    Why on earth would you want to do that if you don't have to?

    Well, I suppose it's a bit like… ](*,) ….feels so good when you stop. :-P

    [ubuntu] Re: Basic Requirements

    I agree with all of the above. If you don't need to conform to GAAP, then neither QuickBooks nor GnuCash are necessary. I would definitely not recommend either for consumer use. They are both...

    Please do not duplicate post. It confuses those trying to help and dilutes community effort. Therefore, threads merged.

    [ubuntu] Re: Basic Requirements

    Hi ajgreeny! ):P

    kMyMoney is a lot easier to use and, frankly, a lot easier on the eyes than GnuCash. People looking for an alternative to Quicken usually find apps like kMyMoney to be the way to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Basic Requirements

    I run XP on Virtualbox in an old laptop with total 4GB of RAM, so it is doable. Rather slow, so don't expect good performance, but it doesn't crash either, so it's workable, but not enjoyable.

    Congrats on finding the answer through your own perseverance and initiative. Also, many thanks for posting back your solution. It may help someone else in similar straits. =d>

  8. [ubuntu] Re: New User: failed trying to create a bootable flash drive on Windows XP

    An admirable sentiment. Most new users throw up their hands with extreme frustration when they run into problems as difficult as yours. Kudos to your good cheer and tenacity.

  9. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    Brave is sufficient on its own. It does not need further adblocking extensions. In fact, extensions are also something to carefully weigh, although stuff like NoScript, Ghostery and similar reputable...
  10. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    Well, don't go that far. Our privacy is still worth the good fight, and there are also good people fighting on our behalf. From the same article:
    My intent was not to discourage you but to point...
  11. Re: What are you folks doing for self-hosted storage? Recommendations wanted.

    That's an interesting and valuable take on things. I've gone the opposite route, at least in this one regard: I've found that the individual pieces give me a fineness of control that I missed using...

  13. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    Current versions of DD-WRT have VLAN tagging. However, I don't purpose to go down that rabbit hole. I'm considering just segmenting one physical port off of the router and attaching my Nextcloud...
  14. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    I considered it. But I eventually want to offer its use to Mrs DH and the kids. Even selected friends if I can convince myself that it is resilient, can be made reliable and is not too burdensome on...
  15. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    This is the usual concern. I can't say it is without substance, hence the VPN double layer.

    …But, as said, for reasons other than privacy. I may as well fully digress from OP's topic.

    I try to...

    Re: Need Procedure for Downgrading Kernel

    May as well get it off my chest… I HATE Software Updater. It's ruined a few installs on me. If one knows how to apt-mark hold a package, then one can avoid the worst of its damage, but then, if one...
  17. [ubuntu_budgie] Re: Configured Dns over TLS ..... Is this good for privacy?

    No, I rely on my router almost entirely to provide those services. I am mildly curious about PfSense and now OPNsense (since TheFu mentioned it above), but to be dead honest, it's yet another "thing"...

    Re: Need Procedure for Downgrading Kernel

    Welcome to the forums, jasonterando.

    You need to install more than linux-image. You also need headers and modules.

    Better to use:
    sudo apt install linux-generic…which is a metapackage that...
  20. [lubuntu] Re: The 3min and 26sec of Terror: (L)ubuntu 20.04 Boot Time

    On second thought, the above is not really fair. I don't install OSes the same way most people do. I use a CLI image and add only what I need. This gives me a very lean system without the cruft that...
  21. [lubuntu] Re: The 3min and 26sec of Terror: (L)ubuntu 20.04 Boot Time

    Actually, 400 MB is not really "excessive". Mine was 1.7 GB before I took a weed‑whacker to it and, even bloated, it did not appreciably impact my boot times because I use a SSD. Please note that my...
  22. Re: What are you folks doing for self-hosted storage? Recommendations wanted.

    It's not even a protocol. It's a platform, like Google Drive and One Drive and whatever Apple calls theirs. Too abstracted from fundamentals to be a protocol.

  23. [ubuntu] Re: Access to HDDs in a server if the OS HDD is replaced with a later OS install ?

    I recently purchased a WD "Red" and had to pick through the arcanery—one is tempted to say "chicanery"—of their whole model numbering scheme. At least the new naming scheme brings clarity to their...

    This won't help a lot, but every little bit adds up:

    In addition to all of the comments above (I especially agree with the speed of SSD vs old HDD), note that the longest startup service in your...

    Re: Hard Drive Self Monitoring

    In fairness, smartctl output can be hard to parse. Even successfully parsed, it can be hard to understand.
