I will have to run it down then. Perhaps some extension I have enabled. Very unusual as I have not seen that before on any public sites.


EDIT:
It was because I had my VPN activated. When I disable it I have access. More precisely the address my VPN is using is being blocked by Debian. They apparently use a spam blocker, and spam has come from that address. Not me.
We have experienced this occasionally with Forum registrations with people using VPN's

Hi Stevo,
the thing that I think is silly about Manjaro is all of the nonstop updates. I realized at some point that I have a computer to get work done, and keeping the OS at the bleeding edge is not work that I'm interested in doing. I got bigger fish to fry.
My primary laptop is Manjaro based, and honestly the stable branch gets on average one update a week. The testing gets 2 or 3 update4s a week and the unstable branch gets daily updates. I personally run the stable branch and haven't run into updates happening so often I am unable to get work done. If you are / were on the unstable branch you could just setup a crom job to update after hours nightly.

With all that said, I am looking forward to an official KDE version of MX, MX is the Debian based distro I use.

There may be an unofficial KDE respin by one or more of the developers, that's about it for now.

Maybe. I know I'm in the forum; maybe in the Wiki.

My principal Manjaro complaint was killing the 32 bit release.
I like to run the same version on all hardware I install.
Kinda lost interest when I heard they would drop it.
Still lots of 32 bit boxes around here.

My torrent log shows MX 32 bit up loads at about 60% of the 64 bit, so there is still plenty of interest in 32.

And with so many major distros dropping support for 32 bit, I imagine it will continue.
In Venezuela, most of the computer stores have gone broke, no few new equipment.
WinXP is still strong with Win7 close behind and some Win8. (just MHO)
Many try to run Win10 on old hardware and it fails to please.
Remember, one can pick up a DVD of whatever you want in kiosks and markets.

That's right. I keep data for SourceForge and LinuxTracker, and there the overall percentages for MX-17x are roughly 2:1:

386 = 20,879 = 37%
x64 = 56,007 = 63%
