Re: Windows 7

Unix Bob? You mean Linux? Is there a version of Unix that runs on a PC? FreeBSD? Don't understand. Anyway, I have a copy of Ubuntu on a USB stick (so easy to install on a NetBook), if anybody is interested. You can boot from the USB stick, play around with it to make sure all the peripherals you use...

Re: Thailand Celebrating Darwin/Displaying Evolution

Doubt if this would happen in the Washington DC where 83% (Gallop Polls in US) basically do not "believe" in evolution "theory." I think this is highly correlated (negatively) with the direction of the US economy, as it churns out so few engineers and scientists (native born ones especially), withou...

Re: Flying Club in Udon Thani?

Sounds good, hope to see your plane in the sky around here one day. I have an old Grumman sitting in the desert southwest, so do not know have much experience with corrosion. The humidity there is minute and precip the same. I wonder if the people at MasterTech built that Sonex. The kit is very chea...

Re: Free Anti-virus+firewall Vs. Norton/McAfee?

I would be more than happy to lend someone a USB stick with Ubuntu on it. Just plug it in, reboot, hit F2 to get into the BIOS to make certain it will boot from the USB stick... and then Ubuntu should boot. You can check to see if your peripherals are recognised. I have an Asus Netbook 1000HE with U...

I see, I doubt if Vista can be installed on the P2 either? Probably the same situation.

Re: Free Anti-virus+firewall Vs. Norton/McAfee?

Yes, Bob understands. I just meant that Microsoft OS's have so many massive shortcomings that I just don't understand why more people do not try to move to a real OS. Sorry to harp on about it. Just remember the days when I ran Windows, got a virus that wiped out my system... after that.. I wised up...

Free firewall...it is called "Ubuntu" (and Firestarter if you really are paranoid) ... this is a crazy fascist loving thread. If you do not spend your days playing games, not sure why anybody would support a monopolistic tyrant... now with all the time I have saved in not worrying about a virus ... ...

Re: Flying Club in Udon Thani?

sounds like a nice aircraft. Don't know much about corrosion but wiki says... "Most structural alloys corrode merely from exposure to moisture in the air, but the process can be strongly affected by exposure to certain substances (see below)." Most definitely have moisture in the air here. But, as y...

Re: Flying Club in Udon Thani?

The white plane in the group picture is a Sonex kit built airplane. I know this as I thought about buying one and building it back in the US... but I don't trust my mechanical abilities, and bit lazy so gave up on that idea. I wouldn't mind going up in the Sonex and seeing the performance. With a hi...

Re: Accommodation recommendation

I am staying at Top Mansion at the moment. Yesterday, as walking back to Top Mansion, before Irish Clock, noticed a newish small hotel displaying 7KB/month. There was an old Thai man at the desk, could not speak English and my Thai is not good, to say the least. He wound up getting a lady who let me...
