Wow. Really?

Postby fsmithred » 2017-05-25 21:05

Can you at least pin it for a few days before letting it sink into oblivion?

Thanks.

Wholeheartedly agreed.

For those who find themselves unsure about what "it" is: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=133246

Keeping this thread alive is a less-than-ideal alternative, but hey, it's something.

As a Slacker that also likes Debian I also think this announcement should be pinned, stuck/stick whatever. Did the OP get thrashed?

Quaint. Nice to see some retro being kept alive. What with the Nokia 3310 and Beckham's Mullett hairstyle seems like 2017 is becoming a year of retro.

Agreed. A few days pinning wouldn't do any harm, right?

That is, I assume that the first Ubuntu release got the same attention and approval and pinning time on this forum.

What would be even better is to put a link to it in your forum signature.

I was going to comment that I didn't think it would sink into "oblivion" all that fast,
There really are not that many new topics started here.

But any way, I notice it got stickied, or "pinned".
Wow, Yes, Really it did, and thank you.

I usually read the forum by clicking on the "view unread posts" so pinning doesn't help me, but I'm not complaining. I read it earlier :D

I was going to download it, but saw that it's 17gigs via torrent. I think I'm going to see what I can find on the mirrors.

I think there is an option to only download what you need from the torrent. But a mirror works too . . .

Yeah, most Torrent programmes will just automatically start every magnet link or torrent file without previously showing you what's in it.

Here's a list of torrent clients enabling "selective downloads".
Debian GNU/Linux 8.9 (jessie)- 32 bit
wm: openbox

If you initiate coercion, force, violence to enforce your idea or theory, or if every single time it is applied to the real world it fails completely, your idea or theory sucks and is worthless.
