Simpler solutions

The computer’s sound just didn’t work. And earlier today I actually dropped the computer – for the first time, I should add. I also recently updated to the second Ubuntu 10.04 ???beta, and I started to panic—what was broken, what was wrong? I checked through the configurations and the drivers, tried out two different headphones […]

Film review: Veronika Decides to Die (2009)

The book is a true masterpiece, but the movie? This is simply a book that couldn’t be filmed. Not because of ?special effects or anything, but simply because of the tons of inner dialogues.

Film review: Alice in Wonderland (2010)

The only flaw is that Firefox now comes with Yahoo as the standard search engine, not Google, but that’s easily configured. Currently trying out the Ubuntu 10.04 beta, and […]
