If you use Gnome and a dock like Avant Window Navigator or Docky you may wish to get rid of the default gnome panel. As the title of this post suggests it can be a pain in the ass to figure out how to achieve this goal. If you search the web you will find several methods the stop gnome-panel from loading. For me the method that worked was to open gconf-editor and goto desktop-> gnome-> session-> required_components and blank out the panel option. The next step is to make gnome-panel non-executable; issue chmod -x /usr/bin/gnome-panel as root. One thing to keep in mind is that you need to make sure your dock is working because the next time you login the gnome-panel will be gone.

What is wrong with these NFL owners? When I read the proposed overtime rules change I was sure I had seen something like this before. The game can only be won in overtime under certain conditions. Where have you heard of a system that works, but is overly complicated and useless. That's right it was the Ptolemaic system of astronomy. This is how I read the new overtime rules when I saw them on Sportscenter; "In order to win the Olympian war god will be in retrograde, while the in field fly rule compels an as yet to be determined linebacker to snot bubble the quarterback, but only if the line of scrimmage is being defended outside of the purple zone."
Here is a crazy idea. In the regular season there is no overtime, as has often been said by players if you can't beat the other team in sixty minutes you don't deserve to win. In the playoffs you keep playing fifteen minute periods until one team wins or forfeits.
