Re: How to connect 2 PC's which are in different homes?

Teamviewer has been working wonderfully on my machine (and smart phone and tablets) for over 5 years.

Save yourself some beginner "struggle" and try Teamviewer.

Re: Do I Reall Need A VPN on Linux Mint

I've been a Linux-only user since 2005 and only a year ago started using a VPN. Any arguments that "If you're doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide"...I will disregard. I will never go back to NOT using a VPN if I have a choice. You can either defend your liberty, or you can lay on the tracks.

Re: Bluetooth poll, do you have bluetooth working Yes/No

Bluetooth support gets better with every release. It would be funny if the day comes when Bluetooth works perfectly with Linux/Ubuntu/Mint/etc...and Bluetooth then fades away as a dominant technology (i.e. - FireWire) Yes, I know...people still use FireWire...you don't have to give me your anecdotal...

Re: Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

I'm an amateur musician/multi-instrumentalist and I do all my audio production under Linux. Proprietary audio production software can be expensive and licensing can be daunting...that's why I'm glad Linux is a viable candidate for people like me. Most of my projects are done using Ubuntu 18.04 Mate ...

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

Started dual booting in 2003. Wiped all Windows installs in 2005...been running nothing but Linux since then. Any new machine I get with Windows installed gets an immediate wipe...all partitions, including recovery partitions. It can be done, you just need resolve. If it can't be done in Linux, I'm ...

Re: Zen of File Management

One thing that I would like to mention about my management of over 800,000 files is that I keep zero files on my desktop. In fact I keep zero links or files on my desktop because in the Zen method, my desktop is my refuge from the world. When I look at my desktop, I do not want to see anything that...

I typically email myself the folder, or have it on cloud storage so I can pull it down to any new machin...
