Re: Downloading part of a webpage with wget

I've never used wget but this prompted my curiosity as I use a local server to build websites offline. I googled wget and used a couple of examples to try it out on a Wordpress website. Haha, great. Even a newb can occasionally open a veteran's eyes to something every now and then. :) True. I did a...

Re: What's the future of Linux Mint?

I'm not sure about this Lunduke individual but I also don't think Google Fuchsia can be that easily written off. If it survives and develops such that it becomes desktop ready (for the masses) it may well be a future threat to Linux distros and Windows. I watched a recent video ( https://www.youtube...

Re: Headphones...

Re: Off this morning for first covid 19 vaccine jab

In my early 60s so no idea when it'll be offered to me here in Ireland. Having said that, I'm not too bothered how long I have to wait on the basis it'll come along at some point anyway. My understanding is that even with the jab you still have to follow all the rules until mass vaccination complete...

Re: Nemo, how to open a second window ?

LM Cinnamon 19.3 here, in Nemo either go to 'File' and select 'New Window' or do CTR/N, or
if you want a second tab - 'File' / 'New Tab', or do CTR/T, or
if you want a split dual pane go to 'View" and select 'Extra Pane' or do F3.

When there, highlight the URL in the address bar and drag it on to your desktop. To rename the icon, right click on it and select 'Rename'. Maybe change it to something li...

The other issue is manipulation that is done through data collection.
