Gowator Posted August 26, 2003 Report Share Posted August 26, 2003 Yeah, Gaming is of course a prob.... /Me I bought a console.... Of course emailing the games suppliers is one way and not buying Windows games another. School: Yeah well that's a bona fide reason ... like the ARM development. I think there are a few areas though which are common.... GIMP usage seems pretty high ... I'm the first to admit I don't use 5% of it.... Then there's music .... considering the real top of the range stuff is MAC perhaps this will change .... Kazaa ... etc... really should be solvable. I currently have over 30 gigs of stuff (mainly mp3's) that I want to save that is housed on a fat32 partition. I want to transfer it over; but I don't really know how to go about doing so. Yeah.... I know. This is a problem if you only have a single PC and are cash challenged. If I wanna do a data backup (including things like MP3's and AVI etc.) I just zip it over across the NW. This also helps if I have visitors etc with W$ machines. My NFS server also has SAMBA. This can solved by planning though. Next time you buy a disk ... just leave the old one in as a FAT partition....then copy everything across. If you help people out with hardware this is another great source of borrowing disk capacity. Like yeah, Ill install your new disk but I wanna borrow for for a couple of hours first! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
