@lunduke About keeping files on a USB drive: When I had four or five different operating systems at once on my 120 GB Macbook, I kept all my main files on a teeny usb drive that I kept plugged in all the time, so I could access them from whichever distro I was in the mood for at the moment. When I got a System 76 laptop, I forced myself to be a grown-up and only install one distro on it. I kinda miss all the hopping though.

Maybe it's a fluke and it doesn't like my IP or something, but if it's happening to other newbies too, that would be not so good...
Well, this seems like good news... I hope other cities follow suit.

This is a new record for Rhubarb the Hacker Cat, sitting on my laptop while I changed the laundry for two minutes. She opened Seamonkey, changed the theme to this sweet silver style, and tried to email a link to the youtube video I was listening to. And fullscreened the original video.
This week's whoops: Using Alpine Mail, there's a reset password option - I thought it was the password for my mail account, not the whole dang system. Didn't expect that in a mail program. Anyway, that was confusing, but I've reset my password to the right one that I won't forget, and now I know something new.
