Anybody interested may re-use what I wrote in this thread. I give it to the public domain and don't care to be credited for that small thing.

Woodsman! I did not realize that this was your site. I've been visiting and linking to information on your site for years; an excellent resource, indeed. Thank you for your help with this project and for allowing us to utilize data on your site. I will make sure credit goes where credit is due.

Regards,

~Eric

P.S. I like your favicon.

All I ask is any article used is credited to me as the original author.
Thanks, Woodsman. You certainly will get credited as the original author.

Thanks, Didier. You'll get credit too, whether you want it or not.

By the end of the year I expect either to shut down the web site or overhaul with a serious reduction. So grab now while you can.
Hey, I had this website bookmarked already and didn't even know it was you, the author. Great resource. Much thanks for that.
Just asking, why the sudden shut down?

Regards.

Sudden to you, not sudden to me.... Been thinking about the change for a while --- life style changes.

Me, too! It has been around for quite a while and was always very useful.

May I join the others in thanking you for that resource: Thanks!

Currently, almost all entries when referring to an app on SBo use links like this:

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...ktop/i3status/

IMHO, it's better to use version-agnostic links like this:

http://slackbuilds.org/desktop/i3status/

Then, for example, in howtos regarding a step-by-step solution, an added step might be necessary that tell users to go to the page appropriate to the Slackware version they're using.

This way, authors do not need to edit the page when a new Slackware version comes.

Perhaps with a different purpose to Woodsman I will be unplugging from the computer world a little, perhaps taking a 2 year break from some of my online activities. I am a little too lazy to write up the following as wiki articles but perhaps some might be interested in using the following for the new slackware wiki:

Using Mutt with Gmail
http://www.andrews-corner.org/mutt.html

Slackware 13.37 and Leafnode-2
http://www.andrews-corner.org/leafnode.html

CD and DVD Writing from the Linux Command Line
http://www.andrews-corner.org/burning.html

abcde: Command Line Music CD Ripping for Linux
http://www.andrews-corner.org/abcde.html

irssi and Slackware: Connecting to Freenode with SSL/SASL
http://www.andrews-corner.org/irssi.html

Some will doubtless need editing to suit wiki style rather than my own personal style (and a few updates needed for the irssi page). Hopefully some of these can be used before the site closes before Xmas this year...

Did anyone else read this announcement and then immediately think: "This sounds like the SlackDocs project. I wonder if SlackDocs was the inspiration"?

Sadly, no I don't think that is even remotely likely or believable.

Sure... and Santa does not exist either, huh?

Killjoy!
