Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

That's where the era I was raised in was most beneficial. Companies let you see how they did things back then. Also, I was always inquisitive about how things were made. So I went and found out when I could. Many times, similar products are manufactured in different ways, and it produces slightly di...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

I guess shipping broke the solder joints on the mobo where it was plugged in, because the device worked for the computer guy I sold it to. The Silver Yogi has been the best computer I've ever owned. It hums along like a Swiss Watch. At first a fan made a strange noise, which you mentioned it did, bu...

Re: Our Birthplace

I think I told you this already, but we have a SURPRISE cousin, or I should say my wife does. Unbeknownst to anyone else in the family, Debi's sister got pregnant. He dad sent her to a home for pregnant and unwed mothers as soon as she started showing. The baby was put up for adoption, and she retur...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

When I was developing my growing media, although the U.S. has numerous areas with slate and shale, I couldn't use from any of the common sites, either because it had oil in it, or it was not horticulturally stable. After some expensive experimentation the best slate to manufacture my product had to ...

Re: Our Birthplace

My sons wife has taken more of an interest in our family history and genealogy than my son has, so far anyhow. I had a cousin I didn't even know I had give me a phone call one day. He got my number from my brother, who normally would not give it out, but call me to tell me somebody called and he wou...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

I hear ya Yogi, hi hi - Nothing is Standard, never has been, and probably never will be. At least some of the hardware vendors are adding the functionality to the device with a simple output. Take scanners, they all now output to USB sticks if you don't have an on-board program available for their d...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

I'm sure there are a lot of counterfeit drugs out there, so one must really be wary of getting something bad. Almost all of our drugs, and/or the ingredients used in them, come from China and India anyhow. Most of the generic drugs come from plants in India too. And interestingly enough, they are in...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

Between the Linux boxes, I was using SSH, but to access the Windows machines I had to use Samba. The odd thing is, since I did install Samba and set up the configuration files, Debi's Win7 computer can see all of my computers with shared folders, but I can't see her shared folder. On my old Windows ...

Re: Our Birthplace

I do want to get back to it of course. but right now I'm collecting a few salable items, in hopes they will sell. I really don't want to have to ship the items, so am offering them locally for now. But I may have to spread to wider field to get a couple of them sold. My son asked me to put my histor...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

When my late wife was so ill, her daughter had friends in a few countries, Canada, England, etc. but the one who helped her the most was one who was temporarily living in India for her job. Most of my wife's meds were covered by insurance with a small co-pay, but there were a couple her doctor wante...

Re: Our Birthplace

I had to end that Part One of my book so Part Two could start with me and what I have done over the years. I have many photo's I was planning on working into this first book, mainly because a picture is worth a thousand words. But I already have some books with pictures and it only makes it more con...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

I did hit one snag in the new Linux Debian distro I installed. Networking problems. I checked all of my old computers, most of which I only had simple Linux file sharing on, because I didn't need to deal with Windows machines. My main computer, the Silver Yogi with an older Debian on it still works ...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

Our florist had a huge baseball field where we held an annual picnic every year for many many years. Although we always took out insurance for the event, insurance companies are crooked and find a way not to pay a claim. Because of that we got sued big time, which also ended us hosting anything on o...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

Debian itself is one of the most stable Distro's out there. In fact, it is so stable that Ubuntu chose it to build their Distro on and of course Linux Mint is built on top of Ubuntu. To me that is just adding bloat on top of bloat. Debian does not come with all the bells and whistles installed like ...

I think you will enjoy what I've written, it is not edited yet. You have my e-mail address so shoot me an e-mail if I don't get a copy out to you this afternoon. I may not find you in my e-mail lists right away, if at all. Where my family's main group is from was part time under French rule and part...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

Speaking of wheel of fortune. We had a huge one in the front of the plant sales house for customers to spin for a chance to win a plant. CJ got it from a church who used to hold their own carnivals, not shop them out like most. It was used during their casino night, which was discontinued when a new...

Re: Our Birthplace

Thanks Yogi, that was a very interesting read! I've always considered north Africa a more likely source than southern Africa, especially if you look back at how the continents came to be, and compare those with the progression and recession of the ice age. I had a couple of great breakthroughs in my...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

I hear ya! Remember my comment about Google Chrome being broken? Well, an OLD Dell OptiPlex-745 I have here had Linux Mint 17 on it. Well past its end of life. I ran a distribution upgrade which brought it up to 17.3, but Google still didn't work. I had a DVD of Linux Mint 18.3 I used on another com...

Re: Parrot Linux and Btrfs

When I worked at Sverdrup & Parcell downtown, we had several fellow employee's who had bets on nearly everything. At lunch we played poker every single day, except the first Friday of every month, a Catholic day of devotion. Trouble is, instead of nickel, dime, quarter I was used to playing, the com...

Re: Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

I have to agree with everything you said above! Certain groups, in this case political groups, dominate certain social media sites. Even those who claim to be neutral as a site, are still overrun with one sided comments due to the domination of certain groups. Actually, Quora is dominated by the dem...
