Re: Who can help where to find a wired mouse, which cord doesnt get entangled?

I had a trackman Marble which I literally wore out, I absolutely loved it. I still have a trackman of another variety around here somewhere, I should fire it up again one day.

Welcome to Minforums. You may well get thinkorswim running in a virtualbox. I have limited experience with VB, so can only offer general advice.

Re: What's your hardware history

I purchased an 8086 machine with 2x360kb floppy drives and 256kb of RAM. CGA was the state of the art, but I could not see the advantage of colour. Running DOS 2.11. When finally I upgraded I went 386sx with a HUGE 40Mb HDD and 640kb RAM. Still with monochrome monitor running Winders 3.0. Then an IB...

Re: What are your favorite movies?

It just occurred to me that, as we are a very cosmopolitan board, we might also say which language is used in said movies. Not all of us are multilingual, and something may appeal, only to be disappointed because we do not understand the dialogue.

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

As for the weirdness, "nothing" is a very unstable state so the the production of "something" out of "nothing" is inevitable therefore it should not be a surprise that we find ourselves in something. That I disagree with. "Nothing" has no matter, no energy, no entropy*... I don't agree that nothing...

Re: fileSystem is full

All of the above. And. have you set up Timeshift? That can fill your hard drive very rapidly. It's the main reason that I don't use it. That, and I am not afraid of performing a complete system re-load if something goes pear shaped. None of my critical data is not backed up off line. Hi I don't kno...

Re: New to Linux

The filing heirachy is not all that different to windwoes. You still have folders and file names. The only real difference is that you don't need drive letters. Once a drive is mounted it just becomes part of the directory tree. So, instead of typing D:/my folder/some other folder/ you just type /me...

Re: Timeshift save locations

I usually don't bother with timeshift always being prepared to re-install Linux when something goes awry. However. I have finally enabled timeshift and my first observation is that the save location for images is only on a local drive. Is there any chance of sending timeshift images to a networked ...

Re: SCSI Error on Write - Brasero

The report seems to indicate a medium error, thinking that I may just have a dud disk, I tried different disks, I even had a different brand. Then I thought I'd try to burn a CD, again, no joy. Just to make sure the drive was working, I put in an Audio CD and it played fine. Next trick, I think will...

Get a scsi error on that one too. Pops up on screen for about 1sec then xfburn just shuts down so cannot even get the full text of the error.

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

The obvious question is, "If our universe is constantly expanding, then, into what is it expanding?" Maybe, we (i.e. our reality) have always been, and always will be. There is no beginning and no ending, only our perception thereof. If this is not so, then it begs the questions. How did it all begi...

Re: [Solved] Where's the Trash Can, (Folder/Directory)?

I just right click on a file and delete it or move it to trash. Never worried about drag and drop. If I ever happen to see the trash can I just right click and empty it. Never bothered looking for it though.
