Hi from Scotland

Better get the introduction out of the way. 56 year old truck driver from Scotland. Not new to Linux , but sparing you the experience and history of previous distros. (can't understand why people find it necessary to give you their distro history. Honestly! Does it really matter}?
Hats off to Crunchbang though. Minimalist and efficient. What more do you need? And the forum is really helpful (and, yes, friendly}

Nice to see everything going smoothly again after the recent attack, but did you all need to be such drama queens . . . (coups, conspiracies . . . oh seriously!)

Anyway . . . Hello and put up with my grumpiness.

Re: Hi from Scotland

Drama queens, coups, and conspiracy theories are a most favored pastime within the Crunchbang Community mate.

Re: Hi from Scotland

Welcome to CrunchBang, Grumpy, and hope you enjoy the distro (incidentally, drama queens, coups and conspiracies are not even remotely close to part of the CrunchBang experience).

Re: Hi from Scotland

Incidentally Grumpy, Icafiero is merely being delightfully over-modest in regards to the alleged nonexistence of coups, drama queens, and conspiracy theories. big_smile
After all, logic dictates that surely you know the validity of this when it comes to the very introduction you made making note of such accordingly.

Re: Hi from Scotland

^ermmm. As a general rule, nope, we tend to be relatively drama-free for the most part. Though apparently we're in some sort of silly phase that will hopefully pass soon. roll

Erm . . . ok.     I'll also rest my case.  (does that mean I can still hang around and have fun? I kind of like it here)

Re: Hi from Scotland

Welcome from Japan :-)

I think you'll like it here, just a hunch though.

I've seen a dose of drama drip through in the past few years since I've browsed these forums... though they tend to drip on out the bottom.  We're stickier for the content-thick, encouraging, motivating support type stuff, and that doesn't drip.  It fills like marshmellows in a microwave.

Re: Hi from Scotland

Enough is enough!
The drama queen reference was a (misjudged) attempt at humour. Ok?

Been using #! for a while and can't fault it.  The reactions during the attack did get a bit out of order. But it's over and everything's fine now.

I'm now going to pour myself a large whisky and relax.
