Just to start out ...

Hello everyone, I am about one year into my linux experiment and (mostly) I love it. I hope that this site will let me share some things that I have learned and some opinions that I have.

To get going let me say a word about the boxes that I have. All are running Ubuntu Hardy.

My old baby is a Hp pavilion dv6040us, AMD dual core 64, which after over a year is almost completely up and running as I like it. The remote is not working correctly, but I wonder if that is hardware and not linux as it seems that no one else has had any problems with it.

My new baby is an Ubuntu preload from It features an Intel quad-core 64. This is of course working great.

I am also running a few older boxes, the final one of note is a small webserver, which I am attempting to run in text only (as a challenge).

I am a Physics graduate student, who often need to do computer simulations of complicated systems, so I need all the power I can get and I am always trying to keep my computers on the very edge.
