Could you add an article about using MX from a USB stick with persistence?
It seems a lot of people have trouble with this one.

Also, you have added Scrivener in the writing tools of the MX setup subsection. It is by far my favorite, but it only works on a Mac or Windooze machine.
The one available for linux is old and ridiculous. I'd take a close look at Focus Writer which is pretty darn good.

In the Bluetooth article from the Arch source, should the command modprobe btus that the user posted be modprobe btusb instead? (Post that here because I don't see any commenting possibility.)

Manyroads I just want to say that I looked at your new knowledgebase and it is impressive. You do good work.

Thank you Jerry. I'll make the change. I had not checked. I was hacking down my 5 acres for my grandsons' joint birthday party this Saturday. Opas (me) have those fun things (I love my noisy tractor...) :eek:

manyroads, i like clear and functional sites.
A view, klick, and you are where you want to go.
No bling bling etc.
Well done!

What i don`t like ;-)
fonts.googleapis.com and scripts

Waterfox just to show the umatrix info, in restricted FF i lost colours and signs ;-)
My daily FF is so nice and clear without "make up"(no scripts, no googleapis), just "content"!

@manyroads - I took a quick tour of your knowledgebase site and was impressed with the quality of the content. I do, however, see a potential problem; what I see of your current organization would not seem to be able to scale up to a decently large number of articles. Maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture, but how do you plan to handle things when you have, for example, hundreds of articles in a given category?

Fixed...;)

I'll look into the article on persistence. It's been a while since I tried it.
