"You always go back to Slack" (ramble)

This is just a strange moment that I had to share with somebody. Last night I ordered Gentoo CD's, getting ready to replace this was-Redhat-but-is-now-its-own-thing setup I have now with something a bit more effective. What shows up in my mailbox this morning? A copy of slack 8.1, from a long-forgotten subscription. Coincidence? Synchronicity? More like absent-mindedness

I've been bouncing back and forth between Slackware and various other distros for about 5 years now. Even when I forget Slackware, it hunts me down and finds me!

Oh well. Why fight it? Guess it's time for the reinstall.

Sorry to fill up bandwidth with this silliness. I just had to get it off my chest.

If your Slack subscribtions has arrived "ours" cann't be far behind.

Gentoo CD's??? I thought Gentoo was just a 16 MB bootstrap with scripts to download the latest sources from official project FTP's.. Am I misunderstanding something?
