Re: Block This

I used QuickBooks Pro for years and years. It was great for holding the financial data, and generating invoices, packing slips, etc. However, it did not have a way of storage a .pdf of the purchase order I received, nor an actual copy of the packing slip, or invoice. Nor the UPS labels and receipts,...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Well sorta Yogi. I'm going to confuse the issue by saying, an AC unit does not technically supply cold air to a room. What it actually does is Remove Heat from the air that passes through the evaporator. I know, not logical, but that is what the unit actually does. However, in the process of removin...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

At the time of this incident, I had an old Windows XP Home machine, but only 512megs of RAM in it, and a brand new built-up machine with Windows XP Pro MCE on it with 2 gigs of RAM. My flat-bed scanner I was using with the XP Home machine worked great for years, but then after I got the new computer...

Re: Warranty Irony

I've never had much luck with 3rd party drivers for proprietary equipment. So for the past several years, I make sure the hardware I buy is Linux compatible with full-function drivers. Now although HP does not write the Linux drivers themselves, they do provide all the info necessary so full-functio...

Re: Warranty Irony

There may be a program you can display in the panel showing which fans are running and the temps of the devices they are cooling, if those options are available on the MoBo or with the devices. I don't keep any of those things showing on my computer because they use resources, but every once in awhi...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

You do know besides FOSS Linux Distro's, there are ALSO Proprietary LInux Distro's with the same or better Tech Support than you get from Mickey$oft. The largest proprietary Linux Distro is of course RedHat Enterprise. The next largest is Ubuntu Enterprise Advantage. You can get close to the RedHat ...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Not to be funny here, but the further away from the evaporator, the condenser and compressor are placed, the more efficient the operation of the AC unit is. Back when we had a pond at our florist, we had three flower coolers, and the lines from the compressors to the evaporators ran through coils in...

Re: Block This

FSlint shows you the file name, date created, date modified, and which folder the file is in. But because of the way my files or set up, with duplicates on purpose in different folders, I will forever have duplicates. Another example besides the way I do photo's, has to do with business files. When ...

Re: Block This

I once lost a lot of documents and folder of images using a simple copy & paste and saying Merge All. Apparently copy and paste only goes by the file name, and ignores the date and file size. So for years when I used it, I did each file one at a time, closely reading the date and time, and skipping ...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I might have the name of the component wrong, but they were designed to self-destruct after so many hours of the TV being on. I thought they were called Thermistors, but as usual, I could be wrong. Although they no longer make this type of AC unit. At my Holmes Avenue apartments, all the AC units we...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

I may be wrong here, but Ubuntu is the OS, and Linux Mint is really Ubuntu with different bells and whistles added. When I was playing with Ubuntu, I could add the Mint Maya desktop to Ubuntu and it looked and performed exactly like Linux Mint. Although I use Debian, it does not have some of the fea...

Re: Warranty Irony

Our insurance broker has a Lenovo Yoga laptop with dual boot Windows10 and Ubuntu 17. It is UEFI only! This is a touch-screen laptop, and he zips through all the forms and stuff lickety split. When he was here last week he booted into Ubuntu to show me it worked just as fast, and visit several websi...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

Perhaps you may want to install Ubuntu first, and the Linux Mint. On the little pint sized UEFI only computer I bought for Debi that has Win10 on it. The same one I partitioned and added Ubuntu to. I noticed a new partition was created by Ubuntu named EFI_boot. I have a hunch this is where GrubII is...

Re: Warranty Irony

I honestly don't know how anyone gets anything done trying to use a laptop, unless they are on the move like a sales representative. I guess the kids learn how to use them since they have them for school. I bought one to take to writing meetings, and cringed when I looked around the room, as no one ...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Not on a freezer, but did you know RCA used to install an electronic component called a Thermistor in their TV sets, and wired the circuit in such a way it could not be bypassed. Think of a Thermistor like a carbon arc rod, a carbon arc rod burns to produce light in a motion picture projector, and i...

Re: Block This

My son lives in Cherry HIlls Subdivision (I think) Baxter Road and Clayton Road area. I've not been to St. Louis in about five years, went to Springfield to see my sister about eight years ago. Due to my declining health, this will probably be my last chance to visit my old home town. My sister will...

Re: Block This

I don't know why, but I only tried it with one old small IDE drive so far, but dang it transfers files much faster than my homebrew device by taking the guts out of an old external HD that the HD failed in. If I used it on Windows, I could get a program for it to do all kinds of things. I used a 5 g...

Re: Another Win For Linux

My LG french door fridge leaks water somewhere between the outer and inner walls. My best guess is the water tank itself must have a crack or a bad fitting. The water runs down into the bottom of the freezer section where it freezes and build up until it then runs out the door onto the floor. I used...

Re: Ad Blocking Blocked in Chrome

I had planned to take out of the the Bootstrap CSS only those parts I used for my CSS file. But what I've learned is that so many people use Bootstrap, that once it is loaded on their computer, all other websites using it will load faster. So I never took the time to pick out the parts of it I as us...

Re: Warranty Irony

About all I know of SSD drives is from my brother who is NOT a computer whiz. He used to call me every time he had a problem. He no longer has desktop computers, runs his entire business on two laptops, one never leaves the building and is on 24/7, the other he uses for his personal stuff and carrie...
