( lvds

This release of eXpand215b-Barbie_Revamped hopefully correct the mouse bug some of you encountered. )

Edsel has now become Do Tell after your upgrade.

I will distribute this around Sydney to any likely suspects.
Cheers...Chris

heres why women dont want to use a compiler

WE DONT HAVE THE TIME !!!

we work full time, keep a household and raise children, some even tend gardens and look after pets (and husbands too) and also have had to learn how to use powertools in this new 'equal opportunity' world - those of us who are also computer nerds usually find nerding time is limited to almost none at all.

although I do have time to sit and play a hundred mb of games, so i think I might download it, since someone else made it for me to use...

one word of advice though - the word expand is something that women will have a natural aversion too, just calling it 'barbie edition' would have been enough.

I would be so happy if I could download Expand Barbie. I tried the link and it isn't working? Or I'm doing something wrong? Barbie is so pretty and the games look fun. Thankyou

@Lilahblossom

Try this link: http://puppyisos.org/isos/2007-01-to-06/ and select "eXpand215b-Barbie_Revamped.iso" from the listing. The md5sum.txt file is directly below it.

Ok thankyou so much. I've downloaded and am going to run it now. I've been home for over a week from work with viral pneumonia and gonna be home a few more days. Now I can play with Barbie. Also, I've made a donation so others can keep downloading all the lovely puppies.

The links point toward a forbidden 403 message

then the 1 of 2 barbie iso files from the puppyiso site produced multiple failed download attempts . it would stop in the middle of downloading for some reason. ( Perhaps the firefox browser download scheme )

So i tried the other Barbie ISO from the list and it was around 225MB but had
errors when booting the live CD

I thought the wife might enjoy trying Linux and I wanted to see what a Girl's OS would be like
Will it require designer handbags and shoes every other week?

Worse than that - For a few days every month it becomes impossible to use Confused

I have always had problems with big downloads in Firefox and Seamonkey so always use wget for the big stuff.

1/ Right click on the download link for the file you want to download and choose "copy link location" from the drop down menu.
2/ Open a terminal in the directory you want to download the file to and enter
Code:
wget -c

3/Centre click your mouse in the terminal window. You should now have
Code:
wget -c "the web address of the file  you want to download"

4/ Press enter.

Your file will now download to the desired directory. The -c switch in the above code means "if the download stops before it is complete restart automatically from the point that the download stopped at".

Careful with comments like that. You leave yourself wide open for things like.

Hmm I just found the wget log from when I downloaded the iso myself (can't believe that is still kicking around on my hard drive Embarassed ) This may be the site I downloaded from myself Everything looks the same as you screenshot .
As an experiment I tried to download it again with Firefox and got the 403 message myself.

You are not allowed to access this page. Possible problems:

* Authentication Failure
* Incorrect file or folder permissions

Servage.net Clustered Webhosting running enhanced Apache Webserver

I wonder if this has anything to do with the attacks on some of our websites that are being discussed here
I also found a second wget log using this address.

Maybe this is where I got the iso before. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work either.

Being on dial up I couldn't realistically upload the file myself but have asked my Brother in law to do so today. Will report back when he has finished.

Thanks for the offer Chris, but I think you misunderstood. I already have a copy myself and am now trying to help whyme get a copy himself by getting mine uploaded to megaupload. Downloading is not really a problem for me. (true it takes me three or four days to download instead of the three and a half hours it took my Brother in law to upload last night) but wget -c gets it for me eventually.

The uploads are now complete and the file is available at
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=7FK9GJ8K for the iso
and
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N8276NKX for the md5 text file.

Note for others who come across this post at a later date these files will be automatically removed in one year from now.
