You can't just leave that blank?
I think it's optional as long as you enter the captcha.

If in my country it also is less expensive, but let's compare assuming zero incoming calls and 100 outgoing calls per month for each phone, the fix line and the cellular, I would also use it. But I use to travel in plublic transport vehicles. And when one hangs up the other's phone rings. So, you have not a single minute of peace. Also, if the service is now so cheap, it is because of the great number of people who has contracted it. For me, it is one of the greatest examples of a need being invented.

Yes, I just tried it and left it blank. But I now see it's the same [...] as facebook and twiter.

Thumbs up Update on the growth of the community...

In the wee hours of this morning, the community broke the 500 member mark.

It appears to be growing and evolving in way that people often communicate around a coffee house firepit, singing koombaya songs and sharing anectdotal items of interest to fellow songsters and latte lovers.

I know that for me, I never expected to be apprised and alerted to so many options and tools and other items of interest in the Slackware community.

To be sure (and thankfully so), the G+ Slackware Linux Community has not developed as yet another help site, or forum for tutorial and howto documentation, but rather, a friendly sort of place where people share their experiences, development projects, and humorous anecdotes about Slackware.

Yes we get some of that here, but the visual element involved and the "wall" type display of items that folks are sharing with each other is unique - irrespective of the capabilities that places like faceplant or Linkedin groups try to afford their users.

I think it's evolving into a truly cooperative sharing environment of ideas and resources that serves to strengthen the bond of Slackers everywhere.

I'll prolly report back again when the community's membership hits the 1k mark. In teh meantime, checkout some of the kewl things that others have shared with us all - you don't even have to join to check it out!

Kindest regards,

.

Thumbs up Wonderful news! We now have *eleven* members!!! :)

Hey all,

I thought that I would report back on the shape of things in our little sister community at Google Plus.

Great news! Membership in the Google Plus Slackware Linux Community has now grown to that of Eleven Members!

Hooray!!!

Wait... um... Pardon my binary. That's 1011 members LOL!

Yup. We've crossed some imaginary threshold at 1000 and the community has matured in many ways, including its own candor, decorum, and usefulness that I believe compliments our LQ Support Forum here in ways that may be better addressed in an environment perhaps better suited for sharing, rather than solving.

Of course, when you're in a fix, The LQ Slackware Support Forums here really are the place to land your plane, but when you have something to share, or show and tell, our G+ Slackware Linux Community augments the world of Slackers quite nicely IMNSHO

Anyway, I had been waiting for a while to give this thread a bump. The 1k mark is indeed another indicator of utility, and relevance. One I felt should be shared here again.

The G+ Slackware Linux Community has grown organically, and started with an announcement here and a few invites. I know most members have refrained from SPAMming, although anyone interested in Slackware Linux is encouraged to participate.

We've had a couple of folks show up thinking they could SPAM us, a couple of them with some interesting stuff, yet those posts are typically whacked rather promptly, as the community has preferred a rather familial, and on-topic feel.

Anyway, please pardon me, I know I'm a loquacious sort of bonehead, and I'll leave the rest of the meandering to my fellow LQ veterans and neophytes alike.

Kindest regards,
