I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

comment Ubuntu Button Click Authentication
@Daniel because anyone can sit down and "click the button", which means someone might be able to hack a remote button click, very serious security risk, and for linux this then would mean the password would need to be stored somewhere to pass to the system on the button click

comment Is there an open source alternative to “Adobe Digital Editions”?
I have made it less prominent, again I will state that I am just passing on information I found on the Adobe website and "Interpret this as you will, I will not give you legal advice."

comment Is there an open source alternative to “Adobe Digital Editions”?
@unforgettableid It downloads from the "content server", bound or agreed It doesn't really matter - writing something to "download" from their server without permission is similar to breaking in and stealing data. Certainly I don't agree with it, If you wish to write a program like this I'm not stopping you, I am just displaying information that might be relevant.

comment Cannot load Windows XP after deleting ubunutu partition
that would be "fdisk" one word and "-l" with a lowercase "L" as in "lion" so sudo fdisk -l is what you enter in, but i'm not sure that would solve things in your case.

comment Software recommendations for graphics-centric Ubuntu system?
That page is not for how your desktop will work - it is for "giving"/donating money to the people that provide the OS - you do not need to "buy" anything - the Ubuntu downloaded will be the same.

@pavak ~/ brings you to /home/<username> of the current user - so you don't need to explain to people to replace "username" with their username and without the <> ect... please don't edit things to be harder for people.
