Now I am sure I am being watched closely and that my many blogs on here and the one on Wordpress is being...interfered with in some way is I get impossible numbers.
But lately I have had this version of Ubuntu start having... odd prblems not only with speed but when it comes to CRASHING it is actually beating Windows 2 points to zero, lmao.
Firefx keeps stopping and freezing making posting to these blogs a pain in the arse so I am going to update it to 12.10 and THEN update it to 13.04 of Ubuntu.
I ran the 13.04 version from a USB key and it seemed to run OK and had proper AMD drivers listed in details.
SO hoping that the rumours and things I read about this being faster are true. I also think that little news snippet that came my way, about Canonical going out of business is far from the truth but let us see.Oddly the person that told me of this then said a few days later that he was going to install Ubuntu?!
Anyway right now I am well into the 12.10 version update and hopefully by tonight 13.04?! So I am going from Precise Pangolin, whatever that is, to Raring Ringtail and I will not even know the name of the version that will not be on y laptop for 2 minutes, lmao!!

Now..not sure how far I can get into this as I need more, not to mention faster SD Cards and/or USB Memory STUBS, lol, and time but I have ha both benefits cancelled so could be homeless in a few weeks putting an end to all my blogs, the ones with the false numbers presented to me, and my pursuit eo acquiring an income JUST...as I was about to start getting it...THREE MONTHS LATE AT LEAST, LOL.
Still I have managed to put PORTEUS on a memory card with a multi boot program called YUMI.
Alongside Porteus, which I thought was quite night and diminutive size and truly FEELS portable, I also added Linux Mint 11, which went wrong, and changed it to version 14.
I also installed Ubuntu 13.04 and that has been it for now.
I also have, and tryiing and managing to get my head around what they are, KUbuntu, XUbuntu, MythUbuntu, Zorin, PC Linux OS, SMS, SentOS, Fedora and likely a few others besides.
Now Porteus is designed to run from a USB Memory stick long term but I thought I could check out the others.
I did kind of like the GUI for Linux Mint with its Aero like look if I am honest but it oddly REFUSED o connect to my wifi hotspot and has been the ONLY Linux OS to do that?! A shame.
The trouble with other versions of Linux is that I am interested and hoping that something comes from the Linux Steam Client! As far as I know it is only available on Ubuntu and I presume this is ALL the Ubuntus?!
I was also shocked at the Ubuntu 13.04 as a look in the details section showed I had an AMD driver installed which probably means I can get Counter Strike to work as it refuses to under 12.04!
So I may do an upgrade especially as I keep reading that 13.04 is speedier that 12.04, which in all honesty can make Windows 7 look quick at times which for a Linux OS is somewhat shocking, lol.
I seem to have come to the conclusion, finally, that KUbuntu is a KDE Ubuntu and XUbuntu is a simplified X-Window driven Ubuntu?!
I am hoping to check them all out over the next few weeks and I would not mind having a go with Arch too!
I have to admit that outside of Ubuntu the two that caught my eye was Mint and Arch in all honesty. Now I have seen Mint I do thinks it is a better GUI but I want to play around to see if I can get the damn WIFI to connect and if the colours can be altered from the drab grey default colour.
I do like the way you can add widgets on it too. Had the more polished feel and look to it I found in Mint and oddly although I like the Unity Ubuntu look I did feel it needed work on the launcher as it is very limited in personalising it and that folding of icons at the bottom is annoying and fiddly and I had hoped that you could turn that off and just scroll with it.

Was bound to happen and been expecting this for done time now.
A prime example of a combination or getting TOOK BIG, testing on your laurels and worst of all thinking that you were do brilliant that customers would but your products even when several others are way better?!
Now you have the Samsung SIII, SIII Mini, HTC ONE, and best of all the Sony Xperia Z.
I am sure over the next few months you could add several more to that list too?!
Then they will release something a little better than the others I mentioned with the iPhone 6 just as the others are all about to improve their products again?!
Seems they have never manged to get it right ever since their rubber bands iPhone. You know the one that needs a river band to work?! The iPhone 4, it 4S I cannot remember.
Do not like the iPhone 5 either and whoever it was who also ridiculed Apple for not altering their User Interface on the UPS, well I could not agree more!
I did actually like that phone until that fiasco occurred.

Will be even more exciting if I can build that rig I though I would start building 8 weeks back, still better late than never, as long ias it is not TOO LATE, LOL.
