Re: graphics card for Linux, Nvidia or AMD?

...... snip..... AMD is still offering both open source and proprietary drivers for Linux. Due to AMD releasing the source code to their drivers, the performance has increased dramatically to the point where there is no reason to use the proprietary drivers except for a few use cases. There is a ru...

Rummaging around and ......

I found this back in a corner.
Think it is time to take a peek, see if anything important is still on it, and send it to HDD heaven.

It isn't even big enough to install 19.3 Cinnamon on it :lol:
wonder if the warranty is still valid :mrgreen:

Re: Woke from a nap, my water bottle was really hot

Is a 'bottle of water' the new "hip" way of referring to your laptop? :wink: ha ha ha, our local water supply comes from a lake, and the taste is absolutely horrible. we will NOT drink it, nor use it for ice. We buy packaged ice and bottled water for drinking :lol: it just so happens, that the exha...

So I take it this is still happening now? If yes, go the "processes" tab and sort by CPU activity by clicking on that column.

Re: First impressions of Ubuntu Touch

Oneplus 3 and 3T are supported, though the version of the OS that runs on them is not as mature as the one for the Oneplus One: https://devices.ubuntu-touch.io/ as I am not familiar at all with OnePlus, I just assumed that the 'One' is much older than the '3-T' ?? when looking for cellphones, I alw...

Re: They want consumers. What if you aren't?

the trend to use intrusive loud, distracting, distasteful, and otherwise obnoxious ads, ads that block my ability to view a website, and ads that contain malware have forced me to block all ads. I tried whitelisting sites that didn't have obnoxious but that did not work well and was more hassle tha...

I must be a 'good consumer', if you watch my Email Inbox....

I have to "Unsubscribe" from about every 5th or 10th email that I see daily, and I mark it SPAM at the same time.

Re: Safe use of Synaptic to remove all packages in status

Re: First impressions of Ubuntu Touch

I looked on Swappa.com com and the oldest OnePlus that I could find was a 3-T for $80 bux.

not too bad for a new toy to play with, I might do that just to experiment around with it, not actually get a simcard for it.

Re: File transfer hangs for a long time before finishing

I'm of the opinion, that the Progress Bar is not an Exact Science as to how long it is going to take to perform the job. Initially, the File Managers have to run thru the list of jobs, collect names, locations, and then start the actual copy process. Once the actual copy process itself has started, ...
