I'm not exactly a Slackware fan, as some of you may know, but for
reasons I'm not going into, I want to take a look at current slackware.
So I hied me over to their site, and discovered that their ISOs are
available via BitTorrent.
Well, Slackware is clearly hugely popular. I started the torrents last
night and since then I have acquired < 50MB of each ISO. But I have been
doing my bit as a torrent user - I have uploaded a total of > 250MB. My
DSL may be asymetric but my Slackware download is even more so - and in
the wrong direction :-(
P.S. I just revisited slackware.com and I see they have a Heanet mirror
- I guess I'll use its services later.
