Hello from Detachment 7
« on: January 14, 2013, 07:52:00 PM »
My quick "Hello World"! Glad to be here. Got a 'tip' from "The Legend" this was the new distro! Downloading now and will have installed shortly. As with all of VastOne's work, I'm sure this will exceed my expectations!

Welcome home Jed.  :D
You'll find the install a little faster than "The Script"!

Nooooooooo I'm on a diet.
Can I have 2 and 9998 coffees instead?

I believe that with that much coffee, even BA would become a 'small' place!  You'd be climbing the walls!!!  Good to be home.  Ran the iso I downloaded, and realized I've been running VSIDO since around the 12th of November!  Shhhh.  Don't tell anyone.  (Or am I mistaken in that?  It felt and looked exactly like the iso VastOne allowed me to DL from Dropbox)

^ Hi Jed ... Yea, you've been here longer than you realized.  That's why I gave you a heads up about the forum.  You've had the OS for a bit, this just seems natural follow up.
So does this mean we were the first 2 guinea pigs?  Just got done chatting with VO on irc and am going to dl the latest iso.  He's got a new HowTo coming soon!

@Jed!

I love that freaking avatar!!!

Nice... Yes, you and Sector11 were my original test products!

I knows how to pick em!!!!
The avatar is definitely freaky!  As with all the good things I've 'borrowed' off the net, I can't remember where I got it!

^  no you have that wrong Jed.  I was a very willing volunteer almost from day one.  :D

And VastOne is missing a few hairs because of that I'm sure.
Not that I was "unwilling" more like "unwitting"! lol  I'm just glad this distro "found" me!  For that, the thanks goes to you Sector11...

Some nostalgia for you!



You should see the old Linux cd's I have of different distros.  They date back to 1999!

You cannot believe how excited I am about that!!!! Wow!  I was a MONSTER OS/2 fan and it still holds a close place in my heart.

I will try to VSIDO it once I get it!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane...

No problem!  Just PM me a place to ship it to and it's yours!  Least I can do after all the success I've had with VSIDO!  A small price to pay for the best all around distro I've ever had.
