my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

scored an IBM Thinkpad X60s a few days ago @ the salvation army.  $25.00...!  it was sitting open on the counter, unable to load past the bios.  "there.s something wrong with it," the cashier explained.  i thought to myself, 'wow, i bet it.s nothing a little #! couldn.t fix!'

as it turned out, whoever donated it had [wisely] removed the hard drive but still sooooo worth the expense.  this is now my 2nd favorite crunchbang machine.  all apologies to corenominal, but it doesn.t get any more simple and elegant than a 20s era Royal X with beveled glass sides...

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

You get cool-beans for using a non-Lenovo branded Thinkpad, and an extra popsicle for it being trackpoint only (f*ck touchpads... nipples rule!!)

Does the finger reader work?

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

hey, cool!  i didn.t realize you had responded.  i was checking out your logo post the other day. regarding your request for art help.  i was bummed i had found it so late, it looks like you.re already on a path with it.  for my 2c worth, i dig the one fallkon posted with the asterisk cropped to look like a funky arrow.  though i.m not hot on that font!

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

no, no usb stick.  i would like to try that method though but this is a full install machine.  been running it for over a week now and my only concern is that she runs a little hot...  other than that it.s a dream machine.  just flew to berlin yesterday and it was the first time i.ve ever been able to operate a laptop in such a confined space.

cheers.

swaag smile how much did u spend on th hdd then?
and yes, it tends to heat up a bit. if u have time, try to replace the cpu/gpu "thingy" (dont know the name of it in english xD ). your's has probably the expiration overdue.
and get ur self a home made cooling base wink or if your lucky, you'll get it at the SA too!

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

i spent $65 on the HDD  i think.  well worth the expense given the convenience of this little baby.

if u have time, try to replace the cpu/gpu "thingy" (dont know the name of it in english xD ).

i.d like to follow up on this, if anyone knows the reference...?

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

@ skid vicious

On the left is a true CRUNCH BANGER!!! A solid feel and a true keyboard sound, none of this plastic 'click click' or 'silence is golden' stuff.  And updates were only a ribbon away!

On the right a semi-modern super Crunchbanger (with teats as slobber said) and a set of wheels any #!'er would be proud to own.

I'd change one thing though - and that because of who I am ... conky NUTZ

I'd change:

[bash]mocp${alignr}MP3 Plaer
[bash]mc${alignr}FileMgmt

to

ALIASES
${hr}
mocp${alignr}MP3 Plaer
mc${alignr}FileMgmt

just to keep the smooth lines of the thing in place   big_smile

Must say though ... two EXCELLENT CruncgBangers there!

I want the wheels! - the real one! cool

As an after thought I redid my "default" conky:

aayauGVI.jpg

So thanks for your input and idea.

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

@Sector11:

thanks for the considered response.  i too am a nut for tweaking conky, though sadly my condition does not reflect the usual level of competence conferred on the obsessive.  and BTW i.m buying your advice re: smooth flow, see attached my updated screenshot--much cleaner. 

i noticed the "thor.............gksu thunar" entry in your alias list and have tried to emulate it to no avail.  what.s the trick?  this is my first foray into aliasing.  i can manage to get it to accept 'alias thor=thunar' but i suspect i.m getting hung up on the underlying root issues of this particular command.

here.s what i.ve tried:

vago@aria:~$ alias thor=gksu-thunar

vago@aria:~$ alias thor=gksuthunar

vago@aria:~$ alias thor=gksu thunar

vago@aria:~$ sudo alias thx=gksu thunar

each of these attempts returns : command not found
would love some help...
ciao.

Looks good ... has a better flow  big_smile

In your ~/.bashrc file add the alias:

alias thor='gksu thunar'

You need to wrap the command inside the 'single quotes'

Then in a termianl:

thor

enter your password when asked and there you have it: THOR - File manager of Root!

Re: my 2 favorite crunch bangers:

Yum. Thinkpads are always nice. Wouldn't mind having one of those to replace my netbook...

Reminds me, I've gotta get things updated on that old Pavilion of mine, I haven't really used it in a while... things have been weird and I haven't really cared for much experimentation lately. sad Kinda want to get it updated to 2GB of RAM, but laptop DDR is incredibly hard to justify the price for these days... (especially with a far better primary laptop.)
