    Nope no optical :)

    Has a good amount of IO tho, with a SD card, headphone jack (do I really have to say this), HDMI and Ethernet, which is basically everything I need.

    My new laptop has 2 USB-C 3.1 ports, and 2 USB-A 3.1 ports. So yes, I don't have any USB2 ports to install Windows 7 with.

    Note, the drivers are needed even for USB2 devices plugged in via a 3.0 port.

    Yup, the CDC has samples in their high-security Atlanta facility, and the Russians in Koltsovo.

    It gets a little complicated because if you have the install media connected on a USB3 port, after the BIOS loads up the operating system, Windows will have no idea how to talk to the usb drive you booted it from.

    Thats why you need to have the USB 3.0 drivers on the install media, as they are needed before the automatic driver download can run.

    Windows 7 is older than USB 3..

    [–] California abandons plan to tax text messages rohbotics 7 points ago in news

    The numbers are fairly high but the percentages are low, ur are paying around 1-1.5% of your home value. Meanwhile Illinois residents pay upwards of 2% per year.

    If Amtrak loses money on every train, then the more trains they run the more money they lose, so they are not going to make more trains.

    Well also, where are you going to put all those leaves?

    [–] Florida Elections For Governor And U.S. Senate Heading For Recount rohbotics 1 points ago in news

    What if you like a party, but not the MP running in your district for that party? Is there choice within there?

    Just curious.

    [–] Florida Elections For Governor And U.S. Senate Heading For Recount rohbotics 5 points ago in news

    This is who we voted for this year:

    • Governor
    • Lieutenant Governor
    • Senator
    • Congressman
    • City Council Members
    • State Legislator
    • State Senator
    • State Superintendent of Education
    • State Treasurer
    • Local School Board Members

    This is from memory, there could be some that I am forgetting. I guess some of these could be appointed positions, or we could just use 11 pieces of paper like you suggest :)

    You are only voting on one thing?

    In my local election there were at least 10 offices and 4 issues we voted on.

    [–] Putting the Robot Operating System (ROS) on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ rohbotics 2 points ago in robotics

    I know I keep peddling our stuff, but that is because its useful (and free!)

    We maintain a build of the raspbian kernel and firmware as debs for ubuntu.

    sudo sh -c 'echo "deb https://packages.ubiquityrobotics.com/ubuntu/ubiquity xenial pi" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubiquity-latest.list' 
    
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://ha.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-key C3032ED8 
    
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade
    

    You will get a kernel and firmware that is more up to date than Ubuntu MATE has bothered with :)

    For firefox, you need to downgrade to

    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-security/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+build/12375152 (the last link)

    sudo apt-get -y purge firefox
    wget  -O firefox.deb https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-security/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+build/12375152/+files/firefox_52.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1_armhf.deb
    sudo apt-get -y --allow-downgrades install firefox.deb
    sudo apt-mark hold firefox
    
    rm firefox.deb

    It works with the Pi 2 (as far as we know), Pi 3 and 3B+ (tested platforms).

    Makes perfect sense. Just putting it out there for people who don't want to go through the effort.

    Well he works for Facebook, so to sell shares he needs to do so in a way that minimizes his ability to operate on insider information.
