You gotta love these things :)

Do you love them enough to add them into our selection?

I certainly do and would love to see them all, but there are so many to fit along the post box

I'm fairly sure nobody would complain about two or three rows of them... I've got a 32" screen after all

Welcome Aboard @The Omen! While I use Peppermint exclusively mostly because everthing just works, the friendliness of this forum is a bonus and a joy. While we have placeholder accounts on FB, MeWe & deh twttrs, there's no real community feeling in those places. True, we redirect folks to come here if they have tech related questions. But even so, there's no there out there

When we decided we were gonna go on vacation @SomeDudeInAz, I set up all of the related travel websites in ICE , so that fb, ggl and deh twttrs can't start showing me billions of travel related ads & sites. It's just nice having each website "containerized" in my view of the world. I've also begun realizing how nice it is to have a separate set of bookmarks that are solely related to the site.

Phones... err smartphones need to be renamed as virtually nobody actually makes phone calls anymore outside of our mothers and grandmothers... my buddy Alex Hernandez has an article about that over on Techaeris... https://techaeris.com/2019/09/21/maybe-its-time-to-stop-calling-them-smartphones/

As for all the snooping @clatterfordslim, there's little way-round it now. Aside from chucking all devices into the nearest river and disappearing into a forest. While Scandinavian countries and maybe Scotland still have "freedom to roam the land laws," most of the world doesn't allow that any longer.

Are you using the native email app on your android? Or have you tried bluemail, which is better about notifications, or some other off name email client? Better yet open a proton mail account for Swiss level privacy & encryption!

Feel free to delete this ;)

Was pondering dropping a post about this on our FB and MeWe pages. I'll link to it later from my twttr and Vero. Any objectons @PCNetSpec?

#TeamPeppermint are not yet sure how this will affect our ability to release any future 32 bit releases of Peppermint beyond Peppermint 10, but here's the latest news from Ubuntu:

Flipped on the desktop and Voilą!  ...all of your photos appear @VinDSL... I'll test my various extensions on the lappie...

EDIT: my ghostery addon was to blame... despite having the forum whitelisted, guess that doesn't cover your redirect Mr Dizzle... ...

This can't be good...



Maybe, that's the reason spence can't see the pics on my website :))

nor can I view any of the photos in this thread... and I haven't even yet deployed my traditionally aggressive hosts file on this mini lappie as of yet...

Guess I am an oddball, I just don't see the lure of bouncing around other distributions when Peppermint works so well?!?

We do have a nascent independence movement down here VinDSL... though it's largely supplanted by the Reconquistas led by the Grijalva family.

 8)  We're back in Arizona and slowly readjusting from the 10 hour time shift between Kyiv and Tucson. Happily this dual monitor issue self resolved while we were away after I applied all updates we had missed over the last month. The sun is out after an overnight rain.

All is well in Baja Arizona Peppermint Land!
