  • My parents went to the eye doctor earlier, only to find out my mom retina's starting to detach, and my dad is in an early stage of getting glaucoma. While the doctor is going to monitor their conditions closely, and perform surgery on my mom if necessary, I'm concerned about how their conditions will affect how they live, especially since they're elderly and in relatively poor health.
    Because my desktop has now been on the fritz since the other day, my laptop almost suffered the same fate, but thankfully I somehow dodged a bullet with that

    What happened to them?

    I was trying to downgrade to Mint 19.3, thinking that would make Terminal work better (because I kept encountering problems with it). After I managed to do that, I encountered a glitch, and decided to restart the desktop. Ever since then, it's been stuck in grub rescue. Another forum user told me to reinstall Mint 21, but I told him I was going to install an Android desktop variant instead.
    After sleeping on it last night, I also thought about running an Android desktop variant on my current desktop, since I was going to do that with my new one anyway. Unfortunately, Bliss OS only works with newer hardware, so I'll either go with Prime or Phoenix for the time being, or run them on my new desktop as well if they end up working great.
    After dealing with frequent troubleshooting (which unfortunately has caused more problems than solutions), I originally decided to go back to 19.3 to make things more easier for myself. However, I recently encountered issues when trying to get that working properly. Now I'm contemplating going back to Windows completely, at least until my new computer is built and running something other than Windows or Linux.

    Consider Installing Linux Mint 20.1

    Clean install.....not an upgrade.

    Somehow my desktop got stuck in grub rescue and won't boot up properly. After Tolkem told me to reinstall Mint, I decided I would install PrimeOS instead. I'm in the process of doing that now.
    I'm going to my friend's house later to play video games, while purposely being dressed as the Angry Video Game Nerd. He's going to hear me swearing up a storm. If the game sucks, I'll pretend to crap on it.
    My parents and I got Culvers for dinner tonight. While I waiting in line at the drive-up, I was thinking back to that Nickelodeon movie Good Burger. Too bad I didn't mention that to the staff, because most of them were around my age and would've gotten the reference.
    I'm upgrading Mint from 19.3 to 20, and then again to 20.1. I'm almost done, but the process makes a graveyard look like a marathon race.

    I've been contemplating doing this for a while now. My 19.3 Cinnamon on my desktop machine is running perfectly though. I think I will either back-up my data and then 'nuke&pave' or perhaps switch to a distro with a good implementation of KDE. I have a brand new 500GB SSD eager to start pulling the duty! :)
