Fantastic!
« on: October 07, 2013, 12:14:28 AM »
Hello to all and especially to my old friend VastOne.  Where have I been?!  I should have gotten over here sooner.  I am really excited about VSIDO!  I just built a new computer with 4 320G hard drives and VSIDO will occupy one of them.  I'm a little confused by the menu setup right now because I am used to editing my own menu and I have not ever seen Fluxbox set up like this.  Having said that, I'm sure I'll figure it out soon and it is very, very nice.  You may remember (VastOne), that I love Fluxbox.  I am so happy to see that you are putting it in the spotlight where it belongs.  I'm at work right now but I can't wait to get home and play.  Hopefully I'll be posting a few screenshots soon.

Thanks Dizzie, glad to be here.  I'm looking forward to diving in and seeing "what's doing" lol.  It appears that VSIDO has been around for a while and I'm a little late to the party.  :)

Hey ElderV!

I was hoping that one day you would find you way here...My first tastes with FluxBox were because of you but sadly I did not invest enough time with it then...

PackRat has been instrumental in a lot of the FluxBox info here, but now that I have it and use it, I will probably never use anything else

Glad you could make it and we are really glad to have you...   :)

Welcome LaCoste!  Good to finally see you here!  Yes, VastOne has created a great distro, and, a great community has sprang up around it.

Again, really nice to see you here!

@VastOne - Thanks for the welcome.  I just have to mention what a beautiful job you have done with the installer.  I wish every distro was this painless to install.  It was actually a fun experience.  I remember PackRat from over there at Crunchbang.  I always admired (and sometimes attempted to copy his setups with varying success).  It's good to see some old friends here.  :)

@sqlpython - I'm happy you discovered Fluxbox.  I remember the first time I used it was while I was using a wonderful Slackware distro called Wolvix.  The rest is history.  There is just something about the simple elegance that just got me.
