Re: Is Linux Really Worth it?

Quite a bit of info there to chew on Yogi. The best part, it is clear enough even for me to understand. I'm still thinking BIOS and UEFI can still live together in harmony on the same machine, and here is why. All computers, whether BIOS or UEFI, (here's another place where using the same term is co...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Google Chrome added a new bug to their browser six upgrades ago. So I've been downloading each new upgrade to see if they decided to fix the new bug they added. Apparently they don't care and don't plan on fixing it. Many of us jumped back to using the last known working version of Google Chrome, bu...

Re: Ski By Fire

A while back, while I was between writing jobs, I was playing some on-line skill games. There was this guy who was #1, the top ranking player for over three years. Each time I thought I made it to the top of the heap, I would find others with higher scores. Then I learned how to find who was really ...

Re: Migration Paths

Considering the term Bandwidth has been used since the days of Marconi, and by every radio station, and by every TV station, and by every Radio Operator regardless of what service they fall under. The newcomer on the block, the Internet, is not only stealing existing words to use for themselves, but...

Re: .htaccess

It's fairly easy for them to check for bot posts, and those who use auto-post systems. No matter how many posts they line up, when the cycle runs it is normally on a fixed schedule. And that is how they get caught. One of my book promoters used to post about 5 books per day by hand, so the times wer...

Re: Is Linux Really Worth it?

I'm usually at my computer from 8am until 10pm only breaking 1/2 hour for lunch and 2 hours for dinner, unless there is a honey-do chore stuck in there somewhere I need to do or get killdecated. However, I'm simply just using the computer and programs, while you are working with the computer system....

Re: Another Win For Linux

Well, I'm not going to pay 200 to 5000 dollars a year to have SSL so it shows HTTPS when someone connects. I know you can get free ones, but they need reset every 30 or 90 days. Too much trouble. There are a couple of reasons I use Google Chrome over Firefox. But the main one has to do with the way ...

Re: .htaccess

It's all about the MONEY Yogi! Bots follow people in hope they will follow back. When they get enough folks following them back, they then sell that account name to someone else, so they start out with for eg. 100,000 followers. And there are idiots who will buy such a package. On Twitter, the numbe...

Re: Migration Paths

I never understood why or how the term Bandwidth came to be used with wired communications. As a Ham Radio Operator, Bandwidth is the width of a signal on a given band. Also how wide the legally usable band is. There is also Bandspread but that wouldn't apply here. I do know that different frequenci...

Re: Ski By Fire

When I was working for a plumbing company, working my way up the ranks, I had just started my Journeyman level when I as asked by another plumber to come help put the plumbing in at a new house he was building for himself. I honestly was more than surprised he asked me, especially with all the other...

Re: Is Linux Really Worth it?

I have one dual boot, actually quad boot, hi hi, since it is booting up and allowing me to select one of three different hard drives. Like you, I have the original Windows on the untouched disk it came on. Never repartitioned or anything, left it like it came. The second hard drive had Debian and Ub...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Yeppers, I use Google Chrome for nearly everything now. It's the Linux version which is a little different than the Windows version. Now we don't have to tell it every three months that we want to see non HTTPS websites. Host providers of web sites have got to have their servers protected as best th...

Re: Ski By Fire

Cork gaskets had to be BURNED in. Created quite a smell in the car too, which is why they don't burn them anymore. But if they do it the right way, and Burn the Cork Gaskets, they won't leak. A master transmission specialist, and friend of my dads, told us a lot of the secrets as to why his work alw...

Re: Migration Paths

Back when Cable TV was analog, I could get it free just by placing a loop antenna near one of their connection boxes. No physical contact with the cable, their box, or the utility pole. Just a fiberglass rod holding my loop a couple of feet in front of the box. If they don't put a cap on one of the ...

I follow his Twitter feed, which used to show what device he sent the Tweet on.
Since a couple of months ago, it no longer shows a device or location.

Re: Is Linux Really Worth it?

It the computer makers themselves who are doing the locking of the computer into a single OS. They also leave numerous parts off the motherboards as well, and only keep those that are necessary to run the OS they designed the computer for, and the programs they expect would be used on them. This is ...

Re: Another Win For Linux

The URL bar for your website shows the lower case letter "i" inside a Circle and states Not Secure, all in black. UNTIL I start typing a message in this box. Then it changes to a Solid Red Triangle with an Exclamation point inside, and the Not Secure message changes to Red. Doesn't bother me one bit...

I'm almost certain Trump has finally gotten rid of his personal Android phone, after NSA finally came up with one for him to use as a person phone and transferred his call list over to it. From what I understand, whenever he needs to make a call of importance, he used a hardwired phone, and not even...

Re: Migration Paths

Just for grins, when we replaced all the fluorescent tubes in our office each year, I would take all those we took out and bring them over to a park near my brothers old house. High tension wires ran across the park on super tall towers. We would carry those lamps around until we found a spot where ...

Re: Ski By Fire

There are safety features in almost all automatics that won't let you downshift. An internal governor keeps it from downshifting until the rpms are low enough to do so. Some cars this is set lower than other, in some cases too low. Considering I always manually shift an automatic, I truly am surpris...
