Ah yeah . . . I'm ready to join the hackers society . . . well obviously
it's a minor accomplishment, but, in the process I did finally look into
using the command line to move files around, so that was a learning
experience . . . . Just don't have the time to spend trying to get the
configured xorg.conf worked out. So, in that sense it is like "finding
treasure" on the internet and uh, "using it" . . . . If I could just get
the fan to stop blowing all of the time, that might be the next "rainy day"
project for the iBook . . . . Saw something in apt while doing the
"install hardinfo gist clipit" downloads for the QA tracker showing
something about "lmtools" and something else that looked like "fancontrol"
in "suggested downloads" . . . but the process of getting the QA thing and
bug report number was not going well, so I didn't do the fan thing. Today,
running "update/upgrade" showed "0" . . . everything up to date . . . no
Anyway, for now 14.04 is "OK" . . . .
