Jason, you asked for a copy of Kali which I now have with the .iso
check-summed and written to disk which copy was verified. If you want
to get if from me before the meeting
on 16th of December let me know.
I have had a lot of trouble with my Compaq notebook in the last few
days and I might lose e-mail again.
If you write to me and get no response within 12 hours try
resending to blisssf4ever at gmail.com as I will
be checking my Android tablet.
For those of you wondering about the trouble with the Compaq
notebook last Friday night a regular update thru regular
channels broke my installation of PC Linux OS 2013.10 and after that I
have had lots of trouble with starting stuff from
the menu and the panel icons stuff that is important to me like the KDE
text editors, KWrite and Kate. I am sent messages
about missing KDE text-editor components and when I try to reboot get no
further than a black inactive screen with mouse
pointer and if I do Ctrl-alt-backspace it goes back to the login.
On Monday I went back to the 2013.07 release and it still is
complaining though I have learned to run a program from
the terminal and detach it.
I have kept my notebook running for several days now and fear that
when I log-out or reboot I may end up at that black
useless screen again. If the Compaq does this in the next few days I
will replace the hard drive which has been in service
some time. I won't voluntariley log out until I have the time for the
work after backing up the work done on this computer.
Oh yes I heard an interesting statistic that 14% of consumer
laptops fail and the suggestion is not tighter quality controls
to be put in place but that you buy an extended service contract.
