comment Nmap Logs Question
Funny thing about zenmap which you say below. It's not always as reliable as the nmap tool being called from the command line. Call your same command directly from the command line with nmap and not zenmap and see if you get different output.

comment How to find the built-in bluetooth adapter in Toshiba satellite c55-896 laptop
Um... I have a question: Are you absolutely heart-set on a Bluetooth wireless mouse? If you have a spare USB port, a Logitech wireless mouse (with one of their Unifying Receivers, so it's not Bluetooth) would give you the ability to have a wireless mouse. It'd also probably be a little cheaper than a Bluetooth mouse, but still be wireless. (It also prevents you from having to buy a new laptop)

comment Flash player blocked?
Please update your answer, Wilf, to include the fact there is an update now available which is OK by Firefox. (Not necessarily the world at large, but Firefox at least)

ALso, you need to make sure that you include relevant points of links in your answers - rather than just post the links - to make a good answer.

He's asking for the older PHP 5.3 packages, not just how to set up a LEMP stack.

@gartenriese Mint is offtopic here though, on Ask Ubuntu. Maybe based on Ubuntu, but NOT Ubuntu.

comment Compile Dogecoin wallet
I don't think that's the issue - they don't have a make file or a configure script run, and that's part of the compile instructions (see the comment on the question itself)

comment “Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable” warning
@immibis I think Firefox is just hastening its death. In any case, I think this is a nice summary of the timeline of events. As well, as a security person, I can understand why they did it - to protect the end-user consumer from bad things as a result of the 'insecure' version. I think that while you're right, treading toes here is bad like the agenda shows, I'd rather disable the plugin than risk having my system totally exposed to RCE (remote code execution) exploits in the wild.
