  1. I hope this is the latest….I'm still not proficient with Linux…but, watching these help. Now, you seem to be hanging onto my Nintendo box…I know I was nice and did the Patreon thing, do you think you could please get my Nintendo back to me? I was trying to use a PS4 with the latest Black Ops with those Zombie folks…but every time I parachuted out of the airplane, I went "splat" and filled my display with red…so, I tried Farm Simulator…well, I can hop on a tractor…hook up the implement and then drive around..beyond that, who knows. I need to get back to Mario…even that was a bit too challenging but, I have to strain I guess. So, could you please send me the Nintendo?

  2. I use "du -sch" which is very handy command. It will list out everything in the directory, individual size in human readable format, and get a final total size of everything.

    "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get upgrade". It will usually list a line suggesting to "sudo apt-get autoremove". After you run "sudo apt-get autoremove" you should restart shortly after so everything gets flushed out during the reboot. Repeat the process of "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get upgrade". Sometime some package get held back for specific reason so you will have install them manually. The restart and update/upgrade again. It's a tedious process but it should flush out most of the old/unused packages.

  3. i have a suggestion for your next thing to make for the hakshop, why don't make a device that has 2 ethernet ports and 3 wireless cards, the first wireless card will only be able to connect to 2.4 ghz networks, the second will only be able to support 5a ghz and the last wireless will be able to connect 5b ghz then the first ethernet will be a normal ethernet wifi in/out but with the second pipe all the data from all the wireless cards and the first ethernet port into the second ethernet port to get a max speed of your wifi. Then also have someway to ssh into the device to configure all the wireless cards.

  4. On any Debian based system use 'sudo apt autoremove' to clear out all but the two latest set of kernel image file-sets. (latest two because after an update you will want the ability to revert to a known working state if anything fails)

  5. Thank you for the video. In ubuntu 16.0.4 and above you can just use the "sudo apt-get autoremove". In versions before that you can edit a couple of files to enable the autoremove capability.
