He knew what he started, and it ain't over yet.

Some of the stuff here isn't to everyone's tastes, but it's stuff I often find tranquil and relaxing.
Fields Of the Nephilim - a big fan of theirs from some early days, seen them a few times in concert. Their earlier music began quite raw and gruttal, matured into progressive rock then into Pink Floyd type sounds. After a split and reform, they moved into grunge and dark metal, much of which I find too thrashy for my tastes, but there's the one or two gems amongst their collection.
Other stuff I listen to: Linkin Park, Vangelis, Sisters Of Mercy, The Mission, ELO.... told you it was a bit of an odd mix!

And I might just only buy 2x500GB I never use that much data. Can always replace the hard disks if I do.
Might as well get myself a christmas present so I'll be buying a notebook. I'm thinking of buying this one
What you think?
Nice and small, easy for travelling. And I'll be able to try out installing SL from a usb drive.

I've been exploring the wonderful world of linux for a while now and since lately i got myself a vpn connection from ipredator which i use at all times when connected to the internet
I've been doing some scripting to have all relevant processes killed and the network disconnect in case the vpn goes down, i guess i'm just a bit paranoid. But all that works just fine.
Now i've been monitioring traffic on both ppp0 and wlan0 interfaces with this nifty little tool called ifstat.
What i notice is that at any time i am connected and traffic goes through the ppp0 interface i get about 10-15% more through my wlan0 interface. I have no clue where to ask about this and can't find the keywords to google the relevant information.
So, if anyone can help me out here? is it normal to have that much more traffic on the wi-fi than what goes actually through the vpn connection? Is it to do with the fact that the data's being encrypted or something? Anything to make me wiser about it or point me in the direction where i can find more info about this specific situation would be greatly appreciated.
I put a small portion of the output of ifstat here on pastebin : http://pastebin.com/9NEa8Zar
Go easy on me, i know a bit or two about computers but this is completely new to me.
Also, i can't seem to find anything about firewall rules to have a single program/process blocked from using anything but the ppp0 interface, all i can find is allow ip-ranges and open-close ports, anything for dummies on that subject would be most welcome as well

A nice touch -- I think the installer detected my location as in the United Kingdom, and pre-filled the timezone and keyboard layout settings.

It is a beta OS, so it's not stable just yet!

To take a screenshot of your beautiful desktop you could either try pressing the 'Prt Scr' key (print screen) on the keyboard.... or if that fails (and it sometimes does) then try this.
Open a console and type the following:-
import -window root filename.extWhere filename.ext is the filename you want to give to your work of art. You can then check the directory you are in, and there will be the screenshot waiting for you.
If you want to add a delay BEFORE the shot is taken (so you can move stuff out of the way) then add a sleep command as follows:-
sleep 3s; import -window root screenshot.pngThe above waits 3 seconds before taking the screenshot and saves it in PNG format. That's it, have fun
