abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxSurfin as you do, I chanced upon this titbit, https://openlibra.com/en/collection/search/category/ubunchu_spanish_magazine A magna all about Ubuntu. How quaint, but only five episodes --- hmmmm there must be more. A search threw up this very interesting article about Ubuntu in popular culture media. 2004 to 20.04 LTS: Ubuntu in popular culture Interesting but not that much information on ubunchu. Maybe Wikipedia can help, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubunchu! Plenty of information but no more episodes to read. Only one of the three links at the bottom of the site was any use, English translations (chapters 9-14) Ah ha this site has episodes from 9 to 14 and a link to the first eight found at the original translation site. https://gitlab.com/ubunchu-translators/ubunchu At this site you can download one .pdf file with episodes 1 to 8 in English and Japanese. I use GV for reading PDF's. As to translating episode 15 and the extras it seems that there is some hope as there is still interest as of 2021 at a ubunchu translation site, https://groups.google.com/g/ubunchu-translators/c/q_uISc4czYo So I can get to read chapters 1 to 14 but only with some fiddling around. Can I find a way to easily do this ? Maybe this site will solve the problem, https://archive.org/details/ubunchu-ch-1-11/page/n1/mode/2up So so close but no banana. Only 11 chapters. Maybe someone will upload the missing three one day. Finally one site to view all chapters You do have to scroll through the chapter which is a bit of a pain on a normal monitor. Luckily for me with one click I can alter my monitor to suit such a task. So there you are folks yet another bit of obscure penguin lore. Happy reading folks. Oh yes if you do decide to read the manga then this tip will be useful.
mkpenczkowski posted a topic in All Things MacHi, I recently bought a new Mac because my old one was stolen. My old one ran fine and did not have any problems, but the new one is very very slow. Its all the time not just when I first start it and popups come up a lot too.

Guest posted a topic in All Things MacI just found out that I can override (on a given application, not changing settings to everything in regard to the Gatekeeper settings. I didn't realize we could do that. I thought it was just the three choices. Period. Nice to know you don't actually have to change it to everything! Thanks go to Genex17 at BleepingComputer!

The Exceptional iMac G4: Ten years later
Guest posted a topic in All Things MacThe Exceptional iMac G4: Ten years later - Macworld Wasn't this also the cute little Pixar icon that hopped across the screen and drove the letter i of the Logo into the ground replacing it? Nope, that was an adorable little animated white desk lamp. Pixar was spun off by Lucas Films in 1986 with funding by Apple, Inc cofounder, Steve Jobs (who became Pixar's majority shareholder, and later sold to Walt Disney Company in 2006. That is such a precious thing to see that little animation on all Pixar films. Those Pixar animators can animate anything! And the Youtube video below actually shows why they use that adorable little animated white desk lamp animation for the Logo on all their productions. I love it! Very small video, little over 2 min long (good to know for those of us on capped bandwidth). Why Pixar's Logo includes a Lamp - Youtube Adorable... But I digress, back to the revolutionary, yep, revolutionary, G4 iMac. Yes, it was revolutionary, ground breaking, exceptional for the day ... 10 yrs ago in January 2002! Apple also introduced iPhoto for the first time at the same time as the new iMac G4, as well as making the ground breaking move to from CRTs to flat screens. And writable DVDs (first optical "Super Drive" featuring writable DVDs -- as you will remember the "Combo Drive" was CD/DVD but only the CD was writable, the DVD side was read only). The new iMac G4 also shipped with AppleWorks 6 (an Office-like productivity suite), PCalc 2 (scientific calculator software), World Book Encyclopedia, and Otto Mattic (a 3D action game). And it the first iMac to boot by default to OS X (10.1 Puma) instead of Mac OS 9. Interesting to note that all this was happening just as the original iPod revolution was getting under way.

Lessons for IT, Apple in Flashback brouhaha
Guest posted a topic in All Things MacLessons for IT, Apple in Flashback brouhaha - Computerworld It's clear that OS X is now a target of malware purveyors By Ryan Faas April 16, 2012 06:54 AM ET Excellent and well rounded article by Ryan Faas. He doesn't pull any punches which is I think a good thing. This type of article is very important if Apple is to grow up in this malware infested world we live in. They need to be open, honest, and quick to respond. ALWAYS! This is the type of scrutiny Microsoft had to endure when it was being foolish about malware in the beginning as well.
Mac Antivirus software
Guest posted a topic in All Things MacSophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition - Free antivirus that works simply and beautifully That's one free one, and of course there is the Free VirusBarrier (non realtime scanning) available in the Mac AppStore as well as the full blown VirusBarrier for what is it $69? And there is the ClamXav for free as well (also non realtime scanning. I would have listed Symantec but I am seeing too many issues with Lion and Snow Leopard right now. Any others?
