Last week AMD released the Radeon R9 290 "Hawaii" graphics card. The R9 290 is a cut-down R9 290X and sells for just $399 USD. Here are the first Linux benchmarks of the AMD R9 290 using Ubuntu 13.10!
So pretty much I'm sick of google forcing products on me and such so I want to go opensource or atleast.. No google on the web. I plan to use Firefox, thunderbird and duckduckgo. My question is can Firefox save all my settings and sync them? Can it integrate a lot of my services together? I ask mainly because I've gotten sued to have all my stuff I one place. And also because I dual boot and I need my bookmarks and settings, etc. to sync across.submitted by Gerchferder
Does anybody know if there is a way to get ussp-push to confirm if a file was accepted or rejected? Using --debug and diffing the output after an accept then a reject yields identical content.
Alternatively if ussp-push cannot do it is there any better ways of transferring a file over bluetooth without pairing?submitted by Mazo

My old Toshiba laptop is signaling it might be a good idea to get a new machine. However, before I part with my hard earned euros, I'd like to pinpoint the cause of the random hard boots and maybe get some handy tips from you.
The laptop seems to hard boot for no apparent reason, and this happens mostly after starting up. The problem seems to go away after it has warmed up a bit.
The fact that it does this in Ubuntu 12.04 (default kernel) and Mint 15 (kernel 3.12) also points to a hardware fault.
I've checked syslog, but there's no indication to the source of the fault: no kernel panic, no segfault, nothing.
Given your experience, what is the most likely cause of this fault? A failing solder joint in the AMD Radeon? Can a failing power supply generate a power_bad interrupt and boot the machine?
Thank you in advance for your input.
