The fact that you are in London is all the reason I can think of to apply for a job elsewhere. Having lived there I can speak from experience. Hey, furthest I have applied for a job is Antartica - did not get it but WTH, if you don't try you'll never win. You could also add an addedum to the e-mail,...

Mine resides under /usr/java - I used the self extracting RPM. My Symlink is in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins (I know you have a diff. browser). I'm using FC2 - You?. Putting it in ~/.mozilla will only allow the user who is installing to use it. You want to stick it in the /usr/lib/ area for the plug...

Well at home, I am, and I find everything is working. Without the problem I can't try to fix it - hate these sorts of problems.

If it happens again I'll perfom the checks and let you know.

Thanks.

Hmm, curiouser and curiouser said Frank. So I just got an e-mail from the future wife, and she sent it from her account at linuxmail, from her account on the machine. So maybe there was some kind of security related issue with the Boston lines, or something. Any way I'll go home tonight and see what...

webistes not connecting - not ECN?

Hi guys, Got a nasty, and I'm not sure what the problem is. I run Mozilla on FC 2, and cannot access some sites. However the output of /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn is 0. Which is meant to fix this problem, but it does not. So I don't think it is that. Although in that file /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn.f...

Last time I saw that pic it was attributed as the last photograph taken by Columbia, before it blew-up. I didn't believe it then, as I felt the height was wrong, I believe that shot would have to have been taken at more then 6 miles out, and Columbia wasn't that high. I could be wrong. Also Columbia...

Do you have the exact error message? Have you done a physical check on your machine, make sure you have no loose cables? Does this happen consistently or intermittently. Have you tried any of the later test releases, and gotten the same problem. Check Bugzilla at redhat (http://bugzilla.redhat.com)....

You might want to try Craigslist, if you are anywhere near a city they currently serve, if not you could always ask them to add yours. Best of all it is free and it runs on Linux. Check out the free and computer sections (there are always monitors available). I know you are upstate, but this is the ...

Now they are going to GPL yast, I'll be able to get copies of it for free (I hope), and I can try it. Maybe they will even start to mirror it in ISO form. If so then I'll look at it, but until they do I have too much other stuff to do first.

I personally have an LCD at the moment, but I'm not happy, I may look into a flatscreen soon. I don't think they have the reliability or longevity of CRT. Also I got a couple of pixels that have gone bright, and you have no idea how annoying something that small really is. And cleaning it is proving...

Have you tried degaussing. It should be somewhere in the monitors menu, and I'd strongly suggest you check you don't have magnets anywhere near. I spent time recently trying to suss out this office worker's computer. She had one of those secretary pads that had a tiny little magnet in it and she was...
