Slackie patch

Ever since I've scrounged up a new box, I've been on pins and needles waiting for Slackware 13.0 to launch. And the day is here! This release is a landmark in Slackware history. We can officially dance in the streets now!

Torrent, torrents, torrent!

The Torrents are torrenting!

And by the way, yes, this blog's formatting still needs a little work. If you see a post with multiple comments, they're all run together like a pileup on a Los Angeles freeway. I'm still working on that. It's been busy. This year for me has been new home, new site design, new computer, new philosophy... this is exhausting, but worth it. But I'll blabber more on what on the blog gets moved where in its own post.

Hack the Slack!

Update I have yet to install this on the new box. The new computer is literally at my elbow, reproaching me with its black, square stare as it waits for me to move into it. All I have to do is one minor hardware tweak and then install the system - I have Slackware 13.0 disks already burned. I've just been so busy!

I can tell you this much, though: I already know that Slackware 13.0 is going to be the most awesome Slackware ever. How do I know this? Because the LXer gang hates it. Check the comments they're leaving on any story there referring to Slackware. When the web's oldest den of trolls does that much carping about a distro, I know it's going to be EPIC, ELITE, and AWESOME!

Apparently, the nexus of the complaints revolve around Slackware's upgrading to KDE4. Snub, snif, blub, buh-hoo-hoo-hoo! What do I care; I run Fluxbox anyway?

Update More Slackware news comes out, and yet more flaming trolls in the comments. Two guesses which state (it rhymes with hexes) it all comes from. Slackware is now targeted for asstroturf by the Linux carpetbaggers as much as Microsoft targets Linux.
