Just thought I would reintroduce myself. It sure has been awhile since I was here. Lets see, I am a chick, 35 years old. Use to run an IRC net but grew up and got tired of the script kiddies! Still run Gentoo Linux on one box. Love Music and Movies! Saw Super 8 last nite and it was epic. Like all things geeky! I am socially awkward and generally don't like people [Big Grin] Anything else you want to know just Ask!

Greetings, Twinkles! [Smile]

So...does Gentoo still require 5 years to upgrade? [Wink]

hi Twinkies! or perhaps welcome back?

As a fellow gentoo user I must come to the defense of the One True Operating System.

dragonman: NO, it doesn't take 5 years to upgrade! I'm sick and tired of gentoo getting all this bad press!! With modern processors it's not such a big deal to compile everything and there's a few -bin packages for the big stuff, like OO.o and Firefox.

Be reasonable, dman! It only takes about 2 years to do a full "emerge -uDav world" upgrade, then another year to run through "etc-update" and update the files in /etc, and only another year to fix the packages that broke in the upgrade. So, in all, it's only 4 years to do an upgrade! Sheesh!

Hiya there Twinkies!

Still lurking around here, though I have fallen victim of the thing called Facebook.