Now I am not sure about how things are done at Bethesda and I am not sure of this means that they are now working on an Elder Scrolls VI or a Fallout 4?!
I get the feeling they have two teams one for each series but I could be wring and I have not had time to reasearch many things, and therefore make money, becase the UK government or SERCO, take your pic, are taking up much of my time with the reasn behind it that I do not work.
What do you call all these blogs then you arse-wipes & piss-ants, lol.
Still in-between wondering whether I will sort this out and if not whether I will be homeless first or starve to death, I do find periods to be excited even if I cannot do the research I need to do, lol.
I did have this theory that there would be a flurry of activity on games that will increase once the word was out that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on the Playstation 4 and XBox 720?! Indeed it may well be that this activity has been ongoing for awhile now and that they could not let that out of the bag as people may guess it was for the next generation consoles?!
I do sometimes wonder whether we should read words like 'are' and replace them with 'have' or 'have long since now', lol.
Now it has been awhile and I am telling myself not to get too excited.
Also I do not know if it is the same team or now and I have not read the magazine, well due to some financial constraints, upcoming hospital tests and6 other Hospital departments appointments and different areas of the government now trying extremely hard to stop me doing my corruption blog and reaching these appointments by nbow attemptng t make me homeless and cancel my benefits spending on anything has become out of the question temporarily.
Also a certain big company do not seem to be paying me when they were supposed to which was 3 months ago and the numbers are all falsified.
Yes so I am up against it all for the moment but I can still feel excitement about the return of Thief, lmao.
But I might have to wait until I have moved out of my cave or forest and have the funds to build a new Gaming RIG before I have the chance to play it?!
Never a dull moment now the yanks are running things?! LOL. Or should I say the WRONG YANKS?!

I did mention that when I fitted the bay and removed the optical drive that I then actually needed to go and buy an external optical drive to actually place Skyrim and Fallout back on the laptop?! Hahaaa!
Well I did not do a piece on the said drive, in case people were interested. Despite the fact that for a DVD Drive PC World where way over priced, there were ones available on Amazon for £8 to £10, when I saw who the manufacturer was of their DVD drives added to the fact I was in a great deal of pain I decided to just buy it!
Just as I remember of this name of Lite-On the external drive is a class act and works a great deal better than the Optical Drive it replaced?!
Also you get the NERO Multimedia suite with it so not really over-priced at all to my mind, though I did not notice that Nero for Windows was included until I was home and had removed everything in the box, lol
Works with XP/VISTA/7 and also LINUX.
Writing on DVDs seems to be between 5x and 8x and 24x for CDs.
SuperAllWrite technology supports all formats of DVD and CD.
Smart-Burn for optimum writing and...
Smart-X for optimum data extraction.

Well. What do I day about this subject?
Had this idea banding around in my nogging for awhile now. Ever since November 2012 I kept thinking I was only a few weeks away from starting it. I ended up not getting into position to make the furry small purchase. It has evolved a few times in the lengthy period where every two weeks I thought I would make that purchase. That is eight times or 8 fortnights and I an still waiting.
In that time it has changed a few times and now a second rig has been added and is the only sensible solution to my plans. After well it is an age old adage that says work and play should not mix.
Of course one of these is LINUX and one Windows 7, note how I specifically said seven?
Now presently I am using Ubuntu with Unity and still trying to understand certain aspects and why certain things are actually slower than windows, to my absolute horror and confusion. Whether this is actually down to Unity I do not know yet, cue Peter who I would like to here more about on here if what he knows about LINUX and why he does not like Unity. I want to ask as that is the reaction I have had from quite a few and one guy said it took longer to get striping to things and I thought I had solved this.
I like the look if Unity but I have noticed done odd things about it. When first installed the launcher icons were huge bit scrolled very easy and quickly. But you could not alter the size and there was no transparency.
Cue a big battle with AMD drivers and now transparency is in, size is reduced and oddly the scrolling is now very crap and this annoying compacting of icons at the button which hinders use. In other words everything is slowed right down to be useless. Added to this the unique and very much liked for desktops available when first installed also have vanished. Very weird.
I download and overall My Unity but that does not help so I end up downloading Docky... Unlocking the icons that go off screen and add them to the new dock but the dock springs up when I want to scroll a window?!
Also annoying is opening up the Pictures folder which takes forever to show all the thumbnails. Again weird.
