Re: Social Media is Draining You

A friend of mine said he had a good documentary he wanted to send me but he couldn't since I'm not on Farcebook. It's true what you say and it's a shame too because they become the central authority of what can and cannot be discussed and they are deleting things all the time now and banning people...

Re: Social Media is Draining You

I deleted my main Facebook account last year but maintained another anonymous account. Why? Because a lot of forums/discussion groups (such as this one) have shut down in favour of running a Facebook page which IMO is either laziness or cost cutting. I am a keen gardener and there is a local group w...

Re: Cannot access router in Firefox

Excuse the delay in responding. I do not know why, but I can now access my router (192.168.20.1) from my Firefox browser in Linux. As I access our DSL router through Firefox 76 daily, without experiencing any problems, I wonder what precisely the sentence "Cannot access router in Firefox" means in d...

Cannot access router in Firefox [Solved]

Greetings, I had occasion today to access my router (192.168.20.1) to check on it as our internet had dropped out. Much to my surprise, Firefox was unable to access it. As I had to power cycle the router, I did so but was still unable to access the router from Firefox. As part of troubleshooting thi...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

I installed folding@home today, and after getting everything set up I looked at what effect it was having on my hardware as I have it set the Folding Power slider set to Light (lowest setting). What I did notice was a sharp spike in CPU temperature. It went from it's normal ~30 degC to 72 when runni...

YEP - it's usually an syncing error, of some sort,
& any refresh, will then give "no updates" to be found.

Thanks for that - I figured as much, but put it out there as I hadn't seen it before.

When I fired up my machine this morning, there were updates to install which I did. However, when finished there was a message at the bottom of the Update Manager stating Could not install the security updates . I've never seen this message before, so I went through the History of updates and confir...

Re: which browser you prefer

Firefox has been my browser of choice for almost 15 years since I moved over from Netscape. To be honest, I've not used any other browser for any length of time besides Firefox. I do keep a copy of Google Chrome as alternate browser for those occasions when things don't quite work in Firefox (which ...

This is not true at all. I have been using Windows for many, many years and I have used Windows 10 for over 5 years.

Re: Timeshift query

By default, cron sends an email to the system administrator with the results of each scheduled process it runs. Since Timeshift uses cron to runs its hourly task, this can get spammy, hence the option to suppress the email for Timeshift's task. Ahh, that makes a lot of sense. I'll note that cron on...
