Sometimes if I have a random app up, mine won't do that either. Product of Windows, I suppose.

Well, I probably won't care if I was making a lot of money. However, since I am not, I want my things to last longer so I don't have to replace them as quick.

My laptop battery is dying. It says "consider replacing your battery".
Kind of sucks, I only had it for a year and half too, however, I did use it heavily for the first few months.

Does anyone have ideas on how I would go about resizing my spare partition in XP? I checked out Gparted but it seems to have a high rate of failure. It doesn't even looked to be compatible for Windows.

Yeah, the little battery icon has a cross on it now.

My ubuntu rig just went all to hell. I am thinking of putting 10.04 beta 2 on it but what I am wondering is will I be able to just upgrade to the final version from beta 2 or will I have to do a reinstall again. If I can't I may just leave the computer until 10.04 is released.

I'm a Fedora fanboy. I don't like Ubuntu that much.
