Welcome To My Blog!

I'd like to first say "hello" to everyone. I must lay down a single rule, and it's commonly known by many as the Golden Rule. Please treat everyone in here as you would want to be treated. I ask that no one "flames" anyone else, or say anything obscene or rude. This is a friendly discussions blog that pertains mostly to computers, music, politics, and religion, but not restricted to just these topics.

If you're looking for some computer help, then I highly recommend by starting with my first part in my series:
Computer Advice Part 1 of 9 - Hardware Terms

I also have a website I'd love for anyone to visit at http://webpages.charter.net/drkstlkr/

If you know someone who might enjoy this blog, then please send them an e-mail!

Ultimate Ubuntu

There are about as many Linux distros (distributions) as free software programs for Linux.  I personally prefer Ubuntu because it’s so customizable and updated frequently.  But there are many different flavors of Ubuntu, so I created this script (batch) file to automatically download and install many different desktops and common/popular software programs for both new and seasoned Ubuntu users to learn and try much of what Ubuntu has to offer.  It’s intended to run on a central, main desktop computer than can be used as a powerful gaming/multimedia center.  Installation may take at least a few hours, depending upon your computer and Internet speed!  Most of the installation is fully automated, but some software programs may require user input before proceeding.  Please watch installation occasionally.  Download the script file at http://webpages.charter.net/drkstlkr/Ultibuntu.sh

I'll include instructions of how to make this script file executable soon!
