Gah! It looks like a spam site has taken over! You should try to contact the owner of slackwiki.

This is the reason why I prefer good old fashioned FAQs or other downloadable documentation to WIKIs.
When a WIKI goes poof! it takes everything with it. A few years down the line when one or two other 'in the cloud' services also fall by the wayside people are going to catch on to the fact that it's not such a bright idea after all.

I hope PV doesn't jump on the cloud-bandwagon. I don't want to see Slackware obscured by a rather pointless 'technology' that has no real purpose.

Forgot to renew the domain, but it's done now - registrar says it might be up to 48 hours before it's back online.
