The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that Slackware has disappeared from my desktop. Don't panic! I haven't abandoned my favourite distro. I'm planning on getting a new box: one with more WUMPH!, KAPOW!, and ZZZAPPP!! (More HDD capacity, RAM, and a faster/multicore processor, etc). So I'm going back to doing a bit of distrohopping on my present one, because it's about a couple of years since I indulged in that pursuit. There's newer versions of distros I've tried before, and some not yet...

When is a blog a forum subject

Posted 03-06-2009 at 09:45 AM by Patrick-Warwick

Reading the first few blogs on the blog page for the first time I thought, correct me if I am wrong somebody, surely these are forum matters rather than comments about - well anything Linux - or Microsoft - or Mac - or any subject under the sun.

I am not a blogger or reader of blogs apart from those by political reporters and economical analysts etc. However I did read something that might be worthy of comment - or blog.

A couple of days ago the BBC reported on their...
