SchlageR, that's a nice wall paper. I have the blue version. Could you send me that darker one? It like it much better.

Will you show me how? I just get lost with all the options on format. I have wubi installed and ran live, but I am not an advanced Linux user.

Re: Help with Redundant Array of Independent (Inexpensive) Disks

I was reading all morning and went from doing it today to not sure if I can. As I was saying earlier, I want to do a system restore. I will not have a DVD burner anymore. Can I boot the CD I made after a back up, remove the DVD burner, replace with my HD bay, and then restore from my external. I jus...

Help with Redundant Array of Independent (Inexpensive) Disks

So, can I set up a RAID on My T500 in Windows 7 x64? I have heard that my Bios does not support it, but I can use some sort of software to do this. My HDD speed drops my System Rating a lot. I don't have the option to get a SSD at the moment. I already have a expansion bay. I'll be using 2 160 GB 72...

I'm not very familiar with them, but I have one that has a bad logic board, but good base. If you want to replace it PM me.

Re: Got a T500 and would really like to try using Linux, but...

Now, that was a good read. I really started getting determined to use it after finding Lightweight Portable Security. I guess if Linux is good enough for the Dept. of Defense than I should dig around the web more, until I find a good fit.

You said it best with "Many people don't mind because they don't want to spend any time with configuration or thinking about their computer." I am hands on with every thing.

I really enjoy the idea of open source software. Some of my favorite programs are totally free, and that's my motivation for using ubuntu.

I keep trying them out only to be disappointed that I'm not able to figure out what other people make so look easy. I did like the gamers Linux and am glad I burnt it to try it as a live DVD, but I didn't want that to be my OS by far. I'm loving ubuntu in general and have tried it several times. One...

Re: "Hello World" ThinkPad Support Community

The only MG's we get to see are from to 70's, I'm guessing. They look fun. I like small sports cars too, but I'm a very large man so I can fit in them. I tried to move a Mazda Miata one time, if I had released the clutch I'm sure I'd of killed my co-workers before getting it pushed back in. My older...

I would take any late seventies TA, I love the Bandit. I own a 1987 Z28, but I would rather have a Firebird TA I loved K.I.T.T. as a kid.

Well, Bub is a character in GTA VCS, he is a zombie you can unlock in multi-player. Most people even Rockstar fans don't know about him. I added the McZombieFace so I could make a facebook.

Re: Best T500 systemboard upgrade?

I am looking into doing the same thing with my T500. Can I ask, were you got it and how much it was for the W500 MB? I have a couple reasons why I want to do this. (1) I want to play more Live games than I can. Now, I can barely run GTA IV with this 256. (2) My bios is half locked I can install an O...
