GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: New Linux Kernel: The Big 5.0
« on: Today at 03:25:41 am »
Got rid of Butter FS (I always forget to do  that) and about 70-80 other abandoned packages  8)

Hey, Chief, check out this slip-of-the-tongue. Maybe, you can sue this Android 10 reviewer   :D

This isn't the first time I've heard someone say "Peppermint". Google really blew that one...

Thank YOU, Chief.

I've always been a Kingsoft/WPS Office fanboi, but had given up looking for it  ;)

BTW, who the heck wants a snap if there's a deb :)
(or even if there isn't ;))

Knew you'd appreciate that  :D

First thing I do, on a fresh install, is purge Snap and Flatpak... LoL

Found the additional WPS fonts over here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/r1z4jb5dini6891/wps_symbol_fonts.zip

Be careful what you click on. There are lots of landmines on that site (if you aren't running an ad blocker)  :)

I placed the unzipped WPS font files into: '/home/.fonts' and restarted. Bingo!

I installed the 32-bit ver on this Dell Dimension 3000 doorstop. Works fine.





When I was surfing their website, I ran across a Snap:

http://kdl.cc.ksosoft.com/wps-community/download/6758/wps-office_10.1.0.6758_amd64.snap

Need to be on a 64-bit machine, to test that ver, though...  ;D

Poor soul... RCs are a sickness.

I was okay for awhile, but they're starting to take over my brain again   :)

AFAIK, WPS Office for Linux has been 'on hold' for over a year.

I'm alternately using Office 365 (online), MS Office (dual-boot), and LibreOffice 6.1 (local install), depending on the machine that I'm on,

Personally, I highly doubt that WPS Office for Linux is coming back, anytime soon.  :(

Nah, that's alright.

I still own a few doorstops...  :)

Everything shuts down before I can even lift my figure off the mouse button.

So, I don't see the splash screens at either end - boot screen nor shutdown  ;D

General Discussion / Re: Finally - I'm an EVGA Elitist
« on: March 16, 2019, 05:15:37 pm »
This all started, when I came to the realization of how many EVGA cards I had acquired, over the years.

I'm really not a 'Chevy vs Ford' kinda guy, when it comes to video cards. I'm a fan of 'value vs taking it in the shorts'.

The thing that put me over the top was when we were talking about sound cards, a month or two ago. I suggested that a user might consider going with a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy. All of this talk about sound cards, in the middle of my flurry of recent hardware upgrading activities, made me lust for an Audigy 7.1.

As fate would have it, I ran across the freshly released EVGA Nu Audio PCIe Sound Card, but I wasn't willing to pay $250.00 USD for it.

EVGA sent an email out, saying that "Elite Members" could buy it for $199.99 USD. I thought, "Cool, I've certainly bought enough of their products over the years." So, I applied for "Elite Member" status, but I didn't qualify. Now it became a challenge.

There was no way that I was going to buy an $1,100.00 video card, to save $50.00 on a sound card, but the "Elite Member" challenge remained fresh on my mind - as silly as that may seem. Nobody likes rejection, right?

Yesterday, I got an email from EVGA, inviting me to be an "Associate". Part of being an "Associate" allowed free membership in the "Elite Member" program. But, get this... You can't apply to be an "EVGA Associate" unless you also qualify to be an "Elite Member".

So, it was GAME ON, now...  >:(

After reading pages and pages of 'fine print', I discovered that I could qualify for "Elite Member" status - and thus "Associate Member" status, if I could prove that (Option 2) I had purchased at least two (2) qualifying EVGA video cards, sound cards, or power supplies, in the past year.

As it turned out, I have bought three (3) qualifying EVGA video cards, during the past 12 months. I registered the serial numbers and purchase dates at the EVGA site - the site accepted them as being valid - and BOOM BABY!  "Elite Member"status was available.

Applying for "Elite Member" status was easy. The form was already filled out and waiting for me, because the last EVGA video card I bought was actually purchased directly from the EVGA site. Everybody else was out-of-stock. Since they already had all of my personal information on file, it was just a matter of checking a box, stating that I had read and agree to the terms and conditions of the program. After that, becoming an "EVGA Associate" was a slam-dunk. All I had to do is check a box there, too.

And, that's the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey would say...  8)

I haven't seen the Plymouth splash screens once, since I built this thing  ;D

Dude - That is insane  :D  :D  :D

IKR

Never seen a machine that consistently boots in the 3-4 second range.

This thing flies with Peppermint 9 on top of Linux 5.0  :)
