@lantech19446 Install Win10 and then install Ubuntu. Win loader only sees Windows, so load Ubuntu second and it'll shift things around and you'll end up launching Grub first. In Grub you'll be able to choose Windows or Ubuntu. Personally I found Ubuntu more to my taste so installed it and then VirtualBox and then Windows inside than, but then, I have a decent amount of RAM to be able to devote a good chunk to a Windows VM.

Sounds right, I do the same thing on my work computer but I never tried to dual boot because honestly I hate windows

I missed the chat on here earlier this week - yes, I have more than 15 years MSFT dev stack experience
... and I work for the Microsoft ASP.NET team. Some of you saw me present at the dotNetConf online this week: https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/dotnetConf/2016

@Alexander-Huh that's when you just get rid of windoze completely. No operating system should be able to control you like that

keep the links coming Jeff, informative stuff.
hmm... like MAC johnny? :laughing:
in a different sense of course.

Mac is just as bad but hey I can put Linux on both lol

Im so tempted to put linux command line on my abandon comp because my ex wife keeps snooping.

Jun 12 2016 18:07
@Alexander-Huh , Mike is right, @dcpking. You need to install windows first before linux. It may be possible to do something other than that, but it's probably not worth the hassle. I only ever use windows to play games, so I only have it installed on my desktop at home. The rest of my laptops and computers only have ubuntu.

If anyone is interested, I have free access codes to WintellectNow. I think its 8 hours of content can be accessed over a 14 day trial period

@csharpfritz_twitter Definitely, Jeff! I have 8 hours left today!!

He's done it before usually shows back up in a bit.

ok - thanks. BTW, how're you getting on with that PC, Jonathan?
Jonathan Herman

All done, got one more to do when I get back from vacation
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:06
Oh, good. I was about to say that I have a 500GB 2.5" drive you could borrow for experimentation if you like, but if you've got it working that's good!

How is everyone’s weekend going? It’s such a beautiful day today.

Sitting here at the computer studying R .... I'm not a "hot sunny day" kind of person, although I do like sunshine.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:19
There is a glorious breeze blowing through my house right now. Just enough chill in the air that shorts are questionable. Not a fan of bright lights, always give a me a headache (yay for sunglasses - got my first pair of prescription sunglasses).
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:33
Sorry - upstairs is moving out so I got called to help with a bed! ......... shorts questionable??? That breeze is 80F!!

You have the AC on? Me not.
Lily Romano

Jun 12 2016 20:34
Nope. It’s 74 in my house.

Are you sure you don't live down-wind from the polar bear enclosure at the zoo?
Lily Romano

Wouldn’t that be nice.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 12 2016 20:35
@dcpking you have ac? When I was in England no one had it and it was 90 degrees lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:38
It’s like everyone is getting ACs these days. Even when I was in Sweden, many people had ACs.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:39
"Climate Change is a lie with faked data" I was told just a few minutes ago ... I should have replied "ask the makers of AC units" ! :)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:40
HA!
Maybe it’s partly that and maybe it’s partly this consumer era we are in. Not 100% comfortable? Buy something that fixes it.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:41
@lantech19446 yes, we have AC (it's an apartment) but it very rarely gets to 90 in England (when and where was that?).
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:41
Well, now I’m warm…. stupid cat blankets.
Mike
@dcpking

@lilyheart "Buy something that fixes it." ... that's the industry motto for all of big Pharma :(
@lilyheart Of course, if you're cold, engage a lapcat

We have Ghealach and Cu Chulainn. Cu Chulainn sits on whoever is sitting in the IKEA Poing chair, or in the chair alone!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:47
gaelic?
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:51
Yes. Ghealach means Moon (she appeared outside the front door on a full moon). Realta (now deceased) means Star. Cu Chulainn was the nickname given to Setanta and means, literally, Culann's Hound. Look up "The Tain"
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:52
I had a moon cat as well. I was supposed to have two boys. This cat was insistant that their name was Luna. Found out it was a girl later.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 20:54
Yup. Luna is indeed feminine in latin
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 20:55
Cat knew better than I did apparently :girl:
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:00
Probably knew where to look :) (ok, Jonathan - I've just turned on the AC as it's 80+ inside here)

