Title: Back once again lol.
Post by: cobaltwolfe on March 24, 2014, 09:40:31 PM
Hello all it has been quite a long time since I was last online here. Many many things have happened in the interim and it left me without a laptop for a long while but I will be picking up a Dell D620 in a couple of days and installing Vsido on it. Well anywho figured I would do a semi re-intorduction since it has been so long…

So…… Hello All!

Ty for the welcome.

While the laptop didn't end up working out (RAM way to expensive to justify) I did get to build a free system that has the following specs
Intel Pentium D 3.2Ghz
4Gb DDR2 800
BFG Geforce 7900 GS OC
160Gb HDD + 1Tb external attached

This should be an interesting experience I'm downloading the ISO now as I type this.

Welcome back cobaltwolfe! Those specs arent bad at all and should make for a great experiance for you and vsido.

The Pentium D is a fantastic budget cpu for socket 775 boards.  You can get them from amazon for as little as $25 (used) and they last forever.

I was actually quite thoroughly enjoying the system (After updating the Gfx to a XFX Radeon HD 7770 Ghz edition) but then the HDD decided to crap out on me. Meh once I can order a new one this thing should last a fairly decent amount of time especially for gaming with that graphics card.

Currently I'm running the Vsido X32 on a Toshiba Satellite with a P4 @ 3Ghz 2Gb Ram and a 60Gb HDD I'm only having one single issue which was put into the general section.

I'm rather glad to be back here. I loved #! but I've always been a fan of going for broke and using the unstable and testing sides of Debian. I've broken my computers more times than I can count and loved almost every minute of it as it forces me to learn more and more.

The thing is, when is SID unstable?  6 years using it now and I can count on two fingers how many times it has borked...

Wait!  One finger, my middle one!  It was Perl Jam I and Perl Jam II that caused both

perl has a shitty way of blind siding all other apps in updating with little or no warning

#! is what it is... something I could never go back to

Never had the issue with perl, the only time I've had sid or testing spontaneously bork was when some gnome library wasn't updated with the rest of gnome. On the other hand, I wish I had a US dollar for every time I managed to bork it.
