Green and yellow are a such a pain to theme with; so I figured I try both at once:

Wow!  You're totally right about that for sure.  Looks really good so far!

Working on the winblows lappy.  Continuously crashes/bluescreens when appx 12 Gb's of RAM use happens.  Just not releasing memory when it is supposed to.  Nothing running and 8 Gb's + used?  Oh well.  Thank goodness for the stinkpad!

Lowest temp so far outside; 24 F.

Another Windows 10 shot.  Totally sucks.  I haven't used this laptop in months.  (The MSI)

I'll have a scrot shortly of my VSIDO lappy.  It is the stinkpad with 4 GB's of RAM, so VSIDO really screams on it.  Have had a terrible year so far!  Hope it's been good for all of you.  I haven't spoken (IRC or phone) to anyone in a long time.  Oh well, back to the goto lappy...

My goto since the wife is using the MSI...  Thankfully this little ole lappy just screams along with VSIDO!  All I need...

 :'(  Ok, so don't everyone faint or anything, but yes it is indeed a Windows 10 Pro scrot.  Now to get the dual boot working!  Never tried this before...

 :D I think maybe once I had a May-December uh well never mind.   ???

Wow.  Only a plus as a rescue CD?  This has been my OS since aprx. July/August of 2012.  Always a fix for any issue within 24 hours at the most, and a live IRC channel for support.  It's never broke unless I break it myself!  The dev is a good friend and has put years into this project, and also turned this into one of the friendliest Linux distros ever! (i.e. a really GREAT community who all want to help)

Nice professional youtube video.  Had never heard of distrotube before this.  Wish you all the best and hope your endeavor is successful.  The FOSS community needs all the help and promotion it can get.

Also we have never submitted anything to distrowatch on purpose.  The last few years, it is just a clicking contest to see which distro is most popular.  Not the greatest place for people to be looking for a dependable distro imo.

Aye, same here VastOne.  ;D Since summer of 2012 I believe!  Never broken unless, like PackRat, something I've broken myself...  8)

New mainline stable 4.16.7 seems pretty sharp.  Just a couple hours in so we'll see.

Very envious PackRat!  I'd have Windows 10 installed if for no other reason than to be able to actually run comparable programs and see the tremendous Linux whoop ass that would encur!  Somebody wants to hand over a valid LEGAL Win 10 product key I'm all in for testing it on a dual-boot basis!   :D
Haven't been to active, not just here, but on the computer period.  Life throws curves, we install VSIDO...

So my first May scrots.  I was compiling a new kernel and decided to chill out by watching the David Gilmore Live in Gdansk DVD.  Just wow...

Another one gone to soon...  (Richard Wright whom reminded me of my dad so much and just lost Jan.6th)  They both had a love and serious skill on the Hammond Organ with a good Leslie speaker.  Think he played a B or C series Hammond...

And what the hey, here's one more if you think Gilmore can't draw a crowd!

hello PackRat. hi jedi. vsido one system on one machine rules with ... well only 1245 packges. not bigger than 3000. but for comparison , folks.

Aye riV, sounds like a pretty typical VSIDO machine!  You ROCK!!!  I've got things installed on this thing of mine that I've got no memory of installing.  Thing is, it still runs like brand new!  This current install is probably almost 2 years old!  Kept up to date of course.  Think I'll just leave it as is...
Just can't shake the lazy's...

I really don't think they make a club for that!  :D  If they do, and you well never mind...

I actually do like (love? ) my Plasma/KDE setup.  I was getting ready to remove/purge everything related to KDE/Plasma.  Mostly because this was a VSIDO setup, my best yet as my goto system, and Fluxbox is stupendously awesome.  Minus your personal data VSIDO has a really small footprint.  I've got a vast amount of empty space on my sdd not to mention the secondary 1 Tb hdd.  Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has their personal system (only applies to pure Linux machines, i.e. no dual qaudruple booting refind systems) setup and running stably while having more than 3,000 pkgs installed?  I'm just saying, personally I think VSIDO rules!

Boom start something up and it doesn't work just right and just a login away from my Fluxbox dream box!  Instantaneous access to everything, and I sometimes go without rebooting for months.  Yet I have over 3300 pkgs installed...

Same ole.
I still have zsh setup using oh-my-zsh.  I like the cool looks of it.  Still can't get used to trying to do 'bash' stuff in 'zsh' though.  Screws me up everytime...

Time to do a rebuild on my goto I think.  Almost 3400  ???  packages installed and still growing.  Ugh!  Totally all bloat basically.  :o Need to get back to a clean install.

You going to be watching the rodeo or participating  :D

openbox, tint2 -

Well participatiing of course!  NOT!!!  No we ended up coming home that evening.  Got to eat at the Olive Garden though.  As for the rodeo, never been to one and thought it would be an exciting spectacle.  I've watched on tv of course, but never right up against the fence!

(sorry so off topic)

ISO's built, tested and uploading

Still 2:30 for an install.. impressive

Just can't imagine that not being impressive anywhere anytime!  Very nice VastOne!

Trying out a new look, and also, I've had KDE installed for a long time now (maybe a year?) "GASP", and also a different music player than 'gmb' called amarok.  I know it's been around for years, just never tried it and not to impressed.  GMusicBrowser really spoils a person!  VSIDO of course and Fluxbox and Tint2 and yes still conky there too...

Still a work in progress, aint it always?  Anyway, headed to Bangor this morning for an appointment and hopefully the whole weekend!  Maybe a rodeo while we're there, we'll see...

Oops you mean 2018-Feb-21  :-[

Thanks DeepDayze.  The years go by and just get more and more confusing!

Hey riV.  It is a conky that calls a script.  Here is the script called '';
Code: [Select]
# by Crinos512
# Usage:
#  ${execp ~/conky/mine/} #obviously this needs to point to where you store the script
#OSVer=""`lsb_release -i | cut -f 2| tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]"`" ( "`lsb_release -r | cut -f 2`" )"
#WMVer=`Xfwm --version`
Updates=`aptitude search "~U" | wc -l | tail`

#echo "\${voffset -20}\${font Diamond Fantasy:style=Bold:pixelsize=20}\${alignc}\${color}\$nodename\${font}"
#echo "\${font Liberation Sans:style=Bold:pixelsize=11}\${alignc}~ \$kernel \$machine ~"
#echo "\${alignc}~ $OSVer ~ $WMVer ~"
echo " \${alignc}${Updates} Sys Upd"
#echo "\${alignc}~ $Conky  ~"
#echo "\${alignc}~ Uptime: \$uptime_short ~\${color}\${font}"
#echo "\(Conky \${conky_version}\${exec conkyForecast -V})"
echo "\${font xirod:Bold:size=6}NUM: \${exec xset q | grep Num |awk '{print " "\$8}'}  \${font}"
echo "\${font xirod:Bold:size=6}CAPS: \${exec xset q | grep Caps |awk '{print " "\$4}'}  \${font}"
exit 0

Wherever you want the keyboard indicators to appear, just call it from the appropriate place in your conky with the following;
Code: [Select]
${execpi 9 ~/conky/mine/}
To my knoweledge the script was written by 'crinos518' whom I haven't seen online in years?  The script does much more than just show the caps lock and num lock state.  Any line with a '#' in front of it is not seen by the script when it runs.  It has lots of goodies.  Enjoy...
Good Luck!
