    Linux Performs Poorly In Low RAM / Memory Pressure Situations On The Desktop

    Microsoft disabled system restore when the update got too large for the SSD's at the time. Most were 32GB and just large enough to download the major updates. Sadly this is no longer the case as even with no restore it just does not fit.

    Best Linux 2020

    I have no programming knowledge so I need an OS that does not require it. So far I have tried 4 different ones but some were unstable or I had to use my windows laptop for certain other applications. Elementary is great but it stopped booting for some reason so I switched to Mint 19.3 Happy...

    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    Thanks Smiley. The linux elementary was too unstable so I had to persevere with LM. I tried re downloading the OS from different mirrors but still the same. "Unable to copy packets. Check internet connection". Works fine from USB. I then downloaded 19.2 and installed without internet. Rebooted...

    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    @smiley_ lauf I tried on many occasions to install LM 19.3 Cinnamon but it needed internet to complete but had no driver for my system. It worked well from the USB but on install it would get stuck on wifi driver not working. Sadly I had to resort to Elementary.

    Mint 19.3 not working anymore.

    Interesting reading. I also have an Acer E11 laptop. 32GB SSD. 2GB DDR memory and 2.58GHz processor. Linux Mate had the same issue so I downloaded Mint 19.1 and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. This time it worked well on the USB drive. Installing it on the SSD however was not simple. It kept...

    Mint 19.3 not working anymore.

    My 32GB SSD laptop is no longer running smoothly with windows 10 so I downloaded Mint 19,3. I used Rufus to install it to my flashdrive and I played around with it to test it. I then clicked on "Install" to install it to my SSD and to delete windows. On completion it would not boot up so I...

    MBD debt collectors.

    I have no idea what that "new" debt was for. I then put their con scheme on paper with all the proof and a flash drive of a recording with their agent shouting and threatening me. Sent it to them and that was the last I heard of it.

    Blood Pressure...

    Wow. Is that AF with ventricle tachycardia? If so then it could be benign electrical problems and not heart structural problems.

No need for hotel bookings if your intention is to immigrate. Once you are both there then start the pre settled status application. It is so simple via the...

    Immigrating to the UK

    Health wise we left SA just in time. Soon after getting pre settled status my wife and I had to go for total bloodwork tests. A few days later my wife had to go for a mammogram. Then in the post we both received a parcel with a poo sample kit which we posted off. A colonoscopy is done if blood...

    Where to Clear my mind in Cape Town?

    Go to the World of Birds in Houtbay and sit inside the large aviary where the tiny monkeys sit on your head and climb into your pockets. The small colourful birds flutter around you and tweet their songs. Spend the day there as it is so soul soothing. Or go fishing.
