Re: The weather has been crazy

9? As in the single digit? Wow, that is chilly!! Even when I lived there I would have to actually wear PANTS at that temp (now I'd probably be whining like a little baby my bloods thinned so much when dealing with the cold from living here).

Re: Firefox 72 released

I have no issues with having set releases, but I think both Chrome and to a lesser extent Firefox have suffered some quality issues from the pace of their releases. Also if you look back at our own personal thoughts, how often has it been "I can't see a difference" due to only a few VERY minor thing...

Re: What hardware are you using?

So one of the chromebooks I was bidding on had some bids removed, which had me become high bidder again. So I got another Chromebook 13 G1 for $86 + shipping & tax ($105 total). This one's only 8 GB ram, but otherwise identical to the one I already won. So I'll get the Chrome files off it that are n...

Yeah, Chrome's breakneck pace forced Mozilla to step up theirs.

Re: Kubuntu Focus laptop is here!

I'll be honest, I'm not impressed. It's not exactly small, and I don't like Nvidia graphics since they don't work well with open source drivers. Hard pass on any interest from me.

Re: Another weird laptop with TLP

So one thing I notice without TLP is that it has a hard time building a battery profile. I've been using the Chromebook while doing laundry, and when I first turned it on it was showing 2.5 hours remaining till dead (at 100% battery). About 30 minutes later it was showing 9 hours until dead. Now it'...

Re: What hardware are you using?

V130 was one of the few Vostro's I ever liked the design of. Very thin and attractive system. Lost me since they didn't have any decent LCD's available for it, only 1366x768. AT 13.3", for me requires at LEAST 1600x900, preferably 1080P... Finally got the GeekBench stuff done for the 7400 and the HP...

Re: The weather has been crazy

60's and sunny today. And tomorrow. And Monday. Might hit 70 or just over any of the above. Nice time of year to be in Phoenix.
