Archive folders on

There are now several folders available with the mintCast archive to make it easier for you to find older episodes if wanted these go from episode 1 up to episode 300 and include the interviews with several of the past hosts for episode 300.

001 to 121

122 to 150

151 to 200

201 to 250

251 to 300

I’m not sure how many will find it useful but it does make it a little easier to access older episodes so if your a show kleptomaniac, enjoy.

Remember if you would like to support the show, then we are asking for donations to be made to

    • The Cons of the 7130
      • Battery life is not that great
      • Need proprietary charger if drained low
      • Loud under high load
      • Will not support 2 displaylink monitors very well
      • The largest micro sd card i can get it to reliably support is 32gb

    • GAFilk in Atlanta was great 1/10-1/13.
    • I got rid of LMDE, wasn’t using it or even configuring it. Replaced with Deepin 15.8, couldn’t get Grub Customizer (they used to include this). Replaced that with MX 18. I REALLY like this distro but HATE the desktop.
    • I finally got tired of apologizing for KDE neon. Half the time I booted to it, the full desktop would not load; it would halt at different points.
    • LM 19.1 MATE has been offering zero problems for either myself or my wife. I did an upgrade from 19 on my machine, full install on hers.
    • Got all my new gear in from Tux Digital — sticker, hoodie. Hoodie is VERY lightweight — and one size smaller than advertised (but so am I). Absolutely love love love the logo.
    • LM 19.1 XFCE has not been any better than MATE in any way that I can see, and one of my games locks up (PySol FC) from the time I attempt to play the first card. Looking for a replacement.
    • Bodhi 5.0.0 huh?
  • Tony H
    • Resubscribed to the MagPi magazine and got a free Pi3 A+ as a free gift, check it out here:
