Hello to other gnumers, linuxers and slackers,
I don't forumize often, but noticed linux.org flushed accounts so a new id. I've used slackware gnu/linux for many years, but dabbled in other distros. I enjoy good, productive conversations.

I'm closer to Rochester, apple country. I have an old friend from the Utica area.
They've gotten their share of snow and cold this year! Good time to be tinkering with the OS.

Alright! At last, another Slackware user! Welcome to the group, mate.

Happy Trails,
Paul
Thanks!
I've recently retired and am looking to return to many of the things that had to be put aside over the years. Although SW was the OS of choice, it was more out of necessity than pure fun. Now for the fun. I also have tinkered with electronics, cars, and HAM radio (N2TXT). I have been looking for a good app that will provide RSS news via a CW so I can listen to it in the background.

Hi there!

I think I had an account here too, ages ago. Nevermind, I just registered, and I must say, I do love Linux, of all my heart.
I tried to keep track of all the accounts, but things got a bit out of hand. Used to have un/pw from bbs-es, listservers, and newsgroups but so many things have changed. Got to the point that it seemed as if every line of communication turned into a flame of some kind so I just stopped posting and got busy with other stuff. I like to help, and find help, it's kind of like warm water on the brain for me... :)

Right off the cover of Fantastic Adventures!
Tell you the truth what kids have been wearing out in public nowadays is a bit beyond even my comfort zone. Maybe I'll dress like that and give'em some 'perspective'. That oughta clear the streets :0.

After moving south from Indiana, where computer users were intelligent and interesting, we have moved to west Florida, where education has a hard time surviving. Weather is, hurricanes aside, wonderful, if humid. Glad to be among the group!
