Computer group I am volunteering with doing some good.

We are starting to write some very good stories of getting low income families computers running Ubuntu. We have many busy "Ubuntu installing" volunteers developed.

I updated the Indamixx on the Dell Studio. I can not get the sound system working on it though!

I spent about half an hour trying to get the sound system to come through the M-Audio Pre USB sound interface and into some headphones. This is on the Indamixx side of this Dell Studio laptop. Oh well, at least I put in some more time with Indamixx and the Trinity OS. I really should read the manuals for this OS and its softwares.

The Kubuntu Vostro 15 is now updated. More RAM needed perhaps for this machine.

I updated the Vostro 15.

It was very sluggish. I may need to invest in more RAM for this machine. It has 1 GB now and can go up to 4 GB. A 2 GB RAM chip costs about 30$ to 75$ so the upgrade could be anywhere from 30$ to 150$ depending on where I buy the RAM and how much I upgrade the RAM amount.

Remembrance is updated.

I have now updated the XP, the Indimixx and the Debian 4 on the home built PC I call Remembrance.

The back ups seem to be going fine.

Both Remembrance and the Dell Studio have had their Desktop and Documents folders copied to a network drive. The eMac has downloaded the past month's e-mail after copies were downloaded to the Macbook and the Kubuntu Vostro. Now this e-mail is being backed up to the network drive. For the above, I think I will make second copies on the other network drive.
