  1. Hi I had that on my old PC before it crashed Just in case it asks me, this laptop is 64bit after burning the target tower PC is 32bit, will it make any difference if I change to default download location for IMGBurn on this laptop or just leave it as is; what ever is set? The reason I ask this when I downloaded InfraRecorder, I changed the default location from Program Files (x86) to the plain Program Files folder? Could that be where I was going wrong. Regards El Tel Edit PS I mean when I install it, as it default to a download folder under user El Tel on this silly Vista Home LapTop... Mind you, I better not mock it at least its working
  2. Hi Thats sounds logical. I thought what the heck, I can't do anymore damage I hit 'c' Which gave me a list to choose from, I saw boot along with loads of other, I typed it in and pressed enter, reply kernel not loaded, as I saw kernel; I typed that in see I'll clutch at any straws. Yes you guessed none worked. So just before I left it, I pressed Re-Start one last time, and this time it booted as far as, top left hand corner 8042809F two Icons at the bottom centre. The left looks like a keyboard next = then they is a man in a circle, about 5 or so seconds later error reading boot CD ( Reboot) Now I do see a maroon screen. Looks like I will have to burn another copy. Shish Kebab and I thought I'd worked this ISO burning out Regards El Tel
  3. Hi JackeL As is right now as last post above sitting there waiting for an input. No I see no purple/maroon screen with the new CD I burned. Yet when I use the CD sent by Ubuntu via snail mail it boots up just fine and installs ok but doesn't like the up-date bit over the the Internet, indicating although it is only a 20G hard drive with 512MB of ram, that side seems to be ok... I can live with the fact the CD I have burned could be the problem, as burning CD's is not something I had much luck with, in the past. While the PC is as stated in my last post waiting for an input could I press 'c' (it also opened the tray with my new copy) for the command line and type something in there after or before closing the tray if it is just a bad burn CD not recognising the boot bit thing'y. Regards El Tel Edit PS Apart from what is inside the tower unit, the only thing's connect are the mouse and keyboard, everything else disconnected IE no printer, scanner etc.
  4. Hi If I eject the CD I have about 5 seconds, good game, good game to read what it says. After 3 re-boots, I managed to read it, as I'm a slow reader it. It Said press "Esc" which I have managed to do this time and there is a Menu with GNU GRUB version 0.97 (639K lower / 52300K upper memory) In the box Unbuntu, kernel 2.6.15-55-386 this one is highlighted Unbuntu, kernel 2.6.15-55-386 (recovery mode) Unbuntu, kernel 2.6.15-55-386 Unbuntu, kernel 2.6.15-55-386 (recovery mode) Unbuntu, memtest86+ Out the box and below is Use the up & down keys to select which entry is highlighted. Press enter to boot the selected OS, 'e' to edit the commands before booting, or 'c' for a command-line Now this is where the PC is right now This LapTop is 64bit but I chose the 32 bit when asked at download? Regards El Tel PS I've just had an E-Mail while typing this, saying I have another reply but until I submit this one I will not know what has been said.
  5. Hi JackeL I have 512MB I have also posted above about the same time as you a link to the last TechExpress having just signed in and dragged the last one relating to the PC before it crashed. Regards El Tel Edit Now JackeL post has gone?
  6. Hi Bruce I signed in to TechExpress and found this to the last one. I hope this give you all the info you need Regards El Tel
  7. Hi Now, now Bruce How am I going to get this information, when I can't seem to interrogate my PC. or did you mean take components out and read some labels My last TechExpress RM1M8WTQGWBS88PP is outdated which was related to the PC before it crashed.
