    Webcam Driver Help

    Wondering if anyone can help, though its pretty quiet here... I picked up one of these last year (an MD80 spycam clone) shortly after getting my Pandora but after exhaustive searches, found all the linux forums at a loss and disclaiming that no drivers exist for it. A check a few weeks...

    The "is Craigix A Reptilian Thread?"

    Afterall he works with a dragon and is pretty cold blooded, loves chilled vodka, suns himself on roofs and despite shedding his skin in a head swap on a fairy, still had bags of appealling notions to our innermost desires for gadgets Ergot poisoning aside, I vote that Craigix is clearly an...

    Easy Desktop Icon Management

    There's been a number of threads lately about new ideas for desktop management, alternate frontends etc with all manner of brilliant ideas expressed and their pros and cons debated and if they are worth pursuing but I've seen it mentioned at least a few times, that some folk find it kinda...

    News For The Joystick Fans

    Probably common knowledge but I thought I'd share this one. My prior test of this failed as my hub must have been dodgy and the companies website at the time seemed to have no mention of linux support, so I'd figured it was a no go. However its good enough for the CIA and for you... Here's...

    Portable Hdd Deal Heads Up

    Tesco direct are currently selling the WD Elements 250gb portable hdd at just £35 and it works just fine with the Pandora. http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.206-0507.aspx No big shock as smaller ones in the range do aswell. Looks like it´ll halve battery life but I was gonna buy a mere 30gb one for...

    Usb Draining Battery Despite Charger?

    I hooked a bunch of stuff up via hub the other night, whilst the unit was on the mains on a full battery to see what was recognised. Left it like that overnight by accident and in the morning she was rebooting and then no more. The battery was totally flat. After disconnecting the usb hub, some...

    Lost The ´log Off´ Dialog Box

    EDIT: SOLVED. Simply delete XFCE-4 folder from home>username>applications>settings>xfce-4 and reboot. Everything custom will need re-doing. When I did some deliberate low power battery shutdown tests, to re-create the screen brightness bug (I couldn´t), she threw a curveball instead and I...

    Chasing Ghosts : Beyond The Arcade

    You'll no doubt have caught this film from 2007 but I was really pleased to find it the other day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NFsezCNZV4 Such a trip across retro gaming history, just a little before my time, such a change to today's ethics, today's games. Really shows where retro once...

    Musing About Pandora

    Enjoying a cool glass in the sun (yesterday) from my garden, I wrote from serial no 45, that is a thing of sheer beauty, for which I am already smitten. I would give up lent for this and happily do bird to protect it from muggers, which was a unique selling point for me, as carrying a laptop...

    Toggling Wifi Icon?

    With the dropping wifi issue and it's remedy to toggle the wifi on/off from the settings menu, I wondered if a taskbar/desktop icon could be created for this, to make it a one click task rather than at least ten steps? I cant code as I'm a linux newbie but I wondered if the same desktop icon...

    Re: Minimenu From Xfce Via Icon Tweak

    I tried out the tweak to create a desktop icon for minimenu and it does as it says, however when you attempt to revert back to XFCE via 'Switch GUI' & it always reboots to minimenu. If you leave the 'switch GUI' dialog open, then XFCE can be used via the other 'workspace', presumably with...
