Re: Slowing to a crawl

Is there anything I can do? To get 12GB of RAM, you must have installed mismatched DIMMs. Try 8GB. Also, consider upgrading your HDD to a SSD. While you mention some other OS, you don't tell us if it also has issues or not, nor do you tell us anything about your system that can be used to make bett...

Setting a password will not prevent anyone from accessing the files on the device. If it contains information that is so important, don't take it out of your home.

Some people like to set their swappiness to 5 for SSD drives.
Some who are misguided might do it for SSDs, but the majority do it because they have enough RAM.

Re: Grammar Pet Peeve

However it is not as ugly as "off of" instead of "from". Or 'off on', as in 'they signed off on the contract.' In both examples of torturous language mangling, 'off' is sufficient. Of course, the blame for the mangling lies fully with the United States. It has no official language and, until recent...

That's an unsupported kernel. Don't count on getting the issue resolved without a stock kernel running. When you install those kernels, you're expected to know enough to sort out any issues yourself. I know that doesn't sound very friendly or welcoming, but it is a fact.
