Re: Suggestions for cloud storage?

I've never tried it but i see a lot of people mention mega.nz but apparently it's heavy on ram usage for the temporary Encryption and Decryption. *Edit* Mega might be of no use as look at the ridiculous restrictions of the free 50gb account by this review , 1gb every 6 hours plus file size restricti...

Re: Canonical Pursuing A Hardware/Software Survey For Ubuntu Installations

Ubuntu will let upgraders ‘opt-in’ to data collection in 18.04

Canonical’s Dustin Kirkland

”Upgrading users would need to purposely “opt-in” to this behaviour, as that wasn’t explicitly asked in the past.

Re: And they all wonder why we insist on ad and tracking blockers

Google is a very poor company - they can't afford 32bit support and no supporter who tells them that they don't.
