Making the switch to Linux today...
    #528686 - 02/19/11 11:06 AM (5 years, 9 months ago)

I'm having some pretty shitty PC problems, so I'm trying to make the switch to Linux and hoping to hell it stops me from overheating and shutting down...its working so far, but I'm not sure.

So, if I stop posting, thats why...assume I'm not in prison or killed :lol:.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Your problem is faulty hardware. Is you pc/laptop new? Is it running 7?

It was. Its 2 years old. Before I made this switch today, it slowed down to the point where I couldn't even boot the thing. It would freeze at the "Welcome" screen. :shrug:

And, I haven't overheated in a few hours of leaving the laptop on. Before I was lucky if I got 30 minutes.

My only complaint is that it seems like the keyboard can't keep up with my typing. It drops  letter every once in a while for some reason? :confused: Not always the same letter either so I know its not just some junk stuck under the key. Hmmm.
