Welcome to Slackword

This blog is a collection of notes mainly on the subjects loosely revolving around Linux and programming. As you may have already noticed, the title of this blog is no accident. It is a tribute to the oldest and finest Linux distribution out there – Slackware.

I started my Linux adventure in 2004. After a period of distro-hopping, around 2006 I became a full-time slacker. As a way of contributing back to the Slackware community, I am a SlackBuilds maintainer for i3 tiling window manager, i3status and yajl SlackBuild scripts. I am also an editor at a recently founded Slackware Documentation Project.
