Celebrating tonight: after a very good tutorial with one of my supervisors, my dept are OK with my adding some computer science elements to my music PhD. That's worth a drink [Guinness, because it's one of Patrick's favourites as well].

Indeed, and the Foreign Extra is my favorite of all. Cheers!

Slackware on tour!

Well, I'm off to Turkey for just over a week tomorrow and I have some excellent 6.8% IPA tonight to get me in the mood. It's from a London craft brewery called The Kernel [they're just round the corner from me and make excellent strong-flavoured beer, no, not Turkish beer but there'll be enough of that there].

I'll be taking my netbook along which runs Slackware 14.2. Will check in now and again - have a great week, all.

I believe I first used Slackware in roughly 2000 with version 7.0 or thereabouts. I remember installing from a stack of floppies. I've been back and forth across many distributions since then, chasing fads and clever package managers, but I always seem to end up back with Slackware. It's sensible, functional, and (by my way of reckoning things) simple. The thing I like best about Slackware is how much it respects its users. It credits our intelligence, doesn't go behind our backs, doesn't shield us from details we're not expected to understand, and doesn't cram overmarketed, underperforming, hyped-up, bloated, anti-Unix trends down our throats. In a world where "modern" distributions are expected to hide the boot messages behind fact-free boot-time graphical throbbers, Slackware still defaults to runlevel 3, and it uses a real init to do so.

Also, Slackware still ships with xv. :^)
