  1. Lol lightweight KDE sounds like an oxymoron to me . KDE does look great though. Anybody here use/have used Arch? My friends are pushing me to try it, but I don't see what makes it so much better than Debian or Puppy.
  2. They don't give you the correct permissions to back up your own site? I've never even seen such a thing! Glad you gave them the boot, it's a really idiotic move on their part.
  3. I've never really even used vimeo. It seems ok, but I'll still continue using YouTube because it's what I've been using all along and change is scary...
  4. Now that is one decked out machine. I'll admit it - I'm insanely jealous of you right now. They even included the Oculus Rift! Have fun with your goodies
  5. I've actually have tried over and over again but I just really suck at anything artistic in general. Definitely more strong in the coding department, so I'm pretty content on sticking with that. Graphic design has always impressed me; Maybe I'll go at it one more time.

  7. Well from a security standpoint you should get your own VPS as soon as possible. Shared hosting is poses a great risk if your website was targeted. Even if your site is completely secure, the attacker could simple gain access to the server from another site on the same box. From there he could root or symlink in order to do harm to your site. Many web hosts (Especially free ones) use don't have the proper measures in place to prevent this. It you cost you a fair amount more though, and unless your running a controversial site there's an extremely small list of someone trying to target you. Just something to think about.
  8. I personally use Firefox because of they're large library of Plugins and Themes. I like to customize software as much as possible, and Firefox allows me to do that with ease. Chrome is indeed faster, but not so much that it would make me switch.
  9. Python is go to language for everyday script writing, but I also have knowledge in HTML, JavaScript, and PHP. I've just started beginning C and it's proving to be a bit harder than the other ones. Python is my favorite by far though.
  10. I've heard a few friends of mine talk about Puppy Linux before although I never really looked into it myself. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll be sure to try it out!
  11. Hey guys! I'm new here and I figured that I'd see what distros you all like the best. Personally, I have always used a debian based distro when it comes to linux. My current setup is Debian Squeeze with XFCE installed as the desktop environment. I like it becuase it's superfast on my old PC, and there's little to no bloatware. It's also a great distro to try out if you're new to linux. You'll learn a lot, but you won't be overwhelmed as if you dove right into Arch or BSD. So what's your favorite distro at the moment or what are you currently using?
