Yes guys, Vsido is a darn great recovery live system with all the needed tools already included. Thanks a billion for your brilliant work, VastOne.

One of the main reasons I keep a current VSIDO usb around.

Great that it all worked out for you, Snap.

Hi, guys. Besides the VastOne's advices on keeping full system backpups with fsarchiver for recovery purposes, I use rsync daily but not fsarchiver...

Well, a couple of days ago I had to move my computer to other room. Disassembled everything and gently carry all the stuff. Put everything together, booted and... blinking cursor. What the.... 

Tried everything, swapping drives, cables, SATA ports... the disk was apparently dead. Decided to try to recover it just in case it wans't actually dead. Booted my Vsido live ISO (it has fsarchiver on-board!) and was able to mount and read the disk contents, so crossed my fingers and run fsarchiver, erased and reformated the disk, and restored the partitions. Still no joy but again everything was readable, the partitions mounted and worked correctly, so the apparent culprits would be grub and the efi things. time to chroot.

I didn't either remembered the cool vchroot script by harckerdefo (also a vsido default tool) . A great rediscovering! Long story short, I managed to put everything onto a bigger brand new SSD I had around and restoring the grub/efi stuff, plus installing via chroot a fresh Void Linux system on the older SSD. Both systems are now up and running perfectly well. All done from Vsido!

Yes guys, Vsido is a darn great recovery live system with all the needed tools already included. Thanks a billion for your brilliant work, VastOne.

P.S. Don't be lazy and run fsarchiver from a Vsido live ISO regularly whatever the systems you use on your machines. I'll do it from now on. Promise!

Hi!


This one is still breathing and kicking (let alone doing mischief)


So I picked up a HP z400 for about $30 a while back, cleaned it good, and dumped a few harddrives in it (5x500Gb) which I obviously had to put in a raid (it's why my /home is a lil big hehe) As for the screensize... I got a 32" TV for free, so why the hell not (Has HDMI so....) Anyway, enough blabber... Enjoy the screenshot :) Oh and have a nice day!


For the geek in you (conky on the left, tint2 at the top with launchers, urxvt showing neofetch spew, mocp playing music (not showing))

@jed - you still have snow in the shady areas?


Not for a couple of weeks now!!!  I would have already been moved in with you down there had there still been snow.   ??? Our first 70F day finally came May 28th I believe.  Haven't had one since of course...  :'(

 :'( So @PackRat, there have been 4 more +70 (by a degree or two ususally) days since last I posted.  The most terrible and unfortunate news is that while walking the lake property across from the State Park  (we live on the opposite shore of the park), there is indeed still snow in the deep woods. It is not much and will be gone by this weekend I'd think.  I've talked to several other "Maine Guide/Game Warden" friends who all say this is the latest they've seen it on the ground, even in the 'big woods'!  :'(
