  1. Outstanding, Black Dog. Simply gorgeous and I love the way you positioned the switch and pots. That was very creative.
  2. Trisquel Linux looks way better than what I was working with. I'm going to look into it more because I have spare time now and I'm not a fan of Windows, either. Here's a short YT video showing some of its features: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMJDySBAtss
  3. Really nice but one problem... no $$$. I'd be living under a bridge too.
  4. As a technician, what do you think of Linux? About 15 years ago, I set up a dual boot system - Windows/Linux. That was in the days of Red Hat and I didn't have the spare time to devote to really learning it. I've heard that Linux has become much more user friendly with a GUI. What do you think?
  5. Very nice! I bought one about 6 months ago and found it to be superb. I love the pickups and the quality is excellent. I think the Players are one of the best guitars you can buy for the money. I did a few minor mods to mine... I put in a new bridge that has a larger block, stainless steel saddles and a push in trem arm... Locking tuners... A string tree from an American Standard just for looks (you know, no bent steel saddles-no bent steel string tree) Schaller strap locks...
  6. Thanks for the VLC Media Player tip, Tekboy. It's a very nice free program although, if I keep using it, I'll make a donation. I use FastStone and agree, it's also good.
  7. This is from an article written in 2015: "Microsoft is sick of you not upgrading, and has a solution: Windows 10 will be the final “version” of Windows. Ever. This is called Windows As A Service, and it’s a big deal. To understand what it means, think of Gmail or Facebook: longtime users know these services have changed over the years, but there aren’t “versions” of them. There’s no Facebook XP, or Gmail 7 – there’s just Facebook, and Gmail, both of which change over time. Windows, apparently, is going to be like that. Microsoft’s Terry Myers explains: “And just like any Internet service, the idea of asking ‘What version are you on?’ will cease to make sense.“" Here's the link to the article: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/windows-10-last-version-windows-ever/ I did not know that Win10 will be the last version of Windows.
  8. That was fantastic. Thanks for posting.
  9. My best friend's father was in the second wave on Omaha Beach. I met the man many, many times but he never spoke of it. I can't imagine what it was like. They were real heroes.
