I get them shutting down XP. It's the blatant lying that MSE is doing that I described that's infuriating. Lying? Maybe MS is just "enhancing the truth" a little. :wink: I think the point they're trying to make by turning red and having warnings pop up is that MSE may still be running, bu...

I have no love or sympathy for Microsoft. But in all fairness to them, 12 years is an awfully long time to support an operating system. Apple supports its operating systems for far fewer years, and is famous for its planned obsolescence program that "upgrades" its hardware to make it impra...

Also, just want to clarify something. I store very little data in my /home area. On my dual boot machines I use the Windows side as my data storage site... When you say "Windows side" do you mean the Windows root partition, or another NTFS partition? A long time ago, I made the rookie mis...

When I installed rootactions-servicemenu.pl on my system, the service menu installer failed to copy the *.pl file into /usr/local/bin, even though I entered my root password three times. I had to then copy the file into /usr/local/bin manually. I'm not sure why. How did you install it? There's a kd...

These kids are so cute! They all came pre-wired for the 21st century: if they'd never seen an iPad before, they all would have figured it out in about 10 seconds.

I was catching up with some back episodes of the TV series "Intelligence" I recorded. In Episode 9, U.S. Cyber Command is attacked by a computer virus that infects USCC's computers and renders Gabriel's brain-chip implant FUBAR. As things begin to unravel, Nelson Cassidy trouble shoots the...

This is only for MX and antiX. But ... I can easily provide you with an xdelta3 patch to convert a Mepis-8.5 iso file so it will work with this option too. Thanks, BitJam, but it won't be necessary to go to the extra work for SM 8.5. I loved that version and used it for many years, but I've left it...
