« on: January 27, 2018, 11:19:25 am »
i did try it just now...sound and video quality ok and it did play the webm format but is quite limited in comparison as to what i use it for...i do some VJing/DJing on the side every once in a while, plus its volume doesnt go past 100%...im using very high powered speakers that can handle full output of VLC...so thanx anyways but looks like ill just keep using VLC in the meanwhile...lol...no major biggie...just was hoping to get my solid black back...DAMIEN

hi folks...is it possible to be able to remove the 4.8, 4.10, and the 4.11 kernel series headers from the update manager kernels section...obviously they are now outmoded, non supported etc and i would like to pare down the list if possible...thanks...DAMIEN

thanx there PCNetSpec and 11ryanc...ive been looking over specs on a variety of players...i use alot of mp3 and mp4 formats but also use webm...it seems that webm is not well supported as of yet but vlc supports all...guess im stuck with looking at the white portions...too bad it doesnt support gtk like it used to...oh well, at least it works very well, im just picky, i like the full black look...lol...DAMIEN

hi folks...in a fit of rage, almost 2 yrs ago, (yes i am still able to do this at my age), i purged everything google on my system, they wouldnt let me get to my mail unless i was willing to relax my vigilance and cough up more of my personal information and let them have it...needless to say they did not get it and i didnt get my email...while purging Gmail etc, you should see the dire warnings they posted along the way of how all is lost, how misguided i am etc...lol...i also purged google chrome browser...i have since used zoho mail as my primary mail and protonmail for my most secure mail such as banking, insurance, and other accounts i have...also changed browsers too...i use the slimjet browser  with adding on the startpage search engine (it uses google search but anonymizes search results before submitting them to me)...as well as making sure i use ublock origin and ublock origin extra  and privacy badger and "no google analytics" and minerblock as extensions....ive also done the same with the backup open source chromium browser as well and now all is right with the world...no more microsoft, no more google...now the master, and no longer the slave of the machine...DAMIEN

ps...i also purge everything microsoft and went linux also in a fit of rage the week before when cumulative updates from microcrap windbloes borked my system...for the last time ever

hi folks...maybe, just maybe the time has finally arrived for an open source alternative for processors...as a community, diehard linux users usually always want to have exclusively open source everything on our systems just to stay away from proprietary crap and garbage shrouded in secrecy with so many gotchas built into them,  yet we have not really made much noise about open source CPUs/APUs on our computers...maybe now is the time...DAMIEN

hey there....well if it is broken, im just going to wait till another comes through the pipeline...im not having any of the problems that people have been reporting...when i run...  (grep CONFIG_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y /boot/config-`uname -r` && echo "patched" || echo "unpatched")  ...in the terminal...i get this...

damien1307@DAMIEN1307 ~ $ grep CONFIG_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y /boot/config-`uname -r` && echo "patched" || echo "unpatched"
CONFIG_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y
patched

hi PCNetSpec, hi pin....whoooo...feeling warm, like the old days when using microsoft being a trained poodle jumping through flaming hoops of fire at the carnival sideshow...lol...OK all joking aside and who knows what tomorrow brings (thanks INTEL thanks CANONICAL for being as clear as mud),...at least for now im hoping things are where they should be but one possible request for future consideration...when i was still using LM Mint, i noticed that in the driver update manager, it would always tell you what microcode you had installed...i notice that our driver manager in peppermint does not tells us which one, just that we are using the alternate driver etc. etc.etc......is there any way that in the future that that feature of marking just which microcode is installed/in use could actually be listed?...just a thought, and now that for the moment i cant even remember which one i have in here, is there a terminal command to ask just that question of it?...thanks...DAMIEN
