  1. Wow this website is awesome 🙂

  2. awesome? you mean TOTALLY RADD!!

  3. That’s bitchin.

  4. I have a question:
    How do you find different blogs on Blogger with keyword or search?
    Sincerely,
    142.0.38.73

    —–

    Blog Administrator Edit: It is a worthy question, Q, but probably not one you should ask of a website running WordPress, Blogger’s dreaded arch-rival (joke).

    Additionally, I can find no evidence (given only a few minutes of looking, that is) that Blogger is free software (to be clear, I mean libre, not gratis) or open-source software. What Blogger

      is

    is ‘Software-As-A-Service’, which at least one leading personality in the field of free software decries as being antithetical to the philosophy of software freedom: namely, Richard Stallman.
    Therefore, it kind of lies outside our expertise.
    In contrast, WordPress is open source, free, and available either ‘as a service’ (hosted on

      wordpress.com

    for convenience), but also as a software package installable to any server you own (or have install access to; many website hosting companies offer a preinstalled version of WordPress).

    However, in the interests of helpfulness, try google.com/blogsearch. Example: A screenshot of Google Blog Search with the query 'crunchly', limited to homepages.?

    If you ever have a corporeal form, feel free to stop by the Santa Fe Baking Company on alternate Thursdays; we would love to have you for some conversation and free pastries. If not, you might want to choose a different website to spam.

    Cheers,
    -Arlo

  5. Man, underline really messed up there, not sure why. I do not think I will even try to fix it (guessing comments are not really meant to have rich formatting, judging by the badly-resized image).
    Also I find it interesting that, despite having an apparently what-you-see-is-what-you-mean(t) interface, WordPress turns a double dash/hyphen into an em dash, and turned the first three dots (periods, full stops, yadayadayada) in your description of the ‘C’ output into an ellipsis.

    But anyway, editing that spam comment gave me a chance to read the blog post itself. Fun times! Why did the original Debian install not work?

  6. Yay horns pointing up is always a plus!

  7. Happy New Year!

  8. We are always looking for new-comers who have questions about GNU and Linux and how they can obtain and use this software.

  9. I have been asked to detail the sources for Step 1, where to get an ISO image:
    1B) Debian 9.4 Stretch
    https://www.debian.org/
    https://www.debian.org/distrib/

    Ubuntu 18.0 LTS
    https://www.ubuntu.com/desktop
    https://www.ubuntu.com/desktop [same page, look for “Download” button]

    Xubuntu 18.04
    https://xubuntu.org/
    https://xubuntu.org/download

    PeppermintOS 8
    https://peppermintos.com/
    https://peppermintos.com/ [same page, look for “Download” button]

    Mint 19
    https://linuxmint.com/
    https://linuxmint.com/download.php
    NOTE: This list is not exhaustive, nor does it imply any endorsement or preference for one distribution or another. For those dedicated to truly free software Debian would be preferred. For those new to GNU/Linux and wanting a simpler, graphical interface Ubuntu and the offshoots from it can be a good choice.
    This list omits Fedora (https://getfedora.org/) and FreeBSD, two entirely good and different GNU/Linux families. It also omits several other distributions and subsets. If you or a friend have another “flavor” of GNU/Linux you might want to post a reply. In any case you are free to chose from the many good ‘distros’ out there.
    Again, for beginners, it helps to look at the website, see if you understand any of the discussions or ‘wiki’ pages where questions are answered. It also pays to have a face to face friend or advisor who is also using the same software edition.
    I hope this helps. Thank you, Ted P.
