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...

Re: After using Facebook for 10 years I finally deleted my account

I wish I could delete my account. Most of my family and friends are so ingrained in the system, they will never leave. I too stopped posting and only communicate with them using messenger, SMS and voice calls. I got sick of "friends" sending requests/invitations to thing that were obviously fake, o...

Next week schools here where I live are out for spring break. We just got a robo phone call, they're giving the kids the following week off as well because of this virus. To me, this is just a big overreaction to a virus that's no more deadly than the flu. our Oklahoma governor extended all School ...

I invite our native English speakers to start a new English word: "hamstering".

That site looks unpleasant - appears to be a US only public records aggregator.

Interesting disclaimer if your browse there from outside the US.

Re: Living in the Rural Outback and LTE modems

For my country i would be classed as living in the rural outback (although 'outback' is perhaps too large a word for the small nation the uk geographically is!). Still on one of the worst connections i can get (unless perhaps living in the Outer Hebrides?) in the uk i can get a reliable 1.5MB down ...

Living in the Rural Outback and LTE modems

I probably should have started this thread a year ago, when I was using a Netgear LB-1120 LTE modem. These modems will work on nearly all wireless carriers, mine just happens to be registered with AT&T. Originally, mine came with a T-Mobile SimCard, but after discussions with the owners of OliveIP, ...

the amount of energy a laptop uses, is so miniscule, it would never be noticed around here. My electric bill swings like a yo-yo from the middle 100s to the upper 200s depending on the season. when the electric goes down, the Natural Gas bill goes up, but only by half. Hot water, and winter heat, an...
