Forgot to post this:

On Friday something a bit unusual happened: upgraded the kernel package to bump the version from 4.4.199 to 4.4.201.

No announcement on any mailling lists or web sites.

I am not complaining, mind you, just wondering if anyone has any information about this and the reasons behind this upgrade (more Intel shenanigans?)...

I am but a simple man, with simple tastes.

Just what I needed on this beautiful Monday morning: a spammer to plonk.

Updating the VM.

Next: update the VM.

Next: install . And probably update that as well.

I am compiling stuff on the (physical) Slackware machine at the same time.

And I will probably try to install VirtualBox on that physical server.

And compile Python3. Through sbotools. Because that's how I roll.

I am a complete psycho. I need to go to bed early tonight, and I am just getting started!
