Six_storm, if you're going to obfuscate who you're talking to, you may want to take the time to obfuscate the window title too. I'm sure B3l0v3dAng3l122O would agree.


That's awesome!

Well, battery life isn't the best right out of the box. I haven't had time to fool around with disabling services, dimming the screen and so on yet but I plan on it. I would like to get it to have just as good battery life as it does on Vista (2 to 2 1/2 hours). Right now on Ubuntu, I get about 1 1/2 hours. Just watching a 10 min video on YouTube took 18% of my battery! :0

eg, you got any tips for me bro?

sudo modprobe speedstep_centrino
sudo modprobe cpufreq_ondemand

Look into powernowd too.

Thanks eg! speedstep_centrino doesn't work (does it matter that I don't have a Centrino?). I was looking all over the place for screen brightness controls but the FN (function) key combination already works! Yay! Battery life is a whole lot better now, but I guess it could be a little better.

Will do. Battery life was pretty decent today in my last class: 40% in one hour so not bad.
