Dill wine?  I bet it IS quirky.  I sure as hell wouldn't drink it. ;D

Stock up.

I’m in Lake Tahoe for a week of skiing. They have had about 6 feet of snow in the last week. Last night it got down to 11F. I want my blankie.

LOL -  ;D
Temps will be in the mid 20's today for me. It's warmed up.
Do you have a decent pair of ski goggles ?   Snow blindness is a Bee-otch.  ;)
I hope you're having a blast. It sounds like fun.
Tuck-N-Go.  :D

Nice pic.
At first I thought there was a body impression in the snow where you put it in the tulies, then I zoomed in.  :)
The snow looks a little heavy / wet.
You need some fresh, dry powder.    ;)

Northstar got 79” in the last week. Lots of powder on the slopes. Trouble is I learned to ski in Vermont and upstate NY when I was stationed at Plattsburgh. 40 years later and I still have trouble skiing in deep snow. Give me ice and I can go down any run. Make it powder and I have to stick to blues and groomed blacks. I got stuck in the woods one time in the back bowl at Vail and it took me three hours to get down. Brutal. Snow was chest deep.

I do have good goggles. With about 6 different colors of lenses.

@juan
Time for me to call it a day big guy.
I'm installing and setting up a program to test it out to see if it's comparable to QB.
Oh, you didn't get a 'No Disk Space Left' error on the Doze box you were running QB on, did you ?
This is very common - it's a bug in QB that's been there damn near 20 years or better.
QB really is nothing more than a polished turd AFAIC, but, if you want to use it, i'll help you.

Let me get this alt installed, set up, and tested. I'll probably write up a tutorial w/ screenshots and a walk-though for installing it.
I'm putting it on a Deb system, so (you did say you're on Mint, right ? ) this should be no problem for you to set it up on your box.

We should move this over to the Linux thread though, so I'll post my walk-through over there.  ;)

I have a W10 query. This may be one for @wr250 perhaps. I really hate the way 10 was forced and even more angry that I cannot control updates as on previous OS's. Question is how does W10 update even when I have the ethernet cable unplugged and my system wifi set to off? I really should revert back to 7 :-\

I have a second laptop that I keep in the basement of my rental house so it's sometimes unplugged and down for weeks on end so of course it doesn't update until I fire it back up, but that is obvious.

it probably turns the wifi on and updates.
the solution is to set the wifi connection to "metered" , so windows wont update using that ("except whats needed to keep windows running smoothly") .
the wired connection can be set that way as well, i use winaero tweaker to do so.
the other option is to disable WU in  services.msc . you will need to manually update by turning it back on , when finished disable it again.

W10 seems to have a personal grudge against my VPN.    New thing; when I get the update notifications they inform me that "Windows is a service" etc"  Think I'd prefer 98 SE over 10.
