Re: Good youtube videos? or bloggers?

BigDaddyLinux is quite good too, he hosts live shows as well where he has a group of guests from all over the place, it is quite entertaining.
I also like Tom on Switched to Linux.

Re: Kids can't use computers

I am 59, my daughters, who are in their 20's, come to me with "dad, Netflix won't load", "my laptop is really slow!", "HEEEELP!!!"
I compare it to cars. A lot of people drive cars but have no idea what may be wrong when it suddenly won't start.

Cats and harmonicas

When I start to play my harmonica, my cat goes crazy, immediately comes over to me and jumps up on my lap, then proceeds to walk around in circles on my lap, he is very excited by the sound.
Has anyone else had this experience?

Re: Musicians on here?

I played drums back in the 80s, we recorded a 45...we sold about 100, mainly friends etc. It was a fun time. It was the kind of New Wave sound that was happening then. We also played a couple of gigs at local venues and once at a music festival, on a small stage for the lesser acts haha. I had a cuc...

Re: Anyone got any interesting hobbies?

Like old_noob, I brew my own beer, although I am nowhere near as much of an expert as he. I used to draw a lot, but not lately, and I like photography. Here is a drawing and a couple of photo manipulations of mine. The photos are of where I live in Gisborne, on the east coast of New Zealand. https:/...

Re: How I feel about windows

I am so over Windows. I started with Linux on and off with Windows. Eventually I gave Windows away completely and I have never looked back. I get a great sense of freedom and individuality in using Linux.
It's great to be out of the corporate grasp.

[Solved] Mate updates for Cinnamon?

Hi there,
I am running Cinnamon, so I am curious as to why I have received three level-3 updates for the Mate desktop in my Update Manager.
One is mate-menus, another is mate-panel, the third is libmateweather?

I don't recall ever seeing anything like this before.

[Solved] Synaptic Package Manager question

Hi all,
I am looking at Synaptic Package Manager, clicked on Status, and there are two lists I am curious about.
One is Not Installed, and the other is Not Installed (residual config).
My question is, should I remove these items, and does it make any difference if I do or not?

Re: Firefox does not have as many options in Options menu.

Hi there SyncroScales, this is not an answer to your question, but I have the same query as well.
All I have now, when I click on Preferences and look at the left-hand menu is General, Search, Privacy and Security, and Firefox Account.
There used to be a lot more options, including Advanced?
