Hi,

Robby, great site! I linked your links page in the original post #1. I like your layout very much.

I've been busy lately therefore it has been difficult to keep up with the links list. Animals take precedents here. They can't feed nor take care of their self.

Spring can be very busy on a farm. Even the small one that I have.

Once it's posted drop me an email or a PM to say it's there and, once approved, I'll close this thread. We can all then link to it in our signatures.

Sound good?
Hi,

XavierP, I looked at the threads in Linux-General. The article or tutorial could be doable. I will look at that in a little while. Been busy with the horses and the farm lately. I do like the idea though. H_TeXMeX_H expressed interest in another post. I'll see how we could possibly work something out together.

Maybe I'll compile everything I know and have found into my site, then I can link to that. (I'll do that by the end of May) (gotta remember tho )
Hi,

H_TeXMeX_H, I posted a reply to XavierP about doing something along the lines of his suggestion for a tutorial or article. I'm not sure which would be the best. Possibly a article with a tutorial extension. I think this would be a good tool for everyone. I'm real busy at this time but could squeeze a little more.

BTW, where are you referencing your site? Am I missing something in your sig?

If you click on my name, my site should be there somewhere. It is of no particular use to anyone as of yet. Mostly just cursors for xserver and a fluxbox theme:

H_TeXMeX_H:

The guys at http://simplecom.net let us put our server there for colo, and they offer decent rates for hosting. They're not the cheapest (not unreasonable either), but they use and understand open-source software (up until recently, all of their stuff was running Slackware - they now have a customized linux distro), and their support is excellent. If you decide to go with them, tell them we recommended you (we don't get anything out of it, but they offer a great service to us, so it would be nice to know that we're trying to give them referrals).

Hi,

I am going to try too at least update the links list in Post #1 every three days. If not more often.

I think a tutorial would be in order when the times allow. To many things to do in the spring and summer on a farm. Heck, it can be that way all the time, who am I kidding. The farrier is coming today and there goes most of the afternoon.

I still need to make my beer run. Nothing but 'Bud' left in the frig. Oh well, it does begin with 'B' and end with 'r'!

I hope that I'm going in the right direction with this 'Slackware LQ Suggestions!' thread.

I still have a lot of bench work to catch up on. My new server is still laying on the the bench with parts all around.

So much to do with too little time.

Hi

Thanks! I am going to try some other improvements. LQ has restrictions on how to post but there are ways to work around.

Hi,

Just a update! I've included additional links to the 'Slackware LQ Suggestions Links' of the original post. Presently at 102.

Sorry, about not meeting the 3-day period but things have been going wrong here on the farm. My tractor is still down. I need to work on the transmission. Finally got the breakdown/exploded view so I will have a means to open this baby.

This is a good list of links. Should just remove the links from our sigs and put a link to this post... Slackware Learning Links ;-) Great post.

Hi,

My original intent was for all Linux and Slackware users. Not just newbies! I think linking in the sig for 'Slackware LQ Suggestions!' as 'Slackware Learning Links' suggested by lifeforce4 is a great idea. I think that leaving the 'Slackware LQ Suggestions!' will be better for the community overall.

That way all inclusive but with the cross reference in the sig being another means to refer the newbie.
