    Re: Old Age and Linux

    There is definitely a learning curve, but then again a lot of stuff simply works and the installer is no harder to use than windows. I initially had trouble figuring out how to make a shortcut to my...

    Re: New build - Intel or AMD?

    I was tempted to destroy a $10 warehouse black wire basket and use the mesh last time I attached a fan to something, but then I found a grill online and bought that instead.
    I've seen some mesh at...

    Re: Old Age and Linux

    Linux MINT XFCE - download it, use Rufus to burn it to a flash drive, boot off the drive and have a play - it's pretty much fully functional without installing and works with most hardware. One...

    Re: unidentified network, no internet.

    If it is a router you can still use it, just has to be reconfigured as a switch/ access point. Some have an option to do this otherwise you can generally just turn off DHCP and connect to the fibre...

    Re: Hard drive very busy for no reason?

    Yes but if Linux was as popular as windows you'd need to be running anti-virus and anti-malware on it as well. At the moment you can largely get away without it because it's just too small of a...
  11. Re: Can you ring during power outage while connected to fibre optic?

    Does look like a good little unit, I don't like the external battery Idea in my Lounge though and a small UPS can be had cheaper so despite the ridiculousness of going AC- DC - AC - DC I think I'd...

    Re: Missing MBR helper?

    Is it a disk image or just a partition image? perhaps it missed the hidden system partition where windows hides some boot files, it'll still work if the disk already has that but won't boot without...
  16. Re: Build more roads - forget buslanes and cycleways

    You have anger issues, sure it's stupid but why do you even care when it usually has no direct effect on you.

  17. Re: Can you ring during power outage while connected to fibre optic?

    Re: Connected to the net - yet not connected

    Turn the router off, wait a minute or so, turn it back on. Maybe distract yourself for a few minutes while it starts up and settles down. Then see if that helped.
