A fresh copy of a 32-bit Gutsy

After all, I couldn't get the java applets work under 64-bit Gutsy. As these were necessary for my internet banking I had to do something about it - I installed 32-bit Ubuntu Gutsy.

And now it works. Firefox with Java applets.
Now I'll have to try everything I tried until now again to find out if they work under 32-bit. (As soon as I get back my pen from the service.)

cib.hu java small applet vs firefox and opera

After wasting nearly 10 hours total I finally got the youtube constantly working on 64-bit firefox (2).

However there is this site www.cib.hu which has this little button at the top-right side of the page under the title "CIB INTERNET BANK" called "Belépés". I just couldn't get the applet it opens to work.

I tried epiphany but the result was the same. I almost thought I had some problems with my ubuntu when I downloaded Opera and it worked like magic.

testing the battery again

Almost idle all the time it went around 10 hours today. I had some difficulties so I will try this kind of use tomorrow again.

Testing my new Ultra Capacity Travel Battery

I got this EJ092AA HP 12 cell Ultra-Capacity Travel Battery yesterday. I charged it for around 14 hours, and checked it out. My primary Battery was also fully charged.
I gave a hard time to them: CPU was running around 50% and memory around 30% all the time.

The result is a total of 4 hours (and 4 minutes) runtime with the 2 batteries used together.

Just in fact:

The 12 cell ultra-capacity battery adds + 0,803 kg-s to the 2,1 kg-s Alice already has. So it's nothing that you can call funny. I can hold it on one arm for no longer, and it gets out of balance because the weight is attached on the side and not everywhere. And it looks pretty awful too: the battery hangs out on the back 3 cm-s. I'll try to post some photos, to show it.

Positive is that I got a bunch of AC cables - every kind of specific country types.

I'm still thinking to send it back and buy some simple primary batteries as they are cheaper smaller and lighter. You only have to do a restart when changing them.
