Glad you're liking it. Honestly I'm surprised it runs with those system specs so bravo in that regard. Also good to see another NC resident on the board. I'm in Hendersonville, just south of Asheville.

I build and maintain the Fluxbox edition and though my time is very limited I do try and get to support questions when I can.
