Hi Palladini,

Believe it or not, I caught one or two of your videos on YouTube before.  Welcome to Peppermint. :)

Most forums are Nut houses, is this one that much different?  I have been using Peppermint for maybe 10 or 12 days now, I have installed Peppermint on friends Laptop and she loves it.  And I will install it on any computer for anybody who does not want to turn their computer running Windows 7 to a Windows 10 Machine

Tom here,

I've loved messing around with computers since Radio Shack COCO days and can't resist rescuing "trash" computers. I take older systems in my spare time and fix them up, install MX or GaliumOS if they are a Chromebook and now Peppermint 10. I then either send them to the Philippines for teachers/kids to use (my wife's niece is a special education teacher and her nieces daughter is a newly graduated English teacher) or give them away to local folks that want something to do word processing and browse.

In addition to my nerdy pursuits I enjoy restoring old Polk Audio Monitor series speakers like Monitor 7's (the best they ever did as far as balance, IMHO). I also enjoy salt water fishing with my wife(who wants to eat anything that comes out of the water:) -have to curb her enthusiasm at times:)) My spouse and I also enjoy cooking(Filipino and other Asian cuisine but also love learning new dishes from other cultures; also big BBQ fans.), and travel when we can.

We have a live in 4 year old grandson that is a joy and a huge challenge; never thought we would be "parents" again at this stage in our lives.

I currently use MX Linux/Antix on some systems but just switched to Peppermint 10 on our main "serious use" desktop.

Looks like you have a nice friendly community here much like the MX forums. I look forward to learning/using Peppermint and appreciate the effort the DEVs put into it.

Welcome zarg2,

MX is indeed a good distro and also has a great Forum.

We hope you will find a good home here.

Sounds delicious!  I, too, am crazy about Asian food, and, lately, I've been wanting to try out some Filipino banana ketchup.  With a little luck I'll get my hands on some one of these days.  ;)

Welcome, zarg2, to Peppermint's fun, friendly, and informative forum. :)

Welcome, zarg2, to Peppermint's fun, friendly, and informative forum. :)

I love banana ketchup on scrambled eggs.it's not unusual for my wife and I to just have rice eggs and hotdog for dinner if we are in the mood. I prefer the "tamis anhang" banana kethup it is spicy hot (anhang) and sweet (tamis), Can you not find it n your area?
 My wife prefers the JFG brand.
The neat thing is it requires no refrigeration and was developed by a female Filipino food chemist.

Filipino cuisine is an interesting mix of local, Chinese, Asian, Spanish and American influence; very creative and as is usual in many cultures many of the really good dishes are the result of poor people not wanting to waste anything.

We can't wait to go visit again and hope to stop in Singapore and Japan sometime.
