    If you click on Install......it will install on your PC.....and that will wipe completely whatever is on your hard drive.
    If you click on TRY, it will run in the RAM of the pc and will do no harm to the current operating system on the pc.
    This threat could also apply to other foreign nationals. If you're in northern Ghana, including the Upper West and Upper East regions, you may be targeted for kidnapping for ransom.
    The US Government issued a security alert advising citizens the US Embassy has received unsubstantiated information that US citizens may be targeted for kidnapping for ransom in northern Ghana, to include the Upper East region and the Upper West region.

    Love to all, Andy, and hope it went as well as could be expected yesterday. Chris and Elaine.
    I am castigating myself that I do not read the Profile Posts often enough, but this is not about me, it is about you and your family, during this trying time of tremendous upheaval that cannot be easily mitigated. Do know that you are in the thoughts, prayers and hearts of Elaine and me at all times, and that if we can be of any comfort to you ... you know where to find me, my good friend. :)
    it is with deep sadness that, i wish to inform i lost my wife this week aged just 46 leaving myself (im 64) and two kids 8 and 16 you may see me fleetingly but probably not much for the next few weeks .
    Hey, I installed Ventoy on a USB stick and I'm sold on it. However, I ran into a little trouble since it formatted my disk as exFAT and Kubuntu didn't have the exFAT drivers installed by default. Just FWIW if anybody has trouble with it in the future ;)

    Captain, how goes things with your wife? I miss you guys. Have been waiting to purchase some tools to get into my motherboard at a deeper level to maybe fix the BIOS with a battery replacement. Then I can reformat that Machine as a devoted Linux computer. Had to get an HP to replace it. Any recommendations for a Linux OS for that Fujitsu if I can revive it?
