    Reddit in AI content licensing deal with Google February 22, 2024

    That's all public. Unless you block it with robots.txt, Google will index it.

    Why are there no easy ways in Linux to retrieve system information?

    Some stuff, depending on our definitions, has JSON output - like lsblk. (I read a lot of man pages.)

    Do you want a guide to dual (or more) boot without the need for fiddling with bootloaders?

    If you're up for it and able to do so convincingly, you can always share it as an article on my site. It'll get wider exposure AND give me a day off! I will never write content like that because I don't use Windows and I don't dual boot anything. So, it'd be content that would otherwise not exist.

    Touchpad Right-Click, Some Ideas For Linux OS...

    I did a brief search and it comes back to you. Do you mean you have an ASUS device that's running Ubuntu 18.04 (codename Bionic Beaver)? If so, that's a LTS release that lasts for five year. Those five years were up in May of 2023, meaning it is no longer supported. Using an unsupported release...

    Why are there no easy ways in Linux to retrieve system information?

    Quick reminder... Our rules can be distilled to 'civility'. Even when disagreeing, we must be civil.

    Solved linux.org forum mails seems to be delivered with a delay

    I'm not a fan of the sweet white wines. If I'm somewhere that there's no choice, I might have a glass or two. Also, part of my comment was in jest. I seldom drink to excess. Well, to the point of forgetting. I like to still be in control of my actions because I'm still accountable for my...

    Today's article is finally an article that relies on two previous articles...

    I agree! The output is easy to understand. What's not seen in the screenshot is that it flashes red if the storage media is nearing capacity. I tried timing the screenshot a second time and missed it, so I gave up. I probably should have tried another one, so that folks could at least see that...

    When that happens to me, I just blame wine. It's not my fault that (some) wine is delicious!

    Today's article is finally an article that relies on two previous articles...

    This is a subject you should be very familiar with by now. What's the task? Well, we're simply checking to see how full your storage is. That's right, it's yet another article about monitoring your disk usage. I've written at least a half dozen articles, all different, about accomplishing this...

    I will also ask how it is that you're updating, specifically?

    This is an English-only site. You'll need to translate your question to English. While technically I speak Spanish, we do not have the resources to moderate other languages. Thus the official policy is that you must translate your question to English.

    Australia - The Land Down Under

    I like bats. I have bat boxes to attract more bats. There are so many myths about bats that just aren't true. For example, they can see just fine. So saying that someone is blind as a bat isn't a very good analogy.

    Unfortunately, none of his standup is appropriate content on this site. Amusingly, in his earlier years, he was a preacher. Imagine that!

    More Linux Users Very Soon.

    Efficiency is a good reason. Yes, you can perform many of the same tasks on an older computer - but it takes more energy to do so. Modern hardware is much more efficient. I have mains power, but I generate more than I use with solar and wind. Keeping things efficient is a good thing for me. I'd...

    From my understanding, that's the case here. People are saying it impacts newer CPUs but the sources I'm familiar with put them in the mid-2000s range (when they were new CPUs). I commented about such in the original thread. Don't get me wrong. I'd love an influx of new Linux users. I think...

    Today's article is about making a better terminal experience...

    Not as far as I know and, if you did, it'd mean you were storing your password in plain text. If you give zero poops, you can actually use sudo without a password. https://linux-tips.us/how-to-use-sudo-without-a-password/ Full disclosure, I have some systems set up like that. Anyone with...
