LibreOffice Won’t Open

So this post is a little off track but I really wanted to share this because it is such an issue and has been for a long time now and LibreOffice doesn't seem to be in any hurry to fix it.

Getting ready for the Big Hack

So you are ready for your big hack. You did your research and social engineering, picked out your method of attack, and you think you are ready to go.

Where did the Users & Groups GUI go?

For those of you that have used LINUX previously you may have noticed in the Control Panel, or wherever it may be in your distro, that there is no longer a GUI for Users & Groups.
