Eastern day time in north america

Follow-up:
It did fixed the problem. I had to boot into win 10 after correcting the bios time setting. And then adjusting the clock for the right time zone under porteus 4.x, it displays the right time on my xfce time icon.

Thanks to all.

Eastern day time in north america

But this for now does not fix the problem.

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

BTW Vaccinations are free to all. No $$ involved. "Free cheese has only in a mouse trap" Eastern adage Does free mean not good for your health? "Free v@cc!ne has only in a trap of laboratory mice" Porteus is free, slackware is free, linux is free. Does that mean that the linux OS has no value? Wate...

Hysteria: COVID-19 for everybody.

Here in Québec, we have more than 70% with a first dose, and over 50% with their second dose. And they are now going with an incentive with lottery prizes of good value to encourage the younger and recalcitrant persons. This summer we are regaining almost normal life.

And cheers to mr Pasteur. :beer:

crashed save.dat again

usm error

@beny:
Thanks for the follow-up. I am attracted to Aporteus. Will surely do at some point. Porteus 4.2 is quite stable for my use. And I might try nemesis too. I like the speed of nemesis.

@Ed:
Donald's trick is the solution for me.

Thanks.
