Chatter!

PostPosted by blaze » Sat Apr 01, 2017 3:24 am

What the thread title says really. Do you wanna share the weather at your home, bummed out by something, want to blow off some old steam, fallen in love with someone or something, or if you just want to leave your mark here when you are visiting the forum like a dog on the morning walk? Please leave a comment here in this thread!

There are probably some of you that think that threads like this are superfluous, but I like them and are fascinated by the randomness of thoughts that appear there. Sometimes how the themes of discussion jumps from silly crap to seriousness of some kind. Plus it might help the technical discussions to stay clean, on topic and not get spammed by irrelevant chatter. ;)

This is after alll the offtopic section, and if you want to create a community, even if it is small, the offtopic section are important for the easy going, get to know each other meeting of the minds. It might even help in the long run to avoid misunderstandings if the temperature should get high in a technical debate if/when people have met and have a minimum of understanding of each other. :)

So that was really all for now, time to spam away with pointless trivia. :lol:

Looking forward to +4! :D

You are probably right about that. It does not feel so, but it is probably me being disorganized. Hey wait, now I know what it is, I am not a dev! :D

Going to try and complete a 30 km day trek over easter, if all goes well i should be able to do it in about 8 - 10 hours. The trek involves some rough terrain but doable.

The download took bloody forever on a slow internet connection. Now the first live run of the new iso, so far after ten minutes not much other than it looks really smooth with a nice set of wallpapers. :)

^Wow that is so cool, hope your dad will like it then. Or maybe he is accustomed to both Openbox an Linux? Me, I am starrting all over again with +3.4, some weird shit about signing keys that I have to double check with a second download. :|

Nope, Poppa Dobbie is coming from MacOS.

That's strange, if it persists make a thread in the Bug forum.

Wow MacOS , quite a transition he is making then. From the sweet and smooth glmaour of a Mac to the austerity of the Openbox. Good that it is quite easy to bling it up a bit then.

By the way, just wanted to mention that the new exit strategy is really cool. Great work on that one guys! :)

Yep, I think Poppa Dobbie found OSX too awkward. I reckon he will take to Openbox like a pro.

Yeah none of use really liked the AL-Exit. Oblogout is the way to go.

I wish "Poppa all the best with his brand new ArchLab, and he got a good consultant that works for free if he runs into any trouble! ;)

Will be spending most of this glorious day in the car. Sunny and nice at the least. Listening to music while driving.

Keep on "labbing", and see you all tomorrow guys! :)

I don't see the point of a forum where there is no " chatter ".
If all some people want is technical information or solutions then there are wikis for that.
Even if you just need someone to bitch to about your lousy day, chatter is a stress reliever.
Some people even find it fun. :P

^^ I do so agree with you, and ^lol, I am trying my best. Back home again, and things have been piling up! Not much time for labbing I am afraid. Lots of real life pushing for attention.

Will try to steal a session or two, Happy Easter everybody! :)

Yes, not bad at all considering the very short timeframe for it`s existence. And 548 downloads/week :o

I am seriously considering setting up a second computer with ARCHLabs :shock:

^Yes why oh why...probably so you can enjoy some fun time in the Lab after work. ;)

I hope that you don`t have a fence to paint, or something equally uninspiring scheduled for the rest of your well deserved weekend.
