That looks good, VinDSL.  I forgot to mention I'm running HTTPS Everywhere too --even though I don't know if doing so is so important any longer. :-\

New Users / Re: Can't shutdown PM7 with 'shutdown now' button.

I'd suggest trying what PCNetSpece suggests.  Not often, but sometimes, my computer takes a long time to shut down, unusually long.  It does eventually shut down, though.  I guess some process is running that doesn't quit as quickly as it should.

Software & Applications / Re: What version of Peppermint do I have?

I went ahead and installed Peppermint 8.  It seems unstable.  I have had it totally crash once already.  Been using it one hour.  :'(

See if this frees the memory:
Code: [Select]
sync && echo 3 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
?

And, me too with the extensions.  I'm running open source ScriptSafe, and Free and Open Source Privacy Badger.  Since I can't read code, I hope they're okay.  Needless to say, I've white-listed Peppermint's forum in Privacy Badger.  ;)

Up to you, my man.  :)

Opera has a built-in 'ad blocker' - after all, the new owner is an Internet security company. I've been using it with everything enabled.

Seems to be working great, with the least amount of hassles of any combination I've cooked up. One can add custom lists too, if desired.





'EasyList' and 'EasyPrivacy' are the safest way to go. See the proviso at the bottom of the 'Block Ads - Manage Lists' window.

Had to run for a minute. Okay, back on topic...

Personally, when I'm checking mem, all I care about is 'RES MEM'.

Looking at your graphic above, Skype and DropBox raises red flags for me, and 'my-weather', whatever that is.

I'd try killing them - I'm assuming they're being autostart'ed at boot - and see if that makes a diff.  ;)
