Re: "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo!

OH!  is this thread basically pointing to same idea of the afterlife?

that was not immediately apparent to me.  ^_^

LONG LIVE SPAR~,   *gag*, no, cant even bring myself to say those words.  heheheeh. XD

there are many who are forking, but will we gather to ensure one heads straight and true, and ongoing manage to keep it holding form?  that's my hope.

i love the packagebang .deb-it-up idea. 
"cd sized iso" is highly praised and sought too.

There's a video clip there.  Don't worry, it's Star Trek.  (It's a fan work, but it has Paramount's approval and support from many TOS and TNG cast members.)  Original script was from an abandoned TNG episode.

Re: "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo!

By the way, was Zurg ever given any kind of backstory in the films?  I'm sure I can find a fanfic that gives him a sympathetic backstory...

Dammit, now I need to watch the films. lol

Re: "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo!

As w all muntinies, some basic bridgework and foundations must be laid. Fundamental decisions made and some agreements reached. As such, perhaps 1st things 1st.

In accordance w the how 2 mutiny for dummies handbook I'm reading, it says here, a council of mutineers have to be nominated to make necessary decisions and a leader of said council selected, otherwise it's just a mindless mob and as likely to come unraveled or kill each other, as to get anything productive done.

I hereforto propose as leader of the mob Don IntoCB. He is clearly the best qualified, if for no other reason than this > "(random name suggestion: Debarchery)" is brilliant ! smile

IntoCB is in fact friggin brilliant imo tongue but now moving on to more serious babbling. Jmo ... this is wrong on sooooo many levels and confusingly right on just as many or more. Kinda leaves cbiz, scratching head and unsure how 2 feel about developments. Shrugs ... can't poss find fault w people following their passions and inspirations no matter what.

Also #!-Captn aka: Core ... if this isn't a serious friggin wake up call fellow nixer, then I've never seen one .. sheesh. Might be a good time to step in here and try to reach a reasonable compromise to satisfy all parties. Stuff like this starts going on and iz a good indication you're about to walk da plank. Yowza ! The #! community and #! are in serious trouble and have been for a longgggggggg time.

Would like to see if it's poss for everyone to find a happy medium, official cb-lite, #!-Sid, v. cb-xfce etc etc ( at least if there's some use for a sub-spin ie: #!-4handicap vision challenged etc etc. Not ooooo this version has pcmanfm instead. smile ) and as many general and overall improvements as the need to be made to keep a. The kickbutt nixers left here ( or new here too), from having to set out on their own from scratch and do it all over. Though if there's enough determination, don't doubt they/you could.

b. Without seeing the HMS#! burst into flames and sink beneath the waves along w all the other wrecks of gnu/nix distro's past>present>future. Would be a gawd awful waste me thinks. Though this could poss be the stupidest babble biz has ever typed too.

Honestly though it's not like there isn't enough nixy goodness to go around and there are tonnes of many kickbutt nixers chomping at the bit to contribute. Sighs ... dammit, going to come right out and say it. For a long, long time been expressing and thinking #! is too plainjane, too many basic things that are just left crapped up in the distro, too many holes, too many shortcomings, not enough effort to do anything about it. Even when there's a friggin virtual army of nixers here that want to do the work. Imo #! represents years or Core's life, years of many other community ( or former) members lives and it'd be a downright shame to see it crash and burn.

Vll! - Vl#!! and Viva la Sparkle Dancer?! < wtf ? I nominate IntoCB as the grand imperial poobah again ! wink

@intoCB:  It is possible that, as one of the mods that steered us through some troubled waters, I'm a good choice for "The Man in Charge", but The Man always needs Men and Women of Action.  I should disclose, for example, that this weekend will be the first time I've ever actually looked at the contents of a .deb with a mind to repackaging it.

damo's little deb howto:

# Write md5sums [removes leading "./" from filenames]
cd extract
md5sum `find -type f | cut -c 3-` > DEBIAN/md5sums

mkdir build
dpkg-deb -b extract/ build/

NB
Change the ownership of all configuration files to root before rebuilding (see Debian Bug 291320 [2]) – otherwise the deployed files will be owned by you (or the user with your uid). Run the following commands as root

chown -R root:root DEBIAN

Re: "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo!