That’s a shame @dcpking I’m up to 74.6 here!
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:08
If it gets down to 75 here I'm turning it back off! Don't forget I have two denizens here that have no way of taking their fur coats off!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:09
The fish are the concern here. If the tank get too warm it take FOREVER to cool off.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:09
I used to live in London and Brighton, and also Bath. All some of the best places in the world to live!
@Lilyheart ice cubes?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:10
Fish are complicated :cry:
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:11
They're only icebergs on a small scale :)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:11
fish don’t live long in untreated water.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:11
Yes ... too much sewage, in effect
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:11
those fish don’t live in tap water tho! We do far too much to our water.
yup. Have to remove chlorine, chloramine and ammonia from the water before adding it to the tank.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:13
Good idea. I wonder if they all have good teeth because of the fluorides ? :) Put a cup of their tank water (from the tank) in the freezer for 15 mins and slowly put it back in the tank
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:14
heh. haven’t had many fish that have noticable teeth >.>.
125 gallon tank… that’salot of ice :fish:
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:14
Huh? Your fish have invisible friends?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:14
good news, takes forever to heat up. bad news, takes forever to cool.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:15
So try to delay their global warming. What I was thinking by suggesting taking some tank water and cooling it and replacing it. It wouldn't be foreign water, and it should mix in with what's there already
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:16
So our AC is for the fish. The mammels just benefit.
Jonathan Herman

Love Brighton and soho brilliant punk towns
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:20
Haha! I went to school in an area of Brighton called Kemp Town, 'cos the general layout was designed by a guy called Kemp. Went back in about 2010 and wow was there a change! Definitely able to call it "Camp Town" now!! :)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:20
Funny enough my across the ocean visits only include Sweden, Norway and Germany. Even though I was once married to a Scot (although he related more as a “brit” as he spent very little time in the area of family).
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 21:22
Great choice of places to visit / work, Lily. In fact, once you've got some web experience you might well land a job in Germany - they're permanently desperate for tech workers
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Jun 12 2016 21:24
Heh. I don’t know anyone there anymore. EU contacts at this point are narrowed to SWE, NOR and Finland.
Mike
@dcpking

Sorry - was folding dried clothes. All those countries are great places to live, too.
Jonathan Herman

Jun 12 2016 22:12
@dcpking that's sad to hear. I need to go back if for no other reason than to go to the Punjabi restaurant over in w2 I promised my wife a trip to Iceland and Poland though.
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 22:17
Oh no problems on that score, Jonathan - it was amusing just to walk into a bar which had had a reputation for toughness in the 1970s and find it filled with couples ...... all male :) Everyone looked at us ( my wife and I ) as if we were the curiosities :)
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 12 2016 22:19
Lol you want tough better find a football bar lol
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 22:21
Haha!! No ... that had been a sailors' bar in the 1960s/70s. Personally I don't give a hoot - I used to be a regular in Eindhoven at Bar Bilitis (the best lesbian bar in the city) because their draught Amstel was the best! They were surprised at first too, but eventually I just became part of the crowd.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 12 2016 22:25
Lol nice, I'd love to go to a manc bar though
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 22:41
"manc" ?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 12 2016 22:42
The nickname for someone who follows Manchester United
Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 22:49
Aahh. English football teams mostly didn't have "hip" nicknames back when I lived there. Arsenal were "The Gunners" because they originally played at Woolwich Arsenal and were, in fact, workers there. Tottenham Hotspur have always been "Spurs" as a simple abbreviation. I suppose it started in the early 1970s with Brighton and Hove Albion being dubbed "The Seagulls", because of the number of birds around the ground and the high risk of getting hit from them!
Anyhow, @lantech19446, I guess Jeff isn't coming back after dropping that tidbit on our laps!
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Jun 12 2016 22:53
Yea, odd.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446

Mike
@dcpking
Jun 12 2016 22:59
Ha!! Though they have a PowerShell course I'd like to try out
Anyhow, I need to vanish, just like it looks like Lily has! See you Tuesday or Wednesday-week? (oops ! Sorry Lily! You're back!!)
