New Master Class LIVE series for Peppermint OS 8 Respin
« on: April 03, 2018, 01:27:16 pm »
 English Bob has started Live Streaming new series "Peppermint OS Master Class LIVE for Beginners  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_Px05z8CaU&t=106s
  which should be of interest to all new Peppermint users.  Also more exposure for Peppermint and, as pointed out in video, Distrowatch ratings mean nothing in terms of actual quantity of users for a particular distro.

Thanks DenW,

His "Static" Masterclass on Peppermint is better.  Less chance of him making mistakes and a VM is never the best place to demo stuff IMHO.

But EB does shout loud and hard for Peppermint :D

Yes I agree his static Master Class videos are a quicker watch but I think you can also learn from the live stream comments (including yours!) and even the "mistakes".  He is doing a second live stream in the series tomorrow. Agreed VM install not as good as bare metal.

I can't understand much of what he says.  You'd think that with a name like English Bob he'd speak English.........Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!  Go USA.

Other than that, great job! 

cheers

I've never understood why Americans have such trouble understanding Englishmen .. maybe we're just more accustomed to widely varying accents (?)

Which is something else that always amazes me, the US is massive but basically has 2 accents with some minor variations, little old England is tiny but has loads of very different accents :-\

I guess the big problem is my aging ears....can't pick up on unfamiliar sounds (or is that my aging mind?).
What really bugs me is that I can't even understand British print.  Ha!     :P

Bwahahaha :))

Is it the use of "S's" instead of "Zed's" and the colours ?

I have the same problem, Mac  :)

I learned to use Closed Caption(ing) AKA 'CC' when watching UK movies, TV series, and so forth.

YT has 'CC' available on most videos - UK or otherwise. Just click the ... CC button (bottom-right panel)

LOL .. It's like you Americans think we speak a foreign language or sommink ???

Good job forums are text based because I'm from just up the road a bit from EB .. West Midlands, and if you have trouble with his accent you'd think someone with a Black Country accent was from another planet :)
(heck even other Brits take the p*ss outa our accent)

Part of it is your idioms. Even if we understand them - we don't know what they mean.

Bwahahahaha! Remember me telling you that I got a 1-month 'timeout' in the Ubu Forums, for calling someone a toilet hugger?  :D
