Hey Everyone!  

I need some help.  I have a Schecter 6 string (wonderful axe) but am getting string buzz on the low E especially from 2 to 7.  It looks like the neck is strait.  Anyone have any thoughts on this?

So, first thanks to all my G+ friends for help with questions I have had in the past.  Here is a new one.  I really enjoy the guitars I have now.  An Epi LP100 is my favorite.  Its neck is a dark wood which looks incredible, but the dots (I am a learning player) to see my 3,5,7,9 etc on the top that I use for reference are very tough to see unless I am under very bright light.  I am not good enough to regularly just 'know' where I am.  Is there anything out there to help with this problem?  Aside from years of practice, which, well, will take years.  If I had a 'feel' something on the back of the neck, a bump or something, I could probably work it out.  My wife suggested tritium 'night sights' (as a joke), but what an idea if something was out there like that.

Walmart sells sheets of small shiny brightly colored stickers for kids or scrap booking that work great. I used to use these for beginner students with classical guitars that have no fret markers at all. I stick them on the fingerboard as well as along the side of the neck. Two dollars or something a sheet.

Anyone out there use an iPad for music production?  If so, which one, what program, likes/dislikes?  Am considering it as I am using a Macbook w/ Garage Band and have had several people suggest the iPad air as a much easier and portable option....

+Boyd Zegers I'd start by checking the output of 'lsusb - v', to see what hardware is identified to the operating system.

Yup, thats a Hi Point carbine.  Good for her!  That little guy comes in 9, 40 and 45.  It may not be military grade, but it will do the job just like it did for her.  Congratulations for doing the right thing, defending yourself instead of being a victim.  GOOD FOR YOU!  And for those anti gunners, sorry.

3 pickups, more tonal variation and when you add a bridge or neck pickup on off switch so you can have neck and bridge pickups together and all three together you get even more variation. And the tremolo, it's a very useful tool to add colour to the sound; vibrato on chords etc

+Boyd Zegers Most companies with a reasonable IT department should have implemented the fix for now.

You just have to wait for them to issue new SSL/TLS keys AND signed certificates for those keys (should be done this coming week).

How come there is absolutely no information about this when you open their webpage, or when you start the program in Ubuntu? There should be SOME warning or information, however, it appears to still be possible to purchase extra storage even. That seems strange to me.

So, I have an ACER C7 series chromebook With the SSD (16gID?) and have decided to give a go with putting Ubuntu on it.  I am searching for input.  Whats most recommended?  Sounds like a dual book Chrubuntu works, but am worried about system resources and comments I am reading here and there on touch pad problems...  Any help is appreciated...
