Ubuntu vs Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 22, 2012
I am curious just in general, what the real difference between Debian and Ubuntu actually is? I thought they were basically the same, just different Ubuntu specific software installed on a Debian system but I have come across a few packages that stated they would not work on a Ubuntu system but can on Debian. So Im just confused now.
Is it possible?

I have an older Dell Inspirion that has Windows XP home. I recently installed a slave HDD, and installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS as a duel boot, Windows on the master, Ubuntu on the slave. Problem is, the computer isn't connected to the internet, so it obviously can't download or install updates, apps, games, nothing. Is there a way I can manually download updates or at least some of the games using my laptop and install them on my desktop?
Firewall blocking online gaming
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 5, 2011
I've tried installing both League of Legends and Lord of the Rings online and before the install even starts the installshield tries connecting to the internet and says that a connection was not made, and its possibly due to a firewall. I know of no firewall that i've set up that would block any signals to the gaming servers, is there anything else that is native to ubuntu (natty) that would be doing this that i can get rid of?
I have firestarter installed, but i have not configured it or set it up.
this is the error message I get:
"your system is currently not allowing access to our servers. Check your Firewall and/or security setting to allow PMD.exe to run/ Visit the help page or contanct us at downloader @pandonetworks.com for further assistance. would you like to retry the connection?"

I was following my own article, but after having activated the Hotspot as mentioned, I get the following error:

On my Android, too, it just keeps saying "Obtaining IP Address..." but doesn't connect.

Actors did this promo for the upcoming Carrie movie.
It's funny seeing the look of the customers seeing this girl freak out.
Anyway, I don't need a promo to make me see the movie. I am going to see the 2013 version because I love the first Carrie movie in 1976 with Sissy Spacek.
Cloning HDD install to SSD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 14, 2014
Just got a quick question in regards to cloning my slackware 14.1 install from a HDD to SSD
I've got a 64gb SSD as i've replaced the boot drive in my main (windows 7, don't hurt me!) machine with a larger one, so I'm wanting to put the 64gb in my HP Microserver as its boot/program drive. When i installed slackware in the first instance, i wasn't paying attention to the installer, as it's a little server i've got a few drives in there. I thought it was installing to the 250gb drive that i was using for it's boot/program drive with Arch, which is SDA, but it actually installed it on a 250gb partition on another drive, which is SDC1.
I'm thinking it would be best to connect up the SSD, use dd to clone the boot/program partition to it. It's about 15gb at the moment, so i'm not sure if i can use dd to clone it as i'm not sure if dd will try and clone the entire 250gb, or just what is used. I've had a search but i can't seem to see a better solution, really.
Also, once i've
