Admin. Rob:

You may regret asking this question.(?) OK, for a few years now, I've been having one failure after another trying to get a LinuxMint O.S. (a "full" install) to perform properly via a 2.0/3.0 pendrive. I experience severe lag and freezes and, sometimes, complete "crashes". I'd love to have you direct one of your videos to this issue. If you choose to do so, PLEASE...contact me to let me know. Again understand, I'm referring to a "full" install as opposed to running "live".

I want to learn how to command the following:
When I dock my laptop;
files x,y,z are synchronized/ backed up;
from local drives c,d,e,
to storage drive f that resides in dock

Thinkpad X220 with Ultrabase3
c:/mSata 250GB ssd
d:/sataIII 250GB ssd
e:/SDXC 64GB
f:/hdd 320GB
os Mint 19.1xfce

I think after I wrap my head around how to do that, I should also be able to have pictures on my phone sync with file in my laptop when the usb cable is hooked up

That is what I want to learn.

Some of this I know how to do, some I don't. Just ideas for you.
how to setup a DNS server
how to setup a print server
how to setup an NFS server
basic bash scripting
setting up Samba
security in Linux, what settings changes you should make on a new Linux computer (i.e. change SSH port).
how to troubleshoot issues, where to look for logs and what to look for
what to do when you make a video driver change and now have no gui (this one throws me). I used to be able to fix it when I could go into Xorg.conf but that file doesn't exist anymore :(
