Re: Only in Texas....

Then how do you explain the natural gas fired electric plants being down right now? That is the cause of the problem. When those sorry wind turbines went down, the gas fired plants were sent to capacity and they couldn't provide enough juice. They got over loaded. The old "cascade" effect...

Re: Only in Texas....

Bring in the snow to flush the toilets. Lake is probably frozen, so you'll have to thaw anyhow. I read someone brought snow inside for toilet flushing, but it was not warm enough inside for it to melt because they still had no power. Another person said it was 37F inside the house. :shock: Someone ...

Re: Only in Texas....

I live north/northwest of Houston, Tx and my power came back on at 12:25 am. Just a little over an hour ago as I type this. When the power came back on, my home was 50 degrees F inside the house. Needless to say I've got the heater back on and running at this time and right now inside the house, the...

Mint 20.1 has been approved for stable release which you can see at the link below.

Re: Failed To Fetch Firefox 80.0.1

The way I see it, since Firefox is my backup browser for Mint 20, if the server for 80.0.1 is still not functioning properly by this upcoming Tuesday (9-15), I will just ignore this update and wait for Firefox 81.0 which will be released by Mozilla for Windows on 9-22-2020 and the linux version for ...

Re: Failed To Fetch Fireox 80.0.1

Maybe it is a temporary issue with the mirror you are using? If you click Refresh does it refresh or give an error message? I clicked on Refresh and after putting in my password for authentication, I received the same error prompt. Looks like I'll have to just wait and see what happens. As a side n...

I use the Ekoru search engine. Since I came from the maritime industry, Ekoru raises funds for the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup. And Ekoru doesn't store your data. If you want to check it out, the link to it is below.

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Before Brian Johnson was the lead vocalist for AC/DC, he was with the band named, Geordie and he was their lead vocalist. And if you're familiar with AC/DC, then you'll instantly recognize Brian's voice.
