    I did an update. Haven't fresh installed for about a year now... but its coming. Once we buy a house here in Virginia I will replacing all of these old gaming PCs. It's about time!
    My oldest computer was built in 2010!!!
    It needs all new gear and a fresh install of Mint for sure!

    My smallest Shuttle PC connected to our kitchen TV still support modern versions of Mint. I bought it back in 2018. Crazy huh?

    I love Linux!

    I actually applied for a Linux support position at Canoncial, but I probably won't get it because I'm over experienced... in Windows that is... not Linux in an enterprise environment.

    Wow!
    I have so many computers, a fresh install is necessary on at least one of them every year or two. Depends on how much it is used.

    Ever since I moved, I have two desktops just sitting and rotting. But those will go to Goodwill once I build new desktops.
    Can't wait!

    This does look interesting!
    Don't sell yourself short. You may be just what they are looking for.

    If not think about taking another job with them to get you in the door.

    As always I'll be praying for a good outcome for you and yours.

    Shoot, after applying to 200 jobs in the last year and a half, i've got nothing but doubt and selling myself short.
    There must be hundreds of thousands of techs applying for Work-at-home jobs cause I just can't get one.
    Of course on the East Coast.

    I think it fair to say that we've all been there.
    But with A I coming on line the future is perhaps more unknown than in the past.Or maybe it just seems that way

    China going though hell and nobody knows what to do...but revolution seems possible.
    i wish I had worth while advice to offer.
    In Gods hand
