Re: Win 8 and 10 are more insecure than Win 7

Well, turns out I won't need to. She caught wind of Win 7 going out at the first of the year, emailed me about installing Linux. Pretty isn't what gets her, but I'm sure when she gets time she'll be going through the Linux wallpapers. Soon as I can get $s to get to Colorado Springs, Maw, we'll git '...

Re: Arch 32-bit download?

Viking, my fav Arch buddy, what say you?

I want to try it on my old HP laptop.
Thanks!

Arch 32-bit download?

Hiya,

I'm going through server after server here, and am unable to find a 32-bit version of Arch at their download pages. Is there one, or will a 64-bit version detect 32? Thanks.

Turns out, this time they created yet another vulnerability, by turning off the registry backup, which in turn screws up System Restore!
Idiots.

Re: First truly open-source smartphone

I don't think so. Google is nothing but bloatware.

I'd love bare bones, @R_Head, but how do we get the apps we do use on it?

Re: I deleted my /etc !!!!!

We have those things. Sometimes however, we get busy, and plus, it's a lot more fun to screw a system up and then fix it lol. Anything else is just plain boring.

Re: What are you reading right now?

Appointment In Samarra by John O'Hara, a quick read but at the same time... wow. Lesson learned.

Having just seen what I could of the series on Netflix, I'm also reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. I was surprised. I actually liked it on Netflix.

Re: Win 8 and 10 are more insecure than Win 7

My mom is on 7 now, and won't be upgrading it for a fair while. I'm glad. In her lifetime, she may not see the crap Windows versions.

I read books, articles, here and there newspapers (I'm not awfully supportive of online papers. Give me good ol' real ...