My laptop may not be the latest or greatest but should be far more than enough for LINUX as it is for Windows 7.
So if Rig gets built for LINUX it may bit be having the same LINUX OS I currently use. In this time I seem to have amassed a fair few others and need to set one up in the next few days.
This one is Porteus and operated entirely and happily from a USB drive. I have also acquired more speed from this overall of Windows 7 too as I downloaded an ISO and deleted the recovery partition with Hewlett Packard's shit install of Windows 7 and all its bloatware.
Would you believe that, and I an still coming to terms with this myself, that Elder Scrolls V Skyrim and Fallout New Vegas run noticeably faster than before?! Weirdly I also had installed previously that Razor Game Booster before this overall that was supposed to speed up games by turning things off. Well if it did speed it up it was barely noticeable and better advice would be given to write down your Windows key, in case the sticker gets rubbed it, download an official bare Windows 7 ISO and then delete the recovery partition and do a here install.
Word of warning I always say to people, as well as making it myself yet again recently and had my bacon saved by Ubuntu, is get your wireless adaptor driver and make sure it is the right one. Microsoft have not learned from XP that the one driver you need to have on the OS disc is one that gets you on the internet as with that you can get everything else!
Oh and rigging Windows to refuse to come out to play when another child us on the block! Doing that towards software that is free is extremely bad taste even for the leaping lizard!!
Unfortunate things for me have been skirt than they should be as I spend took much time trying to show governments, organisations and companies the error of their ways asking with their more naive our just completely unaware public if how they are really being treated.
In so doing I move from place to place and down alliance after alliance only to discover even more shady behaviour and my plans seem to extend further away still. Like a scene in a horror movie our some dream like state when your running ever faster toward the end if the tunnel or corridor and yet it gets further and further away.
All this time the people you have tried to affiliate with ire explain things to are making money for doing nothing while I'm told I'm a bustard sponger because I won't broke my already hurt back because my government only see back breaking work as proper work while they earn money while on a golf course.
Still I think that I am very close now to either doing that or divulging something very serious. I have had to do some...other things elsewhere and attempt even...MORE affiliations in the hope of finding someone who does not use or abuse either people or their lofty position of power.
As fir those in lofty positions...it's a long way down! The higher the lofty position the further and faster you fall to the ground.
Funny as I thought this was common knowledge and it seems that these people have also forgotten that their are still icons and people that represent good on this world who will NOT be impressed once they realise the true contempt that us secretly held for innocent people and lives and the level and widespread scale of abuse and the number of lives have been abused as will as ruined and not forgetting completely ended over their amoral behaviour.
Just a shame that a great deal of this involves the Internet and this even includes BUT using the Internet too. The Internet is USED when it suits organisations and then NOT USED when it suits them and there are no excuses.
This is exactly why I stated on my corruption blog how it would be quite funny that I have twelve blogs as they will on occasion back each other up by certain things cross crossing across them.
This is obvious when you think about it but not do obvious that someone could be in a unique position to see these different industries affected, infected, utterly destroyed our remoulded to serve then as if it is theirs by some sort of unspoken right.
What bass been going on is that the candles have all been ignited st either end and what worried me is that I saw this a long time so and I knew that before long the wider public would see it too. Of course any lecturing each western country had done towards others would feel a set if teeth from a foreign country sank deep into their arses if they ever found out too?!
Maybe this is what is already going on? After all everyone and his wife seems to get hacked these days and it us becoming much more regular. I know others are aware of the things I have been even if they have not done the work I have. They might have done things in different ways to new but I decided there was enough already doing that and my more in the face approach, audio recording and trapping by luring them to let it out the bag would be a refreshing change to the norm. Also I thought it was one they would not expect and if I kept cool I could keep it going for a fair old while.
Longer than I thought in all honesty and discovered fast more and nite shocking things then I actually ever thought. Also with big names I would never have thought too.
It is a shame that things are this way and I hope that one day it is discovered not only HOW but WHY it ended up like this?!
I was told by someone years so that the owner of Barns & Noble was a Satanist and I know not whether this was true or not. But ever since that Jehovah's Witness stated that "it is like Satanists are running this country" those words about Barns & Noble said to me about 16 years ago now keep ringing in my ears.
It was such a strange thing to hear and shocking that the words always stayed buried in my brain somewhere. I mean I an not religious but I think that people that are Satanists are not only very sad but if willing to treat people like they have then are very depraved and very cold people and I feel sorry for any family or children they might have.
