Re: Balcony intrusers bastards!!!

Some people don't/didn't realise that the red light in the kitchen is triggered when the proximity light goes off in the balcony.

I wondered about it until Ryan told me a week or two ago and now I try and check every time I see it light up.

My upgrades from 8.04 to 8.10 were certainly less painful than 7.10 to 8.04 but yeah, I agree with you on the "keep them usable" front.

Any chance you can let me know login details anyway as I need them for the jukebox machine and the broken machine in the action room.

My livecd is 8.10 but I have an 8.04 kicking around.

8.10 has been fantastic for me. Little/no issues with upgrades from 8.04 on all 4 of my machines and it seems to run a lot faster/smoother/less RAM usage than 8.04.

Is it worth doing that, or should we stick to 8.04?
