  5. Yes, I updated all four computers for ESR through the older version. I don't think this was possible in the past.
  6. Last week
  7. When I checked for ESR updates earlier, nothing was available. However, when checking again, it was offered the update to version 78.3.

    Still Worth It After All These Years

    It wasn't total screen time. Just pointing out that the router could handle that many connections.
  9. Thanks, Corrine. I know this is about the time of year when I have to install a new version of ESR. I suspect it will be a radical change. The latest FF for android is a mess, I gave it a 1 star rating at googleplay and I've switched to Vivaldi because they've removed tabs!

    Still Worth It After All These Years

    Yes, I read that and thought the idea of an in person visit is to talk to each other. Fortunately when I used to be able to have lunch out with friends and former coworkers, none of us have phones out. We sit and talk and find out what is happening in each of our lives. Once in awhile, a picture or two on a phone is shared but that's it.
  11. Mozilla sent Firefox Version 81.0 to the release channel today. The update includes ten security updates of which four (4) are rated moderate high and three (3) are rated moderate. At the time of this posting, there is no update for Firefox ESR Version 68.12 and based on the Rapid Release Calendar, it appears it may have reached EOL and the current ESR Version is 78.3, available from here. Update: To get the update now, select "Help" from the Firefox menu, then pick "About Firefox." Mac users need to select "About Firefox" from the Firefox menu. If you do not use the English language version, Fully Localized Versions are available for download. Security Updates Release Notes

    Still Worth It After All These Years

    You need to have a serious chat with your daughter and family about "outdoors" and "exercise".

  14. Thanks Pete. That looks interesting. I've never seen that. I'll take a picture of our local pharmacy's bottles. (We can't use them any more because now we have to use CVS). The "child-proof" is easy to open with a lever. I just checked and I can also turn that cap upside down and it simply screws on. All these years and we never knew! I'm also posting a picture of a bottle I saved because it was easy to see and open. I put my mom's pills in that.

    Breaking the 10-Year Window

    Apparently my youngest granddaughter has won the battle over the old Dell desktop. She likes having lots of table space, a big screen for viewing, and decent streaming for Google Meet.

    Still Worth It After All These Years

    My daughter and her family came over yrsterday. They brought 2 laptops, 2 phones, an iPad, and a portable game console. My wife had her Samsung Galaxy pad connected, and the kids also were streaming YouTube on the Roku box. This was in addition to the usual desktop wired PC and 2 phones we have connected. The router handled everything flawlessly.

    GNU nano Open-Source Text Editor

    I use nano for any text editing that requires root access. sudo nano something, in my case. For other text editing I like Geany. I've avoided vi for the most part. nano is perfect for the simple stuff I do with it; I haven't bothered to learn all that much about it, but there's always man nano. Still at version 3.2-3 in Debian Stable. Arch now has nano 5.2-1.
  18. I don't recall exactly when they started using them, but it was well after 2012. before that, I would save a non-childproof top for each commonly used bottle size in case they forgot. Bottle from local pharmacy on left, Mail Order on right, Child Proof Not child proof
  19. Yes!! "O.R.A.C.L.E - One Rich A**hole Called Larry Ellison"
  20. Pete, post a shot of the reversible cap. Those are probably new since 2012, the year my Mom moved to assisted living. I really didn't have to worry then because I delivered her meds to them and they administered her drugs. (Her plan changed from mail order to CVS pharmacies, so I picked up her meds.)

    Hello, In some cases, older models of routers may still be supported by third-party firmware like DD-WRT, which may give you an opportunity to continue to use them in a secure fashion, albeit slower than current hardware. I typically keep the previous router around as a spare. It is a good idea to load the latest available firmware onto it and reset it to factory defaults before putting it into storage, just in case you end up giving it to someone else to use. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
  23. What? Your stores still give away those thin plastic bags? They were banned here from November last year. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11-01/victorian-plastic-bag-ban-explained/11658360 Now stores encourage you to bring your own bag, and supermarkets will sell you a thicker reusable bag usually for 15c or a heavier almost indestructible bag for a couple of bucks. I used to reuse them as liners for my kitchen bin but have to buy them now, less than $2 for 6 months worth. There are definitely less disposable ones floating around the streets now.

    These routers are ones I've kept in case somebody would need one. I've had them for years and nobody has expressed a need. It's different in Canada where the two major ISPs rent out a gateway and don't allow you to buy your own modem. Most folks here just make use of the gateway. These routers are mostly G protocol and are of little use to anyone. The recycler can decide whether they want to resell them but I doubt they will.
  25. So, they still wind up in land fills? I don't have a cat but I can still throw them in the garbage. Which reminds me, we now have to preserve easily bio-degradable "doggie poop" in plastic bags so that is last forever.
