Installing on wine - question

So, recently I came across a copy of The Settlers - Rise of an Empire in my cupboard, I used to play it on windows so thought I'd try and run it under wine, wine hq gives it a silver rating. To start with every time I tried to install the game it kept asking me to insert the install disc even though...

Re: Anyone got any interesting hobbies?

Play guitar and juggling, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2_j6kMg1co Juggling is great because you use both sides of the brain simultaneously which causes more connections to be formed between the two hemispheres of your brain :D It's great for posture and co-ordination and a bit of non strenous ex...

Re: ISO downloader via update/synaptic

There's probably little to no call for this, despite it being a good idea. Releases are announced and people will go and read the announcement then download from a link. If they're like me they'll go their local mirror and download from there instead. For something that might be used once a year, t...

ISO downloader via update/synaptic

Don't know if anyone has suggested this before, haven't seen the option anywhere within mint but i am still using 17.0 so if it's already available I've clearly missed it! :) When a new distro is released we have to torrent/download it via the mint website, would be cool if maybe there was an option...

Re: Hacking a computer using DNA is now a reality

Hm. I fail to see what is so special about "hacking a computer with a specially crafted DNA strand"? It is just another way of feeding data to a vulnerable programme which then makes this programme do things which it should not do. Quite a few applications have been manipulated in similar ways. Onl...

Age verification for the internet

(just thinking out loud here but welcome your thoughts) The UK plans to introduce age verification for adult sites from 2018 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40630582 Which in itself isn't a bad idea if it stops kids accessing adult sites, but the article mentions concerns with telling card comp...

Re: Verifying ISO - no trusted sig

From https://linuxmint.com/verify.php: The output of the last command should tell you that the file signature is 'good' and that it was signed with the following key: A25BAE09. So the output is as expected and the ISO is good. The warning is just saying you haven't said "I trust this key". Thanks f...
