  2. Headtracking Software Mouse Control

    Hey Bruce nice app after a few quick changes this works well in Ubuntu 10.4 lucid Added packages also added dependencies where needed libcv1_1.0.0-4ubuntu1_amd64 libcvaux1_1.0.0-6.2ubuntu1_amd64 libcvaux-dev_2.0.0-3ubuntu2_amd64 libhighgui1_1.0.0-6.2ubuntu1_amd64 Bear
  3. I'm a tad confused here confused for several post now you have repeatedly stated that your not a smoker, nor do you wish others to smoke around you. You have also stated in so many words your rights are better or seemingly more important than the rights of others. You have repeatedly mentioned public houses such as bars, clubs and restaurants that it is a good thing that smoking has been banned in all of these places, Now don't get me wrong I don't have an issue with your not smoking but I am generally confused about this particular post I quote Smoke all you want in your own property Can assume that it is Ok with you that people smoke in these privately owned establishments that have been or are being purchased with private funds
  4. Caution very out spoken

  5. What happened to my pitstop?

    The changes where sorely needed, take a look around the layout is cleaner easier (so far) to navigate, there are a couple of added functions in the user control panel and the search function works a heck of a lot faster. Kudos to the powers that be, this looks to be an all around great improvement Bear

  7. DVD Burning question

    Thanks for the link if nothing else works I will read up more on that Bear Those where the first things I thought of and no dice Bear I tried the air but the can is a little old maybe the Huff and Puff has Poofed, if a new can of air does not work then I am off to read up more on the link that Adam posted and try yet more software. Course if this gets any more annoying then I will end up with one more linux machine Bear
  8. DVD Burning question

    Yep So far no one including myself has a clue if I can burn cd's and single layer dvd's of various brands, then I should be able to burn dual layer dvd's. This is very frustrating, I really do not want to replace the drive as it will burn everything but dual layer Toshiba and Memorex customer support don't have a clue either. Unless someone has a suggestion the way I see it is I have three choices 1. Replace the drive 2. Format 3. Run a repair on the off chance there is something mucked up The first two are a last resort of course, the third I am considering but I have already run a diag and my machine passes with flying colors. Oh and yes I did check the obvious and used a can of air on the lens Bear
  9. Having a strange problem with my dvd burner I can burn cd's I can burn single layer dvd's both are memorex I went out and bought a package of memorex dual layer dvd's and the first 10 or so burned fine now they won't burn. I am getting a power calibration error which I found has something to do with the burning head I have tried different software and all the Google fixes I ran across. My mind tells me if this is a hardware issue then I would not be able to burn anything, but as I stated I am able to burn single layer dvd's and cd's, I have also tried different dual layer dvd's Any clues would be appreciated Bear
  10. Another strike against - "I Accept"

    Bruce it could be that most people don't bother to read the eula to begin with Bear

  12. I have said all I am going to say there is no need to bait me Bear
  13. Not being known for mixing words or keeping my mouth shut for very long, I think it is time I have my say Your attitude towards other members in my opinion is unwarranted and unwanted You have repeatedly tried to bait others in to ridiculous arguments in various other forums. The world is not a fair place and it does not revolve around you, I would suggest you pull your self up by your boot straps and grow up. Bear
