    Did Troi always have low-cut dresses? Always? Maybe I didn't pick it up last time, being seven.

    http://crunchbang.org/ This is just one more Linux distro I would toss out a recommendation for, but only for people with moderate Linux experience. In a technical sense it may slightly edge out MEPIS in performance and it is also a great "Out of the Box" OS for running Wifi and having PlashPlayer for YouTube preinstalled. It does not come with a word processor, but it has pre-made scripts you select to grab AbiWord or Libre Office. Also, it comes with the Iceweasel web browser but has similar scripts to make it easy to grab Chromium or Opera. In the same spot is a menu selection to change your default web browser. Now for the major difference which is the desktop where Crunch Bang goes in the opposite direction of MEPIS. While MEPIS offers the nice KDE Windows manager, Crunch Bang uses the barren minimalist OpenBox Window Manager. There is no task bar or start button. It does not even allow for desktop Icons unless you change setting or install a different File Manager. If you're a person who loathes seeing cluttered desktops this might appeal to you. On the other hand I think it might freakout typical Windows users who will be used to going for their Start Button. Oddly enough, Crunch Bang's desktop is faster to navigate IMO. It has a display on the desktop called Conky that lists memory and CPU stats and also Hot-Keys for bringing up the standard applications like the WebBrowser, Terminal, or File Browser. Otherwise, there is a menu you can access by right clicking anywhere on the desktop. Aside from that, if you think the default look is to blah you can tweak the window appears and still slap on a wallpaper. I still like MEPIS for my Laptop. I'm 50/50 on it regarding my Netbook because Crunch Bang's OpenBox naturally uses the least amount of screen real estate. I am using Crunch Bang on an old Desktop to save on resources while running Virtual Machines. I guess I'd wrap up by saying that Ubuntu and MINT seem to be the most well known or visible alternative Linux OSes, but I think both of these Debian Stable based Linux systems are definitely worth a look. I do think distros following Debian should be more thoroughly tested.

    About halfway through an Associates program and finding this college experience to be kind of surreal. Windows 7 Config is incredibly dull and forces you do log into a server remotely for the projects and deal with the lag. Tomorrow, I have Networking which is okay I guess but I don't know how I'm going to remember half of it. I guess what mystifies me is..... I want to be working on the freakin computers. Let me learn about networking by setting up a network or configuring a router, not just reading about it or looking at pictures. No wonder employers want experienced people instead of fresh eager grads with their degrees. I guess I'm just curious if anyone else has tried college and found all the classes to be Book Theory and Power Point slides. I mean right now I would feel embarrassed to ask anyone for a computer job and I hope I don't still feel that way when I finish this program. I'm thinking of upgrading my thermos coffee mug from 16 oz. to a 32 oz.

    Or use a vBulletin plugin in Drupal to run the forums and let Drupal do content management.

    Well, these smaller sites would be stuff like pictures or comics, not quite articles.Having a "master forum" for all these sites is something that's been batted around, but without a connection between the articles/images and the main forum, it's hard to say what traffic on the forums will do. I think a master forum could work if there there are clear divisions between site types and the the different sites share similar demographics. You just don't want to try merging very different small communities.

    vBulletin costs money. PHPbb does not. I like the vBulletin Admin Panel a lot more than PHPbb, though.

    It's a big move and disconnected from the articles and with a smaller site, it's hard to justify.

    I'm not much of a Front Page person unless I see a feed that an article was posted about a Movie or TV show that interests me. I didn't really get into the podcasts or videos. Otherwise, I hang around forums for random discussion. Also, I quit Facebook like 3 years ago. I think it's become something ridiculous.

    Above all else, we've been honored and proud that FEZ has help supported us the way you have, tell us what you need, an we'll do anything we can to help yall. As for facebook, i'll be honest not so much for it because again don't like what its become but at the same time i'm not a stranger to it. And I think the facebook option would be a good idea, anything that will generate good commentary and feed back.

    What Time Warner merger? Thing is, Facebook wouldn't be replacing the forum system, but for comments it's worked out incredibly well. In fact, the only reason why we switched away from Facebook Comments is because they didn't have a forum system. Some of our best commentary came from when we were on Facebook.

    "I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" -Dirty Harry I think of that every time I pull out my Underboss...

    I've been browsing around the rental store and not finding much that I like. Also, some games i've tried have no online player activity anymore. So I'm not sure if I need to follow the crowd and get something standard like Call of Duty, Gears of War, Halo. I just tried Assassins Creed 3 and walking around pretending to be an NPC seemed really boring IMO. I should say my all time favorite LIVE game was Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Unfortunately, Battlefront 3 is in perpetual development limbo and may never come out. For a while I did play Bad Company 2 and that was a really fun campaign game, but the multiplayer was hit n' miss for me. The graphics were excellent and the vehicles decent, but the layout of the maps were weird. Also, there was a frustrating tendency to have a lot of spawn camping. I'm not sure if I would like Battlefield 3 better. I rented it but EA required that stupid online pass to get into multiplayer. One other multiplayer I rented that I may try again is Homefront. I think the Battlepoint system is kind of weird but it seemed like a fun urban combat game. The reason I have reservations about the Battlepoint system is I could see spending points for the Rocket Launcher, Drone, or vehicle and then right after getting sniped and feeling I just wasted hundreds of points. Otherwise, I did enjoy jumping into the game on large teams. While I find the BP system weird I might like the unlockable weapons that come with leveling.
