Problems with WiFi dropping out - just remarking, not asking for help

I bought a new LTE wireless router a few weeks ago. at first, I thought it was the Cat's Meow as it was steadily giving us downloads in the 10-30Mbps range, even with a very 'poor' signal strength.... represented as '1' bar on the idiot lights. During my intial testing, I was using my Desktop PC on ...

Re: A Very Strange Dream...

my dreams seem to be triggered by material in the books that I have been reading. really deep detective stories, I had to back off of, as they reminded me of an ex-son-in-law who ripped me off big time, and I prosecuted him and sent him to prison..... weird dreams that were really screwed up while r...

Does it show up in the menu?

if so, right click > Uninstall
It's not so simple.

Re: Cinnamon is too gluttonous

I have a new, very fast computer, and decent ISP link. some websites just are too slow to display stuff. I only use the Cinnamon desktop, and have for the last 3 versions of Linux Mint. it runs very well, even on a 15 year old Acer 5253 with only 2gB RAM and 19.3 Cinnamon.. That Acer 5253 laptop, cr...

Re: How is a website detecting my previous visits with....

I think all of this is way over reacting. I have tried the alternate search engines, and I go back to Google as default, every time. my personal info is already on the web... what I can do, is restrict tracking, and I am using NoTrace to help with that. I also have the cookies disappear when the web...

Re: How is a website detecting my previous visits with....

I guess you've forgotten that, by default , Google isn't even included as an available search engine. Has to be added manually by the user. THIS IS NOT CORRECT. As a matter of fact Google IS the standard search engine when installing FF! You need to manually delete it! Use startpage, duckduckgo or ...

Re: System destroyed by UPS app! Need help asap!

Thank you all for replying. @trytip: If Timeshift had any sound logic to it I would've used it, but since it did some stupid things in the past almost leaving me with zero free space I have uninstalled it long ago so it is not an option. Not that it would matter for the issue at hand but in my over...

Re: Living in the Rural Outback and LTE modems

I am moving to a rural location in the near future and the only internet access will be using an AT&T compatible LTE modem. My nephew says he plays online games no problem. I didn't ask which games, I'm thinking Overwatch style. I know that I won't be buying any software online, hard copies only. Y...
