Title: Greetings from a Vector Linux newbie, from Romania!
Post by: Ainvar on May 19, 2007, 09:43:36 am
Hello, my name is Daniel, i am using Vector Linux for almost a year, I am using it in parallel with Windows, to make some things easier :) . I am 19 years old, a student, and I want to learn more about Vector Linux, so I can take the next step, that is the complete moving to linux and saying good-bye to the very expensive Windows OS. If you have any questions about me, feel free to ask.

Welcome to Vector Linux. I tried it in February, and I've booted Windows twice since then. And I think one of those was an accident.

Thanks!:) It's not the first time i've been using linux, but i only used distros like Linspire.. Xandros... Mepis... the beginner's distros :P.
I really really hope I won't return to Windows, it would be a great dissapointment for me...

Hello blurymind! You've got some nice concerts this year in Bulgaria! One of my fav: Placebo :D . Too bad they aren't coming again in Romania :( I wanted to come to Sofia... ONLY IF I HAD THE MONEY!! Darn! :P

I love placebo, but i couldnt go ,because im from plovdiv and didnt have enough money.
I still watched the concert on Tv and it was awesome  ;D  it was followed by a lenghty interview.Man,I wish we still had MM (the bulgarian pop music tv station)- its a payed channel now. =(

All the good stuff come and go to sofia.How come.   :'(

But the concert is on 18 June, i think we're talking about different concerts. I receive MM, i like it too, it's much better than MTV or other stuff... I like Iskamm, it's a great show. Too bad you ain't receiving it  :(

Placebo has come to bulgaria a year or two ago and they had a concert in sofia.
You were talking about a concert that they are about to have, i was talking about what i remember from their previous concert in my country.

Anyways,i'm happy that many famous bands start to come to my country. Now that Romania and Bulgaria are in the EU, hopefully this will make our countries more open to western europe.  :P

The MTV you have there can't be as bad as it is here in the US. Here, it's mostly dreck except when they rerun 'Beavis and Butthead' or show bands like Amon Amarth on Headbanger's Ball.

In France, for example, MTV show videos by Jean-Michel Jarre. Imagine that!

Looks like MTV sucks in everywhere. Here in Argentina we used to see the usa channel, it was bad but ar least we could see what is happening in other places. Now there is a "Latin Edition". It is worst, the last time I checked was just a crap, with lot of silly songs.

I'll take your word for that, but I totally saw Jean-Michel Jarre on French MTV. He's a great musician, and probably nearly as significant an influence in electronic music as Kraftwerk (which is saying a lot).

Oh, I never saw the french version, I just made an induction from two cases, how wrong is that for a logic reader?  :D

Ainvar,

We would welcome translations of the VL documentation into Romanian, if there isn't already a translation. I would suggest sending lagagnon, who oversees our documentation, a private message through the forum. He'll let you know what he needs from there.

Thanks very much for your offer to help! :-)

Cheers,
John

You're welcome :) I will send lagagnon a pm to see if there's help needed :)

Dudes ... you don't get it.  The sucktitude of MTV is like the speed of light, the charge of the electron, the Pauli Exclusion Principle - it's always there, it doesn't change, it doesn't care what nationality you are.  Even back when MTV actually played music videos all day long, it still sucked.

Though I did like this one video jockey named Martha Quinn.

Hi there Ainvar, and welcome.

Seriously though, the music is mostly just commercial trash. I only enjoy stuff like "Celebrity Deathmatch" on MTV. Otherwise it's just one of those channels I zap by real fast.

I recommend you MM (a bulgarian tv station), it's far better than MTV. Or you can just stick with VH1, if you want real music :) I don't see any placebo videos on any of these, i would really watch them more if i would see those:D
