I used Ubuntu off and on for years. It was my main introduction to Linux. I thought I liked Ubuntu. But then I found out that I really liked Debian, and eventually grew to dislike the extra crap Ubuntu added to it. I have Debian stable on my laptop, which still uses Gnome 2. There is also Crunchbang (!#), which is basically just Debian packaged with eitehr Xfce or Openbox, plus a few tweaks. No GUI heavy nonsense. I have that on my desktop.
Yep, this is what I do. In fact, if you don't that much you can unlimited data/messages and 300 minutes for only $25/month. And you don't have to pay extra to use a smart phone.
My University uses MS-CHAP v2 authentication. It's not a problem for me since Debian supports it. The problem is they didn't document it clearly. It took while to figure out as it was only documented under a guide for connecting smart phones.
I glossed over TFA, and it only looks like they are talking about the ports themselves. Most DVI output I've seen is DVI-I, which includes the analogue D-SUB signal anyways, so D-SUB over a VGA connector is still only $1 away if you really need it.
There are disciplinary measures. They're mentioned on every syllabus. But I've never cheated and I don't know anyone who has. But then again I'm an engineering and CS student. The big stink about this story, which the summary of TFA fails to explain: this was the capstone business course. The fallout from this is really putting the business school in a bad light. But of course, our EECS department is just fine.
The C standard says a char is one byte, so you can't fault software that won't work properly when the compiler doesn't adhere to the standard.
Well, I guess lucky me. In the rural Florida area where I live, a $10 Tracfone that we picked up actually has better coverage that our Alltel phones. Probably has something to do with the GSM technology vs. CDMA. Which is good news for me 'cause I feel like switching soon.
