Why not consider a subscription? I've got one, and every time there is a new release, it automagically appears in my mailbox. It's cheaper than ordering each release separately as it comes out, and it demonstrates your continuing support for Slackware.

Hey, you know you're going to want it anyway.

Yes, this is my first subscription, and it will be my first real Slackware installation, too. How long does it take to receive it? (I do see that you're in Germany.)

I ordered my subscription when the 11.0 pre-ordering started, back in March or April.

Woo! I downloaded it last night and am currently burning it to disks. I'm thinking about buying a DVD/book combo from the store though.

I agree, this must be the best option, i'm a suscriber too. Of course, i'm downloading with bittorent (seeding now) and keeping an eye on my mailbox

I've never timed it, so I can't really tell you how long it takes. Also, I am in Germany, but I get my subscription through the APO system. So, it is like domestic mail service, just a couple of days longer.

Never done before

Could someone tell me please, how do I put to use those .asc files?
I have done checksums with md5 and sha1 but not with asc, how to use them?

I have a 1500kbps connection, and I've been ranging only 20 to 100 kbps on the DVD torrent since midnight when I started it up. Yes, I have the bittorrent ports unblocked at my router.

I'd love to get a faster download. I have no idea why my torrent download is so terribly slow, when normal downloads generally go blazingly fast (depending on the download site, typically, and generally not limited by my connection bandwidth).

Code:
$ gpg --verify slackware-11.0-install-d1.iso.asc
gpg: Signature made Mon 02 Oct 2006 04:10:33 AM CDT using DSA key ID 40102233
gpg: Good signature from "Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>"
For this you needs Slackware's GPG key at http://slackware.com/gpg-key .
