Ubuntu Feisty on your USB drive - finally!

Filed under
HowTos

xubuntublog: Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” contained some new packages, it also introduced a bug due to which your data would no longer be saved. When it was released, this bug still wasn’t fixed. It is expected to be fixed in the next release, 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”, to be released in October of this year. Up until then, we’re out of luck. You’d think.

linux-watch: OK, so why have Novell, Xandros, and Linspire all gotten into bed with Microsoft? Is it... They were seduced by Steve Ballmer's charming smile? They've gone over to the dark side of the force? Terror of Microsoft's mighty patent portfolio had them groveling at Microsoft's feet?

linux-watch: In a recent column, I speculated that Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical Ltd., the company behind Ubuntu, might make Ubuntu the next Linux distribution to make a deal with Microsoft. The matter has also been hotly spoken about in some of the Ubuntu mailing lists. Unfortunately, no one seems to have actually read my column.

A New Adventure! Windows Mobile and Ubuntu Linux

Filed under
Ubuntu

pocketpcmag blogs: I've been aware of the existence of the Linux operating system for a long time, but I'd always assumed that it would be too complicated for me to learn and was a bit too geeky. Recently, however, I began hearing about a version of Linux called Ubuntu that was supposed to be pretty easy to use. Flash forward a few weeks and not only have I found that it is relatively easy to use, but it's already replaced Windows Vista as my main operating system of choice for day to day use!

Reviews

CyberNet: I’ve been wanting to get into reviewing computer hardware, but I wasn’t quite sure where to start. Finally I decided on laptops, and while there are some great sites out there that review them, none of the reviewers use them for an extended period of time. Their reviews are typically based off of performance and first impressions, but what about other things that are important such as how long the battery lasts while watching a movie or how scratch-resistant the case is?

Starting an appliction on login with Ubuntu

Filed under
HowTos

Pie Palace: My desktop is an Ubuntu install. I want my instant messaging client to start automagically when I login. It doesn't make sense to use /etc/init.d to start it, because I want the app to be run as my user, and I want it to start with my windowing session. How does one do this with Ubuntu?

    Docker-style containers are so hot they’ve broken the scale ETR uses to measure CIO intent to purchase enterprise technology, registering “the strongest buying intention score ever recorded in [its] six-year history.” While that data is more than a year old, more recent analyses peg Docker adoption up by a factor of 2.6 in 2016 over 2015, yielding a market worth $762 million in 2016, projected to bloat to $2.7 billion by 2020, according to 451 Research.

The drug name is Contrave. Using two separate drugs to shed weight can be very effective you can find combinations before the FDA now awaiting approval. When dealing with fat loss and the people that go through it you ought to err to the side of caution and let the FDA do its job and demand some study be done in order that the public understands the side effects and dangers of the medications before we bring them. Keep in mind that drug companies will be in business to generate income and that they would say almost anything to keep people on his or her medications. Researchers found out that participants taking this drug for the year, dropped excess weight within one month and have kept the weight off through the entire 56 weeks from the study. Contrave can be a combination from the drugs naltrexone and bupropion, which seems to reflect a whole new trend of weight-loss drugs that are made up of several active ingredient, which may make them more efficient and safer. Combo-pilling may be the newest fad or also the newest in the future under scrutiny and so it is just more publicly known in recent months, comb-pilling for weight loss has been around since the eighties. The biggest reason that employing a combination of pills is starting to become popular will be the fact that since right now there aren't long term prescription weight loss supplements that have been authorized by the FDA besides orlistat. The truly disturbing part is that doctors are prescribing these combinations of medications even though some of the combinations happen to be rejected or have yet to be authorized by the FDA. Seizures certainly are a side effect with Contrave and mustn't be taken in individuals with seizure disorders. The drug may also raise blood pressure and heartrate, and really should not be used in individuals with a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months. Blood pressure and pulse should also be measured before commencing the drug and throughout therapy using the drug. The FDA also warned that Contrave can raise hypertension and heart rate and must not be used in patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure levels, in addition to by you are not heart-related and cerebrovascular (circulation system dysfunction impacting mental performance) disease. Patients using a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months, life-threatening arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure were excluded through the clinical trials. Those taking Contrave should have their heart-rate and pulse monitored regularly. In addition, considering that the compound includes bupropion, Contrave comes having a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients to the increased probability of suicidal thoughts and behaviors related to antidepressant drugs. The warning also notes that serious neuropsychiatric events are actually reported in patients taking bupropion for quitting smoking. The course of recovery, even for those using the medications, centers more about talk and much less on pills because while drugs like acamprosate and naltrexone help change brain chemistry, they just don't change minds. Once you adopt away the alcohol, sometimes using the successful usage of prescribed medicine, the minds still need work. Alcoholics who slip in recovery and non-alcoholics drink for fundamentally the same reason: It relieves social/physical/emotional tension. With alcoholics however, their own health are programmed differently genetically and react to drinking with more drinking. So counseling or even a 12-step meeting helps those abstinent keep from using the first drink. Recovery has very little to do with stopping the drinking and the ones successful in recovery admit they're success is founded on learning or relearning the way to manage life's tensions.
