Figure most have seen this already but in case some hasn't thought I'd post it. Guessing this would be the area to do so.

I see that on the side panel towards the bottom Ubuntu is also dropping the 32bit Desktop Images.

I hate spammers when they leave recorded calls. Usually when I get one that's live asking if I'm in front of my computer I know something is coming and I play them. Had one actually get totally pissed at me and was yelling. His fault. Asked what keyboard I'm using. So I told him that it has a Windows key on it. Oh how happy he was. Bout as happy is a hog in a mud hole. So I let him go through his spill. Telling unhuh I got that part done. Each step gets him more excited.

Finally I got tired. Told him I didn't see something he was asking about. Kept telling me that I had to see it. Told him that I didn't see it. Kept after me saying I had done something wrong. Told him no, that I'm using Linux. Called me a liar saying I couldn't be using Linux. Asked why not. Said I told him I was using that keyboard and I wouldn't be able to use it with anything but Windows. He was getting hot telling me I lied. Told him that I can use any pc/laptop, any monitor, and any damn keyboard I wanted to. He still kept at it. Finally I told him that he needed to take my number off his call list and also when he makes those calls he need to have his shit together because he didn't know what the hell he was talking about. Uh, for some reason he was yelling even louder and slammed the phone down. 😇 😆

Then early this week I get a recorded message saying that they were from MS and my Windows License had expired. I needed to call them at this number they left. Damn. At least give me another live person to mess with their heads. 😉

Little ol wine drinker(damn used to be anyways) me. Good to be home so to speak. We've always had a good time in the past here with supporting and even 'Thread Hijacking', hope that continues to be the case here again.
Those who knew me from the old knows that I'm a misplaced Southern boy stuck in the West now. Hence at times the snow man icon I'd use at times that wfg used to get me about. Still have the old rig I was using back then for my desktop. Old but going strong.

Thinking on getting me a new printer. This one is okay but ink is getting outrageous for it now. Old HP PSC750. So was looking at the wireless ones. Figure will have to plug the usb into the pc(still running that old HP Pavilion) and then setup laptop. Now, I'm wondering on the setup. At the moment with the setup I'm using now it's hooked up to pc with a parallel cable and I need to have pc on to be able to hook up with laptop. Now, if I get a wireless printer will that still be same situation or just leave printer on and be able to print to it w/o the pc being on. I know stupid question but I've never messed with that before and want to be clear in mind on how that will work being connected to the pc like that.
