Re: Firefox vers. 67 ?

Re: Tesla and Autopilot crashes...

I really don't know how self driving autos work but what happens when a bug splats on the window of where the auto looks out for self driving, does it hit the brakes and then you are a bug splat on the inside.

Re: Tesla and Autopilot crashes...

I am certain many have been driving in cold weather as a front blows in and suddenly you drive into warm air ahead of the front and all windows fog up to where you can't see anything going 70+ miles an hour. This is how I feel with self driving autos.

Re: TRIM and my SSD

I have been using this for a bit and I really don't remember the default location, hopefully someone will jump in and answer that for you. I changed it to the way I have it because it was easier for me to check up on it from time to time. Every so often I clean out older reports leaving the last one...

Re: TRIM and my SSD

That is the contents of fstrim located in /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim.
It is in cron.weekly because I want it to run weekly. If one wanted it to run daily, hourly or monthly then that file needs to be in the corresponding folder.

Re: TRIM and my SSD

You can set fstrim to have a report on your desktop as such. #!/bin/sh LOG=/home/mark/Desktop/trim.log echo "*** $(date -R) ***" >> $LOG fstrim -v / >> $LOG fstrim -v /home >> $LOG I have root and home on the ssd and Trimmed weekly.

Re: Running LOTRO??

Does ANYONE know of a way to run Lord of the Rings Online on LM??

Just looking for ideas before jumping in. Thank you, Bobby ...

So you wait until the last second to do your taxes and do a system change and call it "Mint insanity"? When you point your finger at Mint remember that three fingers are pointing back at you.

Re: Spring clean your computer

I am fortunate to have an air compressor in the garage to use when blowing out the PC. Keep in mind to find a way to hold the fan blades from spinning 100k rpms as they are not designed to run that fast. I cleaned a neighbors computer once and didn't wear a face mask, I won't do that again. There wa...

My step-dad accidentally bumped his laptop and it fell.
I don't see where anyone suggested that if the machine was running when it fell there is a chance it may have trashed the drive.
