Greetings!
Oy! Why art thou still here? Go to jamesgecko.com
This is Frem's playground for writing, posting code, and uploading small ahem games that he has written. Now powered by a million hamsters with typewriters running in treadmills, We feel it’s only a matter of time until World Domination has been secured.
You should really go to myblog, it's where most of the interesting stuff happens.

A list of things that don't currently work in my Ubuntu install. (but will, byUpdate: This page is probably useless for two reasons. First, I no longer have the laptop it was based on. Second, everything on the time I'm done.)
Your results
page is fixed! I will probably vary. leave it up for historical reasons.
I am running Ubuntu 7.04 on a Toshiba M55-S139 laptop.
Conquered issues
BSD-style bootscripts, a 'la ArchLinux
Actually, upstart in Eft did something like this, I believe.
StarCraft & & Warcraft III don't run very well
Latest version of Wine from official site runs starcraft great, WarCraft III runs nearly as good as in Windows if you use the "-opengl" flag. Rather, it would, if I had a card not made by ATi
Really, it's pretty amazing how far Wine has come. I can pretty much pop in any game (in my library) more than two years old and have it run decently.
Update: The university switched to a sane method of encryption, and Wicd can connect to it quite easily.

Linux. A sadly high percentage of the campus uses Windows. Sorry, Linux nerds. That being said, it's not hard at all to find a fellow *NIX fan; just look attend an ACM meeting. Don't worry about ISOs; LetNet has a frequently updated FTP site for most of the popular distros. LeTourneau also has a Linux Update site. Wifi details. Keep in mind that CS major-type-people can get free Microsoft development software. I dual-boot Ubuntu and XP, fwiw.
Video games. No, just. Don't. You shouldn't even be looking this up. That being said, StarCraft, WarCraft III, WoW, Halo, Unreal Tournament 2003, Guitar Hero II, and Super Smash Bros are rather popular. But seriously, you won't have time after the first few weeks. Of your first semester.
a 56k dialup 100kbs line shared by everyone over the limit. Dungeon is unearthly slow. You can buy more bandwidth, but only if you subscribe for the entire remainder of the semester. Use the labs and a USB key if you need to download big files. Oh, that reminds me, bring a USB key. USB keys are the new floppy disks. Plus, you'll be glad you have one for the English comp classes.
Don't even try Software Piracy. BitTorrent and most P2P protocols are blocked. I'm not saying piracy is not possible, I'm saying it's wrong and it's not worth it

Bandwidth Limit. Five gigabytes per month. Unless you download a lot of stuff, you'll be fine. Anything under the letu.edu domain is local and doesn't count toward the limit. Once the limit has been reached, you go to the "dungeon", a 56k dialup line shared by everyone over the limit. Dungeon is unearthly slow. You can buy more bandwidth, but only if you subscribe for the entire remainder of the semester. Use the labs and a USB key if you need to download big files. Oh, that reminds me, bring a USB key.

Hootenanny is a ton of fun, but don't enter a skit if you're struggling in a class. The show will eat up time you could have spent studying.
Ask for help. Chaplin Carl has told me (unofficially, of course) that one of the big issues with LetU students in general is that they like to solve problems on their own. It's OK to ask a professor to explain something to you if you don't understand it. Find out when the office hours of your profs are.
Along those same lines, tutors are your friends! They are also free; check into it. TIs and Math Lab are also quite nice.
Get organized. It's relatively easy to get overwhelmed by all the work being thrown at you. It (probably) won't happen your first semester, but it's a good habit to get into. Get (and use!) a planner. Online or dead tree versions both work. Also, it is in your best interest to start outlining. Again, paper works just fine for this. If you're more comfortable typing, I have three recommendations. TomBoy, OneNote, and Evernote. Which one works for you depends how you think and how cheap you are. OneNote is excellent, but it's Windows only. You can get it for free from the school's MSDNAA program if you're in a CSclass. Evernote automatically syncs your notes online, which is nifty for syncing multiple machines, viewing notes on iPhone, and/or computer lab access. TomBoy is a personal desktop wiki. You can sync it with your LetNet MyFiles WebDAV account.
Unite with your floor. Your floor will be the folks who are always around. You will eat, hang out, and attend various campus events with your floor. Why not get to know them? Participate in EO.
The precise details of Extended Orientation are classified. Most floors have it. It typically lasts for a week or so. Just go along with it. Keep in mind that you may (or may not) receive a nickname based upon your actions during this period of time.
Get Knouse for all math classes possible. I know Elijah also says this on his page, but it needed to be said again. I cannot stress this enough.
Check out Project Jumpstart. It's worth it.
We used to have an unofficial IRC channel, #letu on Freenode. Come and idle.

So, you're coming to LetU and you want some info? Right on. Information wants to be anthropomorphized. Have some random facts. Also, check out Elijah Lofgren's LeTourneau Tips. He has the more practical edge of the spectrum covered.

Changelog for version 3
- No longer asks the user where to put the generated wallpaper; it's saved to ~/.config/wallpaper.png
- File chooser defaults to the root of the user's home directory and remembers what directory the user chooses files from after the first screen.

Before lockdown, there was a lot of freedom, and most of the dorms were only locked between the hours of midnight and eight AM. Many students were unhappy with the sudden lack of convenience.

LeTourneau has a number of rich traditions. Making strange and humorous videos is one of them. On this page is a collection of links (mostly to YouTube) collecting all the ones I can find. Feel free to contact me if you've found one not listed here. The linked videos range from commentary on campus issues, project demonstrations, documentation of floor traditions, and general humor.
