@ hinto, give me the red pill please, perhaps it can help me figure this thread out

It's not that type of pill wink  There's a different one for bloating.

Re: F*** it

So you're mad because the moderators moved your thread to the correct sub-forum? I've been on those forums over 5 years (you for less than a month) and your topic was 100% absolutely "recurring"---I've read discussion on that topic at least 100 times (you even linked to some of them); the mods made the right call. And it's childish to come here to complain about it, instead of here: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=123 Cowboy up and fight your own fights, don't come whining to us. smile

Kudos to #! mods for not overreacting and immediately /closing this thread; it is nice to have a safe haven where we can rag on other distro's communities. wink

Re: F*** it

No, you're right, snowpine. I could highlight the humorous and/or self-deprecating elements e.g. about sulking etc. or the fact that it was written on a Friday evening and that the intent was playful. However, when you break it down, the fact is that my nose was put out joint by moderators of another forum carrying out their duties according to the rules governing posting on that forum. That's a "whine" in anyone's book.

I apologise.

Re: F*** it

No worries, the internet would be a boring place if we didn't whine and complain. wink

No, that wasn't a whine, it was a complaint; I might go so far as to call it a gripe, but it wasn't a whine.  If you want to hear whining, look up "Rarity whining" on Youtube.  (You'll want to turn down your treble. wink )

As far as I can tell, we're all cool here. cool


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.

@BigBenAugust - there is GhostBSD openbox, which as close as you'll get to Crunch on FreeBSD, without a DIY approach. Actually that's not such a daft idea. Very shaky in parts but then that makes it truer to the CrunchBang mission-statement-cumethos.-

Yeah, I have run it in a VM before.

I decided to throw FreeBSD on my home desktop for something different. I ran it on a laptop many years ago back when wireless ethernet was a gleam in it's daddy's eye. I have forgotten how long it takes to build everything from ports. smile

(Totally O/T)
FreeBSD 9.0 installer actually sets up your wifi as part of the install process nowadays.
(Apart from Broadcom, of course.  big_smile )
