Re: Linux, should it carry a mental health warning!

I am a little concerned about the effect of not being able to master Linux, is having on people. It has to be the most unintuitive learning process, I have ever encountered. Absolutely not one thing I have tried to achieve has been any kind of pleasure, everything seems to be a 'learn by stressful ...

I'm still living High-On-The-Hog from my great great uncle in Nigeria that left me a billion dollars :wink: I know a guy that sent his whole pay check to get his inheritance. I suggested to him to send his next check to the same place to see if they will return his first check. He is a person that ...

Re: Unable to Migrate Thunderbird Mail from Windows to Mint

One way to get it done if all else fails is to create an imap account on google or the likes and send them to it from the windows machine. Once your done you can get on linux and retrieve them. It can be time consuming.

Re: Who can maintain Linux for my wife

Kind of a depressing topic, sure it must have been discussed before but can't find anything. Any thoughts on maintaining Linux Mint on my computers when I am gone for my wife? Course no one knows when that day will occur or if I will go first. We are both in our 70's and my wife isn't computer lite...

"Step 4. Find a large pot to put over the top of the entire facet to control the geyser of hot water that shoots high enough to hit the ceiling. (After 50 years the water stain is still there)"
