Re: re-install windows on linux

HI jamesb7a, So far, so good. Yes, Google Voice is free to call anywhere in the USA, Canada, Mexico?, perhaps some other places and with low international rates as well. If anyone you call also has a Google Voice phone number then that is free too, no matter where in the world they may be. You did i...

Re: re-install windows on linux

Hi jamesb7a, FYI: I remembered that I have a couple MagicJack dongles (devices), the older silver one without the Ethernet Port and one of the first MagicJack Plus ones (black) when they first came out with an Ethernet Port.

Re: re-install windows on linux

Hi jamesb7a, You are welcome... Okay, so you have the older MagicJack because the newer MagicJack Plus does have the Ethernet port jack and would not require any computer operating system to function. But, from what I just read it would cost $35 to get a newer MagicJack Plus which IMHO would be bett...

Re: KeePass question

Hi tovian,

+1 for using the excellent "KeePassXC" everywhere. I have it installed using their PPA which also has deb files and I have downloaded and tried their AppImage file which also works great.

- They also have new browser extension add-ons, if you want to integrate it into your browsers.
