So I have an old laptop, an Acer Aspire 3004WMLi, that is on its way out. The DVD drive does not function properly, and Windows XP has begun some 0x0000007f shenanigans, only booting properly in safe mode, leading me to believe that the OS or some software therein has become corrupt—a problem that I could probably have fixed had the DVD drive remained functional. I spent this afternoon experimenting with a Linux live USB that I managed to throw together from Unetbootin and an image of Simplicity Linux Media edition that happened to be present in the storage. Unfortunately, this particular distro seemed a bit taxing for the 64mb vRAM and 1gb RAM that we had put in the laptop, running at only 2fps in XBMC [automatically booted into it] for about 10-15 minutes before the laptop finally overheated and shut down.

I know admittedly little about Linux beyond observing my father experimenting with different versions, and am not looking for a power-user sort of setup. Does anybody know of, or maybe even recommend any sort of light-weight netbook oriented distros? This laptop serves little more purpose than a terminal for web browsing when I'm downstairs watching television with the family, and occasionally used for Inkscape vector work.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
ZAFT Sonata by Seven-Fates
ZAFT Sonata
Alright, I suppose the entire point of this image requires a bit of an explanation. In the english version of Rainbow Rocks, Sonata Dusk is voiced by the voice actress Maryke Hendrikse. This actress, in addition to voicing Gilda the Griffon [a bird of prey crossed with a lion], also voiced a mobile suit pilot in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny, Lunamaria Hawke [a surname that depending on which origin you listen, also relates to birds of prey]. Now, just by the voice-actress link alone, I found myself wanting to be the clever git that I am, and dress Sonata up in a uniform from Gundam Seed Destiny—the whole gilda/hawke coincidence just solidified it for me.

So here we have Sonata Dusk wearing a ZAFT enlisted squad leader uniform. Now, anybody who knows the series realizes that Lunamaria Hawke, rather than a squad-leader, was an elite pilot and wore a dark red uniform, and you're probably wondering why not Sonata? Well, on the one hand, there's the whole color scheme clashing in my opinion. On the other, Sonata is a bit of a ditz at times, but having been a siren, she might at least [debatably] have had some skill in leading others. It helps that the black/white color scheme goes with almost any skin type and hair. Note that the high-heeled boots are likely not regulation.

This is a fan-work and the only thing I claim ownership over is the time spent to produce this image.
My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic, and Rainbow Rocks are owned by Hasbro, and Gundam Seed Destiny is licensed by Sunrise Inc, a subsidiary of Bandai Namco Hodings.

So I made supper tonight, this time with a completely homemade recipe. Such great food.

Very good supper.
2 lbs stew beef, cut into half-inch cubes
3 large potatoes, cubed
1 large carrot, diced
1 796 ml can crushed tomatoes
1 398 ml can tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed chilies
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 cup frozen corn
2 tablespoons instant beef stock
Bring eight cups of water to slow boil in a large pot. While water boils, brown the stew beef in a wok or large pan with oil of your choice. When the beef is browned, spoon it out of the drippings with a slotted spoon and add it to the stock. Add the crushes tomatoes and tomato sauce, and stir in basil, pepper, chilies, and rosemary. Simmer on a medium heat for 20 minutes, and then add in carrots, potatoes, and corn. Simmer for an additional 30 minutes.

Optionally, prepare dumplings. Serve when ready, refrigerate leftovers.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Not a newbie by any stretch of the imagination. I've migrated from my old account Makayo due to changes in tastes, namely in names. :lol:

Not exactly the old one, but close enough for government work.
