One of the few "new" sources of Art and Knapp material is not working today. I get firefox saying "cannot connect" and the "is it down site" says "site is down for everyone." I hope iHateMedia, Inc hasn't gotten to him or something worse. Too bad.
"SITe" back up! Great news.
ps: Logan, I will send the "tube" pics. I forgot the boxes are in a garage behind a bunch of junk and been busy. (And avoiding wading/organizing that garage in the 103 heat and so much crap I've gotten due to various people's moves and stuff I "had" to have at estate sales etc. Why, for example, did I need to buy an ancient wolf/coyote trap except I thought it might make good decor for a friend's bar and- who wouldn't at a price of a buck!)  ;)

They play this commercial so often on the free antenna channels, but I have to laugh. Maybe it works? Maybe it doesn't? But using some USB from some outfit that advertises on free tv channels? No thanks. And also I've always wondered why the best (non-US) based virus and ransom-wares also come from countries that also put out the supposedly-best rated anti-stuff software like Kaspersky etc? (Though I seem to recall there was a real ransom situation once with one of his family?) And whatever happened to that McAfee app for smartphones and stuff he was talking about? He claims, basically, all smart phones, especially Androids are infected.

Sounds like a really good transitional distro if you're coming from Doze. NVIDIA support  built in and a rolling release. 64-bit only. Lots of comments on it's stability. https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=solus
full packagelist  https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=solus&pkglist=true&version=2017.04.18.0#pkglist

Let us know how you like it. It seems to be under heavy development with constant upgrades. Looks to be pretty popular.   :)

well i didnt think skype could blow anymore than it did, but $micro$haft found a way.
there appears to be no way to adjust, set, control, or do anything else with audio in version 5.3 for linux. i have 3 sound cards in my machine, and skype picked one that i do not want to use.since all the guides i found say "select edit (or tools) then preferences" , or "choose the options button then audio (or similar)" and i have none of those available. another guide said to click the options button in the lower l/h corner. i dont have that either.
so skype is now relegated to a IM program, as i cant seem to get a mic to work with it. changing things around would involve alot of work with just about every other program that uses audio on this box. i wont do that for 1 program.
thanks $micro$oft.

If I remember rightly, actual tracking occurs only while the plane is in range of an ADS-B station and then these aircraft tracking websites have a few minutes delay on top.
So... you can track MV's perilous voyage across the ocean in semi real time.
