Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

My idiot $3k System 76 laptop just died after having it less than a month (I have case submitted to System 76 but haven't heard back yet). ... <Seriously> After less than a month, the computer must still be under full warranty. So pass on your rant to the vendor. </Seriously> Seriously? Did you mis...

Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

I do believe it's not a month old but maybe around a year (typo caused by rant causing frustration) given the slating of System76 that has been going on far longer than that over the same laptop. Also the third post corroborates it not being a month old. Sorry you are being messed around by them La...

Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

If it's important , it's always backed up and backed up redundantly . No exceptions. I agree and did just that but for some reason I fail to fathom, the ones for Yahoo never "took" so I'm now using the old fashioned write it down technique. In other news :?: , I got an email from System 7...

Re: Computer Died (from Alert)

I use only the password manager in my browser so overriding is not a problem. The passwords are stored in an encrypted file and are visible only from within the browser and is difficult to impossible to access without physically having access to the computer. I had "fun" finding and access...

Re: Off this morning for first covid 19 vaccine jab

On the arm and the backside? Which shot (Pfizer, Moderna, etc.) was she getting. All I ever heard of was one shot in the arm followed by another one in the same place three weeks later. Were the backside shots something other than a Covid shot? The backside of her arm. She did get the Pfizer shot i...

Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

Something is seriously wrong when security is so tight, one can't get into their own accounts! I have to say I disagree on that point. To my mind it's an insecure system if any Tom Dick or Harry could phone up pretending to be Jeannie and get your password. I prefer to have my passwords entirely un...

...I'm sorry for seeming like I'm pouring salt on your wounds here, but: 1. Why are you still using Yahoo? That is a black-hat hacker's wet dream next to AOL... Yahoo was taken over by Verizon around three years ago. Verizon has tightened things up quite a bit and are no longer a "black-hat ha...

...Sorry to hear about the young 'puter. Thanks. I paid for a three year warranty but the clowns discontinued my computer three months after I bought it (mutter, mutter, mumble, mumble).

Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

That's tough luck about the computer, but all electronic gadgets die eventually. I'm surprised you didn't have a backup of the passwords. I thought you were keen on backups. Yeah, but on such an expensive computer after only 10-11 months? I still haven't heard back from System 76. I did have a back...

My idiot $3k System 76 laptop just died after having it less than a year (I have case submitted to System 76 but haven't heard back yet). I was using it this morning an it just shut down and now it just sits there and laughs at me. Adding insult to injury, I went through hell on Earth trying to reco...

Re: New to RAID

If you don't understand RAID don't do it and I can't think of any use cases for the desktop where it makes sense, on servers yes. I agree with what you said for most people. An exception would be people who must (or just really want to) keep their computers chugging along with no data loss should a...

Re: New to RAID

Ok, thank you for the info. What is RAID then normally used for? All my searching got me to the conclusion that it's for data redundancy and backups, but I guess I didn't quite catch the point. To expand on what has already been said, Redundancy and Backups are not the same thing. Also, not all RAI...

Re: What's the name of your pc?

My notebooks and laptop have really imaginative names: Notebook 1, Notebook 2; Notebook 3, and Laptop1 :roll: . The desktop machine that's been under construction for a while (I'm scratch building the case) is called Roisin Dearg (row-sheen dare-ug). It's Irish Gaelic for Red Rose (literally transla...
