In 1999, Mandrake was the first distro I ever got installed and running 100%. I've long since abandoned it, but it's a happy memory.

Same here. (Well, x86 linux because I had MkLinux running on a Mac, but that was almost idiot proof.) Getting the sound card going was quite a bitch, iirc. Not quite the "having to fiddle with interrupts and memory ranges" days, but it was close.

There's no version of the story that says it's her phone. It IS a company phone. RTFA!

"I think that if 'SEAN CONNERY' 'HIT A HOME RUN' then 'ASTRONOMY' because.'RAISIN' 'DANCE' 'FEVER'. Really.

Only if it's tweeted...with an Instagram pic.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
