Let Me Count The Ways

This thread is dedicated to my account and adventures involving the creation of a bootable USB memory stick as instructed by an unnamed person who occasionally visits the public library somewhere near Knoxville, TN. Let me say from the onset that this unnamed and unknown (to me) person is a genius. ...

Re: Apex Pro

I have had to return a few things, but never was told to send evidence of destruction. Thinking it over I had this idea similar to yours. I want to save the key caps. In an effort not to harm them I intend to put the keyboard into a vice and slice it in half using my circular saw set to a depth just...

Re: Vivaldi

I don't think human behavior can reverse the effects of the Ice Age cycle, but we can cut back on the excesses. The Amazon is of particular interest due to it's density. About 20% of the O 2 in the world comes from that region alone. The contribution by the trees replaced by concrete and steel is si...

Re: Debian Linux Mint

When you are using safety equipment that could save your life you have to put your faith and trust into it. There are no guarantees that any of it will work. I just read about a sky diver who's main and secondary chute failed on the way down. The story was unusual in that she survived with just a fe...

Re: Testy Tessa

It only took a month to come to the understanding I was able to depict above. I'm certain there are a few things I do not know yet, but I think I have the basic requirements down and documented. At some point in the not too distant future I'll be trying to create a USB stick with two installations o...

Re: Testy Tessa

I can't thank you enough for all the effort you are putting into this project of mine. Hopefully you too are getting at least a little bit of enlightenment out of it all. Rufus is one of several programs that can make a bootable iso image. One of the things I learned using Rufus is that iso is a fil...

Senator Dick Durbin @SenatorDurbin Glad to see Illinois join more than a dozen other states in challenging the Trump Admin’s changes to the public charge rule. This Admin’s plan to limit legal immigration based on an applicant’s wealth is entirely un-American. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-...

Re: Testy Tessa

Funny you should bring that up. There are instructions all over the web regarding how to make bootable USB sticks. Like hard drives they may be created in MBR or GPT format. All those "live" versions of an OS are MBR with FAT32 file systems. That's why they work as well as they do. Most any UEFI com...

Re: Vivaldi

Be it the Ice Age or not, there is an abundance of evidence that the levels of CO 2 are increasing at an abnormal rate. It's the CO 2 that absorbs the sun's infra red radiation and causes things to heat up. That's physics, not a belief system. The correlation between the increased levels of green ho...

Re: Apex Pro

Well yeah ... if you are going to change the firmware in the router, you can't be using it while it's being updated. I''m always suspicious of firmware updates that come down years after the product was first released. Some bugs always need to be worked out the first year, but after that any updates...

Re: Apex Pro

Steelseries has been around as a company for many years. They have a full line of peripherals and not only for gamers. As is always the case you need to "improve" your product in order to increase sales. This keyboard with programmable switches is the bees knees. I love the idea but can't really use...

Re: Hacking Linux

The only issue I have with homebrew websites is that I DO get what I want. But, there is so much more and an infinite number of variations I do not know about. Reading the man pages would tell me what's out there, but it doesn't inspire me to be creative and use it. That's not the purpose of man pag...

Re: Vivaldi

The key to success in the future will not be money or guns. The nation with the most energy resources will be the one that survives longest. Places like China, India, and Brazil are just ramping up. They won't be a peak production for many years yet. When they reach that point the consumption of ene...

Re: Testy Tessa

If you create a USB stick from a LIVE DVD or Dongle, it is not supposed to write to the machines HD at all. That is only partially true. Linux installation onto USB memory, which you describe so well from your library visit, involves transferring data from the memory stick with the .iso image to a ...

Status Report

My goal is to be able to install Linux, preferably Ubuntu, onto a memory stick that is bootable. There are two ways to do this. The easiest way is to create a traditional Live CD/USB memory stick and to add a partition for persistence. I have done this successfully. The second approach is to install...
