  1. [ubuntu] Re: Annoying Browser Requests to Permit Plugins on Each Visited Web Page

    Hi everyone,

    I am no longer seeing those browser requests. I do not know why but they suddenly stopped days after I posted the question here. I do remember something about killing some plugins I...

    Update. I have been playing with the lspci and lsusb commands in the terminal and I also experimented with disconnecting my USB extrnal hub and its three devices. The results of the lsusb command...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    Thanks for your comment. I am studying networking with Linux and learned alot in the past few weeks by creating a hosts file. It has so far been very helpful to my work online and I noticed a vast...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    Here is my latest complete HOSTS file which I name NewHOSTS.txt until I am finally moving it into the hosts file directory. I learned to copy NewHOSTS.txt into my /etc/hosts.txt as a ready backup...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    Thanks for the advice on plugins. I tend to use my footer section for blocking domains and I am happy with that solution. I will try to install a new update which is expanded for more government...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    Before I created my first HOSTS file, I was using the mintNanny domain blocker. I had slower access to the web even then, so I cannot conclude that the domain blocking helped to speed up the...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    I really don't know the difference at this point. All I know is it took long waits for handoffs, linking, and display of web pages I visited. But after creating HOSTS entries to support the places...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    OK, thanks for the advice. All I know is that my computer started displaying the web a lot faster after I added the HOSTS file entries. Even the display was slow after I switched DNS servers. I...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Combo CD-RW & DVD Does Not Recognize CD media

    I still have the same problem. I did notice that my PC will not detect CD media nor floppy disk media when inserted into the drives. So, the problem is now two drives for removable media. I can...

  11. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    I also have a footer.txt file that I concatenate with the header.txt to create the HOSTS file. But it is just a lot of 127.0.0.1 entries for unwanted domains and hosts. I did not see much point in...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    OK I compressed it to the tar.gz as you instructed, but I am concerned about the file size at 22.5 KB. I am not sure if the forum will accept it but I will try to find out now.

  15. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    ok I will try to follow your suggestion now. Thanks !

  16. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    OK, I think I figured out how to give an attachment. But, my HOSTS file is too large for this forum to accept it in one segment. I would have to break it down anyway to stay under 19.5 KB.

  17. [ubuntu] Re: I Learned How to Speed Up My Internet With HOSTS File Entries

    I can attach a HOSTS file? I will try to figure out how to do that
