Google Hangout
Posted: Wintermute @ Sat Oct 22, 2011 3:49 pm

Anyone have a copy of an older version of the Google+ app? When I first installed it on my phone, running Android 2.2.2, Google Hangout worked. Apparently, one of tghe updates decided 2.2.3 was required for Hangout, so it’s no longer there. Alternatively, is there an “unofficial” Hangout app that will work?

Thanks, Ubuntu!

I decided, in an attempt to save myself a ton of work, to attempt an over-install of Ubuntu. I figured that worst-case, I’d have some ownership or permissions issues, but all my data would still be there. This is something I’ve done with every version of Windows since 3.1 as well as multiple Linux distros, and had ZERO problems with. The only trick is to make sure you don’t have the installer format the partition first. Apparently, the Ubuntu installer thinks this means your data is not important and to erase it anyway before installing. At least before this attempt, I could mount the partition and copy files by hand. Now, it’s all gone. And with it, so is Ubuntu from my PC. Never again! I’m sticking with Slackware from now on…

Goodbye, Ubuntu

When Ubuntu 11.04 came out, I immediately switched back to the “classic” gnome desktop because, well, I hated Unity. When I just upgraded to 11.10, they took that option away from me. The “classic” view that you can install is not nearly the same experience, so I attempted to manually downgrade to gnome2 to get me desktop back. Long story short, I’ve hosed my desktop and just don’t have the energy to fix it. If I did, I’d spend the time setting up my distro of choice, Slackware, on my netbook. Instead, I’m looking for new new plug-n-play distro that’s not going to take my preferences away simply because I want to upgrade the core distro. I’m looking at Debian Mint, but am open to other suggestions that are not Ubuntu-based.
