It's time to say you about my modestly slackware mirror located on Bulgaria, Gabrovo. I know that the most people uses slackbuilds, but there are people that don't know how to use it. From the other side I upload packages that I need and if I make clean installation I can just download all with wget and install them easy and faster.

I am a KDE fan. Besides the eye-candy, I love the KDE apps. They are much better at functionality than their Gnome counterparts, e.g-> Brasero in Gnome has caused a lot of burn failures, whereas K3b is just perfect.
