Its a temporary measure until I can get a hold of an XP disk, the alternative is a laptop shaped paperweight.

Well the keyboard, trackpad and wireless are back up again so its a good sign so far. Unfortunately nobody can remember the bloody password for the home hub. Banghead

Wine is an emulation program you one track mind pisshead  lol:

If this is a BT Home Hub we're taliking about, the default is admin - unless you've changed it, in which case, do a reset using the button and it will reset to the default.
"Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." 

Well, someone had to say it!

Linux developers are nuts, looking through medibuntu's utility list when this came up  lol:

Quote
Hot-babe is a small graphical utility which display the system activity in a very special way. When the CPU is idle, it displays a dressed girl, and when the activity goes up, as the temperature increases, the girl begins to undress, to finish totally naked when the system activity reaches 100%. Of course, if you can be shocked by nudity, don't use it!

Raspberry Pi are only available from 2 suppliers due to licensing arrangements. Amazon are not able to supply.
Raspberry PIs are on order here ~ for small boys who wish to learn "programming". Delivery times are lengthy at the moment.



Oh and it doesn't just end with the delivery ... there are all sorts of downloads to make it work ~ which will no doubt increase the price considerably by the time they've finished.

Did you get them?  rubschin:

No ~ there seemed to be continuing delivery problems so I gave up...... also the price has rocketed skywards as have the essential "extras".
No longer a cheap toy for the boys. They'd now rather have tablets anyway.  ::)
