  1. [SOLVED] Re: BUYER'S REMORSE - Bought A Slow Laptop for Front End Web Dev

    Clearly, you know your stuff, so there's no avoiding the fact that your assumptions are accurate… you picked too light a box for your needs.

    There's no magic bullet, but the following might help...

    [SOLVED] Re: Google Critical Security Alert

    You know that it's coming from your old machine, so there's limited exposure to your Google account. Since it is also localized in this way, you may wish to consider running some sort of packet...

    Re: files in .gnupg

    gnupg is the Gnome implementation of pgp. It is a very good security feature if used properly and is associated with GPG2. Those files are harmless and in fact necessary for GPG2 to function...

    Who does one cater to? The corporate/SOHO/general user who wants reliability and stability, or the gamer/multimedia user who wants minimal lag and low-latency response?

    [SOLVED] Re: Do I have sata 2 or sata 3

    Yep… that is what it says. You have read it properly.

    If it's any consolation, a SATA 3 disk is not entirely wasted on a SATA 2 bus because it is capable of operating at the bus limit. If you...
  10. Re: Exactly what does enabling UFW change to how Ubuntu 19.04 handles network connect

    Might I add my belated two bits?

    [SOLVED] Re: Do I have sata 2 or sata 3

    [SOLVED] Re: Do I have sata 2 or sata 3

    Your drive is operating at half-capacity. dmesg is telling you that the HW system thinks it's a 3 Gbps link. Therefore, it doesn't matter what the system reports for your SSD itself: your bus is only...
