Re: How do I mess with someone on my wireless network?

Many (most?) street people have mental illnesses and are not capable of living the way we might want them to. I usually introduce myself, shake their hand, chat with them for a few minutes, then give them a few bucks and move on. I also have the addresses and phone numbers of all the shelters and s...

Re: How do I mess with someone on my wireless network?

You won't like this: or he'll punch you and you'll get sympathy from your family, who'll then see him for what he is... win win ;) I'm one of the few that has been in this situation more then a few times and dealt with it, my own harsh way by showing them the door. But it's not easy. I love your lo...

Re: How do I mess with someone on my wireless network?

To be honest if it was me and the freeloader refused to move I would cut off the internet and tell him to go get a job to pay for his own, I would also give a moving date to urge him along and if it goes past this I would have a discussion how it's cruel to use a family member, if that did not work,...

If possible only allow 3 sites he can access 1: job bank site 2: apartment rentals 3: freeloaders and how to deal with them Although I agree with richy there about love sometimes you have to deal a hard hand to move someone's butt.

Re: Why upgrade instead of clean install?

I prefer clean installs also, but mine usually takes 2 days or more to get it back to normal, saving the home folder plus other stuff and putting it back in usually takes 10 to 16 hours with an external for me, never mind the other stuff. In this case I opt for a rolling release for myself, it is ju...

Re: Is Linux the Little Engine That Couldn't?

so now your android device will work, DONE
the VR is an idea you think would work, even though your comparing a phone to a desktop.
throwing out ideas is like someone running out of gas then saying, "know what would be a great idea? some gas, go get it for me".
