Re: Star Trek's Awful Month...

Sad times for Trekkies indeed. I absolutely love TOS. I love how chessy it is and the terrible special effects. But I grew up watching reruns of that and Lost in Space, so I love them both. As for more recent, obviously TnG is great. Picard is one of my favorites. I also really liked Voyager. Kate M...

Re: RING Security Doorbell

Not sure about the question from OP. But I will say that I have a RING doorbell. None of the cameras inside my house, just the doorbell. I like it for the most part, but it can be a bit moody. When I first installed it, I had to adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensor a couple of times because o...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

Upgraded from 19.2 yesterday. So far, so good. I did have some issues prior to the upgrade and getting the upgrade to even show up in Update Manager though. With 19.2 I was on 4.15.0-72 kernel and would get a kernel panic every time I booted up. So I would have to go into advanced settings and choos...

Re: I regret my installation of Linux Mint. How should I go about trying again?

Do you know what brand wireless adapter is in your laptop? I have two HP Pavilion laptops, both of which have Realtek wireless adapters. I found out when I was running Ubuntu that Realtek doesn't support drivers for Linux (at least Debian-based distros) and neither the Ubuntu nor the Mint loads I ha...

Re: 13 Most Promising New Linux Distributions to Look Forward in 2019

Can someone please explain why Mint is a beginner's distro???. Because is works? Sorry, but this moniker really bugs me. There is absolutely nothing I can't do on Mint that's blocked because it's for "beginners". Been using Linux since RedHat 6.2 at the turn of the century, and Mint is far and away...

Re: Brave browser...big big sigh... (also in the news: IceCat rocks;)

I loaded Brave when I was using Ubuntu. I honestly used FireFox more, but didn't really find any fault with Brave. I think I will load it back up on my new Mint install. I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, so what they are doing doesn't affect me. Sorry to be "that guy". But I am all about t...

Re: I said good bye to my dual boot system

I too started out with a dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu. Didn't take me long to reload Ubuntu to completely remove Windows from that laptop. Then just yesterday I loaded Mint and got rid of Ubuntu. Yeah, Mint may be based on Ubuntu, but I like the Mint DE better. So far, so good!

Re: I'm out of patience.

I have always been a Windows baby, ever since 3.1. I am in the military and our networks have always been mostly Windows-based, with a few systems running Linux (RedHat). Back in 2017 I became ever more interested in Linux. I attribute this mostly to the virtual labs I did while getting my M.S. in C...

Here's another one I think should be fairly easy for SciFi fans. That's the first hint. "So I said to the customer: 'Did you trying turning it off then turning it back on again?'" (Anyone who has spent time on a help desk will probably have used that line before. :lol: ) "Just what do you think you'...

Hattiesburg? My sister lives there. Well, she lives in Petal now actually. I was born and raised in McComb and spent the last couple of years of my childhood in Vicksburg. Went to New Orleans several times pre-Katrina. Only once since.

Re: Download speeds

I have Cox cable, because that is the only provider currently servicing my neighborhood. I have the 300Mb/s plan. I have been rather salty lately because I have used websites and apps which check download speeds and the best I have gotten on either has been around 30 - 37. So I wonder if, as mention...

Re: Observations on life

I live in the Southeastern Virginia area known as Hampton Roads, which consists of seven cities. Here, our roads have bridges, tunnels, pot holes and tolls. Our weather forecast? Maybe it will rain. Or maybe not.

Re: Linux antivirus story and question.

Cool story. I think there is a possibility that something happened. Remember, the 90's were the Wild West days of the Interwebs. Online chat rooms were a great forum for script kiddies and wannabe hackers to wreak havoc. Fun times!
