Re: A cautionary tale ... "The video wars of 2027"

I wouldn't worry about it - there'll be either A World War (China and USA being the main actors) An extinction level event caused by a Super Volcano or Asteroid strike or a Gamma-ray burst A Global Pandemic (our antibiotics are becoming ineffective and we still don't fully understand how a Virus wor...

Re: Wildlife wallpapers

I'll upload a few more wallpapers later... I give up trying to upload the smaller res ones in this thread, as I'm close to shouting at the screen ;)

(I upload - I place inline - I preview... all pics gone)

Re: MX-* apps update

Frankly me neither anymore, I used to like it during MEPIS time. I did this mostly as an exercise, I probably won't use it. It does have some nice features. I don't think I will use LXQt either, it's not much lighter than Xfce, I think it saves 50GB in RAM usage and it's more limited than Xfce. I'm...

I've not travelled, but if I did, I think that I'd need to learn the equivalent of "French Fries" in every language... very important to get the food that you expect on your plate (I've made ...

Re: How do they know?

Just to avoid confusion (and to confirm): Here in the UK, what others (USA etc) call "Potato Chips", we call "Crisps" - and what others call "French Fries" or just "Fries", we call "Chips". So, my "Bag of Crisps" is your "Bag of Chips"? And my "Plate of Chips" is your "Plate of Fries"? ;) (I prefer ...
