I've been running Linux on quite a variety of devices for about two decades now. Never succeded to install it on a table though. :wink:

Apart from that: I'll second the advice of Sustainablitzer and Link.

Wowtrees! That's actually really literally "installed on a table".

Is this a typo?
The upgrade runs pretty smoothly (or if it doesn't, you can force it to quit easily).

or is it meant literally?
The upgrade runs pretty smoothly (or if it doesn't, you can quite easily force it run smoothly).

If the latter, how is that possible?
  If the former, are you saying I can downgrade back to Windows 8.1?

This isn't for me, it's for my husband, for whom I serve as IT — I personally avoid Windows to the greatest extent possible whilst not alienating my contacts and others in my society.

I like the idea of calling it "GNU/Linux". GNU was first and the superscript is kind of TEXish.

I stand corrected... would not recommend this table for Junebug though. It seems to be a bit too computery.

The automated process of upgrading from 8 to 10 runs pretty smoothly (or if it doesn't work properly due to a rare error, you can use a different method which also runs pretty smoothly).

You can also downgrade within a month.

I've found more poems, haikus this time, on page 310. These are the first original poems here (the one on page 283 was edited in later, I have not reached its actual appearance yet.

BE VEWY VEWY QUIET, I'M HOTDOGGING OWGANISED SANDS

Postby Link » Mon Aug 10, 2015 12:35 am UTC

Nooooo, my SB save somehow got m*starded! I just reached infinite glass and ran the Vacuum Cleaner for a bit, but when I turned it off again I got Mustard Sand. Clicking makes it jump to 0, but it goes back to Mustard on the next mNP. Locking all Ceilings fixes it, but as soon as I buy one of them back, it becomes Mustard again. Image

Well, I guess I could get a netbook and use it as is on this trip, and then install Linux later. Right?
Yep. :) You can also set up a dual boot, where you can choose between Windows and Linux when booting.

And is there a certain kind of netbook I need to get? Can I use this tablet that I have, or can I not do it because it has Windows and will try to bite me if install another OS?
Tablets can be a bit tricky; it really depends on the model. Historically, Linux on leopardless devices has been pretty tricky, and most distributions aren't really optimised for that yet. There are indeed some tricks Microsoft tends to employ to prevent people from installing other OSes on mobile devices, and I'm not exactly sure how to get around that. Most netbooks should work fine, but I'd recommend one with a CD drive. AFAIK Chromebooks are a bit tricky to get a proper Linux installation on. The closer to a classic laptop, the better, in terms of molpishness of installation.

There isn't really any need for a CD drive, given that it's just as easy (and maybe quicker) to make a bootable USB memory stick, which can be used to trying out Linux and then install it.
The tricky part (for me) was forcing it into the safe graphics mode so it would actually display anything properly. Well, the tricky part wasn't doing that, but discovering that it was what I had to do.

Edit: ninja'd on that first part, that's what I get for blindposting.
Edit: how do I use Linux instead of Android on my Samsung tablet? (I guess the answer is that I can't if I want to access all the stuff I've purchased through the Google Play store)

A prescient question by Caswallon far back in the pastpages, IKEA-related:

I speculate it is a 'barrier' to the sea like the little one Megan built at the shoreline, in case the level rises that high.

That really doesn't work well unless their world is really two-dimensional, but we've seen these characters seem to be unclear on how stuff works.

I don't think you understand: The water will never rise that high. Look at Megan. She's rebuilding the sandcastle, isn't she? Now, they both know that the water is rising, but they don't know how far it will rise. If Megan was unsure of whether or not the water will overtake the sandcastle, why would she waste time rebuilding it?

Because Megan is continuing to build, she is confident that the water will not destroy the sandcastle.

At least, this is my theory.
Because nobody's ever confident and wrong at the same time. :wink:

But think about it. Megan admitted that she doesn't know how the sea works. If she doesn't know how it works but continues to build, she must know something about the sea, possibly how high it can rise.
What I am more worried about, is if the IKEA/Hardware Store/Lumberyard/Really well stocked corner market located to the left of the frame has flood insurance?

Hopefully it did, and it was insured by the Beanies or some other organization that didn't itself get Zanclean'd.

Last Time I checked (probably over a yip ago; I don't recall, exactly), making a bootable Linux USB stick usually required some extra steps, making it somewhat less molpish for a beginner -- though I suppose things could've gotten more streamlined since then.

