sock-oh, if I remember correctly.

 

It's also "lew-pold", not "lia-pold".

 

One of the rags had a whole list of jumbled names... Swore-off-ski, etc.


In Topic: No More 32 Bit Chrome

I have a few old laptops and the take 32 bitr

Those laptops must be damn old. Are you sure they won't support 64-bit?

 

Fedora 24 supports 32 bit (and 64-bit, of course), and Chromium is in the Fedora/RPMFusion repos. That's actually a simple fix.

 

I'd prefer a Linux alternative to trying to run XP/Vista. Absolute security nightmares. Chromium (and Chrome) definitely won't work on either XP or Vista.

 

I ran Chromium for a bit, and it was tough to tell the difference between it and Chrome.

If you have chrome on a 32 bit box LEAVE IT ALONE .

If you try to reinstall and lose it you will be SOL as Google is not issuing Chrome.

Found  out that the hard way

Why are you running a 32-bit OS? Were you running Fedora Linux, or is this on a Windows PC?

My recommendation is to uninstall Chrome on a 32-bit system. That 32-bit version of Chrome may run, but you won't see any security updates.

 

 

You have two options:

 

- Install Chromium: http://chromium.woolyss.com/

 

- Install Firefox: https://www.mozilla....refox/products/

 

 

Chromium is a web browser based-on the (open) source code of Chrome. Google adds custom stuff atop the open parts of the Chromium code, but visually and operationally there isn't much difference between the two. You'll manually have to add flash (www.flash.com). Chrome add-ons work in Chromium.

 

Firefox is my preferred browser. It does what I need, and it's open source in every way. As with Chromium, you'll have to manually add Flash.

For Chromium, add the following extensions/add-ons: uBlock Origin, Flash Control, and Https Everywhere.

For Firefox, add the following extensions/add-ons: uBlock Origin, Flashstopper, and Https Everywhere.

Interesting link to the un-cropped footage:

 

 

Doesn't appear to be US Forces. I can't read the block symbols, but I'm guessing it's Chinese. It's Greek to me.

 

The uniforms don't look right for US Marine or US Army.
