Yes, it is that time again (finally)! Following a long period of planning, development, and testing, the Slackware Linux Project is proud to announce the latest stable release of the longest running distribution of the Linux operating system, Slackware version 14.2!
Eric Hameleers (aka AlienBob) has also produced a live version of Slackware 14.2 for those wishing to try it out without modifying their hard drive or spinning up a full install in a VM. ISOs are available from the official mirrors as well as the torrents page.
Or to reframe without the authority worship:
We likely don't know the full story here. I suspect it could have gone like this:
* Someone has their phone plugged into a socket labeled 'Not for public use'.
* PCSO notices, says "Unplug the phone now or I'll call the real police on you because RULEZ!".
* Man asks reasonable question of costumed imbecile thereby challenging the tiny bit of authority costumed thug believes they have.
* Costumed tax leeches aggress against peaceful person who has harmed nobody
* Man gets rightly indignant at baseless aggression
* Higher paid costume wearers extort/kidnap for contempt of cop
In 1998 the duo started work on SNES-CD, a video game media format that was supposed to augment the cartridge-based SNES by adding support for higher-capacity CDs. In 1991 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Sony introduced the "Play Station" (yes, with a space) but it never saw the light of day.
I think the first year should read "1988" no?
