@georgedial welcome! Looks like you will fit right in here! 😊
@kev Thank you!
I've actually been working through the vim tutor and started testing evil-mode. I rely on ledger-mode and org-mode so jumping straight to vim could be tough. I'm relatively new to i3 but really like it. Just a couple issues I need to work through.
@DistroJunkie Thank you!
@georgedial Welcome aboard. I share a similar background. Started Linux installin from Slackware floppies. Have also settled into Arch, i3 and emacs. I'm sure you'll find something to pique your interest, here.
@georgedial Welcome. This instance seems to be attracting people from a similar background. Perhaps we should explain to the youngsters what a floppy disk was.🙂
We could try to explain what a floppy was to the youngsters but I'm not sure they could wrap their heads around a storage media that couldn't hold a single image from a current DSLR. ;-)
Interesting point - I was recently handed 4 floppies from 2000 with image files on them to try and recover. Bought an eSYNiC USB floppy drive, plugged it in and recovered all the images. No issues.
@georgedial welcome! Linux here since slackware too. And also i3 & Emacs.
@georgedial Welcome to the Fediverse!
I download Slackware over a dial-up connection back in 1998 to a dozen floppies. I had no X, because my video card wasn't supported, but it was fun. 😆
