Re: Landing on a street

Yes, it was sad that an Angel Flight became an angel. It's a no win situation here, Angel Flight are a well regarded and charitable organisation trying to make a difficult time for people, a little less difficult. The pilot was trying to do the right thing, i.e. get the patient to the big smoke in a...

Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

It's always useful to have such a list if you have a complex setup. I used to have such a list when I was running that " other " OS. Now I'm running Linux, I just never got around to it, because re-loading the OS happens so rarely, and is usually over inside of 20 minutes anyway. Time was when I'd l...

Re: Landing on a street

It's ok, I took it as intended. Thread drift is a wonderful thing, but it can get confusing, sometimes. Yes, the drop bears was from another thread, but, really, who cares. :wink:

Re: Laptop under $700 for Linux Mint in 2019?

I'm happy with my ex govt lappy purchased at auction. Thinkpads have a good rep, here, mine is a HP-ProBook-470-G2 which works well for me.

Re: A way to preview iPhone photos?

Short answer. No. Long answer: Until Apple get away from their "proprietary" software and allow anyone to read their OS, No.

Re: Do you I think I have made a big mistake by buying a 720p TV ?

A TV is good for watching the news (such as it is) and not much else. I have no idea what resolution any of my TVs are and have never thought, "that picture is cr*p". None of them are newer than 5 years. The only time a Hi-Res TV is going to be an issue is if you are watching tennis or golf, where y...

Re: Setting up for move to Linux

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux. You'll find plenty of help and opinions here. :D Whilst Pierre is correct that you should look at updating W7 to W10 soon, I'd ask the question, WHY? Unless you are going to persist with windows on-line, and it is doing all you need it to do, I fail to see th...

Re: 8GB of ram, would more be worth it?

Back when I was running Windwoes 8Gb even worked well for me there and I was using CAD. It's unlikely that any more in Linux is going to be a "magic pill" that suddenly turns a Morris into a Ferrari.

Re: Landing on a street

Thanks, mac, I agree with you completely. We had always wanted to see inland China (not the tourist traps) but, owing to my wife's health, never expected to. She, sadly, could not go for that reason. Our Eldest (nearly 40) met a lovely young lady in Darwin (where he lives) and they married (both, th...

Re: Landing on a street

I'm with you there, mac, every country has its "issues" and like all "issues" they can be used as an excuse. I've always been a firm believer in seeing your own country first, but, given the opportunity, I have/would also visit other countries. So far I've been to PNG (as a child) and China (for my ...

Re: Images in L.O. Base

In Base, the only options you get when you right click is to "insert image from" and :"remove image" left click does nothing unless you double click, and then all it does is open the "insert image" window. The only way I can view a large image was via a button which loads pix. It looks like I might ...
