May 25: Towelday

In remembrance of Douglas Adams: On May 25th, put your towel outside. Hanging from a flagpole, f.i.
At the moment it is night here in the Netherlands, so I will wait a few hours before I put it out. Picture will be posted.

A true hitchhiker always knows where his towel is !

I invite our native English speakers to start a new English word: "hamstering". Now wouldn't that be a nice addition to the English dictionaries? :lol:
YES! That would be great.

Re: TOMTOM updaten met Linux Mint

Moem, gebruik je de Nuvi's ook op de motor ? Nee. Op de motor gebruik ik wel eens mijn smartfoon in zo'n armband om mijn pols. Maar meestal heel ouderwets de wegwijzers en borden, plus mijn richtingsgevoel. 8) Ik ontbeer richtingsgevoel, dus is het altijd fijn om op de JUISTE plaats van bestemming ...

Re: TOMTOM updaten met Linux Mint

Bij www.softwarebilliger.de heb ik Win7 64b pro licenties aangeschaft. Kosten ong. € 10. Heel goed te doen dus.

Dit als alternatief voor de Win7 testversie.

Re: TOMTOM updaten met Linux Mint

Dank je wel, Pjotr :!:

Moem, gebruik je de Nuvi's ook op de motor ? De TomTom VIA125 doet het al jaren. Krijgt een plastic zakje over z'n koppie als het erg hard regent. Meestal is het echter niet nodig.

Re: TOMTOM updaten met Linux Mint

Ik heb een separate windows7 partitie voor de TomTom. Behoorlijk idioot, maar ja, ik wist niks beters ?? Als er een betere oplossing is, Pjotr, mag je mij ook een PM'tje sturen :wink: TomToms gebruiken Linux als embedded OS. Maar TomTom is te beroerd om voor Linux ondersteuning te zorgen. Of gewoon ...

Re: LM 19.3 Trina, really? (not anymore, it's Tricia now)

Seems sorted now. But is Tricia a her, him, or they? Seems appropriate to ask, perhaps more difficult to answer though. Nope, not difficult at all. Familiarize yourself with the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. A must for geeks, strongly recommended for non-geeks. Tricia McMillan is very female :) ...

I don't know if this thread can claim the credits for the change but LM 19.3 has been renamed to Tricia now!

See: http://packages.linuxmint.com/
Yippie ! Happy like a child.

Ursa Minor - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Ursa_Minor Also remember there are 5 books in the Hitch Hiker's trilogy. There is a 6th one written by someone else. I got a 1/4 way through it and gave up. It just wasn't Douglas Adams. IMO, Eoin Colfer did a pretty good job on the 6th book....
