lotuspsychjehey daftykins18:36
daftykinscor, 50mph winds down on the island here D:18:36
lotuspsychjehows you mate18:36
lotuspsychjeyeah we got strong storm also18:36
daftykinsgood thanks :D tad windswept though! yourself?18:36
lotuspsychjefine here  tnx18:36
daftykinsjust been to scrub up my other bike that i took away to Wales, as it'd been at my parents since18:36
daftykinsi'm being forced to take it back again so my folks can get their motorbikes in and out :>18:37
daftykinsoooh i can hardly wait for the week to start, to get all my deliveries ^_^18:38
lotuspsychjethe mobile glass front?18:38
daftykinsyep, plus the SSD, £200 Lenovo laptop and bluray Battlestar Galactica set i snagged in the sales18:39
lotuspsychjewich ssd was it?18:39
lotuspsychjelol you buy dvd's?18:39
daftykins240GB SanDisk Plus, for £33 delivered. Low end, but still MLC18:39
lotuspsychjeah right neat price18:40
lotuspsychjeand goes rocketfast also18:40
daftykinsi own exactly one bluray set right now, this'll be my second - i tend to splash out if it's a series i'd really like to see again18:40
lotuspsychjedaftykins: gonna run w10 on it?18:40
lotuspsychjedaftykins: check qbittorrent :p18:40
daftykinsoh trust me i have my sources for such things, just didn't fancy it this time18:41
lotuspsychjeor gonna run linux on it?18:41
daftykinswell the cheap Lenovo is going to the guy i got that 27" screen in for, as it's new enough to drive 2560x1440 over HDMI - so he'll run 10 on it probably as he will be using it for architects drawings18:41
lotuspsychjeah kk18:41
daftykinsi may be able to sell him that SSD to put in it, depends if he'll be willing to cover my time to do it - the machine comes with a 1TB spinner :>18:42
lotuspsychje1TB out and in enclosure and ssd in18:43
lotuspsychjeor does the laptop handle double hd?18:43
daftykinsmost likely not... but yeah, could get an optical drive bay to put it in18:43
daftykinsor i'm sure i could make use with it in my special enclosure for my xbox otherwise ;)18:43
lotuspsychjeim gonna do that with ssd+ubuntu transforms on existing laptops18:44
daftykinsmmm, good way to keep folks data then18:44
lotuspsychjeplugout their existing mechanical hd and put in sata enclosure18:44
daftykinsi do find that's the most time consuming part of support tasks, just shunting peoples digital lives around before you can work :P18:44
lotuspsychjehmm that latest 352 nvidia driver seems to cause alot of issues18:46
lotuspsychjehad several users to revert to older driver versions18:46
daftykinsthat could be why i don't seem to be able to get anyone's optimus setup working when i suggest it :(18:46
lotuspsychjethe guy i just helped got optimus aswell18:47
daftykinsit can be a right tricky devil :)18:47
lotuspsychjethink it works best with optimus+340 or 34618:47
daftykinsmmm, probably ok when the mobile chip is an 'older' one that's already in 34618:48
daftykinssupported by 346, i mean18:48

GrizzlyKolschHi everyone - I'm new to ubuntu / linux, but want to learn more about networking and security. Are there any 'projects' you could recommend, so that I could learn using a hands on approach?19:56
daftykinsi got a good background by setting myself the task of setting up a wordpress website from ubuntu server a while back19:56
daftykinsthe free course LFS101x on edx.org is also a good primer on Linux aspects19:57
daftykinsperhaps creating two VMs that can file share via samba would also be a good one19:57
GrizzlyKolschah - I was thinking about edx courses. That sounds like a good idea to me.19:57
GrizzlyKolschcheers for the tips :)19:58
