twagerAnyone tell me if a 3g phone will automatically connect to 2g if it cannot find a 3g signal ?07:45
DJonesAs far as I know it should do, should pick the best connection, dropping down until as a last resort it starts chucking carrier pidgeons out as though the phone was a magicians top hat07:47
DJonesAlthough if its a Blackberry, it probably starts with the pidgeon and drops down to postal service07:50

daftykinsi keep discovering people with my surname across the US because for some reason they keep signing up my "<firstinitial><surname>@gmail.com" to things ;/12:24
mgdmI have the same problem, due to gmail's bizarre handling of . in the local part12:25
mgdmbut then, I don't use gmail as my primary email, so it's not actually that much of an issue12:25
penguin42daftykins: There are another couple of people with the same name as me at work (big company) - most people forget to use the middle initial to distinguish us12:25
daftykinshaha, ouch12:25

daftykinsseems a bit of a bad choice of policy12:26

dutchiehi all - anybody know if there is still a way to import .ovpn configuration into network manager?13:38
SuperMattI've no idea, though I can't see any reason why not13:39
SuperMattyou may have to install the openvpn packages though13:39
SuperMattsudo apt-get install network-manager-open13:40
SuperMattuhm, there's supposed to be vpn on the end of that13:41
SuperMattwho knows how I forgot it?13:42
dutchieah, i found it13:42
dutchiei was just grabbing "OpenVPN" from the add menu13:43

mungbean_is there an equivalent of unity --reset for windows?14:36
ali1234yeah, open task manager and kill explorer.exe14:36
mungbean_thnking more along lines of restore to defaults14:37
mungbean_something weird about this install14:37
daftykinswhat are you wanting to reset 0o14:37
ali1234ah. boot the recovery disk and copy the backup registry hive over the main one14:37
mungbean_all fonts are nastified, and opening word, usually would have a blue background outside thepage boundaries, but it is brilliant white14:37
mungbean_fonts are as if the cleartype settings have been deliverately chosen for masximum difficulty in reading14:38
mungbean_the wizard doesn't fix it14:40
mungbean_and there's no way of restoring to defaults14:40
daftykinsis that a bare metal install? 0o14:41

mungbean_think it all started after plugging a second monitor to the laptop14:42
SuperMatthas anyone here looked through the new wallpapers?14:47
bashrcAre they shocking?14:50
SuperMattwell, I've just looked through them, and many of them seem to be of quite a low quality14:50
SuperMattwell I just did an apt-get update14:52
mungbean_screnshot of desktop viewed on another monitor shows there is a blue title bar and thing on the left14:53
mungbean_and search progs is readable14:53

daftykinsseems pretty conventional mungbean_14:53
mungbean_yes but on the laptop the blue bits arent showing14:53
daftykinsmungbean_: right click desktop -> personalise -> picking a theme might force a reload?14:54
mungbean_hmm maybe gamma controls14:54
SuperMattthe jpg is 2560x1600, but it's just an upscaled version of something much smaller14:54

SuperMattthe leaf with water droplets is completely out of focus14:56
mungbean_completely ruins everything14:56
mungbean_SuperMatt: looks liek they are going for single colour themes14:58

bashrcI wouldn't exactly characterise those wallpapers as being low quality14:58
mungbean_"colour enhancement" my butt14:58
SuperMattmany of them just aren't right14:59
daftykinsso painful looking at those comments14:59
mungbean_are the comments about unity?14:59
daftykinsnah the wallpaper talk14:59
SuperMattthey've been submitted at 2560x1600, but when you look at them at native res, not zoomed in or out, many of them are heavily pixelated14:59
SuperMattso they've just been upscaled15:00
daftykinsyou see they say they've not put the originals up on that page, yeah?15:00
SuperMattyeah, but the package has landed in saucy15:00
