I have mine updated. Here is the profile: https://www.linuxcou...net/user/363317

I haven't been able to share my specs on my profile here because of some bug that hides some of my profile parts, so now I  get to share my impressive computers.

Haven't heard back yet. Resetting password won't work as I think I have an old account where my ID isn't listed properly.

It's been years since I updated. The latest script wanted me to delete my machine and enter a new one, but I went into ~/.linuxcounter/ and edited the file for my machine to include my old "machine_id" and "machine_updatekey" values. Once I did that, the lico-update.sh script updated my machine without a problem.

Thanks for the reminder. Nothing much has changed for me, so I didn't have to edit anything. Mine still shows ericsbane06 (my most recent main system) as being active, but it's not. It's still complete and working, but it's on the shelf out in the shop. Current machines are: ericsbane07 (main) and ericsshop02-wifi (shop). No working lappies these days.

Well you have to also look at their traffic in the last few years. Archlinux has been around since 2007 but the flood of new users has only happened in the last 5 years or so.

Thanks for the reminder. Nothing changed but at least the password set in 2015 still worked. I logged in in 2016 to add an android tablet.
