But I can't take the credit. I only spent about a weekend on it. All the heavy lifting was done before hand. It's Just Linux Mint, with just a few extras.
I AM going to have to move my home machines to 64 Bit versions of Linux since Chrome is doing what they're doing. I'm kind of hoping to wait until the next LTS is out. Xenial Xerus? Should be around the corner, and then the Mint Version of that ought to be around the next bend, and over a bump or two.
I have priors for phone abuse. The holster system has probably saved me 500 bucks over time in un-dropped, un-broken phones/toilet-dunked phones, swimming pool dwelling phones etc.
Some questions about installing the advised application Blueman. It is a gnome gtk app but it works flawlessly in KDE without a ton of pulled-in dependencies. Many thanks to for this much simpler process. I am now wire-free at my desktop. However my Superlux HD 668B's do get used when listening to Vinyl. Days of Future Past is amazing under good headphones.
Grab your kevlar folkses, this is gonna get bloody.
I have a bazillion things going on right now so if I don't respond right away, I am seeing your posts.
ASUS really built those things like tanks. I also had a P4C800-E Deluxe that was in service for over a decade, from 2002 to ~2014. Over its life it ran FreeBSD, then Debian, then Ubuntu, then Fedora, then Debian again.
The only reason I replaced it with a P6X58D was to get 24GiB and hardware virt for KVM, it was still running strong (though I had to replace the power supply three times during that run)
New question: since fairly new machines have 2+ GB RAM, I guess the other issue is how well those two use CPU and GPU (if).
My point: In a core i"N" generation PC, with 3 or more GB of RAM, it does not matter which one you use. For older computers (early Core2Duo and single cored ones) with 1 GB or less RAM, the song is another: you need other browsers.
It is also sad Ggl is nit making 32 bits Chr any more; and it is enerving that sites require top plugins to work well, and make your tiny browser life miserable.
I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
And I don't care what you may feel about that in particular. That isn't the point here, but it's part of the whole, real environment that surrounded me for a profound period of my life.
So, in reality...my political bent was impotent.
It didn't matter at all what I thought or believed, from a political standpoint anyway. My current president told me what my political standpoint was at any given time. Much of that given time, I was expected to carry out the orders of my president by the most violent of means. A lot of people died while obeying said orders, so what I believed was irrelevant. The only thing that mattered was the accuracy of a soldier's rifle.
Unfortunately, holding and obeying orders for such a long period of time is a hard thing to shake. But let me tell you what did shake it. and it shook it down to its core, shattering into tiny shards and allowing my ideas and beliefs to take the fore.
In October of 1998, The Digital Millennium Copyright Act was passed by the Senate and began its journey to then President Bill Clinton's desk. From there it was signed and passed into law. What I found unsettling was the fact that I had heard little of the congressional back and forth of this issue. Why? Because the law was passed, comfortably snuggled inside a farm subsidy bill, during the wee hours of the morning. Congress knew better than to let this bill see the light of day and the scrutiny of the general public. If the public reaction to the recent SOPA legislation can be a benchmark, then the DMCA would have been a huge public concern in 1998.
But all of that only served to make me dig deeper into how our legal system works, and specifically in the House and the Senate, where the majority of laws are either born or die on the vine. I'm not particularly comfortable with this video's lack of citation, but if it can be taken at face value, this short presentation can explain in full, just what is wrong with out political system here in the US. It's a good starting point for young minds...it gives them a place of reference as they mature into young, and voting, adults. Scroll down to "Corruption is Legal in America.
It is well worth the few minutes you invest in watching.
http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2016/feb/03/jimmy-carter-us-politics-corrupted-by-money-audio "It gives Legal Bribery a chance to prevail".... And how.
But then again...I have no idea, outside of the posted reviews, of which ones to seriously look at for purchase. Has anyone in my G+ circles used one or presently have one? What are your suggestions if I need to stay under $50.00
Japanese no-name with NFC pairing and class 1 (!!) transceiver. I like the big volume wheel, and of course the class 1 radio implies solid range. Comments say the battery life is upwards of 16 hours. This is definitely my recommended pick.
http://www.amazon.com/Technica-AT-PHA05BT-Bluetooth-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B0065V9TXC/ I'm a big fan of the AT gear we have (2 headphones and a turntable), and the reviews indicate that this has great sound. Seems like the pairing button is microscopic, though, so maybe this is less than ideal.
Those are about $50 each, so these following ones are a bit cheaper, around $30-35:
Hideous, but seems to have decent specs.
Again, ugly (this seems to be common with cheaper gear these days), and seems to have poor range and mediocre battery life.
Cheapest yet, and least ugly. Has a loud beep every time you press a button. Definitely not something I would buy.
There are a couple others, including an Anker dual-function one that piqued my interest, but my first and second choice would be the little no-name Japanese one I linked first. After that, I'd probably choose the AT, or go a step up to the AT headphone amp with bluetooth, but that's $120.
