Ah! yes I liked that. Try this one. You may enjoy it. Not only is she a joy to watch, she has a beautiful voice, too! And the comedy is excellent.

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Classical music and jazz are my preferred musical genres BUT I was browsing through Youtube videos, as one does, and came across what I thought would be a normal recording of songs from Phantom of the Opera by a group I didn't know. So had a look and listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VgLKXD-B...

Re: No Option for burn to USB. Need Help.

As I stated earlier, I do not keep dvds around. I'd have to buy a pack just to install linux. I may go ahead and do that anyway. Otherwise, it seems I will have to take a course and do much reading just to install it. I will try again, but I am losing interest in Linux. One solution which hasn't ye...

Re: LinuxMint 19.1 and Windows 10 problem...

Thankfully the computer now has Linux Mint v19.1 Mate installed. After some more discussion with the owner, he told me he had several other computers with Windows 10 installed and asked me to remove the Windows 10 HD on the computer upon which I was to install Linux Mint, and provided a 240GB SSD on...

Re: LinuxMint 19.1 and Windows 10 problem...

Cannot tell you how to correct this issue without making massive changes to the Win10 installation, which could result in data loss and breaking Win10. Yes, that's my fear, too. The owner has given me another HDD. If I fit this I presume it will appear as dev/sdb. If I install Linux Mint on this pa...

Modifying mp4 video files...

I have several .mp4 files where the music is too loud. So much so, in fact, that it is impossible to clearly hear the singer. Is it possible to modify the video by reducing the loudness of the music and retaining the volume of the vocals. All I have learned by searching the internet is that the musi...

Ride-on mower battery...

I have a John Deere L100 ride-on mower. The battery is showing 12.65 volts, but it will not start the mower. The battery terminals are clean. If I use another battery showing a similar voltage the mower starts without any trouble. Running the mower, once it has started, is no problem. I can even tur...

Re: Free Software vs. Freedom Software

Very interesting discussion. As an native English speaker one of my greatest regrets is not learning another language.
