I saw two of The Tuxers watching and waiting as I booted up my laptop.
I soon learned why. They had recently hacked my /boot/grub/menu.lst file:

In fact, it took several attempts to get this photo right. By default the flash is on for my Kodak C300 camera. I wanted to turn off the flash but didn’t know how, so I went inside to look for a manual. Unable to locate it, I then used Google to locate the appropriate manual page. It took less than a minute:
I noted the Tuxer’s message, but am begging off for a bit while I try to find useful instructions on getting Notes to run under Ubuntu 7.10.
