I've been thinking about upgrading my CPU and then also making a new Linux/XP dual boot but on two hard drives instead of one.

Tantric master breaks record in NYC, stands in ice for 72 minutes
The Associated Press
Published: January 27, 2008


NEW YORK: A man who calls himself a tantric master has broken his own world record by standing in ice for 72 minutes.

The 48-year-old Wim Hof stood on a Manhattan street in a clear container filled with ice for an hour and 12 minutes on Saturday.

He set the world record for full body ice contact endurance in 2004, when he immersed himself in ice for one hour and eight minutes.

Hof says he survives by controlling his body temperature with the tantric practice of tumo.

His feat kicks off BRAINWAVE, a five-month series of events in New York exploring how art, music, and meditation affect the brain.

If you're gonna have a dual boot, it's better to stick with XP. Vista has secuirty backdoors all over the place, not to mention a system, I foget what it's called offhand, that completely logs and catalogs everything on your hard drive, down to literally scanning documents line by line of text. Microshaft was working intamdum with NSA on the OS and it's "security" parameters and funtionality. I didn't know OS stability and security somehow fell under the umbrella of "National Secuirty." How coincidental eh? Anyways, if you don't value your privacy, Vista is the way to go. If you'r not fond of Microshmuck, I'd say ditch Winblows altogether. If there's any Windows apps you need to run, you can always install and congifure wine. Sure it can be resource intensive, depending on what kind of app you're trying to run, but unwelcomed prodding in to your system will no longer be something you need to concern yourself with. Another "place" in cyberspace that has a wealth of information on many subjects and a vibrant community has had their servers attacked by multiple time. I know this for a fact as I'm in touch with the admin and owner of the domain. They trace back to mostly Russian, Eastern Europeans, and Israeli IP ranges. Plus we've had plenty of hastle with bots from know intel IPs (and proxys that aren't terribly difficult to route). It got to a point where we had to switch servers and even domains. 16 dedicated bots attacking one Apache server is pretty fucking intense. So I'd say sercurity should be a priority and concern. If you really want to spend money on an operating system, go with OSX. As you probably already know, Mac OS is solid and Unix based, nice and secure. Macs rule. Anyways, just my 2 cents.

I hear ya. I'm a fan of XP but definitely not Vista. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of Wine but if you REALLY wanted to be secure you could just run XP on your Linux through a virtual machine like VMware. Connect to the internet using virtual Windows while taking advantage of the Linux filesystem. That might confuse them for a little bit at least.

Dude, one word: Ubuntu

Or in my case, Kubuntu

Does it look like you'd need anything else? Take a look at my humble multi-desktop (you can't see the other two ofcourse in this screenshot, just the active desktop).

Windows is a crap OS and a crap GUI.

One thing the article kind of ignores is the fact that unlike Windows, the Linux Kernel doesn't have the GUI packed in to it. It also mentions that not a single Linux machine has been hacked via this supposed "hole" and no known exploit is know and a patch is already available. Nothing more than pro-MS great mongering on part of PCWorld. Take it with a grain of salt .

I have something like that on my box (Beryl 3D) but I have it disabled because I didn't see it as being necessary.

I usually like my OS's running fast and lean

I did. I was merely playing devil's advocate.

I have no allegiance to Windoze, I'm just overly familiar with it, that's all.
