The usual suspects. Been using tilix terminal lately. Decent terminal.

Nice RatMan    8)

That is an interesting question and I am curious where the data is retrieved from because though mine shows the following it is much much older than that.. On that date shown I took an fsarchive from another machine I was shutting down due to a power supply failure

My guess is that this is from an install from 4 years ago at least.. as a matter of fact there is a thread somewhere on here where I had my last critical failure (Perl Jam II I will find it) which would have been my actual last install .. I intend to keep it alive as long as as I am

WOW longer than that actually... time is getting away from me ... PackRat and I discuss Perl Jam I and II woes

The other side of that is where, most of us keep a separate /home, a 'new' install is really just a refresh of the OS so we can get back to our settings...  8)

Hello VastOne and PackRat and everyone
Birth: -
You get a date when here get a -.  (?)
In the 2014 post, VastOne stated count on two fingers [twice] in six years.  I will add here a since, once in seven years, to that.
The long story is, I got started with vsido around 2013live-2014install. one hdd failure i switched to Lite vsido and machine change.  Machine made it through two python/ perl escapades that, i did read, shut down a lot of machines. I was proud to make it through those ; But,, a xorg upgrade killed it later.  (RE)Installation brought machine to the xorg updates,,, and machine quit every time after the xorg upgrades. I switched install attempts between Lite and stock regular several times, finally got one to succeed with xorg and beyond.  here is the date of that re-install with stock vsido. now another python change in its history. An excuse for blather, thanks for the pointer to stat birth:date fun.   2019-10-31 11:26:51 
mail, apt, and dpkg logs begin that date 10-31., so i think that is it. (?) 

Thank you for vsido.
