Code:
echo "ibase=16; 35" | bc
Ranted at too many systems and OS until I loaded Slackware-3 onto my AMD486-DX100 [I didn't have enough floppies and my modem was 14.4k, so a friend (Slackware? wazzat?) burned the CD image after d/l at 56K]. Switched completely with 10 and SLAMD64.

So glad there are a bunch here of my "seniority!"

Dang, kids, this is what's going to happen to you! That's what old people are for -- so you'll know what you've got to look forward to! I can remember stuff from 50 years ago but the last five minutes is all a blur.

Ok, since we have a good bit of age information let us shift this poll to "hotest females using slackware" -- submit photos to post, now!

Talking

Born in February 1961 makes me now 52
I started in mathematics on unix, vax cms, tso
languages then algol68, apl, c
I started using slackware with the 13 series; before that used zenwalk,ubuntu around 2007 with linux;
my dark ages from 1991-till-2007 the other OS

Great to see that I am not alone in this age

Been slacking since way before Slackware was on OS.

First Slackware install was November 08. I was using Slax before that a while.

My 3yo grandson started out with an XO but now prefers Potato Guy on my desktop, can find it in the menu too! No, I didn't add a vote for him.
