Slackware History
 
Hi,

Just a thought, I was referencing the Linux TimeLine in a post about Slackware. I came across an old link on the history of Slackware 'Get Slack'.

It has been a while since I had read the article. You should also read the Church of the subgenius: www.subgenius.com link. You need a Slackers attitude!

If you're curious; there's a bunch of links of general interest for slackers @ http://rlworkman.net/links/
I've found some cool links there so check it out if you haven't. ;)

Hi,

That link and a whole bunch of links can be found at 'Slackware-Links' which was compiled from 'Slackware LQ Suggestions Links!'.

Digging through the older threads while at work, dodging any sort of productivity, I came across this link and the "Get Slack" link in the original post. Hilarious....

In these days when Usenet is too often a home from home for kerb crawlers and spam traders, it is hard to remember that Usenet used to be fun. Garry's post sparked a classic Usenet debate - on RFC 666 compliance, sourcery and sorcery, the subliminal messages emitted by vi, of Kerberos and the hounds of hell, and of speculation that Pat Volkerding was L Ron Hubbard in disguise...

There were angry Wiccans and earnest, or not so earnest, searches for Satan in the source, and declarations of defiance from the friends of Patrick Volkerding: "I've met the maker of Slackware," one wrote, "and he wasn't wearing pentagrams or drinking blood. There are some hidden things in Slackware but they have nothing to do with Satanism..."

Another told the story of how Satan once tempted Eve with an Apple, and another declared that "the SunOS Pascal compiler came up with 'atan.S' once and the word 'sin' many times. This, for me, is conclusive proof that Sun Microsystems is a company founded on the unholy triptych of devil worship, virgin sacrifice, and proprietary operating systems."
Possibly the most entertaining article I have read in a while :D

Hi,

Yes, I like the article. Beware! Halloween is coming and rumors galore.

What ever happened to just plain 'fun'? Slackware!
