Hey guys,

13 years ago LFS 1.0 was released (Dec 16, 1999). Still continuing on today.

Reading an old article from 3 years ago 
(http://news.cnet.com/8301-13505_3-10413589-16.html) sparked this email. 
The first sentence in that article reads "Quick, what were you doing on 
December 9, 1999? If you actually remember, then there's a good chance 
that you're an old-school Linux type." Well, as a matter of fact, on 
that evening I was laying the finishing touches to LFS 1.0 and fixing 
the last few glitches in compiling GCC- and Glibc-2.0.7. Does 
anybody remember those early days? "Up hill. Both ways" comes to mind 
from that early era. Tons of fun, though!

Well, here's to another 13 years of LFS.
