Eight further suspects have been charged in connection with an alleged shooting in Newcastle.
Police launched an investigation after reports that the firearm was fired on Ridsdale Avenue in West Denton on January 4.
Witnesses reported seeing a man fire a gun at a car following an argument with the female driver at about 3pm.
The bullet missed the vehicle and damaged the window of a nearby home before those involved then fled. Nobody was injured.
Nathan Mackay, 31, has already appeared at South East Northumberland Magistrates’ Court charged with a string of offences in relation to the alleged shooting.
Mackay, of Ravenshill Road, West Denton, has been remanded in custody ahead of a trial at Newcastle Crown Court at a later date.
Yet Another Linux Distribution!
This one is good, not at all quirky, and just works!
Based on Debian, just like Ubuntu, but it's much less cluttered. Actually, Ubuntu really annoys me on several scores!
So far I was able to download the Point Linux 32 bit .iso (for those who don't know that is the CD data image file) and flash it to a cheapo USB stick using Windows 7 using https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer. It booted immediately from the stick on a Windows 7 machine as a "live CD" (i.e. without doing an install), and picked up ALL the hardware, including Bluetooth, WiFi, and HDMI video, with zero problems.
I'm aiming to install it from the same stick on a number of old Windows XP machines, so will let you know how I get on. It could be just what many people need to revitalise an XP laptop that's currently gathering dust. I'm also trying out the 64 bit version running under VirtualBox on an i5 lappy. Will report back on that too.
I'd previously tried out http://www.geteasypeasy.com/ on an old XP netbook. It looked very promising, but sadly the author seems to have lost all interest a while back. So... Easy Peasy Linux is no longer maintained, and therefore can't be recommended.

Was going to get one or two last year but I settled for an Olimex board, as those have a completely open design. Anyone in Bedders playing with a RP?
