The current Linux Mint desktop

This one in particular, the first screenshot from the new little monster, the X220.
Nothing much, just a comfy Cinnamon desktop...
Yes, I named the lappie Sojourner.

112K and counting!

Another thousand up...
Lately I'm listening to music like a mean MF.

Is It Saturday Already?

Never mind...
It was time to clean a bit of the X220 innards...
It was somehow clean, all things considered...

Linux Mint 18 on the Thinkpad X220

So, yes, installed Linux Mint 18, Cinnamon, on the the X220.
I say God Damn!
I've read a lot about the little laptop, but, hell, the MF flyes!
Pretty sure this is going to be a great lappie and I'll have a helluva time burning it to the ground...

A New (Little) Monster Rises

Yesterday got a somehow nice deal on a used X220.
Wanted something portable, to replace the T60p, the lappie I use whenever I have to go to a client's office or site.
The T60p is still amazing, but it is starting to show its age... Have to open up to oil the fan a couple of times (it refuses to boot otherwise) and, of course, its 32 bits, so only has 3 GB of RAM, and last but not least, it uses old school headphones, with different connectors for the headphones and the mic.
Will see where this little lappie goes...

Cinnamon: Change Your Passwd

A senior moment, if you will...
A little reminder... I always, no matter what, can't find the option to change my password on Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon...
IMHO, that option should be under
System Settings > Users & Groups...
And not on
System Settings > Account Details...
Or, at least, I believe it should include a link on Account Details to change the passwd.
Anyway, just a thought...
