#Ayatana #Indicators has just received a pull request on Github by Robert Tari that will make indicators finally available to all Linux systems running vanilla Gtk. Up to now, the full functionality scope (rendering of custom widgets via GMenu) was only available in Ubuntu. This is an a hell of a milestone. Sending out my biggest gratitude to Robert, before I have even tested his PR. light+love from sunweaver

Fedi - I could use some help.
Recently I have been playing a bit of a digital archeologist and exploring websites of late 90s/early 2000s.
I have grown up in Poland, and we had a few internet focused magazines, that would include copies of websites on a CD. I bet other countries had similar publications.
This is where I need help. What magazines from your country included offline versions of websites? English preferred, but I am happy to explore any language. Boosts greatly appreciated!
