Do region locks still apply?

How, in a legal way, am I supposed to acquire this art piece in the version the artists wanted me to appreciate?

Dell Selling Dual-Boot Laptops

lmfr Re:Will it fly? (289 comments)

I won't dispute your point, only remark that ntfsfix, as other ntfsprogs, tries very hard to be conservative, and bail out if unsupported metadata is found.

For my cases, it has worked correctly. One recurring problem is with a NTFS formated pen disk, that sees some hard shutdowns.

ntfsfix is the equivalent fsck.ntfs

It comes in the package ntfsprogs.

Hands-On With SteelSeries Ikari Mouse and New 7G Gaming Keyboard

lmfr Re:Model M (128 comments)

I'm a happy client of Das Keyboard II.

Enough cicky-clack to annoy your workmates, and a good feel to it.

Never had a Model M, though, so I can't give a comparison.

Also, I only have slight problems with the lack of key information w.r.t. the top row (numbers and symbols on top). YMMV, of course.

rh 8.0 for i686

lmfr lmfr writes  |  about 12 years ago Regarding the compilation of RedHat for i686, mencioned in the Mandrake 9.0 article (here), I gave up of rpm... I got tired of specs and sources ignoring the optimization flags, speaking of invalid archs, etc.

So I decided to go the other way around and play with gcc itself. I found /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2/specs and changed the *cc1: entry to:

-mmmx -msse -mfpmath=sse,387 -funroll-loops -ffast-math -malign-double -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-exceptions -march=i686 -mcpu=i686 -O3 %(cc1_cpu) %{profile:-p}

Let's see how it goes and if everything works. :)
