I'm in the Slackware's changelog!

Oh. My. Money.Gods. I can’t believe I somehow actually contributed not just to the Slackware’s community, but to my favorite distro itself. Thank you, Pat! I am so flattered.


Well, it happened at the October 5th, but I noticed only today. I had some troubles with elilo back then, so I opened a thread at LQ which helped me find a solution, which was to recompile elilo, and for that I had to slightly change the official SlackBuild written by Patrick Volkerding. Who could’ve thought something this small would be acknowledged by the Slackware’s BDFL.

A couple of months ago I decided to start contributing to the community of my favorite Linux distro, so I started to be more active at LQ. Looks like mission accomplished.


It turned out, that I need a full featured website much less than a simple blog. I don’t want to have a blog on Tumblr, but I do like their implementation of it, so I went with Chyrp, which is pretty close. But then Chyrp died, so I moved to Hugo. The blog is NSFW, as I might occasionally post some pr0n and other disturbing stuff.
