I guess our tolerance levels of what we consider "harsh" and "totally unfriendly" are a good bit higher? I mean forums like this one here aren't just "black & white" (friendly or unfriendly), there are very fine nuances of grey between "making a joke not meant in earnest", "making a somewhat mean sarcastic remark", "being downright awful", "being a forum troll and deserving a kick + ban", "being a real-life total ar**hole and deserving to be struck by lightning in the balls where it really hurts" ... I guess some people don't know these nuances (yet)? Oh well ... give them time. More time in forums like this one and they will get used to it I guess? Yet another learning curve for them to master ...marcus0263 wrote:Guess people don't understand Unix Geek Humor ..... Oh Well

I preformed the modification described herein, and I think it speeds things up somewhat; maybe giving a more solid connection.
However, I note that it slows the boot-up time, to reach a working desktop, in particular from the time you log in till your desktop shows up.
There is in between these two points a long time of black screen, with only the mouse pointer showing.
Is this normal in this case, or can this situation be overcome in someway.Anyone who is in the know please advise.
Linux Mint sure is a smooth working distro.
