My Wifi keeps kicking off after upgrading to 12.04. I can connect for a few seconds, then it kicks me off over and over again. I'm using an older Thinkpad T41 with Intel Pro/Wireless 2100 built in. I have used this laptop for MANY years and with MANY distros with no problems at all until now. I got this thinkpad with this Intel wireless card specifically because it IS supported by the linux kernel. I upgraded from 11.10. and it was fine since 8.04. I even installed gentoo on this back in the day and that was also fine...
I'm new to Minecraft, and I'm not usually big on games, but I would like to give this a try. Does anybody have any advice on setting up a client player for this on Ubuntu? Does it require the Sun version of java? I am using open JDK. I also notice on the Minecraft website a "Buy Now" link. Do I have to purchase the player?
I'm Rick Bragg. I'm in Burlington Vermont, (actually staying in Johnson VT for a while) I'm basically a 45 year ole hippy-programmer-musician-artist, living in the woods. Yep, I remember things like the first dial tone, first hard drive, Yeeeaat; Thins jst gon dawn hill evr siance... Til that Linox came along...

Maybe a quick mention about Interchange? http://www.icdevgroup.org
It's not made to compete with cms projects like Drupal, or even other ecommerce platforms like magento.
The thing that separates it from those php based systems is that Interchange runs as it's own service, between apache and your database(s).
It listens for requests from apache, does it's thing with the file system, databases, whatever, then passes back to apache to serve.
Also, it is set up on 2 tiers. all the "website" code is on one tier, and the base Interchange program is on another. That way upgrades only have to happen on the Interchange core tier, and all the website code should not have to be touched (sometimes though)
Anyway, it's not for everyone, it has a steep learning curve. It would be best for really highly customized sites that want to stay around for a long time. If you want a quick web-app, this is probably not the best.
One sample is a site that I made for the city of Montpelier Vermont. http://www.montpelier-vt.org In this case, I build a way for city departments to all log in and manage their users and content etc... Upgrades to new versions shouldn't ever affect any of that custom code.
