The font that came with Mint 19 Cinnamon is OK if they're increased 2 points larger!

Re: Name that Movie

Yep Rufus T. Firefly (Graucho Marx) in Duck Soup. Some more funny banter in the movie: Rufus T. Firefly: Not that I care, but where is your husband? Mrs. Teasdale: Why, he's dead. Rufus T. Firefly: I bet he's just using that as an excuse. Mrs. Teasdale: I was with him to the very end. Rufus T. Firef...

For Linux I use Rainlendar free version. It has many different skins and formats. Only the paid version allows syncing between computers.

Re: KPatience

Is it better than AisleRiot? I'm kind of hooked on Freecell.

I've read that doctors have used Freecell as an indicator of how well old folk's (like me) brain cells are still working. I keep hoping that if I play it enough some reversal will take place. :)

Re: What are my options here.

@ slipstick:
I do about the same thing. I don't move all my personal files in my old /home partition to the new /home (such as my Calibre library), but just mount that partition when I need to access it.

Re: Another email topic

I've also written about this before :) I've been with FastMail for a long while and use them for others as well. I also use Fastmail. After a lot of research, it was the most recommended paid service. At only $30 US a year (without hosting), it is well worth it. It's hosted out of Australia. Any qu...

Re: Observations on life

In the Tampa Bay beaches of Florida where I live, It's sometimes called "Ontario South" during the winter. That's alright though, if one can cope with the traffic, those Canadian visitors help keep our taxes low. I agree with Damien. Boston is the worst driving experience I've ever had the displeasu...

Re: Any negative ramifications for using multiple-Google-account sign-in setup?

If you use different name variations (initials, nickname, etc) how would they know they are all the same person and not just different people in the household with the same IP address? They can recognise the device because of browser fingerprinting. They wouldn't know if you were sharing a computer...

Re: Cashless Society is getting closer

Someone mentioned using checks. That's probably the unsafest form of payment there is. A check has all your bank information, name and address, your signature and usually your phone number. Every once in a while i get behind someone in a grocery store taking their good old time to write out a check.

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

The never ending ring of tinnitus. There's OTC stuff you can take to help with that. Even Wally World has some in their HBA section. I haven't found anything but that homeopathic stuff that never works. I hear wind chimes in one ear and ocean waves in the other. At times I swear I can pick up a rad...

Very nice article on Mint: https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/lin ... tools.html
Very good, especially coming from Dedoimedo, who can be very critical of any small flaws he comes upon.
