BunsenLabs quotes

In the spirit of ohnonot's crunchbang fortune package ftw!-thread, lets collect here the gems that appear in BL forums.

Collection of quotes

User ohnonot maintains a collection of Crunchbang and Bunsenlabs related quotes at
https://framagit.org/ohnonot and
https://notabug.org/ohnonot/fortune-mod-cbbl
Collection can be used with fortune program. Read instructions on notabug page.

Rules for adding new quotes:

  • must come from BL or crunchbang forum (we'd love some more #! forum items!)

  • must work out of context

  • must be original, meaning it must not be another person's re-quote.

  • must be family friendly or safe for work or whatever that's usually called - but since BL forum is family friendly anyhow that goes without saying. And don't take this too strictly wink

  • don't abuse this to glorify yourself or push some agenda; think of the BL users actually reading this when they log into their system. If in doubt it often helps to wait 24h, then think again.

It does not have to be a joke, It can be quoteworthy for many reasons. Feel free, we add what you want, not what this repo's maintainer wants!

--------------------------------------

I'm very much in favor of snappy, sharp one-liners (in awebb style), but today bronto's lengthy explanation caught my eye:
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic … 8029#p8029

brontosaurusrex wrote:

About the xy problem, quoting

User doesn't know how to do X, but thinks they can fumble their way to a solution if they can just manage to do Y.

I don't really find that particularity interesting or funny, I would call that the default human behavior and the solution (when found) will:
- prevent future me to behave in the same way, so in itself is a (long-term) solution.
- doing Y did a lot of important discoveries (where X was declared uninteresting at the end)
- doing Y will/may raise common know-how
- doing Y will prevent dogmatic (single book) behaviors
- the direct solution to X (generally accepted dogma) may be so stupid, that it actually needs a better way with Y in between
- I could find a lot more here

Conclusion: xy problem does need a rewrite, since it misses the actual problem, heh tongue

By the way, ohnonot, how's the fortune package doing?

Wasn't there a signature similar to this at the CrunchBang forum?
EDIT:  Ah yes, it was in unia's signature and attributed to Carlos Torres.  Still a good quote though.

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

i am right now in the process of revamping the fortune-mod-crunchbang repo.
question is, should we just continue letting it grow or should we make a seperate forune-mod-bunsenlabs package?
imho, i could rename the current repo (e.g. fortune-mod-bl-cb) and continue letting it grow.

PS:
is it possible to let other users contribute directly to the (any, really) git repo, in a way that i have to approve them only the first time, after which they can continue contributing freely?

personally, i'd like to go ahead with the new combined bl-cb fortunes.  glasses

I guess it's up to you as the maintainer to decide, where you want to go with the CB fortune. I'd vote for separate packs, because CrunchBang forum was another time, another place in cyberspace.

pvsage, I suppose you are thinking about a quote that hase been going around at least in Arch and CB forums inside Unias's signature: "If you can't sit by a cozy fire with your code in hand enjoying its simplicity and clarity, it ne"eds more work. --Carlos Torres"

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

All right, for lack of opinion i just went ahead and combined the crunchbang fortune repo with bunsenlabs cookies, and called it:

https://github.com/ohnonot/fortune-mod-cbbl

it doesn't roll off the tongue as nicely, but it's less typing  angel

i added the cookies from this thread plus this one  big_smile

keep 'em coming, both from here or if you find more gems on the old crunchbang forums!

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

i added a few more cookies; not much, still each and every input is appreciated (anybody still visit crunchbang.org/forums?).

check it out - i renamed it to fortune-mod-cbbl (the link to the old name still works - the repo is the same, one can rename repos on github).
