Re: Fun With Windows 11

Thanks for that great explanation of things! I had mailed an external USB hard drive to my brother and he had his IT guy set it up to fetch my data each night. I know next to nothing about how he did that. Other than I had to set my computer following their instructions so they could fetch the data ...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

OK, thank you Yogi! None of the ones shown worked, except. The last one, as it was displayed on that website, gave an error message, "No Such File or Directory" Whoever wrote the instruction used a capital letter D. I changed it to a lower case d and it then worked. It shows I am on versio...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

I live in the poorer area of town, and a lot of folks don't have computers, or if they do, not a fast enough connection for doing work from. Our local library has added another 18 computers in a room with a partition between each one so people who have to work from home can do it from the library. B...

Re: WWW Code For Sale as NFT

The problem with laptops is not necessarily their power, as they can do what most people need them to do. And they are portable. The main problem has to do with the users health. It is nearly impossible to use a laptop while sitting properly, having your arms at the proper angle for typing, while ha...

Re: Guess Where I Was Today

In St. Louis, and in St. Louis County, the route of Route-66 has changed many times. I did an article on it once many eons ago, because very few articles mention the original Route-66 came down Market Street in the city, which name was changed to Manchester Road in the county. After a new bridge was...

Re: Fun With Windows 11

Well, since the world runs on Linux, it only makes sense that is where the hackers would turn their interests too. I must have misread something last night. A guy was bragging about his computer system has the capability of hosting 1024 VMs and he has either 21 or 24 core CPU. He did not say how muc...

Re: Guess Where I Was Today

The architect I was using when I was doing total gut rehabs in the older areas of town, could redesign the front of the house to make it look as modern as the newer houses around it, without it costing much at all to do. And he didn't charge me all that much either since he liked coming up with befo...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

My bank does the same thing if I use a new or different computer. But now they know all the computers I've used so I get in easily with just my password. Like they did you to, on a different new machine to them, I will get asked five questions. Also, if it has been more than 6 months to a year since...

Re: WWW Code For Sale as NFT

I've bought a few laptop, used them for a week or two, then stuck them back in their bag and relegated them to the back of my closet. Where a couple of times the batteries leaked and not only ruined the carrying case, but the floor under it as well. I'm not even sure where the Netbook I bought is ri...

Re: Fun With Windows 11

Interesting read Yogi, but it appears they are attacking servers, namely large servers with hundreds of VMs running. Mainly big companies with tons of money. So I guess not running a VM on my machines, or putting my data in the cloud, still might be the best choice for me, hi hi. I was told a long t...

Re: Guess Where I Was Today

I would no longer recognize my old home town. Heck, it changed drastically while I was living there. My parents sold their house and moved out to Ballwin in 1966, but I still finished High School at KHS. I used to run from Creve Coeur into Kirkwood to shop at a business I had used for years, then th...

Re: WWW Code For Sale as NFT

I still have and use a WindowsXP machine, and old Dell I bought used after our lightning strike so I could use some of my old programs. Finally got rid of the really old computers that once ran Win95 and Win98. We didn't have too many hackers bothering us until the Internet became more popular and e...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

Here is the best example I can use to sorta explain those groups of numbers. Let's say you are Big Company A. And you have satellite offices where the work is actually performed, and where account numbers are assigned. The first one or two numbers identify the number as being a part of the Big Compa...

Re: Fun With Windows 11

Could be, and does make sense. FWIW: Some of the images and docs I lost were originals I kept in a password protected folder. So that tells me they came in another way, perhaps just by scanning the entire drive for files while ignoring folders? Although I can boot into a few other Distro's on each m...

Re: Guess Where I Was Today

They must be a fairly new place. I don't know them, but 2 blocks down the street was Spencer's Grill which has been there since my dad was tooling around the area. Checking the map it looks like there are a lot of new places, and most of the places I used to go to are no longer around. I guess 40 ye...

Re: Reeading on Easter Morning

Right, don't put a current drivers license number on a public forum! My TN drivers license is also 9 digits, and the exact same digits as my Class A CDL with all Endorsements. I thought I almost figured out how they came up with the drivers license number, because they are not sequential. But it see...

Re: Non-Fungible Tokens

Sounds like he was buying 90% Vertilox and diluting it down to around 5%, which would make it appear greenish. After I shut down my swimming pool, I still had several buckets of calcium hydrochloride, which is also a bleaching agent. I don't normally use bleach in laundry unless I need it for steril...

Re: WWW Code For Sale as NFT

Well, I feel much safer on Linux than I did on Windows, because that's who the hackers go after. If as in my case, their Windows hack managed to get through to Windows style files, well, that is rare indeed. If you have a computer with everything on it working right. An upgrade will usually break so...

Re: Fun With Windows 11

That makes sense! Even so, I think it still uses the CPU and all the RAM, which are connected to the CPU. What I know about the ransomware we got, the only files affected ended in .doc or .jpg, seems it left all the rest alone. Now I use ext on my computer, and copy the files over to an ntfs drive f...
