Not keeping up...

Posted 05-01-2019 at 12:24 PM by zaivala

OK, we both abandoned ferenOS when it abandoned what it was doing and went to Ubuntu. We have been running Linux Mint for a couple years now...

In October 2018 I joined a new team at mintCast podcast and have remained a part of that through many episodes (from 293, but missed 300). And this month, I started Distrohoppers' Digest podcast with Tony Hughes (Blackpool, UK).

My Lenove T430 has its 500Gb hard drive roughly in quadrants. sda2, my main driver, features Linux...

More upgrades

Posted 07-19-2017 at 05:34 PM by zaivala

Well, let's see, there was a life upgrade. I got married in November. I gave the X130e to my wife, and last month upgraded her to a T430 like mine.

My machine is now running ferenOS as the main distro. Great configuration is the main thing, being built on top of LinuxMint 18.2 helps. Secondary distro is SolusOS -- while Solus is still struggling with things like my printer and using a 3rd-party office package, I have my best Kodi configuration there. And just for fun I trotted out...

Upgrades

Posted 08-09-2016 at 03:43 PM by zaivala

OK, the Lenovo ThinkPad X130e ran much better than the ASUS EeePC 1015PEM. But my eyes just weren't getting any younger, so I upgraded to a Lenovo ThinkPad T430. All these machines were purchased through eBay, and the unused two are now for sale there. Nobody wants to buy them BECAUSE of Linux -- if they had Windoze on them, they'd be sold already.

I do love the T430. I'm getting moved into my new home. An old online girlfriend has decided to get serious, but we have a border in the...

Moving back and around

Posted 07-08-2016 at 09:52 PM by zaivala

That EeePC 1015PEM was just too laggy no matter what I put on it. I bought a friend a Lenovo X130e and it proved to be too small for her (vision issues), so I bought her a Dell Mobile Workstation 6300 and took the Lenovo in payment (she paid for it). I then put LinuxMint 18 Sarah MATE 64-bit on it, and it runs great.

I also have to move again. And, for the third time, I'm moving to Blaine, TN. Just sucks me back in. But the place I'm moving to isn't ready yet, requiring some patience...

Updates

Posted 05-17-2016 at 11:27 PM by zaivala

I'm not sure what OS I wound up with on that gold EeePC. I gave/loaned it to a person who lost everything or had it stolen and needed a computer badly. I told him if he ever gets something better to send it back.

A few weeks later I started missing it, and wound up buying a white EeePC 1015 PEM. I added the extra RAM, and it just wouldn't run Win7. I could not get it to accept anything else either -- so I found a friend willing to work on it for me and mailed it to him. Turns out...
