where was Spatry, so went looking
« on: August 26, 2018, 03:39:15 PM »
Hi, I'm Spearmint 2 also at Mint forums. Hadn't seen videos on youtube for awhile by Spatry so decided to check on where he'd gone. Found him here. I always enjoyed the videos by him, Nixie Pixel, Infinitely Galatic and some others. Hope he returns to Youtube soon.

Welcome to the community and thanks for supporting us! I am coming back in 1080p VERY SOON. Just waiting in my shiny NEW SSD to arrive so I can squeeze more power out of this workstation. I expect to have episodes rolling out at least once a week starting the first or second week of September!

Glad to hear that, as no doubt other Youtube viewers who liked your videos will too.

Welcome to the community, Spearmint2! We need more variety here since everyone has been <sigh> brainwashed by Spatry's endorsement of Manjaro... Oh well... ALL Linux users are welcome here except for SPATRY... That nincompoop still has not rolled out a "Dirty Helga" edition of Ubuntu for me and I am tired of holding my breath while awaiting that! <Chortle>

If I have time tomorrow, I will force Helga to assist me with a 1080p video test and throw up an announcement on YTube. I am excited about this as is everyone else!

I wonder how shocked people will be! I looked at the comments of your last video, and people want you back, so I'll be very excited to see this happen!

There was a Manjaro thread on Mint forums which peaked my interest to find out what was up with Spatry since I remembered from his youtube videos that it was maybe his favorite distro.

So, I found this forum and read he needed some new equipment, and some problem he'd run into at Youtube, and some disagreeable person. Decided to toss some bucks his way to help out.
There are many Linux videos on youtube, but also too many of them are, to be quite honest, poorly done. They either have just music added to someone flitting around on his screen exposing parts of a distro, to those who seem to like the sound of their own voice too much, giving long, unrehearsed, rambling, lacking direction and often mind numbingly boring ones.
Spatry however always had some of the best.

I was quite afraid to find out what happened with Spatry, as he disappeared some time ago from youtube.
The moment I saw the video notification on my phone with familiar thumbnail, my heart was overfilled with joy :D

Glad to see Spatry alive and well, and I am looking forward for more content 8)

If you cannot see the video display, fraterchaos, look on your browsers bar and there should be a tiny icon which will allow you to display elements which are NOT secure on this site... SSL blocks elements which are not using HTTPS

for some odd reason, the video is displaying in Spearmint's last reply, but nowhere else...

I'm not sure if I have that little icon anywhere, using firefox, latest edition, and I don't see anything like that, unless you are referring to something here on the site?

Read the SSL message on the front page (home button)... Your browser should give you an option to display non-secure elements.
