New Users / Am i allowed to post my list of "hacks/Tweaks?

If i am allowed to post them for others to use, is there a specified place to post them so they can be reviewed first by "seasoned veterans" of this forum before being unleashed to the "unwashed masses", lol.

WOW, i feel quite honored as a new comer with zero street creds on this forum as of yet.

As a side note, how do i give karma points to others that may deserve to have a few?

For what its worth, i also have an antique eeepc 1015pe series netbook that originally ran i think it was winxp 32 bit even though it has an Intel n450 processor that is rated for 64 bit.

I installed Peppermint 10 64 bit on it and stripped the hell out of it so it could function reasonably well. many tweaks and hacks, lol.

it is still all original with the 1 gig ram, 160 gig HDD'

It cold boots in 45 sec. and reboots in about 38 sec.

other than using an SSD which is not going to happen since i use it to just experiment with, i am thinking that this is just fine.

i have heard through the grapevine that a P 10 respin is forthcoming and would love to know if there is going to be an easy upgrade proceedure or to just let it be.

AH, PCNetSpec, Administrator.

You must be the famous, (or infamous), Mr. Mark Greaves i have heard so much about from my Linux teacher.

This is a very nice, non bloated, tidy distro i have the pleasure of using for the past 2 yrs or so, thanks to your diligent efforts.

Many thanks, The Omen

PS the captchas are torture, i would rather have a root canal minus the novacaine.

As a side note, what does the "karma" mean, i notice i have one, lol.

This is what im running at present on my "home built" computer that my Linux teacher and i built together.

It does a cold boot in 5 seconds and is totally operational in that time.

never saw anything like this until my teacher showed me how it is done.

And YES, He did teach me a whole lot about rewriting "code" that modified, or what i think is called either "tweaking" or "hacking" the original Peppermint Distro.

I really think he was a "black hatter" in another life back in the "bad" old 90s, lol.

This system just runs totally insane.

Thank you for your reply and your "welcome to the forum" to me zebedeeboss...i actually know of you from video blogs as well as your recent visit to the U.S. videos where i saw and heard you in a restaurant etc.

As i mentioned in my "new comer"  to the forum post, im not a "new comer" to Linux OSs nor to Peppermint in particular, i have used and still use many Linux OSs variants thereof since 2016.

My Linux teacher that has taught me everything i know,  steered me in this direction and encouraged me to join this particular forum.

He is a veritable "fountainhead" and "Cornucopia" of Linux knowledge as well as Computer Science and Computer Architecture.

I probably will not be asking for help here as much as i will probably be able to help others with simple solutions to simple problems.

i cannot remember exactly how i came upon your video forums but if possible, please supply a link of where you appear that i might be able to listen in and maybe one day be able to join in on your online discussions when i am available to be able to do so.
