Re: Social Media is Draining You

Social media helped me reconnect with relatives and friends all scattered around the globe. It's cool to know they became successful as some of them are now celebrities or have kids who are now celebrities, business owners, elected officials, doctors, religious leaders, and multi-awardees on their f...

Re: Intel's Clear OS

Is it this one? https://clearlinux.org/
I tried it but it fails to boot up. All I get is boot failure messages.
This is the first time I tried a Linux distro that fails to boot up.

Poll on favorite Linux distro

I think this poll represents a more accurate indication of distro popularity right now (unlike Distrowatch):

Re: Broken HDD and SSD from installing new OS?

Did you happen to install Mint 19.1 Cinnamon? The most recent update this week destroyed the hard drive on my laptop. It was preceded by error warnings and a system crash. At first, I thought it was just an untimely normal death for the HDD. So I bought a new one. Upon reinstall on a new hard drive,...

Re: Rendering issues on nearly vanilla install

I'm having this exact same problem last night after a fresh install of Mint 19.3 Cinnamon. So, the xorg-server-hwe 18.04 is the culprit? Does excluding that from the list of updates prevent the issue?

EDIT: The fresh install I had was immediately followed by the "mandatory" update.

Re: Year of the Linux Desktop?

For me the year, or rather the years of the Linux desktop started in 2016 when I tried Linux for the first time. :wink:

I should thank M$ for trying to force me to upgrade to Win10 from my Win7 machine, because that was what pushed me to try looking for an alternative.

Re: U.S. Navy Patents Compact Fusion Reactor

... That doesn't really answer my question. I get that putting something into a system can get you energy out of that system. I'm just talking about being able to get way more energy out than what you put in. Perhaps it's how the article describes it, but it just sounds strange. It's nuclear chain ...

Tricia is a definitely a better one, unlike Trina which could easily become Tina (19.2) with just a simple typo.

Re: A sudden shutdown despite battery didn't lost its charge

What is the room temperature where you use your laptop for gaming? There are certain laptops with hardware auto-shut-off that kicks in when certain components overheats. Is there any sign of dusts accumulating inside your laptop? That would cause an overheat easily.
