wow, alexa9. i 100% identify with everything you just said. you summarized our life experiences as accurately as it was succinct! you're pretty cool. we are probably both about the same age, but i also strongly identify with your perspective and how you were introduced/de-introduced to online elements

Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

It's funny that you admit to not reading the article, and then respond only to the headline, using information you imagine is contained in the story. This is typical of [insert whatever generation you belong to]. So you don't bring much to the conversation worth responding to. But I will offer two c...

Automatic network connection gradually slower (over time) to connect after restart (Qualcomm Atheros AR8151)

Hello. How the hell are you guys? I have a nuanced issue that requires a bit of explanation on my part. Why does my ethernet connection take so long to connect after booting into Mint? I assume the ethernet port on my PC is the Qualcomm Atheros AR8151 listed in lspci below. I've noticed on clean ins...

nginx server: best OS?

Hello, I'm installing nginx but I've never used it before. I'll be running Wordpress on it. Have you guys ever used nginx? I'm wondering what's the best operating system for nginx? I'm looking at CentOS 6 or 7, but I don't know what the differences are in terms of using nginx. There's actually not t...

Re: WHITE RABBIT: And when it comes to that fantastic bit where the rabbit bites its own head off

Dude that's hilarious. Maybe they saw it coming, and played Louie Louie just for you. I played around Nashville in 2010 and met a few bands who did White Rabbit. I've seen a lot of people attempt that song, but nobody hits it like grace! Everybody knows it, you weren't alone. Hey, also lusting after...

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. After reading various ToS I've decided to host a custom domain with Protonmail.

I think I'm done with Gmail. Maybe I'm even ready to pay for email?

Hi folks, I was thinking about email today and that maybe it's time to let go of Gmail. What if there was a Google agent who stood by your mailbox on the sidewalk, and offered to read your mail for you, and send copies of it back to Google? I'd most certainly tell that guy where to go. Just because ...

Re: Dual boot without GRUB by selecting drive from the boot menu

So I just installed LMDE 2 and it offered me the option not to install grub; however, the installation videos and tutorials recommended I leave the option checked to install grub, and in the installation window it advised me grub loads the linux kernel. So I left it checked. And now I see the ugly o...

Re: Dual boot without GRUB by selecting drive from the boot menu

Another thing, you will have to disable os-prober, otherwise next time grub gets updated it will find your windows and propose a menu entry for it (and show the grub menu instead of directly booting linux). Simplest thing is to make the script not executable : sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober...

Thanks Mattybaby

I thought it would be something that easy. That means there's a MBR on both drives, right?

Re: Without a Driver Manager, does LMDE "use" my Nvidia graphics card?

I do not need the latest driver, but the instructions in Debian's Nvidia section seem to give me an even newer driver than what's available to Mint... not that it matters to me, since I only want a driver, with no requirement other than the fact I'll be using Nvidia drivers after the process. I'm on...
