Doghouse – Yggdrasil and Slackware

Article from Issue 233/2020

I told Bill that I am in the process of cleaning out my house in an effort at what older people like me call "downsizing," getting rid of things that we have collected over the years.

I have a lot of stuff that I have accumulated, and one way of reducing the amount is to give away some of these items at FOSSH events like LFNW.
