      Ermm nothing really I was posting to show that this pandemic is nowhere near as bad as the Spanish Flu one.😎      Snake oil probably does not sell as well today I'll agree. However folk are still as thick as planks and open to manipulation by a smooth talking charlatan. Probably more so, in fact I'll say even more so. You only have to look at what Facebook users believe in to see that. 😂

      For anyone with a nvme drive here are some neat links regarding the nvme-cli tool.  As an early adopter I bought a Samsung SP591 which was the first nvme Samsung brought out. This was an OME product as they were using it as a test drive to refine firmware and controllers until they brought a main line product to market. So a lot of the toole in the nvme-cli do not work for me. The main ones do though and this is one of the very useful ones. Put brain in gear befor pressing enter15:48:03-->Thu Jun 04-->~ -->sudo nvme smart-log /dev/nvme0 | grep "^temperature" temperature : 31 C So my nvme is not overheating, thats cool 😂   Open Source NVMe™ Management Utility – NVMe Command Line Interface (NVMe-CLI)   https://www.mankier.com/package/nvme-cli   A Quick Tour of NVM Express (NVMe)(SP591)   NVME Tip's and Tricks Intel   😎

      I agree. I always suggest LinuxMint or Fedora to new users.

      Hard to take serious when you are sourcing Mercal who is both a fraud and nutjob. He is as bad as Alex Jones. This is from https://sciencebasedmedicine.org (2009):    9 Reasons to Completely Ignore Joseph Mercola   It's not just their opinion, most of their sources are from the CDC and the FDA who point out that he has been a fraudulent in the past.
