Re: Good reasons to always use ad-blockers

It's a shame one cannot get an adblocker for television as I hate the damn things. Commercials is just part of OTA TV and I don't mind them at all because when they come on I get up and use the restroom or get a refill of whatever I am enjoying while watching the TV show. I've never paid for TV ser...

Re: Social Media is Draining You

Good for you. To many people seem to live for social media websites. I've never had a Facebook account or any other social media account other than computer forums and amateur radio forums. I guess one could say that computer forums and amateur radio forums are social media websites and I guess they...

Re: Corona virus (COVID-19)

The Wife and I just got back from the store and man oh man empty shelves and many many shoppers. The check out line was 2 hours long so while I waited in line the Wife ran around and got what was available and brought it to the shopping cart. Yes the shelves are empty although we managed to find som...

Re: Corona virus (COVID-19)

Went to several different stores here in Oklahoma City and toilet paper is not available hopefully this will change fortunately our house has a good sup...

I will stick with the old fashion way of lighting candles by using an inexpensive lighter wand.
You have no sense of adventure :)

Re: good distro I can use for WINE instead of Mint ?

This old computer box (pentium4, integrated ATI Xpress, 2004 wifi card, etc., less than 1gb RAM) runs Mint Xfce just fine so I figure the lightweight Bodhi distro will do well. Would I encounter problems with installing WINE on a Bodhi distro? Do y'all think I should try a different distro for this...

Re: Ubuntu Cinnamon?

I'll just stay with good old Ubuntu 18.04 LTS because unlike some users I like Gnome and have no complaints with it. Linux Mint Cinnamon and Linux Mint Xfce and LMDE 3 are OK Linux Distros however I just like and prefer Ubuntu 18.04 LTS over Linux Mint. The only Linux Mint version I use is LMDE 3. L...

Re: RING Security Doorbell

If you want video security get a system that's closed circuit and does not connect to the internet. Absolutely. My security system and surveillance cameras are hardwired although a bit more effort involved in the original installation of the system however I have no worries about anyone hacking int...

Re: That's it, I'm done. Need advice.

I'd suggest the Dell Optiplex series desktops. I've got several Dell Optiplex 380 series from 2010 core 2 duo e7500 processors and 4.0 GB DDR3 ram and Intel integrated graphics adapters and mechanical hard drives. These desktops are still running strong and were built to last and work well with any ...

Re: Chili dogs-comfort food for the soul

I love hot dogs and always cook them on the charcoal grill.

A hot dog with mustard / chili / onions wrapped up in a piece of rye bread is the best imo. :D

Re: Monitor repair questions

As for computers, the worst thing was getting rid of punched cards for programming. What do you write your shopping list on now? Use Quick Memo on your smartphone for your shopping list.
