Re: NFL Fantasy Football

More likely as additions (UCF along with USF) to the Big12. The Big12 has been considering adding a couple of teams on and off for several years now to bring their numbers up to 12 in football. I'm sure they would like to have a shot at the Florida market. What I was really trying to get at is, do ...

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

We're still upset over the whole Power 5/ Group of 5 thing. UCF declared themselves national champions and the governor agreed. The state might even issue a National Champion license tag for UCF! I'm not familiar with that conference. From what you saw happen over the past few years do you think UC...

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

I had season tickets to the Tampa Bay Bucs first season. Maybe went to half the games. Not very interested in pro football these days, but do support my school's team, USF, who play in the same stadium as the Bucs. I did enjoy the Superbowl though. Glad the Eagles won as I was raised about 80 miles...

Re: Grub Customizer: why you shouldn't use it

I removed it when I upgraded to Mint 8.3 and boot time improved significantly.

I was using it because I normally have 2 or 3 distributions installed on this computer and it was an easy way to make it boot to a specific one. Though It's simple enough to edit Grub to do that.

(For you economists): Without Net Neutrality we could call it "trickle-down internet." We'll get what's left over after the big players take their share.

Re: Oh, you know computers

I don't mind helping people with their computers - if they are using Linux or want to try Linux. As far as helping them with WIndows, I say I don't know anything about that OS! Actually, the last Windows I used was XP.

Re: Non-Windows laptops?

I have an Acer c720 with Mint 17.3 that has the Chrome keyboard and mouse firmware so both work great. Replaced the 16GB SSD with a 128GB SSD in that one. Also have a Samsung Chromebook 3 running Gallium 2.1. This entire distro is made for Chromebooks with the special keyboard and mouse firmware. N...

Another vote for Audacious. I also use it to convert my old music CDs to Ogg format (it supports many formats).

Re: Ubuntu 17.10 Vs Mint

I agree with Pjotr. The October releases of the different Ubuntu versions are test beds for the April releases. In this case, the April 2018 releases will have long term support and will contain some interesting Ubuntus. Ubuntu Budgie will have a lot of new improvements and Lubuntu will be using LXQ...

Re: Asus mini laptop

The eeepc 900 and 1000 were a later release with slightly more oomph. But no.matter what they sucked due due to their out of order execution atom processor. Oh, no doubt they are obsolete compared to modern computers. Nevertheless, It's fun to try to make old equipment work successfully with Linux....

Re: Asus mini laptop

I have an eeepc 900 with a 4GB ssd which I still use occasionally. It came with 512MB of ram. I've found that it runs very well with Puppy Linux. I increased the ram to 1GB and now run Peppermint OS and Lubuntu successfully. It's best to run those from an SDHC card or USB memory stick. I install tho...

Re: Lightweight Linux distros

I just put BunsenLabs Linux on a 10 year old low-spec. Compaq Presario, and it really flies. BL is a successor to CrunchBang and uses Debian with Openbox. It's easier to use than CrunchBang was and has a lot of extras added to OB.
