After the Firefox audio issue was dealt with, this thing is running better than I've ever see it. The games seem faster, more accurate, I'm kind of astounded. I haven't once had the video card have an issue. Perhaps that's the secret, give Nvidia 5 years to come up with a semi-decent driver. Maybe Mint's Xfce disto is simply that good. Don't know, but I'll happily take it. Using one of the wallpapers that are included in the distro now.

It's funny how many images you can find just by going through articles.

I've found that when you find the direct link to an image that's displayed on a site or in an article, the file name often ends with dash, resolution, dot and the extension. For example, one of the images above came from this blog entry:

https://blogs.microsoft.com/blog/2023/0 ... oft-cloud/

If you get the link to the image that's on that page, you'll have:

Code: Select all

https://blogs.microsoft.com/wp-content/uploads/prod/2023/07/1-GettyImages-1421511938-1024x683.jpg
https://blogs.microsoft.com/wp-content/ ... 24x683.jpg

Much of the time, if you remove the dash-resolution bit from the URL (obviously retaining the extension) , you'll be looking at a larger image:

Code: Select all

https://blogs.microsoft.com/wp-content/uploads/prod/2023/07/1-GettyImages-1421511938.jpg
https://blogs.microsoft.com/wp-content/ ... 511938.jpg
