First day in the A320 sim. I got everything else figured out except where to put the ignition key.

What's the word I'm looking for… p4wn3d?
Apple Logo. A few years ago, Apple sold me a $4000 computer with a defective graphics chip/logic board. The defective part was the Nvidia 8600M GT GPU, and when it was discovered that the machine was …
A very well produced review of the mighty board that could, if you could just get your hands on one. Main points I took from the review: 1) you get what you pay for: daily desktop operations will be sticky with 90 sec to load GIMP and 10+ secs to get a web browser up; this'll require patience; 2) overclocking will possible, though may not really be worth it; 3) the Pi needs something lightweight, other than Debian, to run with; thankfully the Puppy Linux team is hard at work. Arch will be going into mine, if my Pi ever actually shows up.
Raspberry Pi review. We get our hands on a Raspberry Pi to see if the $35 microcomputer can ever live up to its hype.
Learning the Mass Eff.. I mean Airbus…
While sitting in ground school for the Airbus A-320, I suddenly felt the urge to play me some Mass Effect (yes, still at only #1…). Alas, I actually I have to pay attention to this, and by ‘this’ I mean the aircraft systems, so ME shall wait. But hotdamn was today a boring session. I mean, it’s great to have modern airplanes being taught through a modular computer-based-training concept, but it also raises the question whether doing it in a classroom setting is really worth the money airlines and individuals pay to get an understanding of said aircraft systems. Of course if you are like me, I need the classroom, even if it is only to watch the same module presentation I’ve watched on the laptop at home. See, at home, I have all these distractions, like Mass Effect…
This would be more impressive had he run Mint on the MB Pro. How about Arch Linux on on MB Pro [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook]? Even better.
After being seduced by the MacBook Pro, product reviewer Tom Henderson replaces it (initially) with the Lenovo X120e running Linux Mint. Here’s how.

I am compelled to try this. Of course, instead of a game, I could just put the time in to make my current real distro to, you know, work.

18 out of 20. I think. I feel, how do you say, old?
As electronics evolve, so do the sounds that go with it — and many of the dings, beeps, and hisses burned into our brains will hold no emotional connection to the teens of tomorrow. Some of them may …
