How does one go about downloading Slackware?


Just like the title, I'm interested in using Slackware and I want to know the best site from which to download. I searched the forums and the latest thread I can find dates back to 2007. Thanks ahead of time.

I use my local mirror (the good folks at Oregon State University Open Source Labs) for both ISOs and updates, via ftp:

ftp://ftp-osl.osuosl.org/pub/slackware-iso/
