Slartie's newsletter list snapshot?

Hello, some people here might remember Slartie. He posted for a brief period in the #! forum, and I believe I saw him hang around linuxbbq too. We are talking 3+ years back. He had a cool website where he posted his newsletters and some guides (never went far with those). The site seems to have gone down. Anyone kept a snapshot or have the newsletters hanging in their inbox?

^ Ah, I remember those...

My favourite article is his wonderful piece on the (unfortunately common) practice of APT-pinning with Debian stable:

http://wayback.archive.org/web/20161105 … ml#topic01

Required reading for all Debian users, IMO (as long as they don't mind the rather salty language used).

Now that was a good read and his quote 'Testing. All the breakage, and none of the fun.' seems to really  convince users stable is the place to be, while for the adventurous Testing and Sid (which is more rambunctious) are the places to explore smile.

For some reason, I didn't expect archive.org to be that useful... thanks.
