Re: Install and Configure Steam

In my language fanless means no moving parts.
I am a fanless fan but you make no mention of what you consider to be fanless.
I run a FitPc4 which is fanless an Intel NUC which considers itself fanless but isnt.
Conpulabs are bringing out a new fanless beast in the Autumn.

Re: Get the "F" Out

So we built the Facebook Container extension. It keeps FB out of your business when you're not in their app. Not on FB these days? It works with Instagram, FB Messenger and Workplace, too.

Why do I need that much /boot/efi - I can remember when you had to make do with 250K of memory only, then Windoze cme along!

Inability to Connect to High Speed Broadband.

I have a three year? old HP laptop with an AMD processor. SolydX and Solydk 9 are installed and are reasonably up to date.