^ Not worried about the init system.  DEbarchery will be all about the UI.  If Debian netinstall ships with systemd, u get systemd; else sysvinit.

EDIT:  Of course, on your own system, you can ship Jessie with whatever/whoever you want. tongue

Re: "Sparkle Dancer"? Nooooo!

@Damo ... lmao, hmmmm there's a definite additional appeal there fellow nixer.

IntoCB, I gotcha, you're a behind da throne kinda personality ( me too.) wink

More #! sub-spin suggestions in no particular order. Crunch-Cop ( security oriented ... pen-testing etc.) Crunch4kids ( obvious what it'd be about), Crunch4Class ( varying Ed level sub-spin(s).) Most importantly Crunch4Cuties ( gnu/Linux just needs more women PERIOD, it's a friggin sausage fest dang it !) < This one will have to be maintained by someone w sufficient estrogen to understand women, what they want, think etc etc. I've never been able to make heads or tails of them. big_smile

Just an opinion, am serious about the above, poss'es are endless. Though people would of course want credit where due and or a share of whatever results. Kinda makes sense that the people willing to do the work, get some reward, shrugs.

Also didn't really mean to imply someone (one particular person) should be appointed as leader, maybe among the individual sub-spins and projs. Though jmo, that should be based off of qualifications and skills etc they provide and the resulting quality of what ea individual nixer can contribute etc.

Maybe #! forum needs an encrypted community section to discuss things and comm w Core ? Yeah again ... in real life everyone is not friggin equal, not equally qualified ... not entitled to an equal say, nor share if they're a clueless azzhat. Disagree w me if ya like, you have every right to be wrong if you want to be. big_smile

SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE, HOLDING HANDSSSSS.

Not saying based off of join date, number of posts etc etc. Though makes sense someone has to prove themselves in some reasonable way, before being granted full membership of the type of thing am babbling about above, 2 cents blahblah.

OoooOoooo speaking of which just thought of another ConkyCrunch ! We all know Sector11 would have to be the main dude/nixer for that one. wink Nah ... ( unless he likes the idea), kewl conky wizards like Sector could if they so desired do some kickbutt nixy conkiness for #! overall, 2 more cents, that's = 4 cents. big_smile

Also in this rush to Sid and everyone, including several new-faces who clearly can't find their arses w both hands posting about starting new distros thing. Think folks are forgetting which came 1st, the chicken or the Crunchbang, #! did dammit ! Just saying, don't think Core or that fact's perhaps getting the attention or credit due. This convo wouldn't even be happening if Core hadn't done what's he's done and quite a few learned much they've added to their nixy-trickbags here in this forum and community too.

Though personally learned much more w independent studies, shrugs. Whatever getting back to babble. Just saying, might want to consider fully what's involved in total. Starting a distro ( even coming out with a decent one, is in my view fairly easy.) Making it matter and dealing w all the logistics, expenses blahblah involved, now that's likely summin different and to what end ?

A handful of people loosely putting out nixiness ? Reinventing the wheel comes to mind and the majority die still-born, anyone remember VastOne ( of course plenty do.) Think Visudo's a ghost town now. Doesn't even have a listing on Distrowatch. Machinebacon on the other hand has made massive headway w LBBQ and really not surprised the friggin guy is a nix mad scientist + already had a ready made community of kickbutt nixers. Still not sure how happy he/they are w the proj. Make of babble whatcha will ...

Just saying ... Viva la "DEBarchery Animal" ! tongue

This is good for a quick-and-dirty approach when you don't depend on much else (we use this in my company for the internal repos) but you want to have a dh_make etc based (i.e., recommended but more complex) workflow where you can use the debhelpers since otherwise, deploying patches or frequently packaging upstream sourcecode (which might require changes to the build environment etc) becomes very messy...
