Back... again

Post by lsemmens » Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:29 am

After a few years away from LInux and experiencing the dreaded BSOD on several of my Windoze 10 machines, I figured that it might be time to re-visit Linux Mint. In the past, I had troubles in various 'nix's with multiple monitors when using a nVidia card which were not easily resolved. My attitude has always been my time is more important than my computer, if I have a problem that I can't resolve fairly quickly and I can't live without the problematic device, it's time to find something that does work.

A re-format and re-load is often quicker than fixing a problem if I know that will work. Yeah! I know, I don't learn anything that way but I remain far more productive as a result.
So far this build of Mint seems to have resolved the video issue, So I am cautiously optimistic.

Anyway, this is about Hi! I'm back. Hopefully, for a Loooong time!


As an aside, I find it a little sexist that there is a "hello Ladies" thread, pinned without a similar "hello blokes" thread also pinned....... Seriously, It is not an issue, I'm a bloke, and it's good to see a good representation of the "fairer" sex here. [WaveySmiley] :D
