+1 Sounds like a good idea to me as well.

If money is needed please ask for it and provide some way to accept it. I would be quite than happy to donate.

Actually, there's a Donate button on the Slackware Store website, which is available:
http://store.slackware.com/cgi-bin/store

It'd be nice to know what exactly we're supporting (eg. a new blahblahblah server, etc) and what the amount needed is.

Indeed, I'm very tempted to donate right away but if this won't help with www.slackware.com then I might wait. Slackware needs a web presence, so I would like to donate to this first of all.

But if a straight donation on the Slackware store is all that is needed I'll do it right away.

Nope, not yet
Code:
The connection has timed out
      
      
      The server at www.slackware.com is taking too long to respond.

Sell your cars, sell your houses, send your wives and daughters out on the streets, and get the donations pouring in now! SOS - Save Our Slack!
Usually, when this happens, some people start thinking maybe a new release is imminent.
So:
Are we there yet?

Be careful what you say in the slackware section of LQ. We tend to get excited very quickly here

Not being funny, but http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/f...pub/slackware/ is also down.

Perhaps, we're there!!!

mirrorservice.org is nothing to do with Slackware

ftp.slackware.com.is provided by the Oregon State University and is working just fine.
