Will the real Slackware Team please stand up… Please stand up!

Its been rumored that GSB (Gnome Slackbuild) had issues installing on Slackware 13.1 from the net installer script. Well, I created a VM, installed Slackware 13.1 (full install) and ran the installer.
I ran into zero issues. Zero, zilch, 0, nada, issues. You can see a screenshot of it running just below!

Today, after going through an excruciating work out with the mower and trimmer, my family and I set out to clean out our daughter’s wading pool.
Once finished, we all sat down to relax when she screamed out, “OH NO A BUG! AHHHHHHH!” Well you know how dramatic a 5 year old can be.
Closer look revealed a baby praying mantis walking over the chair she was on. We snapped a photo, didn’t come out all that great, BUT you can still see it!

That’s right! Oracle is on the verge of purchasing MySQL which makes its future unknown at this time. However, the EC must approve the purchase before Oracle can move forward.
Read the following article and please do your part in letting the EC know what you think!
Yeah, we all know by now that the http://rafb.net paste site is going off-line. Seven years of dedication to a free pastebin for the world.
Well, after a few talks with some folks and after being pressed in to doing (hehe) this, I’ve switched http://pastebin.slackadelic.com to use the code from rafb.net.
Thanks go out to edman007 from ##slackware on freenode for his help in tracking down and fixing a few odd issues with the code. It even works with paste scripts! Right now the official script is Pastelling.
The script was originally written by Steven Robson Pastelling, aka rafb.pl, was written by _pragma, but is being hosted on github by Michiel van Wessem.

If you happen to be one of the leechers that has recently gotten pwn3d by my little change in how I publish my images.
Drop me a line! firstname.lastname@example.org

In the process of securing my blog, I just so happened to be looking through the logs and found a few leechers for images on my site. Unfortunately for them the power of Apache and htaccess files makes it possible for me to “serve” up a different image than requested.
This, is what I did. Was it funny? Oh you bet it was. Do I get satisfaction from their hardship? You bet I do.
Yeah, they may have hated it, but I hate it more when someone leeches MY bandwidth and MY resources for their own benefit. Or was it the fact they were just too ignorant to do it correctly; too lazy to do it correctly. The reason matters not.. I really don’t care. They… got….pwn3d!
One site, at this point, has already pulled the image I put in its place. The other sites, lets just say, one is a tiled background, the others are smack dab in the middle of popular articles. Ooops!

Fred has pushed another round of updates to Slamd64. However, he’s still not calling this “stable” due to lack of testing at this time. Its only a few packages at this time and I’d say we are getting close!
Download, upgrade, and test! I’d like to see 12.2 FINAL before the end of the week!
