click on.

So... as of now my experience with the Clip Zip has been good. It read my microSD 64GB card with ease and I liked the size and portability. Paired it with the Leckerton and sounds quite good. Still, as expected, battery life kind of sucks....

 

Looking at a HiSoundAudio Studio V now...

 

BTW, it seems that RMC audio will be selling the Ultrasone Signature DJ for $700!!! I'm interested... but still also waiting for the Sone MDR-1R, and V-MODA m100s...

 

Anyway... sleepy. See ya! ;-)

TBH, he was always good to me, I was the eldest grandchild, but in general he wasn't what I'd call a "nice" person.

I was hoping FTL would be in the humble bundle.  I'll probably get it, but I'm going to wait for either a GOG promo or for it to show up in a future humble bundle.

I'm not criticizing the price or anything like that; I've just got a backlog of about 30 games already, so my sense of urgency is pretty low.

Well, I still have a few humble bundles I haven't yet played. tongue.gif But I think it really is worth it for the $9 (maybe it has risen since its launch). It's just so fun, making your own adventures. Now where are those Humble Bundle emails...

I had something directed to maverickronin as I was catching up, but by the time I reply, I forgotten it. tongue.gif

The thing is its pretty much all a facade which has been very carefully painted on a piece of tissue paper.  Classic Shell and a few obscure shortcuts later and it's all back to normal.  I was actually pleasantly surprised.

If I was planning on using it as my main OS I'd have to find a way around that because...

It usually matters quite a lot where something is physically located because my SSD is a lot faster and a lot smaller than my bulk storage drive.

 

The OS, applications, virtual memory, and other data the requires fast seek and fast read and write speeds goes on the SSD and everything else like music, movies, and pictures goes on the other.

In linux, anything can be done - it's all just a .config file somewhere... tongue.gif
post #878 of 21760

On one notebook, I'm Quad-booting with Win7; Ubuntu; Lubuntu; Linux Mint. But the last three are dedicated for audio only, no general computing. Got MPD/GMPC; DeadBeef; Audacious and several other Linux audio players but rarely launch them this year.

Yep, those darned config files somewhere...

 

Once you find the config files though, they aren't too advanced to play around with. Usually they're already well documented inside the file as well as there being a lot of info on the internet. That's one of the things with Linux - a big chunk of the user base do actually visit linux forums and help each other out. Far from everyone, but a lot of them do.

 

Personally, I've actually kinda sorta abandoned Linux. I got tired of the smallish bugs and the fact that I needed to reboot in order to use Adobe CS, Visual Studio (for C# .NET, which is not supported on Linux, Mono is their hated counterpart), games and so on. I feel I'm too invested on the Microsoft platform to ignore it, and the constant reboots got the better of me one day.

 

Some day, with enough horsepower, I might have Linux virtualized.

 

MaverickRonin:

 

You should definitely try to install the OS on the SSD instead of trying to mount it. When you install the OS, look for the hda/hdb options as one of them should be the SSD. That's where you put all the /-folders (/home and so on).

I never played any Final Fantasy games before so I've taken it upon myself to go through them all, started with the very first one from Japan. I'm playing on my phone and I find it a fitting form factor.

So far so good! It's pretty fun.

I remember starting from VII and liking it, but I never finished it though. VIII I finished a lot less. Then I played X for about 40 hours and came to some sort of boss that just wouldn't die (he had two guys healing him for each strike I made, and one of his own strikes instakilled one of my men). I figured I was a bit ahead of myself trying to fight him, and I kind of got tired of it when I thought about the whole way back to a town. So I did what I actually normally don't do when gaming - I called it quits and never really tried wholeheartedly to play it again. I tried a few times, but never as far as that time.

 

The weird thing is that I loved the games. I loved the graphic art, the atmosphere, and so on. I just kind of liked looking at it more than playing it, I guess. Well, we can't all be JRPG wizards.

Right.  Well obviously.  Maybe you also pissed him off less (not a joke, I've seen wills come down to that a bunch of times).

A fun flash game to pass the hours (especially if you leave your computers on 24/7!)

In that case, you can set it up that way at install time.  Almost everything executable lives in /usr, so you can create a /usr mount point on your SSD.  And then put a swap partition on the SSD.  Either that, or just put / (root) on the SSD and put /home on your spinning disk.  Your pictures, movies, and music will go in home anyway because when you're in user mode that's the only place you can normally write to.
