I am very happy to see LinuxRocks back up and running, 😍 :linuxmint:

Could somebody help me?
I've got some kind of code for McFee truekey a year or two ago, and now it's over,
I want to move awry to some opensource alternative, and create backups.

I found only one way online to export my data, which is going to it on chrome, and somehow export.

I used to have it on my Firefox, but now, I don't, and their site identifies I use Linux, and says it isn't supported (blah)

Please help me get awey with my passwords from this thing :opensource:

Thank you in advance

I found a nice command line FTP client that supports Multi-threaded and Segmented downloads. it's called lftp and works a treat once you get all the commands down. Maybe do a video on using it since you love command line stuff. I think folks could find use for this as Filezilla doesn't do what this does.

How was the new Linux Code Of Conduct approved? Its terms are so vague that they can be used to target almost anybody. Is this an oppression mechanism to silence those developers who make "inconvenient" statements, for instance about Intel backdoors? Oh wait. Intel is a platinum member of Linux Foundation. By the way, Microsoft is a platinum member too.

I have been running Linux Mint 18.3 since it came out and have been very happy with it. I decided to upgrade to 19 (Tara) after trying it out on a laptop. Everything worked out of the box so I am very pleased, as I have been with all Mint releases I have tried so far. I have noticed it uses quite a bit of memory, 1gb on start up. This doesn't bother me at all, I like Cinnamon. There are other Mint desktop options for those that want a lighter running system.

A great use of my Raspberry Pi 3
a No Track Pi from QuidsUp
quidsup.net/notrack/

It works sort of like the PiHole but I like it better, you get a very nice browser based interface and its lists are updated regularly.

@TommyO Yes! I use it daily and I'm in the process of converting my friends and family.

Another interesting video from @ChrisWere This one about Linux Packaging types AppImage, Snaps and Flatpacks. I am using both Snaps and AppImages on my system for a while now and find them to be very useful. youtube.com/watch?v=ROyRtqKBzD

Today, I decided to try out a fun project from Quidsup's channel.
I used a RasPi 3 to make a NoTrack DNS server. It is working really well so far at blocking ads and known malware sites. I was amazed how easy it was to set up as he has step by step directions on his channel.

I just finished the upgrade to Mint 18.3 so far everything is working well (knocks on wood) I am leaving the Kernel alone for now since it seems to be stable with 4.10.

I saw an interesting video about how you can output a weather report to the terminal using curl wttr.in it's pretty neat and you can optionally do curl wttr.in/~[city+county] if you want to check the three day forecast for someplace other than your location based on IP. linuxrocks.online/media/Ly2RUC

🍍 πŸ• is yummy, and even better when you place your Dominoes order with a Linux powered device :D

Today I finished the setup and install of Nextcloud on the Raspberry Pi3 as well as trying out Ubuntu Mate on another RasPi to play around with. Mate is pretty slow on the Pi3 but I expected that, still a lot of fun to try it out.

I've been hunting around for a good tutorial on setting up nextcloud on a raspberry pi 3. I've tried a couple of the ones I found but it always fails. Does anyone have a link to a good/working tutorial? Thanks

I’m new around here - part of the @ChrisWere wave. I’ve been a GNU/Linux convert for a little over 2 years now and have never looked back. Ubuntu MATE is my daily driver, but I have loads of different distros floating around on different machines - variety is the spice of life.
