Please developers don’t hurt me!

Pffffff….

In a few days’ time, there were new releases of major and highly visible pieces of software: VLC, LibreOffice and KDE. I so happen to package all of these as “unofficial” additions to Slackware. I had a few hectic days (well, nights) preparing binaries, testing, rebuilding and writing changelogs and blog posts. I think it’s time for a bit of rest & relaxation, because I also have a stressful day job, and it was becoming a bit too heavy, all combined.

Praise to all of you, but please developers, get a drink, visit long-forgotten friends and let me get my breath back…

I think my next blog post will be a food recipe.

End of communication.

Thank you so much — you really deserve a break!
Don’t return before your batteries are fully loaded, again!

Although we are all looking forward to your next posts and packages, of course… ;)

I’ve just finished installing all three packages & all seems well. Too bad handbrake couldn’t have come out now, too, lol. Many thanks.
