Re: Snapshots

Where is this use all cores setting? Can't find it? Ahhh, right. I must be thinking of one of the other tools which uses squashfs. Also, what I was describing -- a non-permanent (thermal throttling, and) shutdown -- is off-the-mark for the OP. "3 beeps" bios POST code for ?memory error ?v...

Re: woogaloo (beta): GUI for performing hodgepodge system tasks

"woogaloo" is a whittled-down UnlockMe, as is noted in the script's header. ====> stripped of the wget | sudo sh stuff ====> dialogs converted from zenity to yad ====> services -related tasks converted (UnlockMe presumes systemd systemctl is available) It's just an academic exercise, explo...
