Re: Network Manager not using VPN

Hi AZgl1500, I just created a lengthy reply to your Private Message (PM)... - When you updated the "openVPN" software, did you follow the instructions for Linux Mint 18.x?

Re: A new laptop for the Spouse-Unit

Well, not only wives but my cousin is also complaining about Linux complexities. He's been using Linux for almost a year now. I think it's just that some people take to Linux like a duck to water (I certainly did, I made the jump happily, not because someone pushed me) and others... don't. I don't ...

Re: Kids can't use computers

When you hit 25 or 30, it starts to decline and you tend to judge others on your experience rather than setting a new lens for the view. But when you're younger than 25 or 30, you tend to judge others on your in experience. :P Learning goes away real quick after 30s. I don't know about that. I've k...

Re: Kids can't use computers

Learning capabilities in children are far more than elders. When you hit 25 or 30, it starts to decline and you tend to judge others on your experience rather than setting a new lens for the view. This is true. Learning goes away real quick after 30s. Problem is, they are using machines to do their...

He's operating the freaking iPad himself, he is 4 only. he knows how to get the apps, where to get them and how to use them. He'd only give iPad away to me or someone elder to put ...

Re: VPN Kill Switch issues Solved

When you use a VPN there's a risk that the VPN will disconnect, theoretically leaving your app still connected to wherever, but now with your details visible.. A good VPN kill switch will watch for that and close those apps in that case, leaving you safe. So after looking and experimenting all day,...

Need to know what VPN providers each of you use, or are trying to use??? "vpnbook" is a free VPN provider and is usually very reliable, exce...

Re: My mom is 70 and is thinking about going with Linux Mint. She's on the fence. What should I tell her to convince her

The recent, highly publicized (at least in the UK) ransomware infections are resulting in a lot more people considering switching to Linux, which can only be a good thing. It may be what encouraged her to ask. The more this sort of thing appears in the headlines, the more people will discover the b...
