Linux Help, News and Information / Re: Lest We Forget...
« on: Today at 12:37:23 PM »
I read Scot's newsletter and when he started the forum, I joined on May 28, 2003. I was still on dialup at the time so it took patience to do anything beyond reading and composing email!

I posted his last PM to me but it was too small to see and preview here hasn't been working for me.

If it weren't for him and his patient and calm manner, I would never have had the courage to try linux!
In January 2008, I bought an eeepc whose OS was linux! I still have that 7" netbook. Before Bruno, no way would I have purchased any laptop or PC whose OS was anything but Windows.

I didn't see the article yet but I always tell people to try a live distro first so that a) they can figure out how to use linux and b) does the hardware like it. If they can't figure out how to get on the internet, then it is useless to them.

So any that don't have a live distro, I'd not consider recommending to a beginner. It is too frustrating to install something and not be able to figure out what to do.

Happy Birthday, Aaron!
Here's to good health!


Thanks Veterans for your service.

So, if I understand correctly, if one has a desktop and a laptop and uses the same email on both then the user folder on both devices would be exactly the same. Truthfully, I wouldn't like that. All our computers have different usernames.

A wee bit OT question.
My husband doesn't have a MS email account so if I bought a new laptop for him with Windows 11, I'd have to open a MS email account for him before he could use the laptop?

For me, I'm done with Windows. Between my chromebook and 10" android tablet, I can do the little I need to do.

I always install the latest ESR version in the Fall. This has been updated today to 91.2.

FF ESR is now at 78.14, I was just offered the update and installed it.

Οι Χαρταετοί & Ο Χασαποσέρβικος  The Charterhouse and the Butcher

I enjoyed this the best. Thank you for all the links. I listened to all 3.

v_v, thanks for your thoughtful assessment of the thread. I stopped reading when it seemed to be fighting. There is enough fighting about almost any topic brought up that I tend to tune out most arguments. (I stopped watching the national news; I rely on headlines to let me know what the latest fight is about.) I do watch the local news daily.

My very biased opinion: on a good day, MoonChild and his sidekick Tobin are abrasive. On a bad day, it gets worse. I've moved away from Palemoon and only briefly tried MyPal. Our XP computers don't go on the internet.

False alarm. User error!  It turns out I did not update my laptop; even though my notes indicated all were up to date. It was still running 4.4.3. I don't know how I missed that one. I usually update my two before tackling my husband's two computers. His are up to date and so was my desktop.

I hope it helps. I can't run the support tool because 3 of the 4 Windows 7 computers don't have NET 4 and I was unwilling to install it.

I did find this when someone complained about the notification of updates in the free version.
If you right click on the MB system tray icon, you will see "Start with Windows" with a check mark next to it. Click it to remove the check then click quit Malwarebytes.
That should stop the popups. If you scan, you do have to remember to turn MBAM off again.

Since last night (after 11 pm) one of my computers keeps telling me there is a new version waiting to be installed.
I was just at the forum and haven't seen anything about it so I'm holding off installing until I find out what version and if there are problems. So as of now, I have an annoying popup on my laptop! All the computers have v 4.4.4 from the end of July.
