New Phone - LG V40

I needed a new phone as the battery on my Droid Turbo 2 was holding a charge like I carry a tune, i.e. barely.

After 4 or 5 generations of Motorola phones, I started looking at the LG G7 One,  announced back in August. As part of Google's Android One program, it looked like a decent buy until it was reported that it was exclusive to Canadian markets.

By then, I had done a bit of reading on some LG hardware, and the hype train for the V40 was ramping up. Five cameras, awesome sound, yada, yada, yada. The features that grabbed my attention were the headphone jack, the microSD card slot, and the 32-bit Quad DAC. I have Gigs and Gigs of FLAC tunes ready to load onto this phone.

I tried to talk myself out of this phone a few times mainly because of the price ($980 @ Verizon). The only thing that made it palatable was the pre-order deal from LG - $200 off the price, a 256GB microSD card (Sandisk, I think) and a DJI OSMO Mobile 2 gimbal thingy that may be destined for eBay. Oh yeah, and a $100 trade in for the aforementioned Droid Turbo 2, which brought it down to $680 over 24 months. Still not cheap, but a bit easier to swallow.

First impressions are positive so far. I was a bit anxious because I'm usually not a "bleeding edge" guy when it comes to tech, and it was the first time I ever pre-ordered a phone. Fortunately, there have been no issues to date. This sucker sounds fantastic, whether it's through the headphone jack or the speakers. Since my DT2 was customized with the Nova Prime, I loaded it up on the V40 almost right away. Any bloatware was easy to either uninstall or disable.

All the cameras are a bit intimidating, but I really haven't had a chance to fiddle with them yet. The screen is beautiful, the phone fits in my hand nicely, and after 4 full days on using the V40, I'm a happy camper for now.

Request for v2 Porteus ISO

19 Oct 2018

Posted by zlim in Bruno's All Things Linux
I use this to remove Windows files when other programs (MoveOnBoot, WhoLockMe, Unlocker and a few others) refuse to destroy a file. I prefer v2 32 bit because it is small and easy to use for my purpose.

I did have the ISO up on my googledrive but removed it because I thought I had it archived.

I'm looking for it to share with someone and now can't find it.

All the download links for v 2 go nowhere. It has been removed from the places I've tried.
