Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

I've got a few hobbies. My favorite hobby has to do with standup paddleboarding (SUP) in its various forms of flat water paddling, coastal cruising and surfing the waves down on the Texas coast. I have two sup boards, but my favorite one is custom made 11'1" x 30" x 4.5" @ 173 liters. Since this boa...

Re: Which movie about computers is your favorite?

"WarGames" has always been my favorite computer movie. Seems appropriate with all of the computer hacking which is running rampant in this day and age.

Re: Be more active in life..not just computer science

I'm 68. I learned to surf waves when I was 15 years old. Now at 68 year old, I've given up surfing the waves with a prone surf board and went to a standup up paddleboard (sup) where I partake in flat water paddling sessions, coastal cruising on the upper Texas coast and sup surfing the waves on the ...

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

I ran across some symphonic metal which is the prevalent sound from some European groups. One is the european group, Within Tempation with their lead singer, Sharon den Adel.

Within Tempation - "Shot In The Dark".

Re: Firefox ESR v52

Linux Firefox 52.0 ESR is very old since it came out in March of 2017 if my memory serves me correctly. It may play in Mint but it may not play nice with some websites since the newest linux ESR version is linux Firefox 52.9.0 ESR.

Re: IOT may be the next security issue.

I won't use anything which is going to have IoT in it (refrigerator). If it does, say like in a vehicle, I will disable it...............Permanently. If it can't be disabled permanently as in said vehicle, then I won't purchase the vehicle.

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Since I was changing out the fin configuration of my standup paddleboard (sup) in my garage yesterday afternoon, I took my laptop out my garage to listen to some music while I worked on my sup. The song below is in my music folder and I like this one a lot. The lead singer, John Cafferty has a voice...

Thanks for the tip. I'm another one who liked seeing the Levels in 18.3 and I don't care for the Shield/Arrows default look in 19. I'm glad to see I can now get the Levels back in 19.

Again, thanks.

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19

Surely timeshift should be optional for those users that already have backup/restore procedures in-place? When you installed Mint 19, if you didn't want Timeshift, all you had to do was to open your Update Manager, left click on Edit, then left click on Preferences, then under Interface, UNCHECK th...

Re: Mint 19 xfce 64 bit Graphics issue?

@ catfish2018 I'm hoping when Mint 19.1 is released in December of 2018 or January of 2019, it won't have this bug of showing some weird colors and/or briefly showing my desktop photo all scrambled right before reaching the Desktop. I took a gamble this afternoon and installed Mint 19 Xfce on my wif...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

I'm one of those who dislikes the new default Mint-Y. As soon as I saw what the Mint-Y looked like on the live DVD, I immediately went to Appearance and was hoping the old Mint-X was still available in Xfce. It was much to my relief. And that was the first thing I changed when I finally got to my De...

Re: Mint 19 xfce 64 bit Graphics issue?

I don't think a fix for this bug will come along for Mint 19 Xfce. I'm hoping when Mint 19.1 is released in late December of 2018 or early January of 2019, this erase/format bug won't be in Mint 19.1 Xfce. But, I've got a solution already planned just in case Mint 19.1 Xfce has the same erase/format...

Re: Mint 19 xfce 64 bit Graphics issue?

I don't think this is an open source graphic driver issue. When I loaded up Mint 19, right before getting to the Desktop on both the live DVD and during the Install, it shows the previous custom Desktop image from my Pictures folder from Mint (18.3). If Mint 19 erases/formats the disk, it shouldn't ...
