Re-use gift cards as SIM-card adapter... Very useful if you own 2 phones, one with micro-SIM and one with a normal small SIM and want to use both phones with that 1 card.

But those sites are set up in a way that you navigate to them by navigating to YouTube first, then changing a portion of the URL. It isn't a built-in YouTube URL trick, but it is a URL trick nonetheless.

Yeah, always be careful! You clicked on an advertisement that was disguised as a download button.

That's what I'm talkin' about! Who's researching THAT idea? When my body starts getting all shitty, I just want to suck myself down to a thumb drive. Send me to the internet. Plenty of stuff for me to do there.

That's interesting, because I always thought that creating styles in Libre Office / Open Office was a lot faster and easier than in Microsoft Office.

Anyone know of a similar guide targeted at non-GUI Ubuntu 12.04 management? I have a hosted VPS (Virtual Private Server) running Ubuntu 12.04, and interaction with it is either by command line or a Web Interface (Webmin) that I installed. It works very well, and it has been a great exercise in learning about Read more

Minimize windows as paper-airplanes is pretty awesome. Also, having windows burn up when closed was fun. The effects can be great to look at, but can run choppy depending on hardware. I miss having the giant desktop cube, making it transparent, seeing all your windows lifted up off of each side, even making gears

Great guide. I feel that it's important to achieve familiarity coming from a windows environment; that said, I personally found Ubuntu 12 all too familiar, and opted for Arch. Becoming a Linux user means learning Linux, and the best way to learn is to do everything wrong once or twice.

Mistakes are expected, but learn from them. Use of a spell checker should be something you use before you post anything both in browser and a word processor. Having someone proof read things is also a good rule of thumb.

For beginners coming from Windows, Linux Mint (KDE to look like Mac Apple OS :P).

I am blogging for the first time, please don't compare me to the writers of Lifehacker, and i am 16 by the way. Mistrakes are expected to be there. And don't people learn from their mistrakes?

Ubuntu lost me when they switched to Unity. Like a lot of people, I switched over to Linux Mint Cinnamon. I have this installed on a second hard drive on my laptop. I use it on rare occasion. There's just a few things that still cheese me off about it, through no fault of any of the wonderful people who contribute Read more
