You are correct, my sleep-cycle hasn't been great recently (as always), but I'm working on getting it back to normal. Thanks for the welcome, I'm glad to be here :)

Hello, ladies! I just spent this past weekend adding Linux Mint to my machines. It saved a "vintage" Macbook from the garbage! It was 8 years old before it stopped booting OS X, but this morning booted up Linux Mint like a champ! This has me very excited & I'm hoping some smaller distributions will save an old netbook and Gateway laptop too, but I haven't gotten that far along in my journey. I just hate seeing things go to waste. Since I basically have no idea what I'm doing (I haven't tried to write code in almost 2 decades and was totally under the point and click spell of Apple) I will probably need help at some point. I'm going to learn this thing inside and out, command line and all. I'll probably crash a few computers. It'll be a fun adventure!

They will. I have antiX running on a computer that had Win98 on it when I got it, and it runs surprisingly well. One of these days I need to make a list of lightweight Linux distributions, or find one on the internet and bookmark it, because this comes up all the time. Let's see, there is also LXLE, and Bodhi has a "Legacy" version for older computers. Lots of lightweight distros out there. Welcome to Linux Mint! Your attitude tells me you will soon be a great resource to others here.
