Re: Avatar Issues

Debi's car GPS tells her when there is a car stopped alongside the road, where the cops are, and if a lane is closed for some reason. I have no idea how they know a car stopped along the road, but they do. I guess this means they also know how fast we are driving too, hi hi. The GPS in her cell phon...

Re: Windows Moving To A Linuix Kernel

Many moons ago, long before we met, Debi worked at a bank. They had a machine they ran the money through that punched it full of holes. She would bring home a few bags of these hole punches from the bills, put them in a glass jar, and give them as gifts, hi hi. The money first had to be sent to a Fe...

Re: Peppermint Linux

I don't know how many times I had Windows programs where I had to go out hunting for DLLs in order to get it to work. Usually when I had to do this, I would save the missing DLL in the program folder so if I wanted to install it on another machine, I had it available. Back when I was using Windows, ...

Re: Installing Ubuntu

I have the computer up here in my office that Debi managed to get the ransomware on which expanded to affect all the hard drives. Seemed to me such an attack had to be somewhere in the system files. So I wiped the disk and reinstalled the OS. Then only moved a few files over to it I wanted back on i...

Re: Avatar Issues

I'm still using the GPS my son bought for me many years ago. What irked me more than anything was after a few years, and getting warning my maps was out of date. I finally broke down and bought a new map, only to find the roads in our area here were unchanged. I called them about it too after spendi...

Re: Installing Ubuntu

Basically all ransomware does is encrypt a file of certain file names, normally jpg, png, doc, & docx. At least when we were hit. So I did not lose any tiff, bmp, or other images, and none of the odt files were touched. Rather than pay a ransom, which doesn't always work anyhow, or try to use a gene...

Re: Peppermint Linux

Windows is sold in the language of different countries, they don't normally include all possible languages one might be installing the OS in. While Linux Distro's are usually the same throughout the world, so they let you pick what language you want to install, along with what type of keyboard. QWER...

Re: Windows Moving To A Linuix Kernel

Shaving the edges of coins is why they started making them grooved around the edges. Pennies and Nickels are the only two coins they didn't bother with. When I worked in the counting house at two different companies, both did exactly the same thing. After we bundled up the bills we wrote a sequentia...

Re: Avatar Issues

GPS still has a long way to go also. It's the Mapmakers who use the GPS to sync with their maps, and the maps are always out of date. Plus the maps do not always show the erroneous lane markings. Even Debi's newest GPS still tells her to change lanes at a certain intersection, but that lane will tak...

Re: #DeleteFacebook

I know many who try to compare our healthcare system, especially Medicare with Socialized Medicine. Sometimes it almost seems like they are right, hi hi. But their are alternatives, we do have choices. And most of us do need more than Medicare provides, which is why we pay for supplemental insurance...

Re: Windows Moving To A Linuix Kernel

Actually, you wouldn't believe all you are allowed to do with both coins and currency. You can buy paper dollars, the legal ones, with your picture on them, or even a picture of Santa Claus as an example. The key here is, your image, or the picture of Santa is merely an added on sticker on top of th...

Re: Peppermint Linux

I don't think I would be wrong if I said that the vast majority of Windows users could not install Windows on a new empty Hard Drive. Some even have problems installing a new piece of software from an install disk. They don't know how to answer some of the questions, because they don't know what's i...

Re: Installing Ubuntu

Debi was at her computer, stopped and came into the kitchen where I was eating a sandwich for lunch to ask me about something. Afterward, I went back up to my office and no sooner than I sat down, she called. Her computer had the blue screen of death on it. The one interesting thing about the warnin...

Re: #DeleteFacebook

You are correct about the doctor write-off's. Up to a point though. I forget the fancy letters, DRC or DRG codes for services performed. Every service has a fixed rate associated with it, and although doctors can charge any rate they want, anything over the established fair rate is known as excess c...

I've seen all kinds of drone deliver options in various video's on Farcebook. Some of them look quite promising, while others, well, personally, I don't think they would work very well in practice. The USPS version that opened and closed a mailbox like a normal truck wasn't all that great of and ide...

You know Yogi, with all the work you are putting into doing this, I hope you are keeping great notes. Once you get all the kinks worked out and develop a fool-proof method, you could publish it in a book, rather than just give the info away once you have accomplished the ways to do it successfully a...

Re: Peppermint Linux

Just curious if you know that Red Hat Linux rakes in about 3 billion dollars a year. And Ubuntu is pulling in over 250 Million a year, most of which passes on to Canonical. Canonical made a lot of its money from the Ubuntu Software Center until they closed it down a few years ago to pursue other rev...

Re: Windows Moving To A Linuix Kernel

You are correct Yogi, oil from dinosaurs is a myth. In fact, a lot of the oil was formed long before dinosaurs even existed. It formed in the bottom of oceans from algae, dead animals, plankton, and nearly everything, then as those ocean areas filled with sediment it kept the stuff from becoming fos...

You know those little wands you use to pick up things with. Basically just a claw. This is what one of the rural drivers who delivers to Debi's cousin uses. He gets them for about 2 to 5 bucks each and adds a hook to the back of one of the claws to pull the mailbox door open. They type he uses only ...
