    Painting and Sketching

    @Alexzee Have you given any thought to taking some samples to a local art dealer, get an appraisal, and maybe put them on consignment in their store? My wifes' grandfather was an artist and we have worked with a local dealer on selling many of his works. You can see some of his work if you...

    @hacodo75 Thanks Harald, I'll start with getting you able to take screenshots of any area on your screen. In Windows 10 you have a 'Snipping Tool' app. This is what you will use to take screenshots. I am using the two terms 'Snip' and 'Screenshot' interchangeably - they both mean the same...

    @hacodo75 Welcome back Harald, Now, where were we ............HMMM. Seeing that your grandson is going to take over your old cp, the idea I had won't work. Can you refresh me on just where you stand right now with your computers? Thanks a bunch. Old Geezer TC

    Problem installing Linux Mint

    Hi Cap @captain-sensible I think I would do the same as you say. I assume that he has a back up disk for Win 10 - just in case. I'll get my old macbook out and see if I can dual boot with LM 19.3 just to see what happens. I'll get back with my results as soon as I can. Old Geezer TC

    Distro for laptop

    @zwling I personally like LM Mate. Maybe it just seems better to me. It's very stable as I have not anything go wrong since I have been using it. Old Geezer TC

    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    @Granny Sue Hello Granny, Hope I am not intruding too much here, but I just could not resist. I also do a little writing. I found out years ago that no matter where else I might save things, I got in the habit of copying the articles on to a flash drive which I had dedicated to nothing but my...

    Distro for laptop

    @Condobloke I'll second that choice of Linux Mint!!! I have tried about 12-14 different Linux distros and have found that LM is the absolute easiest transition from Windows to Linux - hands down. Perhaps those very familiar with Linux may have forgotten the transition period they went through...

    I'm Back. Just like a bad penny. Mother changed her mind and we ate at home. I have another question Harald, before you hit the sack --- What are your plans for your old laptop with Win 7 on it? OG TC

    Harald, For now, please don't do anything until you have given us all the specs on your old computer. I have a desktop with win 7 on it, so it should not take too long to get Linux installed. OG TC

    Harald, That's great! Give us all the specifications on that old laptop please. Give as much info as possible. I think it will be simpler to change over to Linux from Win 7 than it is from Win 10. With that said; after you get your feet wet doing the old one, perhaps you can then be more...

    I was a flight instructor for about 11 years. During that time I found out that the old saying is true - "When you teach someone, you come to realise that you are learning more about your subject than you are teaching your student!" One other thing is - "You find out just how much you understand...

    @hacodo75 Harald, One more question - do you have an old computer that you could experiment with? Any old computer would work. OG TC
