My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

comment i just bought an HP HSTNN-105c laptop online from the previous owner. KNOW NOTHING...HELP
We do need some patience in getting started with Ubuntu. If that is nothing for you it would proabably be the easiest to put Windows back on: askubuntu.com/questions/133533/… - If however you feel like giving it a try you will soon find out that we do things much easier, need much fewer help, and if occasionally we do we have a huge community to give us a hand.

comment Can auffordern (etc.) + an infinitive serve to introduce a stretch of indirect speech?
In all cases the reporter quotes Tsipras but in the example given they obviously suggest that that there is no doubt that what he said will be done, hence they may have chosen the more direct binding character. But that's just hypothetical - we can't read the minds of the journalists involved.

Strict grammar is put indirect speech in subjunctive mood. But the reality is different. There is more than grammar rules to writing, especially in magazines such as Spiegel.

What about Too broad - because a single issue was not given. This would also cover single word translation requests where we mostly have too many options we can not resolve without context.

Just a comment but I believe that on a modern drive the speed may not change much from different partitions.

comment Please help with fine-tuning our new custom close reason
What about a headline for each close reason? I quite liked these in Pops' proposal, and I do believe they are helpful (more than bolded text somewhere in the body). Can we somehow try to re-install such headlines (my suggestion would be General Reference for the first one, and Copy Work for the second where people copy their work to here).

Did you also install the Brother Scanner settings package? Much easier is installing using the custom script from Brother - see http://askubuntu.com/questions/636363/how-do-i-install-proprietary-drivers-for-my-brother-all-in-one-printer-scanner-f

comment xfce 4.12 bluetooth support for A2DP
You are free to try out an app I wrote some time ago (launchpad.net/bt-autoconnect). I haven't tried this on recent XFCE but it was designed to work there too including Blueman support. In case there are issues just let me know (e.g. by filing a bug on launchpad).
