Seconded. And a very insecure, immature prick too if he believes owning better (in his not so humble opinion) machines makes him better than the rest of us.

Ever consider the fact that Caves, unlike Mud-huts are not susceptible to hurricanes and other surface disruptions? They're also far more defensible, warm in winter, cool in summer and come ready built. You can laugh at us poor cave dwellers all you want, but when the winds come and your newfangled mud-hut blows over, then maybe you'll start to understand.

But then, as Robby so eloquently put it, you clearly live under a bridge so the point will be lost on you.

Slackware has served me well both in on my personal machines and on my business machines. If you don't like my choice, I don't give a flying rat's ass.

Please go get stuffed at your earliest convenience.

@Robby

I didn't wade through all of the baloney in this thread, but I did just want to finally say "Hello" from a fellow Alabamian (from Wetumpka). I know Tuscaloosa well. I make my home in England now; you can take the boy out of Alabama, but you can never take Alabama out of the boy.

Sorry that that was off topic. Been meaning to pay my regards to you for a while. But, I will say this: I suppose I will always be somewhat of a newb in Slack, even though I have been using it now for almost five years. The news that there is now a Slackware64 just rejuvinates my ongoing adventure. Whatever crap has been thrown around in this thread, I just wanted you and Alien Bob (and all Slack contributors for that matter) to know that I truly respect your work and I say thank you.

Bob

Very cool! If/when I ever finally visit England, I'll look you up. In the meantime, you should try to meet Fred Emmott - I've met him in person, so there will only be one degree of separation then ;-)

Thanks, Bob - much appreciated!

Give Shingoshi a break, ok?

Yes, the comment was a bit immature, insensitive, and arrogant, but we've ALL been there one time or another in our lives. He may take heed or he may not. Sometimes, maturity takes a few decades...

LOL ... let's try to keep the discussion on subject. Personally, I don't have a need for a multi-librarian and won't use it, but if it eases support for Slackware, then go for it. I continue to use Slackware derivatives because of Pat's excellent foundation laid over the past 15 years or so. I first began using Slackware in version 3.3 ??? Time flies. Finally, as I said in my original post, I understand some of the reasons why Pat likely delayed releasing a 64 bit version until now.

Onward ...

Since both Shingoshi and brianL chose to make no effort at all they'll both face consequences. This thread is closed for now. If anyone has any questions about moderation you're invited to contact me.


[MOD]
This thread has been reopened but please note restrictions remain in place.

For those of you that do not understand what this means for this thread and other threads in this forum: remain respectful of eachothers opinion (even if you object), express your opinion but keep it civilized (basic netiquette, LQ Rules), do discuss things but do try to keep it factual. This is basically a rehash of some of the things in the LQ Rules you agreed to adhere to when you signed up and there are no exclusions regardless of your "status" here or elsewhere.

Now hear this CFB: if you still can't contain yourself and still feel compelled to retalliate, react negatively, off-topic or otherwise not deemed constructive there are only two options: abstain from posting or face the music.
[/MOD]

I think it'll sink to the bottom again. There's not been any input for a couple of days now.

I just posted to give unspawn a gentle nudge that if he intended that ban to be 1 day like it appears he did, he's forgotten to go back and unlock brian. Well, that and the chance to use a line from the Life of Brian. You can't pass up chances like that when they come along.

I have a question, what does it mean "chose to make no effort at all", what kind of reason is that for a ban (if you don't mind me asking, of course) ? I mean I can see why Shingoshi was banned, but why brianL ? If you want, just PM me about it, if it's not appropriate here.

EDIT:
Scouring this thread and looking at the comments, technically, both I and SqdnGuns should have been banned too.

Well, I think I'll just PM unSpawn and we shall discuss it...