Hopefully in time things will change and obviously so and a corner is turned in such a way that it is obvious to all watching and that means all of us.
We certainly need to see that things will change to relive the gradual build up of stress I have been seeing on every day people. After all I know where this leads and its but a nice place to be. If toy manage to survive it as I did then I doubt that the vast majority of people will be able to hold themselves back and in check as I have been able to do.
In fact that is what amazes people the most with me when they realise the truth us how I did it. Not just survive but how I have not killed anyone, ended up killing myself or in a mental institution and various other things.
Sure enough if there was ever a digging up if my history...my God I would pity the fool who was tasked with checking all the days in here and anything else there may be as it would certainly not be for the faint of heart.
Yesterday my landlord say in my living room and he items his own building firm and items a number of properties in his family. I showed him my laptop and what I had done with it, the figures I had collected and then the camera 15 feet from my door and that they are everywhere but not on the Great Cambridge Road where all the stores are that were looted in the last riots. I said well they are not protecting the shops and businesses and from the placements in Enfield look to be protecting to Civic Centre which is the main Enfield Council HQ and in fact the pictures and movie I put on YouTube they were 300 yards from it and heading towards it as we watched.
Hmm well I think I roll get to build my computers but sometimes I think everything will just turn to shit before I do?!
I hope not but then these people do seem to be deliberately provoking the public further and further that I worry about what will happen once we have had a few Weeks if build weather and when the grip of the changes bite, you know the ones they keep telling everyone are both FAIR and that the poor will be better off?!
Well if council buildings end up getting trashed by objects our burnt to the ground then toy will be bloody wrong would you not?! Of course you skyway have a just of excuses as will as a list of people to blame for it all no doubt...
..only your are already in a tiny minority and this is getting ever smaller.
I dread to think what you're legacy will be but from the statements I have heard where Margaret Thatcher is being ripped off, find your bloody own lines for God sake, I would imagine they you have a very different idea of that to me?!
Somehow I think 2013 will answer all questions before it is through?!
Time..as ever, will tell.

It seems after spending an absolute age installing Steam...AGAIN and then an even longer age, or I should say several days thank to the NARROWBAND connection I then went to run...
COUNTER STRIKE SOURCE
Only it failed and told me my OpenGL driver was the wrong one or out of date or whatever.
So I fiddled about and was looking in the Catalyst Control Centre and looking for options and I noticed it was not on ...
MAXIMUM GRAPHICS PERFORMANCE and was instead on...
BATTERY SAVING PERFORMANCE
So I thought ooh it is using the HD4200 Graphics chip instead of the HD5470 Graphics chip?!
So I switched it over and it said it needed a rebooot...
In the desktop I immediately notice my launcher icons are bigger and no longer transparent and I am like uh-oh 3D graphics is gone...AGAIN!!!
I then go into Catalyst Control Centre and it tells me it cannot run there IS a problem as there is no AMD/ATI Driver?!
I then discover that the laptop ONLY HAD the HD4200 driver installed anyway which was bloody weird because the Catalyst Control Centre gave me the option of high or low power?! On the HD4200???
No wait?! So is there to power options on the HD5470M then so you end u having to deal with FOUR SEPARATE POWER OPTIONS??
Surely not...so they let Chimpanzees create the Linux Drivers over at AMD then? Jesus bloody Christ AMD what are you playing at over there?!
SOOOO.... my DRIVER UPDATE program has now been listing no less than FOUR ATI DRIVERS for my system and they are...
FIRE GL - or in English Red Rag to a BULL!!!
PROPRIETARY DRIVER (POST UPDATES)
BINARY Xorg DRIVE
PROPRIETARY DRIVE (the HD4200 one that previously worked)
Post Updates - FAIL
Binary ORG - FAIL
EXPERIMENTAL - FAIL
FIRE GL - FAIL
Start thinking crap the oroginal HD4200 will now fail but no its OK.
Takes a bloody age to install each one too, like 20 to 30 minutes?!?!
Anyway a few screen shots now of the different sections and my desktop...
Hmm not NECESSARILY in the RIGHT ORDER?! LMAO!
Will this IS a surprise?!
Just spotted a rack in my local Sainsburys with PC Games?!
Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion for £6.99 too?!
Head down there if I was you!
Truly amazed to see them just a shame they had nothing to interest me though...YET!
