Oh right you were trolling, thats a relief - I just thought you were just a simple village idiot.  roll
Most people who run debian sid know that older ISO's are not really worth the download as they take an exponential time to update to current. That's not to say it's impossible, just tricky.
That goes for any of the Bacon forks of #! too, which are indeed taken down, the website isn't dynamically linked to the current release list, thanks for pointing that out Simon!
Best way is to get the current release and install that, then build up to whatever you want to run on it.
You can guarantee the b43 fw isn't on the ISO either.

As for nomenclature : As a Britisher, no doubt that a little sexual innuendo would make you feel uncomfortable. (how would I dare tell the wife I'm running 'threesum' and 'decomposed dromedary' on my machine?)
However the definitions for "head_on_a_stick" is actually making me feel sick for humanity.

So 0day, you'd better off by sticking around here and pestering these guys to make a sid version of "what-ever-it-will-eventually-be-called-once-the-logo-is-sorted-and-the-github-thing-is-too-and-quashed-that-guy-who's-already-forked-it-even-though-corenominal-thought-it-was-cool-but-goodness-me-better-not-mention-5£><-we're-British-you-know".

000webhosting is pretty good, you get a silly subdomain, but it is free.
no shell access though.
after a while they do put ads over the whole screen, only on some of my free (higher traffic) ones.
Or you could delve into the hideous world of putting your own server online smile

Compressors, good idea, if you disassemble the thing to blow air/crap out and not force it in.
Make damn sure the compressor is well drained, or has a water trap, so it blows dry ish air.
Otherwise you can blow a lovely mix of water and engine oil over your heatsink grill.
Make sure the air is at a reasonable pressure, not 200psi, wrong angle and you can lift the tracks off the PCB. crappy and not so crappy circuit boards alike.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news;

T43/T43p, R52, T60/T60p, R60, X60/s, Z60t/m/p and Z61 series don't use 24RF08, but more advanced security chips like PC8394T-VJG or secure storage chips PC8394 Tools are needed to unlock the new models.


Although that thread is still going. Looks like your best bet.

Sounds more like Payola to me (you pay them, your distro gets the spotlight, leading to more "hits" and thus a higher ranking), but whatever. roll

Is that not what I said?
Apart from the bit about higher hit count, which would kinda follow after being spot/highlighted.

Hmm, perhaps wait a few years until your daughter's a bit older.. cats can be dangerous around young children that can't "understand" them yet. Just my 2 cents.

More like young children can be dangerous around cats  ]:D
youtube cats are easier to clean up after too.   smile

I run a pretty tight ship...

root@honeypot:~# du -sh /var /usr
553M	/var
2.1G	/usr

You could wade through every file on there, scrimping and saving, but in reality as long as it has enough room to log on you can deal with it, now you have the tools smile

I can delete this, right? Will it be getting re-filled any time I attempt an update, or even, every time I power down?

Google says yes: … st11759150

Have a look through your sources lists. (/etc/apt/sources.list.d I think) To check, you ought not to need very many in there.

/var looks a bit big.

sudo apt-get install ncdu

run that with

sudo ncdu /var

or just / in a terminal - to find the dir getting a bit full, the help is on screen. doing / might take a while to populate.
You should be able to find the large file, then look at it, try to work out why it's so full and fix it.

Looking a mine, /usr is ok, thats where a bunch of important libs live.
My /var/apt was a bit full, thats where apt-get keeps all it's files, so you might need a

sudo apt-get clean

Nice tmpfs guide two1on 8)

I thought it was a "spy glass", in US English?
A looking glass would maybe provide a very reflective answer.  roll
