Re: Oh! Oh! I got one for you

Now this is an interesting topic First of all I prefer the Peer Gynt Suites myself over all of these, bugs bunny brain washed me :lol: and the hall of the mountain king has been done quite a few times, I would see Hendrix playing that one instead of Rick Wakeman. Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" would ...

Re: Recommend Wireless card for ancient P4 ???

wow sounds like a great business opportunity for an honest tech repair person if the competition don't hunt him down for taking all the customers away. I would just call it Honest Computer Repairs, sounds like they never seen that before and would probably jump to it. Ok in that case see if it's a p...

Re: Recommend Wireless card for ancient P4 ???

wow that suckers old I would suggest finding a computer graveyard as I call them and see if you can rip one out of an old motherboard somewhere. One of my old jobs we had a computer graveyard where we stored all the outdated computers at up in the attic and used to picking them apart for parts as ne...

Re: HP users beware: Laptops revealed to have built-in keylogger

Just another reason to avoid HP I stopped buying them when I got one with a dynamic partition, I just returned it instead of turning it into basic, and the wife's HP kept borking because of the battery, we gave that one away. Although cheap systems it seems there always another price to be paid, I j...

Re: Adventures in Manjaro...

arrgghhh edit it opens gimp to clip, that's what I'm trying to get away from, no gimp for cropping and/or resizing but I'll check out that viewer anyhow. Alot of times I need a quick resize or crop of an image and just hate waiting for gimpers to load to do it. Just looking for a lightweight editor/...

Re: Adventures in Manjaro...

Gimp still takes long for me to load :shock: I have so much loaded into it though I think it takes over 2 gigs just to load the sucker (last time I checked), so no matter what system I use it'll take long, but yup it is a bit quicker still, I'm dreading the day vs 10 comes out and all those plugins ...

Re: Adventures in Manjaro...

So it's only been one year that Arch changed something and made it unstable. Or, more unstable than usual. Hmmm isn't that about the time systemd was introduced to arch? Or around that time? Got to say I admire your attempts and understand why you would throw in the towel, I would of long ago so my...

Re: Privacy being subverted by new laws

I watch the snowden movie just out of curiostiy, changed my mind on a lot of things I really didn't care about before. I remember one line, "they use terroism as an excuse to do it". Although the threat is real to some degree they abuse it to an extreme extent to do whatever they want. Follow what w...

Re: Adventures in Manjaro...

ya it all depends who your dealing with over there, some are nicer then others, others think you should know how to build a linux system from scratch. For nvidia I just use bumblebee, some folks like the nvidia drivers instead but bumblebee works fine for my use. I used nvidia drivers on mint but ha...

Re: Thank God im an IDIOT that protects himself

we've all probably been there a few times. once I wiped out my back up external including all the files. I also did what you did a few times and had to do reinstalls, now when I am not using an arch base rolling release or on my family computers I just do clean installs, even if it's an upgrade from...

Re: Adventures in Manjaro...

Yeah rolling can make a lot of sense in certain use-cases such as yours. Honestly I'm a bit of a hound for new software myself 'just because' so I always upgrade as soon as a new Mint release is available. Rolling does have its appeal but honestly given my experience I would probably just go back t...

I still have mint but rarely ever use it anymore, my family does to make it easier on me for issues though. This is my workstation and I need the newer upgrades for a lot of software I use and kernels and since it takes me days to reinstall a rolling release just makes sense to me and why I use it, ...
