"I may be slow, but I'm sure."

Back when I was a wee lad, my mother bought me a children's record. One side had a narration of "The Little Red Hen", and the other "The Tortoise and the Hare". One of my favourite lines, spoken by the Tortoise on the B side of that record, follows me even now: "I may be slow, but I'm sure." And so it goes with my ongoing upgrade from Slackware 14.0 to Slackware 14.2.

Coping with change

A decade ago, I hosted a website for my partner, so that she could post photos and such for her family to see. She didn't use it much, and, in 2017, the hosting software reached end-of-life. So, I shut the site down, planning to upgrade the software and resurrect the site later.

Well, life got in the way, and I never did resurrect the site. Until now.

The Long, Slow Climb

I make no secret about it that I run Slackware on both my server and my desktop workstation. Slackware allows me to manage my systems the way I want to, without a "nanny" holding my hand and saying "No.". And, with this level of freedom comes a corresponding level of risk; you can really fsck things up as Slackware doesn't supply a safety net. But, that's all right: I believe in learning skills, and Slackware certainly requires skills.
