Re: "new" computer

'no root filesystem defined' means it's not partitioned itself correctly, and not given itself somewhere to install. I could walk you through doing it manually, but there are lots of buttons to press in just the right order, so I can only give you pointers.

Re: the touchy-feely thread

I'm a cuddle slut. You should see me at meets... Understatement. I'm pretty much the same as Joseph. I go a bit crazy after a while if I don't get a hug - probably one reason I went crazy at university (three months with few hugs and no cats). I mention cats because I do love stroking them and hugg...

Re: "new" computer

Could be worse, you could be trying to dual boot Windows...

It's probably a simple fix, it's just the problem with giving is advice over the internet is you have no idea about what's happening on the other person's screen :lol:

Re: "new" computer

Maybe try plain Ubuntu then. Mint has always seemed a little rough around the edges to me, and now I've basically built my OS myself I don't notice the flaws.

Re: "new" computer

You should be able to resize the windows partition during the install process. I know you can on Ubuntu, and Linux Mint is built on it. (Although I prefer the Debian based edition, it's not finished yet).

Linux Mint Debian edition :)

Being a rolling release, you'll never have to reinstall again.

Re: biweekly chat?

From experience on the yadaforum, the hard part is finding a decent chat client. We have a little shoutbox, but it only allows 60 posts an hour.

Never noticed it, and it's only recently gone above minus 10c here.

Re: Plan B Ad

I actually don't see the problem. Lots of people come to AVEN saying things like 'Can I become asexual?' because they've had bad experiences with sex. This ad seems almost exactly the same. 'I could try my hardest to give up sexual feelings and talking to people, or I could sort my problem out'. Not...

Re: A question for the webmaster/forum owner

Jic, we don't expect the whole of AVEN to do that in the few weeks there were between starting the forum and opening it up...

We're invitation only until we have mods. Which according to my calendar will be... Tuesday.

We shall have a grand opening party.

Nah, we're trying to start our own community for queer aces/ace queers all over the place :p We'd fill up your database space in days, and drown out your interesting discussions with pictures of cake.

Re: A question for the webmaster/forum owner

We got a bargain VPS with Citynet hosting (In Egypt, lol), $50 a year or something like that. 1024mb of RAM, 50gb of HDD space and 1TB of bandwidth.

I prefer being able to SSH into a proper Linux shell, rather than just pressing buttons on a web interface, but that's just me.

Re: A question for the webmaster/forum owner

Thanks for the info. We're looking at $110 a year for a VPS. I can set up all the software on the VPS myself. As long as it runs a version of Linux I understand, anyway... It's going to be a community that'll hopefully expand to become reasonably large. (We're the transyadas of AVEN, and we're quite...

A question for the webmaster/forum owner

Hello there! I'm looking to set up a forum with some internet friends, and I'm just doing some research before we shell out for hosting. Only two main questions really, how much storage does this forum use on the server, and how much do you pay per month to keep it running? (Also, does it run on a d...

Re: Anyone else fed up with technology?

I like technology. It's useful, empowering and powerful. But I hate it that people spend their lives on facebook instead of going out and seeing those very friends they're playing farmville with, who probably live just round the corner. I hate it when you've been with someone all day, and you get ho...

I'd never seen the flag before I checked it after reading Puppy's post. Oooooo. The flag seen without explanation makes no sense. Not exactly a visibility symbol. Yeah, but think about the 'Gay pride' flag; the rainbow. Without explanation it makes no sense, but the LGBT movement has managed to imp...

You asked for a termination, you got a three year suspension. Maybe they expected you to come back?
