Not a bad quality case in my experience J03, have worked on a couple and Antec normally give quite good build for the price.

@OP That's a nice set up and the straight monitor setup is refreshing to see. What size is that one?

Just comparing it to his keyboard, I'd be inclined to say it's a 22"...could be wrong though.

Finally got Ubuntu 9.10 installed. Took my 5 hours or so to do it because I encounter some errors along the way. I would say about 3 1/2 hours were installing, and the rest were trying to get the drivers and stuff. However, it's working now, and I like it so far. This is the first time I actually get to use Linux fully without being restricted.

Finally getting back on my workout schedule. Ugh. Gotta get this XMAS crap off. Did 100 cruches, 50 pushups, and 50 core things (where you just hold the pushup but you use your forearm) last night. Back to my one solid meal per day and lots of high protein and lean stuff throughout the rest of the day. Lots of cheese and soy milk. Gotta get back to running now, too.

Anybody know how to change the dual booting thing to only being able to boot either Ubuntu or Windows 7?
The GRUB boot thing is showing like 7 different things, and I only use 2 of them.

Change your boot.ini

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022

afaik, the .ini is the same across all windows platforms so you should be able to edit the boot listings there.

Actually XP and pre-XP OSs are boot.ini. Vista and W7 use the BCD thing or whatever it's called I think.

Michael Gallagher's TV commercial really speaks volumes on the sad, sad state of our society. It's repeated at least 10 times in the last 2 hours on FOX Seattle. "My ex-husband filed for divorce on Christmas Eve, he ruined my Christmas, so I called Mike Gallagher and I ruined his New Years", then there's a couple watching this on TV (in the commercial) and they run to the phone and fight over it to, I assume, call Mike Gallagher and plan that civilized, fair divorce. The way the whole thing plays out in the commercial like it's some trivial joke, ugh.

You know he's reputable when his URL is:

When they don't feel the same way, absolutely man...absolutely. Happened over Xmas and New Years. Another shitty end to a year. But, it's 2010. I'm trying to look up.