  8. Hi. I'm downloading this new Ubuntu from Ubuntu . com it is overwriting a copy from Ubuntu . co / desktop / get - Ubuntu / download having followed the instruction from the second link and the Burning software ( InfraRecorder which I also downloaded & installed ) I have now burned a CD copy Woo Hoo so far so good... As you can see above something is on the CD with Autorun... Which make a welcome change from all the blank cd's I have from previous attempts years ago. Right now my problems start. Old PC with a secondhand test working hard drive only 20G but hopefully this is enough until I can source a couple of news one, funds permitting. The old hard drive which had windows ME on when it was originally bought, had it up-dated to Windows XP Pro' at a local shop now closed. The master drive has been removed because it makes a clock like tick tock sound and refuses to boot. I sent for a long time ago by Snail Mail ( As I couldn't for the life of me then, burn a ISO CD ) a copy of Ubuntu v6.06 that runs ok, until you run the up-dates it asks you to do to keep it running with better security? what ever. From the above picture I seemed to have worked out were I was going wrong as I now have the CD above. Placing it in the tray & pressing Re-Boot as my PC is set to boot from Floppy, CD then Hard Drive by default. I get the usual start screen up to the point where it says Booting from CD and it just sits there looking at then goes into; Auto to the Old Version Ubuntu 6.06, each time the same / similar thing happens. I've tried swapping the cd's from the old to the new, but it refuse to spit the old one out until it has shut itself down. Then it asks to re-boot then the whole thing starts again. Where am I going wrong... Easy tigers I'm still a prime ID 10 T PC user What is on the screen now, there was loads more all with [ ok ] * PCMCIA not present * Loading manual drivers... [ ok ] * Checking root file [ ok ] there was a load more but the screen has just gone black, but the hard drive light is still flickering from lit to off, then on again indicating some might still be happening. Um-mmm now it has Re-Booted, so it looks like the whole process will start again. Regards El Tel
  9. Hi Spot on, at least we have that straight; reinstating our / your "Freedom Of Choice" Sidewalk = Pavement here Unless the pavement immediately outside your premises are owned by or is part of the property and fenced off, then not even drinks are allowed outside to drink here in the UK. Yet non smokers don't seem to fight for their rights, when a lot of pub in the UK are within yards of a busy road. Carbon Monoxide fumes is far more dangerous that cigarette smoke. And that can categorically be proved. Not by CHOICE Regards El Tel
  10. Hi I mave marked in in bold and enlarged the word Choice Regards El Tel
  11. Hi I can't see where you are coming from, this is far from what smokers are saying. Not one smoker wants to limit a non smoker on his choice of work or where he/she finds their recreation. All we smokers want is the "Freedom Of Choice" Spot on this, it is your "Freedom Of Choice" If you are referring to smokers, why should they be ostracised out in the cold in winter. We want our choice as well and all we are asking for is a separate facility inside so we can enjoy our pint in a well ventilated room away from non smoker. Not true we smokers are forced outside for a smoke, and it is fundamentally against our human rights. Non smokers want the whole planet to them selves. How selfish is that... Not one smoker want's that, just to go into a pub turn right or left whichever the smoking half is and the non smoker can go into the other side. See on entering the pub you and I have a choice... Regards El Tel Edit Several Typo's
  12. Hi I couldn't agree more, and admit I have allowed myself to get a little sidetracked. As in my opening topic, with a link to our "Your Freedom" this discussion is about your "Freedom Of Choice" when this Ex Labour Party left us with this draconium "Smoking Ban". Regards El Tel
  13. Hi Your second link, while my heart goes out to her and her family. Pneumonia was the primary cause of her daughter, caught as a child long before the effects of second hand smoke, which no doubt didn't help in later life. Regards El Tel PS And if this passive smoking is such a concern to people worried about "Bar Staff" then the proprietors should make oxygen available to all concerned staff. And I won't give up on my "Freedom Of Choice" until this smoking habit kills me
  14. Hi As your link is dated Feb 11 2008 Where he Said " Banning smoking could actually serve to increase business. " Around us this has not been the case with hundreds of pub closing. And this dated Oct/Nov 1999 "Smoking does not cause lung cancer" I would like to see both get their heads together and come with at least some half truths. Regards El Tel
