Ich bin wirklich unklar... blush.gif

Ernsthaft,
im Sommer 2009 hatte ich "wieder einmal" von WINDOWS die Nase gestrichen voll. Ich nahm mir vor, dieses OS von meinem Rechner zu entfernen. diablo.gif

Im Zeitschiftenhandel bekam ich den "Linux-User" in die Hand. Darin befanden
sich ein paar Live-CD's.
Am besten gefiel mir mandriva.

Alles, wirklich alles, war mir unklar!
Als ich mich im Forum bei mandrivauser.de anmeldete, wollte man einen Nicknamen... und, ich nahm diesen.

So ist das entstanden.  wink

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

^LOL. For those who don't read German, I asked unklar why he uses the name unklar, which means "unclear" in English.

He responded that he's really unclear and went on to describe how in 2009 once again became fed up with Windows and decided to remove the OS from his PC. He found a copy of Linux-User, with a couple of live CDs, at a newstand. He liked Mandriva best and...

Everything, really everything, was unclear for him. When he signed up for German Mandriva forum, he needed a user/nickname and he picked unklar. That's how it happened.

He thinks my nickname also "needs getting used to."  devil

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

@g33zr - so it's clear the unklar is not clear.  Maybe we should nickname him: Undurchsichtig ]:D


@ratcheer :lol:  :lol:  :lol: ratcheer in the morning

So is that: Corn, Olive or Sunflower?

EDIT:  I can see it now: Ye Ole Oil Can

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

@Sector11 - Well, I don't actually use liquid oil. On alternating days, I use shea "body butter" and a lotion based on hemp oil (which I'm sure doesn't contain THC, because I just get it at regular stores).

I really like the hemp-based lotion. I had a lesion on my wrist from removing a "pre-cancerous" spot. The lesion had persisted for months. After I started using this lotion, the lesion almost completely disappeared in a couple of months. Maybe that would have happened anyway, but I don't think so.

Getting old is a PITA.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

@ ratcheer  ops  I am so sorry. ops   I thought it was a joke.

We can't get that here, but I'm sure there are equivalents. 

My wife has me using this: Bagovit A Classic
Not so bad, doesn't smell perfumery like the other creams she uses.  I've always had a "general purpose" hand cream in the bathroom as my skin has a tendency to be really dry and cream seemed to stop the 'hangnail' problem that I use to pick at an bleed for weeks.

translation wrote:

Hypoallergenic. A rich and creamy, highly nourishing texture that acts in depth, allowing natural cell regeneration.

The nutritional properties of Vitamin A makes it ideal for use in prone to stretch marks as pregnancy and adolescence periods.

It helps to improve the appearance of damaged skin, such scars after healing of burns and sore nipples.

Recommendations for use: Apply daily as many times as necessary to the desired area, with gentle massage to facilitate penetration and absorption.

I've told her there is no fear of me getting pregnant and to forget adolescence periods!  roll

What's the world coming to!

Getting old may be a PITA but it's better than the other option.  smile

No problem at all.

But, see, we both have the same problem (very dry skin). I have been this way most of my life (a dermatologist once told me, "You have the driest skin I have ever seen."), but it has only been the last few years that it has given me so much trouble with my feet. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night and have to re-apply lotion.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

OUCH!  I'm not that bad.  Mind you I've noticed that I'm using the B-A cream more than I use to.  Must be a subconscious thing.  The creams I use to use were just some cheap general purpose hand cream, this is much better.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

I hope you guys don't mind a relatively young buck chiming in here, but I've had similarly troublesome skin since childhood and have been oiling my "joint" (and just about everything else) since I was a teen; fortunately, I chanced across a dermatologist who had experience treating ichthyosis vulgaris.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Hey, I've just discovered some of the "benefits" of passing 60 here in the UK......free drug prescriptions and a free eye-test! The gov also keeps wanting to screen me for various conditions. I don't know whether to laugh or cry  hmm

Unfortunately they have upped the threshold age for a free bus pass, so I'm not eligible until 2022 sad

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Sector11 present and accounted for! Coffee anyone?

I'm sorry, I'm finished 'snapping-to' and calling people Sir! a long time ago.

There is a young lieutenant trying to get a coke out of a machine but has no change, a private is walking by ...
Lt. "Private, do you have change for a five?"
Pvt. "Yea, I think so just let me che...."
LT.  "Just a minute Pvt.  I'm an officer.  When I address you you will stand to attention and address me as SIR!.  Now let's start again. Private, do you have change for a five?"
Pvt. ... snapping to attention ... "SIR! NO, SIR!"

Greetings all, yes, like Sector11, I'm still present and accounted for. I've officially entered my 70th year and am perplexed about how so many years could have passed so quickly, despite the 60s interlude of sex'n drugs'n rock 'n roll.  yikes

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Hadn't posted here before but i'm a crusty old(er) bastard and it has slipped by quicky.

Search for the true meaning of life, religion, party time, hard work, and find out it's 42 with Linux, happy with that! : )

@g33zr you old far...far.. farmer you!  So you're really old, I mean 7.0 what can I say I'm still 6.7 - for a bit longer.  So good to see you.  smile

@ zepher - I think that's wrong, 42 was the answer to life the universe and everything.

But 42 with Linux - now that's a combo I'll bet the mice didn't even think about.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

@ Sector11: You are right, came across the question joining a forum several years back.

Answer being 42, found it amusing and interesting reading. That is the connection with Linux.
