Thanks a lot and, any suggestions would be appreciated. Just leave a comment, send me an IM, or send me an e-m
The ramblings and zealotry of a high school student trying to pursue a career in science, and a hardcore linux user. Along with science and computers, you'll find some traces of my actual life, though the existance of a life may be disputable. And a huge Sun groupie.
Interest in math, science, or engineering manifests itself in many forms. Caltech professor and Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman(1918-1988) explained, ''I'd make a motor, I'd make a gadget that would go off when something passed a photocell, I'd play around with selenium''; he was exploring his interest in science, as he put it, by ''piddling around all the time.'' In a page, more or less, tell the Admissions Committee how you express your interest, curiosity, or excitement about math, science or engineering.Of course, one reason I'm really kicking myself is that I never got myself involved in an actual lab. I never actually did science at CENS, and I got rejected from some of the science programs I applied to. So... that's a gaping hole in my application. However, I'm hoping that the recommendations will come to save me and also that I can convince them that lectures are good!
"As if the cost of gas and food isn’t enough... politicians now want to charge you $.25 on every grocery bag. That adds up to about $400 per family per year!"Now they're getting mixed up here. The AB 2058 does NOT address a $.25 tax, that is AB 2829. AB 2058 sets up guidelines for the state's voluntary bag recycling program. However, if we do look at the CORRECT bill, we'd see its not as sly as they paint it at all. When you look at the bill itself, you notice that it acts "on and after July 1, 2006". Politicians are in no way trying to sneak a tax on us. A year is a fair amount of time to get accustomed to reducing or even eliminating use of plastic bags in favor of canvas bags. If by then you still refuse to reduce your use of plastic bags: then, my friend, you will be helping California out of its budget crisis.
This will affect everyone, but it will be especially devastating to low income families, seniors and anyone living on a fixed income. Plus, it could cost thousands of California jobs.I don't have much to say to that other then it seems like it was pulled out of someone's hindquarters. Yes the tax will affect everyone, but there does not seem to be a reason this would target low-income families and seniors. I mean... I'm sure they can find SOME bag to carry their groceries in, if they so desired. And the tax won't affect the store's prices. According to the bill, the store would be "authorized to retain 3% of the fee as reimbursement for any costs associated with the collection of the fee". As far as I can tell, the tax only affects the wasteful, which it darn-well should!
"With their unprecedented resolution, the latest images from the new kaleidoscope reveal that space, once thought to be isotropic, is actually continuously expanding, unfolding, and rearranging in a series of freaky patterns,"I'm sure the theoretical astrophysicists are stunned by these discoveries. Who knows what else the Kaleidoscope will reveal about our Universe. Even in our own Solar System, its been discovering new things, for example, Dr. Mae Ling-Turlington described Jupiter through the Kaleidoscope as "a dazzling hexagonal array of variegated prismatic configurations, changing our very understanding of the atmospheric patterns there on the solar system's spikiest-looking planet." Who knows what other discoveries the Hubble Space Kaleidoscope could make in the coming weeks?
mkdir ~/atiMake sure you have all of the dependencies. Don't Run the command:
mv Desktop/ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run ~/ati
Now go through Synaptic and COMPLETELY uninstall all of the packages with "fglrx" in their name you might have, for example: xorg-driver-fglrx or fglrx-kernel source. And remove any .deb packages of fglrx you might have by using this command:sudo apt-get install build-essential fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++5 dkms linux-headers-$(uname -r)
After you do that, you can now set up the deb packages. Just run:sudo rm /usr/src/fglrx-kernel*.deb
sudo ./ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/hardyThis makes the packages. Now you have to tell Ubuntu not to overwrite these packages with the ones in the repositories. So, you need to edit the file:
Where it says DISABLED_MODULES="", put "fglrx" in the quotes. So you'll get:gksudo gedit /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common
DISABLED_MODULES="fglrx"As another precautionary measure (I didn't need to, but you might), edit the file :
If it exists. For me, it didn't, so don't be worried if it doesn't for you. If it does exist, you look for the line:gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-restricted
blacklist fglrxand you comment it out with a #.
which will install all of the packages at the same time.sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.476*.deb fglrx-kernel-source_8.476-0*.deb fglrx-amdcccle_8.476-0*.deb
. If you've already done this, it should be there. If it isn't, then add it (without the bracketed ellipses). Now, run sudo aticonfig --initial -f. If that runs well, restart and see what happens from then on.Section "Device"

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stopThis will leave you with a command-line interface. However, I found out that if you do this, "startx" fails. By now, I'm discouraged and wonder if it's really worth the trouble to play around with X like this. I vote no, and leave it the way it is.
