Computer Pains

So, I committed to fix that sister's computer.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh ye rebelious little one! You are putting on such a fight!
I spent the whole weekend working on it and I'm still not done. I had problems with Ubuntu... kept on getting corrupted images!
Well, it turns out that my problem is (I suspect) my DVD/CD burner. Using different software and media don't fix the issue, and burning the same CD at work works OK...

Gotta make a phone call to Dell tech support. I hope I have some warranty left.

As a sidenote, prepare to be scared: Jesus Camp is a documentary I have to see! Go watch the trailers. I am just... scared. I have this gut feeling that those kids won't end up as evangelizing soldiers of Christ, but more the kind of M-16A wielding soldiers of the government...

(Edit) It turns out that I did a Memtest86 on the little machine, and the RAM is bust. On the bright side, I installed openSUSE on my laptop and it even auto-configured my wireless connection... hmmm...
