HAHA! You typed up my Welcome while I was typing my intro post here. ;)

Nah... that would be Josh (SecurityBreach) and some others from Scot's. Hopefully, we'll get them over here pretty soon. :)

Meet & Greet! / Hello, Friends!

Greetings Landzdowners...

I'm new here.... sort of. Even though I have never signed in here before, I have followed many items on this forum in the past. The time has come, though, for me to come out of the shadows...

My name is V. T. Eric Layton. I'm a refugee, one of a few who will probably be popping up here soon, from Scot's Newsletter Forums. I am an Admin there, for the time being. 

I'm not too techie or interested in computers and computering as much as I was in times past. I've gotten old. Nowadays, I'm just happy that the soul-sucking box here on my desk actually came on when I pressed that button in front.

My actual career field in my younger days was electronics service (component level) on RF Communications and Audio equipment (commercial and consumer). As many of you may know, that career field went the way of the Dodo quite a few years ago. These days, I'm semi-retired (sans income).

You'll find this out eventually, but I'm not a big fan of MS Windows. I'll try to be nice. ;) I've run Slackware Linux for nearly 20 years now, so if anyone has any Linux issues, I may be able to help out a bit.

Anyway, it's nice to be here. Thanks to Corrine for the invitation. I'm going to suggest that other folks from Scot's come this way, too. We're looking for a place where we can still keep in touch on a regular basis. Of course, making new friends will be good, too. :)

Have a great day!

Regards,

~Eric

Please join me in welcoming a long-time friend and one of the Admins at Scot's Newsletter Forum (SNF).  I met Eric at SNF 18 years ago. 

If you have Linux questions, Eric is the one to ask.

That's great that some development activity is taking place, but I feel it is too bad they didn't wait until they could say it work with Windows 11 too.

I mean the last full official (non-beta, non-alpha) release was with V19.00 back in February 2019. That's nearly 3 years ago! What's another couple months to ensure it works with W11 now that it is officially out and most new computers are coming with W11, or will soon be upgraded to it?

Oh well. Like I said, it is good to see development is still on-going.
