I always make of use Linux Mint instead. It has a lot of needed
programs already installed while on Ubunti you need
to install and these are gone next time time you boot up
if you do Frugal iso-booting which is the fast and easy method for
some of us perennial noobs.

Back in puppy land Very Happy
Been using Cruchbang for the last several months, it's a great distro but its taxing my old laptop and its failing hard drive a little to much - so back in puppy land with an old favourite, dpup exprimo! Cool

Welcome back Stu as you've been missed! I was wondering where that prolific contributor to Puppy had gone... and now I know! Very Happy ( Honestly! I never think to send private messages to people asking them where they are or if they're okie, etc. -sigh!- )

Again Stu, welcome back. Good to have you home from walkabout. Wink

Cheers/Amicalement,

Hi Nooby,
Hope you are keeping strong? I have been using Crunchbang these last few months - not sure if you can frugal install it but certainly worth a try as it is a nice distro Wink

Thank you very much Fossil and nooby... but I haven't "gone" anywhere at all. Wink I'm here nearly every day. I simply read in the background these days as much of this programming stuff is way far over my head, unfortunately. Crying or Very sad

C'est la vie...

But thanks again for the notice as it was very much appreciated! Smile

Cheers/Amicalement!

One of these days I am going to install some linux distro on my netbook as a place to store files from my desktop.

BTW, Does anybody know how i can protect myself from my netbook's webcam.

bark_bark_bark,
The quick and easy, and a sure, way to protect yourself from being on-camera on a built-in web-cam is to pull off one of the stickers on the palm-rest of the keyboard and re-stick it over the web-cam lens. This leaves the computer stock and the cam available for occasional use, and remote monitors get only no picture, not an "equipment malfunction/disabled" notice. An alternative is to pull the back off the display (on most e-books the backs snap on, no screws) and rip out the cam (and mic, if you also don't want to be sound-recorded by the NSA or any equivalent)and throw away. These methods are positive, sure ways to stop cam-snoop. Note that everything else you do with your PC can still possibly be remotely recorded. You should look inside and remove any pci devices you don't recognize and need, and disable pci slots and all remote access options, in BIOS. Manufacturers and sellers sometimes add things. Even then you can't be sure, especially with a PXE BIOS, which is factory built to facilitate remote operation of your computer. You should also avoid all woof-built puppies 571 and later, which are malware, for having remote access, not only remote monitoring, which at least some 4- and all 5-series puppies appear to have had built in. Nowadays it is best to always assume that any PC that connects to the web is insecure and probably monitorable, if notbeing monitored, especially while it is connected to the web, and if its wireless cannot be turned off by hardware switch or removal, when it starts up (when it may connect and upload stored metadata, keystrokes, browser history [even if you deleted your own] etc.).
