Re: Notes To Self

Thanks for all the info Yogi. I no longer have to reboot after a kernel upgrade on any Debian based system. I first noticed this on Linux Mint, after an upgrade it always says the system it up to date. I decided to check what kernel was in use, then rebooted and it was the same new kernel. I still u...

Re: Notes To Self

I think Windows10 was the NT based version of Linux's Rolling Release, which at the time appeared to be a great idea. No more major version changes which usually required a fresh install over an upgrade to prevent problems. However, the biggest problem with a Rolling Release is finding hardware inst...

Re: Notes To Self

My house in Creve Coeur came with a built-in intercom system. The main control box was in the kitchen, but you could trigger any room, including the front and back doors from any room, so it was a pretty fancy system even though we never used it. I brought it up, because when I set about to remodel ...

Re: Notes To Self

I have two phone numbers also, but they are twinned together so I don't know if they used the spare number or not. I was angry when I first found out the two separate phone numbers used a single line, it defeated the purpose of my having two separate lines. I couldn't call one from the other, and al...

Re: flooding france...

Where a cloud drops its rain has a lot to do with which creeks and rivers catch the bulk of it. Living here in the mountains, it is not uncommon for normally dry creeks to become flooded while the normally wet creeks are almost dry. A quick glance at a topographical map and compare it to where the r...

Re: Notes To Self

I do have my cell phone set-up so only those on my phone list can make the phone ring, and of course the President, hi hi. But I can't do that on my landline phone because I don't know what new customer or agent may decide to give me a call. It used to be telemarketers did not call business numbers,...

Re: Notes To Self

I've tried, but the form you need to fill out requires having names, e-mail addresses, location, etc. None of which I had. The only thing I had is the temporary address where I had to send the ransom. The source is probably somewhere in Nigeria where our government has no ability to do anything. Whe...

Re: Notes To Self

I had a remote 440 rig designed solely for controlling our 2-meter repeater. Ugly little tin box with a black vinyl covering which was textured so trapped every bit of dust and dirt. Looked like it was 20 years old only a few months after I bought it. But it worked well, and was used by all the club...

Re: Notes To Self

I'll hit your Ham Radio question first, only to say I never got my equipment set up since I moved south, so have been away from it for a long time. That being said, before I moved south, I used my computer with my ham equipment for everything from copying and sending Morse Code to handling Packet Ra...

Re: Notes To Self

The collection of the states united as The United States of America is a Republic. Individual cities, counties, and states operate as a Democracy. Almost every great nation that fell, did so when their tax base crossed 25%, we've been way over that for decades, and only artificially held together. S...

Re: Notes To Self

You might find this hard to believe, but my entire family, and every ancestor since they came to America all became Democrats. After Carter, several switched to Republican and remained so during the Reagan and Bush terms. We had two major newspapers in St. Louis, The Globe Democrat, and the St. Loui...

Re: Notes To Self

I went to KHS in the '60s and about 1/4 of our school was black when I started, and 1/3 black when I graduated. We never had any racial type problems crop up during those years I was in school here, although many other states seemed to have more than their share of problems. Things changed considera...

Re: Notes To Self

I know things have changed since I moved south, but all the years I was growing up, and after I owned homes too, we only paid Real Estate Taxes to the County. The municipalities I lived in did not collect Real Estate Taxes. If they started their own Fire Department, then whatever taxes were paid to ...

Re: Notes To Self

I don't use a duplexer myself either. If I need to print on front and back, I usually do it manually to make sure it comes out as expected. However, when I bought the first of these printers, this was the only model offered on sale. Now the later version with WiFi is the cheaper model but doesn't ha...

Re: Notes To Self

Although I've been burned many times now by HP on home equipment, I do know their commercial equipment is top notch, especially the equipment used in the medical profession. The funny things is, although HP equipment is used in operating rooms and for patent monitoring, it seems they use Dell for ad...

Re: Notes To Self

I've had a few Compaq computers that worked and ran great, up until they were made for HP. That being said, other than hand-me-downs, I've had all of my computers custom built, mainly to save money and get better quality than off-the-shelf computers. The man who built my last 5 or 6 computers is no ...

Re: Notes To Self

We have WindowsXP computers, but you can no longer open the game, it demands you update flash player, and you can't update XP versions anymore. The game played fine on XP with only 2 gigs of ram. The new machine I bought for her had 4 gigs of ram and Windows 8.1. The game was slow on it, but when th...

Re: Notes To Self

Way back when I ran WindowsXPProMCE, I had tons of programs to do most of the things I needed to do, and fast too. Many of these programs were obtained as add-on's to software that came with various printers. I learned the hard way that some of these programs looked to make sure the specific printer...

Re: Notes To Self

Hmm. Although I don't use Virtual Machine, I don't see why it would be much different than a dual boot machine and accessing the files on the OS which is not running. Eg. Partition 1 Windoze, Partition 2 Linux. While in Linux, go to My Computer, open SDA and mount Partition 1, then use your file bro...
