Sorry to hear of your loss.
P.S. After 25+ years I've re-enrolled at a local community college where
I'm taking electronics. I've got the brain cells firing up again and am
loving learning. I'm happy to report that the school I'm going to is
finally offering a Linux computer class (basic stuff) now and perhaps
they'll offer more advanced classes in the future. Been doing some stuff
with Arduino kit on Linux and hope to use it in some real projects in the
Years ago, I'm 64yo now, I was an electronics technician in the US Navy. I
became a computer guy and worked at that job until I retired. Long ago I took
some classes in electronics at a community college but they were way to basic.
I successfully "challenged" the courses, meaning I took the mid-term/final exam
the second week. It's a quick way of culling the nonsense classes, I did the
same for some computer programming courses at the university I attended shortly
later back then. I've been using Linux since RedHat 3.3something, I switched to
RedHat when I discovered that Slackware didn't (at the time) have a method of
upgrading other than re-installing. I'm watching the newsgroup to see what
problems I might have upgrading my old Suse to the current.
I recently upgraded my Acer Eee 900 from 11.2 to 11.4, and it went very well - nothing to fix after and all functions working. Now I'm wondering how effective that would be with a 10.3 raid system. I'm concerned about having to reconfigure Samba so backups are still available to my roomate with Windows XP.