  15. Hi Just found this on "Smoking Tobacco" Quote "The resulting vapours are then inhaled and the active substances absorbed through the alveoli in the lungs. The active substances trigger chemical reactions in nerve endings which heightens heart rate, memory, alertness, reaction time. Dopamine and later endorphins are released, which are often associated with pleasure. As of 2000, smoking is practised by some 1.22 billion people. Men are more likely to smoke than women, however the gender gap declines with younger age. The poor are more likely to smoke than the wealthy, and people of developing countries than those of developed countries. Many smokers begin during adolescence or early adulthood. Usually during the early stages, smoking provides pleasurable sensations, serving as a source of positive reinforcement. After an individual has smoked for many years, the avoidance of withdrawal symptoms and negative reinforcement become the key motivations to continue. Regards El Tel
  16. Hi If they had been, then a Non Smoker somewhere in the world; would have picked up on ( Has Anybody died, smoker or non smoker as a direct result of cigarette smoke inhalation in a pub ) and wrote their little heart out on the net and "Google Bots" trawling the net would surely have pick it up. Never mind "Brain Washing" Government bodies. All you get is comments on passive smoking and I don't believe that like I don't believe in "Global Warming" Edit PS Passive smoking to me, is no more dangerous than a Priest wafting around Incense in a church. Also smoking tobacco of some description or the burning of tobacco causing it to vapour either tasted or inhaled has been in practise as early as 5000–3000 BC
  17. Hi And nobody has died in a pub, smoker or none smoker as a direct result on cigarette smoke inhalation. Regards El Tel
  18. Hi I'll restore your freedom Slightly a different thing, but too needs to be addressed. I see no reason why anybody cant drink and drive, as stated they are both legal. As for what the limit of alcohol to breath is also up for debate. Me what ever sensible level that be, that should be as a guideline.Say the limit / guideline was 50 ppm and you don't cause and accident on your way home, then this has to be OK as no damage has been done. On the other hand should you cause an accident on your way home however minor and it is your fault, and for this argument your alcohol level was 60 ppm, the guide line was set to 50 ppm you are 10 ppm over that threshold; you loose you licence for every ppm over the threshold. Get my idea, so kiss your licence good bye for 10 years. Now that alone should be a good enough reason / deterrent whether or not to drink and drive. See I have restored your "Freedom Of Choice" The same rule should also apply to speeding. If the guideline / limit is 30mph and you drive at 70mph without causing an accident then yet again this should be fine. If you cause a accident, then again you loose your licence for every mph over. So kiss your licence good bye for 40 years. Now combine to two. Accident 10ppm over & 40mph over, kiss your licence good bye for 50 years. Job Done. I'm not talking about killing anybody in my examples while driving for any of the above, thats got to be a new topic.
  19. I have amended my post immediately this was brought to my attention and I opoligise to Wigan for the comment I made. Regards El Tel
  20. Hi So this is your "Freedom Of Choice" Now give us smokers our "Freedom Of Choice" to smoke in a clearly defined indoor smoking area that is well ventilated away from none smokers. Edited Removed bad comments and typo's
  21. Hi No "Smoker" wants to take that away from you, and even if this ban is over turned then may you still have your "Freedom Of Choice" to drink in a "Smoke Free" atmosphere Regards El Tel
  22. Hi Bruce and Joe seemed to have grasp what this topic is all about. "Freedom Of Choice" The rest are all missing the plot... Its about "Freedom Of Choice" the government should not have the right to ban "Smoking" in a pub when it is legal to smoke in public and rake in vast amounts of revenue from tax. This should be left to the owner whether to allow "Smoking" or not. Then you have the "Freedom Of Choice" to enter or not. I've started discusion where you can add your comment "The Dying British Pub" http://picturesinpas...E8C613BD41E!113 Regards El Tel
  23. Hi You have definitely lost the PLOT copy & pasting "Stupid Laws in USA", way of topic and not one of those related to ban "Smoking" This topic is not related to "Stupid Laws" but ones "Freedom Of Choice" as in the topic title. "Passive Smoking" the word "can" was used 6 times, "Smoker" 3 times. The fact that "Smoking" "can" cause "Lung Cancer" is the issue of "Freedom Of Choice" Why should someone be forced to cook food for someone to LAZY to cook for themselves. Exactly it is your "Freedom Of Choice"
  24. Hi What an absolute brilliant idea Bruce ( dam why couldn't I have thought of that ) forward thinking for you ... There speaks a man with conviction and common sense Now would I wish to enter his pub there you go... I've had "Freedom Of Choice"
  25. Hi You are still missing the PLOT... And this was not up for spell checking nor grammar fort = fought ( Combat, or fighting, is purposeful violent conflict intended to establish dominance over the opposition ) as for the rest of that line I will treat it with the contempt it deserves.
