[21:19:55] <Bytram> hmm
[21:20:01] <Bytram> hmm?
[21:20:11] <Bytram> better?
[21:21:45] <cmn32480> depends... what'd you break?
[21:22:35] <Bytram> I dunno... for a moment there, I had THREE instances of hexchat running at once
[21:22:41] * Bytram definitely needs a new mouse
[21:23:06] <cmn32480> silly bytram
[21:23:07] <Bytram> correction... I have multiple 'mouses' -- I should prolly dig out another one and plug it in!
[21:23:17] <cmn32480> that'd be a good idea
[21:23:22] <Bytram> silly rabbit, trix are for kids!
[21:24:17] <cmn32480> hehehe
[21:24:38] <cmn32480> you want GIMP or any other big programs installed
[21:25:03] <cmn32480> by big I mean download size
[21:25:50] <Bytram> I've got recent-enough versions of anything that i run with... I think I'm okay at this point.
[21:25:55] <Bytram> I *do* apprecaite the offer!
[21:26:21] <Bytram> I've got a whole tree of files I've D/Led over the years; different subdirs for different versions.
[21:26:35] <Bytram> so, as time goes by... well... holdon a sec
[21:27:11] <Bytram> here's an example:
[21:27:14] <Bytram> 07/04/2015 17:26:48 C:\downloads\VLC>dir
[21:27:14] <Bytram> Volume in drive C has no label.
[21:27:14] <Bytram> Volume Serial Number is 75A1-75BE
[21:27:14] <Bytram> Directory of C:\downloads\VLC
[21:27:14] <Bytram> 06/14/2015 05:39 PM <DIR> .
[21:27:15] <Bytram> 06/14/2015 05:39 PM <DIR> ..
[21:27:17] <Bytram> 07/27/2013 09:05 PM <DIR> v2.0.7
[21:27:19] <Bytram> 09/25/2013 11:19 AM <DIR> v2.0.8
[21:27:21] <Bytram> 09/26/2013 05:09 PM <DIR> v2.1.0
[21:27:23] <Bytram> 01/21/2014 02:11 PM <DIR> v2.1.2
[21:27:25] <Bytram> 06/14/2015 06:21 PM <DIR> v2.2.1
[21:27:27] <Bytram> 0 File(s) 0 bytes
[21:27:29] <Bytram> 7 Dir(s) 4,532,838,400 bytes free
[21:27:31] <Bytram> 07/04/2015 17:26:49 C:\downloads\VLC>
[21:27:58] <Bytram> so, having something else D/Led independently would makeit a bit awkward to keep track of things
[21:28:36] <cmn32480> ok
[21:28:36] <Bytram> I just looked; I've got over 330 dirs under my main D/L dir!
[21:28:51] <cmn32480> I can leave you the installers for anythign that you want
[21:29:15] <Bytram> so, for the most part, I should just be able to copy over from my backups into an identical D/L dir; install from there, and be mostly good to go.
[21:29:25] <cmn32480> okie dokie
[21:30:01] <Bytram> only fly in the ointment, so to write/speak, is the different settings and so forth for things like thunderbird, pale moon, and the like
[21:30:18] <Bytram> words added to dictionaries, for example
[21:30:50] * Bytram wishes there was no such thing as the windows registry... can no longer just tar up a dir and drop it someplace else
[21:31:07] * Bytram listens to the whir of the chainsaw
[21:31:34] <Bytram> a neighbor dropped a tree at about 0800 today, and has been cutting it up pretty much the rest of the day.
