It all went down hill (literally) when fall damage was introduced.

I have been using linux off and on since I first installed Slackware from floppy. Mint is generally what I go to when I just want to have a working desktop and not dick around with it too much.

Will Pierre condemn it? Or should we expect him in a picture with these people next week?

I know which I would bet my loonies on.

the DNC is going to cause it

It is not the fault of the DNC that the Republicans are full fascist. I wish there were a more compelling candidate that Biden but put the blame where it belongs. Squarely on the shoulders of the GOP and their voters.

Moms for Liberty Completely Collapses in Former Strongholds (newrepublic.com)

Moms for Liberty experienced a meteoric rise at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, as local chapters sprang up to push back against coronavirus restrictions in schools. The organization soon expanded to pushing book bans and opposing discussion of LGBTQ issues and race and diversity in classrooms, prompting the Southern Poverty...

being aware that children were much less at risk from Covid than older people

That was not really the problem though. Those kids interacting in small classrooms would undo all the work of controlling the spread of the disease. They infect each other and then carry it back home to more vulnerable people. Or to the teachers, administrators and staff members working at the schools.

The amount of abuse he has put up with is astounding. All for promoting his research and advocating for action to avert catastrophe. I honestly do no know how he maintains his patience or motivation in the face of it all.

I got to meet Dr Mann in 2012 at a small speaking engagement he did promoting his book “The Climate Wars”. He was incredibly friendly and penned a note to my children encouraging them to get into science. A year or so later I emailed him an anecdote about me explaining climate change and climate denial to my then 7yr old daughter. “Those people are crazy” were her exact words. I never really expected him read it let alone respond but he did. No real point to this story other than to relay that he is a real and sincere person who does not deserve the hate he gets from the crazies.

Mint dumped Snaps in favour of Flatpack. Even then they are clearly labeled as such in the Software Manager. If both Flatpack and Deb are available for the package you can choose which to install.

my mistake. I read your first sentence to mean “Mint followed Ubuntu and would Rhino do the same” rather than “Would Rhino follow Mints lead”.

Not a bad singer either. I have a copy of his album somewhere and a couple of the songs are actually pretty good. Others are … weird.

I frequently do this to try out different DEs. My only issue with it is that if the DE has its own version of some package like a music player I end up with a cluttered menu with all version from all installed DEs. Would be nice if there were an easy way to limit each DE to its app list by default.

Seriously. After using Proton Free for over a year I moved to SurfShark. No complaints except for the dumb name. They are cheap, effective, and fast enough.

I am genuinely curious what “more with their machines” actions you found Mint to be lacking in?

Needs more ? because the parent comment is truly baffling.

The Cult of AI: How one writer's trip to an annual tech conference left him with a sinking feeling about the future (www.rollingstone.com)

From the (middle of the) story: The reason CES was so packed with random “AI”-branded products was that sticking those two letters to a new company is seen as something of a talisman, a ritual to bring back the (VC) rainy season.

Nonsense. I ran NVidia for years before I upgraded to to a newish AMD card. Not perfect but it absolutely works even for gaming as my many many hours of KSP can attest.

Then your take is equivalent to: “it does not work for me so it is shite.”

Utterly devoid of meaning, vague and useless.

Celebrity contractor Mike Holmes 'approved' this development. Now some of its homes have been demolished (www.cbc.ca)

In its ongoing investigation of Terrace Wood, a housing development endorsed by Mike Holmes, CBC recently learned that consumer watchdog Tarion condemned three of the houses. CBC also uncovered documents showing Mike Holmes not only promoted the project, but also a company he's associated with loaned money to the builder.

Seems like he allowed them to put his face on everything based on money and promises. He and his company took the checks but did not follow through and make sure that a quality job was done. Saying that none of the buyers payed for his inspection is a cop-out. He became the thing he railed against for years and it will do irreparable damage to his brand.

Sad but he can only blame himself.
