Patrick Volkerding is back!

Segun leo en Slashdot "The Man" ya se encuentra mejor de su enfermedad y con animos de sacar la version 10.1 de Slackware. Espero que se mejore del todo :)

Hi folks. Well, I'm back in California and I'm happy to let you all know
that I'm feeling much better. :-) Here are a few updates so you can see
that I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully 10.1 won't
be too far off (I'm still trying to figure out just how far behind we are,
and what other fixes need to get merged in), and then we can look at what
exactly needs to be done to try to switch over to the new kernel series for
11, or sometime later on. I still don't think it's time for that yet (it
will be best to wait until 2.4 can be abandoned). Besides, I should
probably be trying to take it easy as much as I can.
There's no need to try for an encore...

I offer my thanks and gratitude to the many people who sent me kind words
and good advice, or indeed anything at all. I figure it was all for a
reason, and that there were always lessons to be learned. Hopefully I'll
learn them now! ;-)

Most of these fine people will remain anonymous, however, one of my
doctors was Leonardo Faoro, a medical resident at the Mayo Clinic. He's
running a support site for cancer patients at:
and if you feel his site might be useful for yourself or anyone you know,
please spread the word about it. Leo is a good guy and one heck of a
great doctor, and giving his site a little plug here is the least I can do.
He didn't ask for it, but don't think he'll mind.

Very best wishes to all, good luck in 2005, and THANKS AGAIN!,
It's good to be back. :-)

I think I've been helped now, so this text file won't hang
around forever, but I'll leave it at

for a little while in case anyone is still interested.
It's the closest thing to a blog I've ever done. (ooooo! ;-)

Take care,
