Re: Persuasive 2019-04-26

Personally I think it shows a lot of sense and maturity, given what Pickle is capable of, that she wants somebody alongside who is similarly dangerous but considerably more experienced in NOT blowing the world up.

Have to disagree with the Starbucks comment, since it's not in Seattle.

As of the end of last year, Starbucks had 335 company stores plus 653 licensed (franchised?) stores in Great Britain.

Dogwood, by the way, is a horrible choice for firewood. It burns just fine... but it smells like you're burning feces.

I just have a link to the forum in my bookmarks. And a link to the comic elsewhere in my bookmarks. And links to a few specific pages in another spot.

So, confirmation that Castel wears polkadot boy shorts as underwear, and not the thong her sister wore at the same age because of her tail. Another web comic I read explicitly says sprouting a tail with granny panties on causes a "tail Wedgie" that varies from extremely uncomfortable to excruciatin...

Re: Calling all Linux users...

I once found instructions on how to install Access2007 with PlayOnLinux, and at least some basic stuff worked but I didn't try anything complicated. I do remember it required some special settings such that Word and Excel (which install pretty easily and are apparently fully functional) supposedly w...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Not an email scam, but I'm tempted to call the local cable company and tell them that if they stop sending me three solicitations a week, they'll save so much money that they can GIVE me high-speed internet - for free - and still be ahead.

Get me a distro/emulator/whatever that will run all my Windows software seamlessly, and i'd probably switch.

Re: Calling all Linux users...

Yeah, I looked at OwnCloud, and its server wants to own a copy of the data that nothing else is allowed to touch. Which means that in a typical home installation, that computer has to store two "live" copies of the data and synchronize with itself. Never made sense to me. OwnCloud also has the issue...

Re: Calling all Linux users...

I don't remember what distribution I used the first time I got into Linux. It didn't have a GUI. I used that box as a router and print server for our two Windows boxes. This was back in the days before wifi... Now, I have Linux Mint (Cinnamon) version 18.1 on my desktop, and Debian with xfce running...

Re: Ubuntu Studio 18.04

Typically with a "live" installation you actually can install and update anything you want... but it goes away when you shut down, because it doesn't actually change the installation on the media.

(So the installations that require a reboot - which is pretty rare with Linux - don't work.)

I’m going to keep it because its still $1000 of Tech and if nothing else I might be able to salvage bits of it for later machines or something.
This laptop came with 8G RAM and a 120G SSD. And free slots in the case. So I gutted the old one. This one now has 12G RAM and two SSDs, 120G and 250G.
