  1. That's pretty slick. I haven't used vi, vim or gvim much so I always have to look up the function keys......
  2. You say they have a hard time turning it off.... I just use an alias for halt and issue that command from xterm and it saves me from having to click on tons of BS just to turn things off...alias halt="sudo shutdown -h now" I use zsh instead of bash, so in my alias I have something in there for "halt". So, keeping an xterm open I just type "halt"....no clicking on tons of stuff just to shut things down.
  3. I bet you'd like these too. HP is like A1.....goes with everything.
  4. I tried this last year but I sort of drop it until now. Using Remote.It I can log remotely into the Raspberry Pi I have set up over my folks for spotting planes using Flight Aware for Pi. But can I use it remotely as a music server? It would be cool if that was possible....
  5. Belated birthday wishes to everyone I missed.....I bought one present so y'all are going to have to do good sharing.... what_a_swell_gift!
  6. not sure why I had multiple posts.... mod's can delete
  7. This is what it looks like under my real desktop... for_real
  8. Reminds me about the time when I learned about gapping the points on my Valiant with a matchbook. Man, I'm a mechanic now, so I thought...lol. A few years later I bought my first Ford Escort (used, of course).....One day, I had a problem starting it so I put my mechanics hat on and got my matchbook out and popped the distributor cap and.....NO POINTS! Same thing will happen with WIFI. Now that I'm a wifi guru, next month they'll change it to something else. lol
  9. With all the wireless gadgets I have you'd think I would have figured this out a long time ago! :'(
  10. Holy smoke! To show how ignorant I am, I just learned the meaning "wifi". I thought "wifi" was connecting your computer wirelessly to the internet...well, that's true but it also means connecting wireless devices on a network. Geeze....
  11. Yep, it works. So this is better then having to plug in the extra cable.
  12. Success!!! But, I did something different. https://www.raspberr...ccess-point.md Now I don't even need to use the ethernet cable......but let me double check and verify this.
  13. OK, now to focus on the original mystery.....attaching Pi to lappy with an ethernet cable and ssh'ing to it without wifi. Will be trying the suggestions used in the link you shared, SB.
  14. Just looked and I believe I found the problem. I won't know if it's solved until the next visit. Connecting to the internet from my lappy I use wicd-curses. It only shows what's in site now. I'm sure there's a file that shows connections I use but for now I just used "nm-connection-editor". In plain site I saw "Public Library Internet 2.4GHz" and the other servers I connect to. The wpa-supplicant.conf file on Pi I had the ssid for the library as "Public Library Internet".
