    RE: Email/PIM Application
    Hi there, Hugenoot. :) I've been pretty scarce around here the past few years. I do still visit from time to time, though. That link above is just a link to my Profile View on Google G+. You'd have to be a G+ member to be able to see it, though. I do very minimal cloud computing. I don't trust it. Security sucks. Everything and everyone is getting hacked these days. I would never put important or private/valuable personal data on anyone's servers. I ONLY keep data like that on my own system (encrypted) and backed up on external media and hard copy when possible. Anyway, off a go... ===== As per the Moderator's request, if we're to continue this conversation about cloud computing, hacking, security issues currently being experienced on the Internet, then let's start a new topic in the appropriate area of the forum.

    RE: Email/PIM Application
    I haven't been spending nearly as much time online or sitting in front of this box and screen on my desk these days. A bit of computer/techie burnout, I guess. I haven't even been writing on any of my blogs. I've actually gone back to reading "dead tree" books for enlightenment and entertainment. ~Eric :)

I do have email notifications turned on, though... and they still work. How are things with me? Well, they haven't improved much financially; health is OK, though. That's always a good thing. You're in my circles at G+, Istimsak. You can always find me there... https://plus.google.com/117345995266416713461/about/p/pub Anyway, see you here or there or somewhere! Happy Holidays, everyone! :) ~Eric

    RE: Slackware documentation project
    [b]The Slackware Documentation Project[/b] Greetings fellow Slackware Linux users! A week ago on Jeremy's LinuxQuestions.org, Nicolas Kovaks (kikinovak) made a post suggesting the need for a centrally located compendium of Slackware Linux documentation that could be compiled, maintained, and archived for use by all. This posting mobilized the hardcore Slackware user community at LQ.org to post suggestions and criticisms regarding this topic. Thanks to Mr. Eric Hameleers (Alien Bob), a Slackware Linux Core Team member and Mr. Nicolas Kovacs, an IT professional and creator of [url=http://www.microlinux.fr/]MicroLinux[/url], the dream of many a Slacker for the past 19 years has become a reality. The Slackware Linux Documentation Project is born! The project has the blessing of Slackware's BDFM, Patrick Volkerding. It is currently being designed and staffed and will go live very soon. It is using the [url=https://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki]DocuWiki[/url] wiki software. This is a worldwide, multi-language (English as primary) community project. Your help is needed. Please come join us in creating what we hope will be the largest single source of Slackware Linux knowledge on the Net. The wiki is in the process of being created and staffed at this time. You can still register and begin contributing. Also, your thoughts and input are welcome on the mailing list and the project's IRC channel. Let's work together to make this happen!

    RE: Welcome to Slackware
    Well, it's been a while... I thought I'd pop in here and bump the very first thread ever posted in this area of the forum; appropriate that it be about the oldest living distribution of GNU/Linux. Slackware STILL ROCKS! :)

    RE: WHen the Groups will Return?
    Well, you know how it is... Between being an Admin at Scot's Newsletter Forums - Bruno's All Things Linux, running my own personal board, and trying to provide some minimally entertaining or educational content going on my three blogs; I'm just overwhelmed some days. ;) I'll try to peak in here more often, though. You folks be good now. Don't burn the place down while I'm gone. :) Later... ~Eric P.S. I'm easy to find if you need me... http://vtel.jaylach.com/vtel57/vtel57.html

    RE: WHen the Groups will Return?
    Daniel, You're a trooper, buddy. Thanks for all you do. I've been remiss in visiting here at Linux.com lately because... well, because I just don't have the time to visit all the forums and blogs that I like to visit on any given day. Sometimes, you just have to pass on one or two. Unfortunately, time gets by you and you realize you haven't logged in at one of your fav places in months. That's the nature of the Internet these days... information overload. It's good to see some familiar faces still hanging around the place, though. Hope all is well with everyone. I too am looking forward to seeing how Daniel's vision for this place will look when it becomes reality. Take care all... ~Eric
