[bro@notyourbro ~]$ 

(inxi posted, just to follow the rules)

I'm Bro, the forum member formerly known as @Bro. (If Prince can do it...)

I'm So tired of c00ter. c00ter has gotten too old. So I re-installed Arch with a different user/hos tnames--it's now bro@notyourbro--passwords, etc.

I was forced into doing so. @SGS artwork made me do it.

Moderators/Database maintainers, please do what you need to with old, old @Bro (that's legal).

Regards to all!


Great to have you here Bro :sunglasses: welcome (back?)!


I love how every post containing br* gets flagged by Discourse for manual reviewing haha :joy:


Welcome back to garuda team @Bro-c00ter :grin:


Not that they shouldn't be. :wink:


If you can’t change your name in the profile @Bro to @Bro-c00ter,
I can :slight_smile:
then change the avatar, done.
This will keep your history including the date you joined the forum.


I don't approve of this. Who decided "change" was a good thing, hmmm? I am sending a box of mixed curses, each individually wrapped in decorative foil, to @SGS for the handiwork of inspiring and encouraging. Bah! I miss our old @Bro already ...the old emoji guy...with his tiny guitar. :cry: :sob:

This is some kind of late-life crisis tomfoolery...BRO!?! I can't even type that with a straight face. You will be missed @Bro, RIP!! :disappointed_relieved:

P/S: Putting this in the Garuda suggestion box.... Can we use the @Bro as a Garuda trauma emoji? Bring it out for newbies and ask, "where on this emoji did Microsoft hurt you?"


I’ll give it a try. Never thought of something that simple.

I’ll let you know. Thanks!


Please do so at your convenience. I could not. I’ll stay logged out of both accounts for a few hours…dunno what your Friday evening schedule is like. :slight_smile:


Done @Bro
Change the avatar :slight_smile: : Done, too.


@SGS, anytime you need your lawn raked, your grass mowed...



Hi @Bro-c00ter or Bro,

Nice to see you're still around, albeit with a different name. Hope you are in good health.

Had to revisit the forum during the issue with the chaotic-aur repo to find out what the problem was (my old KDE-Lite VM is still running fine), and am now occasionally lurking when I have time.

Still no point for me to install Garuda on real metal as my Anarchy and Artix installs are very much alive and kicking. Only update to that is that I finally checked out the arch-installer in VM a year ago for fun, and I like it. Though I think the Anarchy text installer is still better. :wink:

[EDITED] OK, looks like I should tag you as @Bro now, not Bro-c00ter.


It just got drawn to my attention!

Welcome back @Bro :smile:


Hey @wongs!

It's so good to see you. Been awhile. :smiley:

Yeah, every distribution has its pluses and minuses. At the end of the day, though, Garuda checks off most of the bells 'n' whistles.

I do like playing with archinstall, I do. It's interesting to see the fairly rapid development of it. I like using the GitHub vers. to do so. Hey, if you add the "--advanced" flag, it even gets better. :wink:

Yeah, I, and a large share of Linux forum members detest the appellation "bro" i have learned, so I got a wild hair thinking I could somehow subvert the usage after seeing a Bro avatar/icon that SGS had already created.

Good to see you again! I hope everything is well with you and yours. :slight_smile:
