Re: What hardware are you using?

The only limitation is that if someone works in a place that requires DOD or higher certification, doing shred won't suffice. If they just need to have it securely deleted, and not be able to CERTIFY it, works amazingly well and obviously completely free.

Re: What hardware are you using?

Had fun at work today. We were looking for a way to securely wipe laptops. We DO NOT require certification from the software that they have been wiped, but of course my coworker would like something. He was looking at killdisk and a few other solutions that while not EXPENSIVE, still cost money (dba...

Re: Rush-ing Out

I think they were one of the most impressive bands (musically) I've ever seen in concert. It was AWESOME to watch Neil get ready. He would literally be surrounded 360* by his set. During the 90's I got to see them in concert multiple times. One of the greatest bands, and unlike many, even their late...

Re: What hardware are you using?

Setting in Carl's Jr. having some lunch while playing around on my E6440. With the new keyboard, I enjoy being able to carry this around and use it again. Heaviest (by far) laptop that I own, although it's actually not that bad (lighter than my work laptop), and it actually still works extremely wel...

I've never heard of it before. To be honest I read the description as: We changed the wallpaper of a distro that simply changed the wallpaper of Ubuntu and call it a new distro...

Re: 4 excellent command line FTP clients

lftp is my favorite. Doesn't work very well with Cron, but works fine in scripts. Have used quite a bit even at work.

Re: Latte- Excellent KDE dock based on Plasma Frameworks

I've seen Latte before, never personally used it. Not a fan of docks myself.

Re: Change of heart, going to Chromebook

Does anyone make NEW chromeboxes? I haven't seen new ones since SkyLake.

IE - I know they still SELL them, but are there any new models with processors newer than Cherry Trail/Braswell/SkyLake?

Re: KDE 5.15 released

I'm here on my Chuwi with Neon actually tonight. The performance is quite good, although I'm not sure it's actually better than 5.14.x. Given the quite humble specs of this laptop (Celeron N3450/6G/120 GB SSD + 64 GB eMMC /home), it runs it without a single real issue. I just dropped off my work VPN...

Re: Not The Last 3 Days

Yup, I definitely know how you feel, and have been in the same boat myself. Assuming that the clots don't require surgery (mine did not) to take care of, you'll actually start to feel better fairly quickly once the medication takes hold. However, it will never be the same really. I to this day can't...
