Greetings old #!

Team Bunsen,

I do not have the skills to contribute in any meaningful way but man am I happy you are here.  I've been out of linux for a while.  Simply do not have the time to tweak and fix with a family - something about other humans needing my attention.

The old #! was my daily driver.  I have fond memories of trying to tweak Conky and just learning to rely more on the keyboard.  Now that my sons are older, I have time to disappear for hours on end - life is good.   

Just installed this on my old ZaReason desktop that has not been turned on since 2014.  It hums.  I will upload on my new System76 meerkat here in a few days once received. 

Now, back to my own lab I go trying to re-learn how to navigate openbox and tweak a few things to my liking.

Do you have a swag shop?  Love to get a few things and start supporting the community in small ways. 

Thanks again...just feels good to be in the lab.

Warmly,
JP

Welcome home smile

Lots of the old crunchbangers are still here, as you may have noticed.

Re: Greetings old #!

Hi - just discovered you last night, literally.  I have an old ZaReason strata laptop with Manjaro KDE but really missed the feel of #!.  For whatever reason, just started looking for openbox distros and you guys rose to the top the second I read it was a continuation of the old #! effort.  Not disappointing.  It seems to have gotten more user firendly - auto-updates even. 

Hopefully the forums are as kind and friendly - especially to non-tech linux types such as myself.  That was always a highlight of the old #! forums. 

Thanks,
JP

Thanks!  Actually, just added Bunsen to my daily laptop.  I'll be in the lab ALL day.  Nice.

Re: Greetings old #!

ditto what damo said:  Welcome home.

EDIT: aaaaand ninja'd by John.

Anyway, you're home now ... wander around the halls, help yourself to a coffee in the coffee room and we have 2 music rooms one for regular music and one for regular metal music.

Enjoy.
