Sorry, Ben -- but once in a while I can't help but be a smart-Acura.

HTML5?  Is that a new version of ERC's MUL-C race gas?

We're by and large racers that aren't all that familiar with code and stuff like that.  But ask me about portable toilets at Bville and you can get hours and hours of good information*.  Ask one of us about reading pinion gears and we can help.  Ask us to do much beyond logging into landracing.com -- and we're frickin' lost.  That's why we keep it as simple as we can here.

---

*Well, okay, minutes.



--------



***Okay -- long enough to void and zip.

PS  In case you didn't know, and with you being pretty new you haven't seen me in action, but my prime Bonneville volunteer duty is marshalling six dozen porta-potties.  Everybody's got something fun to do while racing.

new fuel??? html5? could be, if it's a biofuel based on male bovine excrement.

marshalling porta potties?  not bad so long as none of them are laying down on the job!

I just like IRC as an option because often times I cripple this machine to the point it's stuck at console only for a few days while things recompile.  I doubt any of the text only browsers I can use from the console in that case will work with the chat application.  IRC of course works just fine from the console.  Incidently though the forum does work from text only browsers. Cheesy

Also, if I ever complain about someone being a smart Acura you should ban me immediatly.

Polyhead,

Text-only browsers?  Where are you?  What is your special need?  PM me if you have some good info.  A text-only browser reminds me of my pre-mouse, text-only, green-screen days.

Oh it's not a need usually, except when I break X.  X is part of the gui system on linux.  It has some fragility to it and sometimes I do a thing that brings the entire house of cards down.  So then it takes a week or so to sort the mess out and that leaves me using just the console till I work out what I've done wrong.

Is that his way of defining the word "masochist"? huh

hahahahaha yeah probably. 

Then again, a purely textual system has it's advantages.  I mean... you can do movie play back on the console.  http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/02/how-to-play-videos-in-terminal.html

Ummm...so a purely textual system does video?  Seems pretty contradictory.

Does anybody else share your situation?

Probably not my exact situation, but then again, AAlib exist for a reason... I sure didn't author that god awful mess.  I will say this, anyone that runs X is running a fragile Acura house of damned fragile cards made of fragile materials on a fragile table in a house made of straw straddling the san adreas fault.  If you leave X alone it stays working, but it doesn't always run all that great when left alone so you poke at it with a stick and then it blows up in your face sometimes.  X has always been, and continues to be the WORST part about any linux distro.
