BTW, I like the web page! A great reference for the user. Credit is not always necessary but I do appreciate the mention.
Thanks. Yeah, it sure took a while to make that page, but that's probably because I wrote it in a text editor Probably easier to use templates like I did in the past ... but I don't like any of the 'free' templates they offer me, they always tend to look unprofessional.

My site isn't even half finished yet ... it will have many more things ... when I get around to it I'll tell you if I find more useful links.

Hi,

Yes, it all comes down to time. My wife and I are going away for the holiday. I hate to waste that much time but I am looking forward to the trip. Get those horses to earn their keep!

I just have to schedule some time to get this project to a close. My site is still sitting on one of my development systems.

I agree templates are an easy way but I prefer to roll my own. That way everything becomes part of my tool box. Thus I control the content without outside problems. Even GPL/GNU can be challenged. But I don't want to debate the issue since flames can get rather large.

The links are now at 132! I've been updating the headings and links along with a little organization.

Suggestions welcome!

Good luck with the pages.

Hi,

I'll look into these later!

We just got home, great horse trip. One problem though, I need to call the dealership because my transmission blew just as we backed the trailer into the farm. Wow! $$$

I need that truck!

Looks like the forum has been busy over the holiday.

Hi,

I've added new links to the original post. Still need too do some formatting.

I'm spending more time than I should on this thread. It seems the original idea of a web page was the way to go. I am moving a lot of the information to a web page to allow better presentation and expanded information.

I've been using Nvu 1.0 to author and it's nice & free to boot. I hope to have the pages available soon.

Hi,

I added some links and cleaned some. Added a great Linux time line chart link. I've tested all the links but if someone finds a stale one in the list then please let me know.

I dug through my old bookmarks and got some more ... also got a few from other posts:

Rainers Home - useful stuff on DVD authoring, power saving, lilo boot screen
http://www.jochem.name/

Freshmeat - another place to look for FLOSS (and it has numerous filters for type of license and OS)
http://freshmeat.net/

Allegro game programming tutorials - SDL is technically better, but there are fewer tutorials for SDL (there's also allegroGL if you want GL acceleration)
http://www.talula.demon.co.uk/allegro/docs.html

LinuxEmu - lots of emulators for Linux (such as video game emulators)
http://linuxemu.retrofaction.com/links.php

GCC online documentation - very informative
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/

Recovering files in Linux - mostly for ext2 ...
http://recover.sourceforge.net/linux/

dynamic DNS and web redirection service
http://www.no-ip.com/

Linux guides - kernel compiling, some stripts, etc.
http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/

Laptops with Linux pre-installed or OS = optional (from a recent post):
http://system76.com/
http://www.xtremenotebooks.com/
http://configure.us.dell.com/dellsto...=DNCWEL1&s=dhs
http://www.linuxcertified.com/linux_laptops.html

OOO Impress templates (may not be relevant, you decide ... that's the last of my Linux-relevant bookmarks)

Hi,

Thanks! I'll look into those later in the day. Hopefully I get my truck back today, $$$. I'm back logged because of the truck being in the shop for the past week. I have so much to catch up on the 'farm'.

BTW, I've just about got the page completed.

Well, they were working when I tried them ... that's the problem with a lot of sites, they go down either temporarily or permanently.

Hi,

I'll try the few that were stale. I will periodically check the links list to make sure that the links are valid.

If anyone finds a bad link then please let me know.

Hi,

Thanks for the comment!

That is the reason behind this thread, to assist everyone with links that will enhance their use of Slackware Linux.

I've been working on my web pages and hopefully that will be done soon. Too many eggs in my basket right now.
