have started getting full-screen 30s ads on my Samsung A5.
Not that I'm getting any ads on my phone (some games have ads, but nothing outside of that) but how do you get rid of them? I thought you were going to give instructions.

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon new features video

I ran 19.2 for a few days but found Cinnamon would easily lock up on me, which then basically meant I would have to forcibly reboot my computer. I'm back on 19.1 now, where everything is back to normal.

This is the very first time I've had to revert to a previous release.

Re: And now for something completely different!

I'm too young to remember such conversations myself at the time, though of course I'm also certain those conversations have been going on for a very long time. For example, look at the Luddite movements of the late 1700s and early 1800s. Personally, I'm much more worried about the cumulative effects...

I think we should worry more about the drop-bears at this stage, especially those in South Australia, swinging from the rafters in Adelaide.
I lose sleep every night worrying about that.

Re: Confession: I bought a MacBook Pro 2019. I just returned it.

Sadly I still depend on dual booting Windows for two pieces of software for now. Office for weird custom Word forms I often need to edit. A VST software for my keyboard. Go do five Hail RMSs and five Our Kernel Dev Teams, and think about what you've done. In the name of the GPL, the Free Software F...

Re: Security Issues that are interesting

It's really a sad time in our technology history that we are going to start having to authenticate and authorize cables themselves, in addition to devices we use them to connect to our hardware. It's kind of getting to the point where I almost think we'd be better off not being dependent upon any co...

There's a PDF export button in the toolbar.

Re: Confession: I bought a MacBook Pro 2019. I just returned it.

From what I can see, new MacBook Pros are pretty nerfed, hardware-wise. Their screens and touch pads are nice, but Apple has stripped of so much that is pretty crazy. For the money, you'd be better off with either a Purism or a System76 unit. Crossover by Codeweavers should let you run me versions o...

Linux ate all the cheese in my house. Not that there was a lot, mind you, but I had to go to the store and buy another bag of shredded mozzarella because of it. :o

Re: Will Linux Mint eventually support Arm?

Vis a vis Linux Mint and the server environment... I would prefer to use Debian as a server OS because of its reputation for being extremely stable. I've used it on two different servers, the second of which replaced the first of which because I wanted and had free access to better hardware, and the...

I suppose I was using "GPL'd" a bit more broadly than translated to what I wrote. I meant any legitimate libre license (GPL, Apache, etc.) ZFS is licensed under the CDDL, which is considered a libre license, just one incompatible with the GPL by some: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.en.ht...

If it's not GPL'd, I've no interest in it. That's interesting. So I guess you're also not using Wayland, the various x11 libraries, xauth, xserver, xfonts, etc., neither OpenSSL or LibreSSL, sudo, zlib, neither wget or curl, ncurses, Python, Lua, Ruby, Vim, Neovim, bind9, file, fontconfig, libpcre,...
