          @chika: consider it happy harmless posting, plus I could always bribe you with brownies to get you to do it 😀
          @mona: I sort of thought you might like doing it, lists and all
          @LifeGeeked: it was fun, I managed to it was Slackware I think an ancient distro and you would get this warning to check your CRT frequency so it wouldn’t blow up or something.

              Fashar ya Nerro don’t say that. It was fun and interesting at the time. I am not sure what that says about my social life at the time though

                Well… installing slackware… hats off 😀
                it is one of the distros that need configuring 😀
                for example nowadays, installing ubuntu is easier than installing windows 😀

                Respects to you 😛

                  You have no idea, I actually had to buy a new “real” hardware modem at the time. And getting X windows to work took a week. People who install Linux for the first time today have no idea how things have changed or how much work has gone into it. 😀
