@melmarker, good point my bag.  :-[
@tommy2:
"my bag"???? . . . (note the ellipsis) . . . here in the states we say, "my baD" . . . when we make an error . . . .  "My bag" refers to something that we do . . . like "my bag is the over-use of ellipses . . . ."  That kind of thing . . . .  : - )))))

  • we are the priests ... of the temples of syrinx
When I make an error, I say shit or fuck, sometimes I might even curse.

No need for leaving "X" anymore
"We're all grown up and don't freak out when a piece of text contains the word 'fuck'. I still don't understand why people think that the word 'fuck' is what would keep certain groups from contributing to the Linux kernel. In all seriousness, it doesn't."

@piper:
#MeToo . . . I rarely say, "my bad" or "my bag" . . . I also curse openly . . . .
OK, thanks for that data about not needing to leave "X" . . . so it's more or less "normal" . . . which is good.
So, now the only "unknown" for me is the IRC channel connection . . . it's been years since I have used IRC.  I looked around on the manual to try to find the "how to" . . . nothing seemed to be relevant.  I **did** see the "IRC" launcher in the siduction live iso when I booted it up, but I don't know whether I can "burn" an iso from the usb flash drive I'm booted in . . . to another flash drive that I don't have at this point??  I don't know what is entailed in asking for the latest or newer spin of siduction . . . an iso file to to download, a link to a "wget"??
Haven't had time to reboot into the siduction drive I have now to check what shows up when using the Siduction IRC app, but I've been in Lu 19 and that has "Quassel IRC" app, which seems to be pre-set up to connect to the Lubuntu channel . . . I found the "irc.oftc.net" on port 6667 . . . but it's then asking for a password . . . which I don't know what that might be??  siducer??? siduction???  just plain "sid"??  "live"??
eep

you are right, the manual is a bit outdated, but we are working on it

re: apt vs apt-get - in short: apt-get has a stable interface and should be used in scripts, apt has a nicer user interface and should not be used in scripts, beside of that the main and really important difference for sid users is

apt upgrade == apt-get upgrade --install-new-pkgs + some fancy styles in progress

 not installing new packages within the upgrade process is a loaded gun pointing to one or both feets - and it will fire sooner or later (hmm - sooner, in moments when one absolutely not aware of and don't have time to react)  Murphy's law in action. So in the worst case the bullets hit the head instead of both feets - because all is possible.

One can do several things with the iso: Burning it to a DVD or use dd to put it on a stick - it doesn't matter, it is a hybrid iso.
