As much as I love Mozilla Firefox and the company behind it (and all that they do for privacy and all that they stand for), Firefox just runs frustratingly slow on my ThinkPad T61 under +Peppermint, +Fedora Project, +Slackware, and +Debian. No matter what I do to try and make it run faster, nothing works.

I realize that I have a T61 with only 4GB of RAM but this is just ridiculous. I have absolutely nothing else open and very little RAM being used in the background. As much as I don't want to, I'll have to switch back to Chromium until I can figure this out.

Older CPUs suffer with newer FF... But Chrome refuses even to be installed?!!! Go QupZilla. Midori crashes often.

Again, one of my heroes with a statement that is right on mark. And again, like I've said a thousand times, I'm glad he didn't win another term as president. He's doing so much good in the world. Something he wouldn't have been able to do with all the corruption of Washington.
With his signature resolve, former US President Jimmy Carter dives into three unexpected reasons why the mistreatment of women and girls continues in so many manifestations in so many parts of the world, both developed and developing. The final reason he gives? “In general, men don’t give a damn.”

Awesome!
A Florida photographer, fired by a client for showing support for the SCOTUS marriage ruling, has the last laugh.

Racism and any other kind of segregation is bad as far as any one sane can see.
I have no problem with any man loving any woman (as long as they are not married to third parties ;-) ). We are all different grades of beige  ;-)

As for anything else, I see people as people, not straight vs gay, tall vs short, republican vs democrat, gringo vs latino... People is people, a good worker is a good worker, a good, honest fellow at work, school, the neighborhood, etc., JUST PLAIN PEOPLE.

So, is anyone running the latest +Peppermint 6? I've been away from Peppermint for a year or so and thought I would give the latest release a go on my T61. I've had it running for a week as my main OS and all I can say is...Wow! Very, very fast. And very stable. Well, except for Shockwave constantly crashing in Chromium but that's not the fault of Peppermint. Happens on my Debian and Slackware installs, as well.

Great job to all the folks at +Peppermint!

For all of you naysayers of single-payer insurance...

$37 Billion, folks!!! Still think insurance companies aren't ripping us off and single-payer is a bad idea?

I have my Surly Karate Monkey. I love that bike! I had my nice commuter bike until it was destroyed in an accident with a car.

The crowdfunding campaigns shows that Open Source is not about free of cost software.

I'm a Freelance Web, Linux and FOSS Consultant. I believe that everyone should have the right to do what they want with their software and not have their hands tied by companies like Microsoft and Apple and their Closed Source, proprietary software.

I'm a Socialist/Green, Vegan, animal-rights advocate, earth lover, anti-guns and anti-war.

Hands down, the best coffee shop in Belleville. There are other coffee shops in town but they don't even compare. The owner and employees are the friendliest people around, they have Vegan options for frozen yogurt, they serve homemade breakfast sandwiches with, again, Vegan options, and the coffee is locally roasted, organic, and single-sourced. This is a downtown treasure that my family and I LOVE supporting (almost on a daily basis).

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.