Eternal Density wrote:Edit: how do I use Linux instead of Android on my Samsung tablet? (I guess the answer is that I can't if I want to access all the stuff I've purchased through the Google Play store)

If Google Play Store applies DRM (which I imagine it does), then yeah, you'll lose those things. If not, you may be able to dig around to find the original files so you can make a backup. You should be able to run most Android apps in an emulator on Linux. Or do as I did (on my phone) and install Linux in a chroot on Android. :)

I guess there must be a way not to have this here, right? But I can't delete them out of my post, or they won't exist to be in my sig. Ch*rp

See, I knew someone would look here, even though I said "Nothing to see here." :mrgreen:

Now I'm confused. I'm sure I have seen these images in your signature many Times. And now this is the redundant spoiler which holds them? They were loaded from the future (which is now our presentpast) all the Time? :shock: Baobabs – that's Time travel!
Spoiler:
Just a hint: If you change your signature to point to download/file.php?id=49744&mode=view rather than to download/file.php?id=49744&t=1 the text will be a little more seaish and probably better readable. (And probably that's what you had in mind anyway. ;))

Well, yes and no. The titles before were in a box that with a white background, and it always bothered me. Not that this one exactly matches the background, but it's better. And I wanted to make the text, well, the image with with text, a little longer, and make the picture of lmjbot a little smaller so everything would look more molpish, but I'm not sure it made much of a difference. I tried what you suggested and it did make the text image bigger, but it always cuts off on the right side if it gets too big. I would like the text box to extend all the way to the right side of the frame so that the edge lines up with the edge of the lmjbot picture, but it doesn't seem to be possible. :(

Well, what I really wanted a CD drive for was so that I could burn CDs to use for bellydance performances. That's still the format requested for most shows.

Thanks for the <computery stuff> advice, everymolpy!
Spoiler:
I went to Best Buy and let myself get talked into a open-box MacBook Pro, which was really a good deal for a MacBook Pro but is a lot more than I planned to spend. After looking at my accounts, I may be taking it back and getting something cheaper. The thing is, I don't really know how much RAM I need, or how fast a CPU I need, or how big a hard drive I need. I don't play games, don't do a lot of graphics (tho I might do some more manips if everything didn't take an hour to do.) So the Macbook has great specs, but maybe I don't need all that. Maybe I'd be ok with the much cheaper HP with 2 GB memory and a 32 GB hard drive. But then, a couple of my MFFSes require me to spend a lot of time on the computer, so maybe I need it.

No. Just no. 32 GB hard drive? No. Shouldts thou disaver, I wilst cry, "That which was, no longer is."

Less is more? No. More is more.

ETA: Duh.

ETA after thinking some more. Thirty-one years ago, when I was writing 6510 machine language on the Commodore 64, I bought a 180Kb floppy disk thinking that it would be more than adequate to store everything I could possibly wish to store.

AND. My current computer has 1.8 terabytes built in, and 10.8 terabytes of USB storage, but my phone has 8GB and my tablet has 16GB. Let he who is rolling in storage not be the one to cast the first... [insert really witty object here.]

ETA some more: Are we still on the "Make your own edict" page? OK; EDICT: How much storage is enough? Lots and lots, or just ample? Or could you get by with only sufficient?

In a desktop, you can get by with sufficient (depending on what you plan on doing), and add more later. Plan ahead (by ensuring that the memory you do have occupies the fewest number of slots, leaving you free to install more (ask about other conditions too; sometimes there are other restrictions). But if you have a laptop, you're probably never going to be able to upgrade anything, so load it from the getgo.

Note also that in the future, the memory you need may no longer be available. TAs are getting to be disposable. Sad but true.

In the end, memory is cheap enough that it's probably not worth your time to figure it out - just load it up. Software will grow without your influence.

I was talking hard drive (or equivalent) rather than RAM (I have 8GB of ram, which for me is sufficient.)
I'm a strong believer in storing data on removable drives (or online) rather than on the computer's hard drive.
I also strongly agree with the point you make about RAM. Start off with lots, in the largest modules available. (As you say, fewer slots.)
I remember adding 2 meg of RAM to a 286, doubling its capacity. This is the future.
Thinks. It might have been a video card. Whatever. My own personal RAM tends to fail.

Correct me if I am wrong, but modern CPUs use multiple memory stick groups in parallel (memory channels). This doubles the effective speed. Usually there are 2 and each memory channel has a different color.
Ergo: getting the required amount of memory on only one stick makes this parallel usage impossible, since you can only stick memory on 1 channel, effectively halving your memory speed. Always get at least 2 sticks and stick them in differently colored slots.

Welcome back jozwa! Actually, the thread still does have a lot to do with the comic (although there is, as before, a lot of other side discussion, since everything is RELATED). There is Time artwork, sequels, Time-related stories, several movies, many songs (some completely original, some with ottified lyrics), and many other things related to the comic. Check out the wiki as a guide and shortcut, and stick around, and poke around the Pastpages. Molpish to see you!

Neil_Boekend wrote:Correct me if I am wrong, but modern CPUs use multiple memory stick groups in parallel (memory channels).
Yes, this is one of the complications. In a laptop, you'll often only have two slots, and upgrading will mean tossing out perfectly good memory. Ditto the hard drive; no room. So in a laptop, load it up like it's your last chance.

A desktop may have four slots, so you can fill half of them with the biggest chips you can, and that should be enough but also give you room to expand. Depending on what you do with the machine, that should be fine until the OS is upgraded, by which point you'll need an order of magnitude more. :)

It probably offers the least-interrupted blitzing experience at this point, considering the images that have likely been lost back in the pastpages.
