What about a place for a newbie noob, level 0 or below! Thats me, Canbyte. I have other technical training, can write and being a bit pedantic, can think like a non geek. One problem as i see it is that good info is piecemeal, all over the place, getting access to it can be confusing and time consuming. So far i've spent 2 months on this go-round trying to get puppy working, plus a previous effort similarly unsuccessful. I hope i don't have to give up this time but until i get my oki printer working and either a usb drive or a lan share with a win98 box working, the project can only be considered experimental, subject to disillusionment/ abandonment. I need a system, not a Puppy box.

I've been reading till my eyes bleed - kind respondents' replies, the wiki, fora here and elsewhere, the manual, etc. While Puppy is a great box to use, this is not how i want to live my life. Volunteering to organize the info would be a far more satisfying use of my time. Although there is some benefit going through some pain to understand MY problem, it really doesn't do anything for Puppy. So lets make a deal. Somebody, get my @#$%^& system working, as Ecomoney is doing, I'll work endlessly on presenting / reorganizing info so non geeky newbies can get going or solve problems quickly, much as jhecht described. [I once saw a page that had topics that that the reader could expand as needed to show /print more detail.]

I'll be your border collie rounding up the bits and pieces!

-----------------------------------
Reorganize puppy home page to eliminate clicks.
Expand forum topics to encourage more permanent / developing topics.

So lets boogie.

Cheers.

Me too, a level 1 puppy user, sometimes, contributor.

Often you can see my post with new .pet package. I love to create packages for puppy. Working in a Tech company, so I'm not able to spend my fulltime on puppy.

Level 1.5 have donated hardware in the earlier development of Puppy.

Have performed a lot of full hard drive puppy installs.
Have had to trouble shoot hardware problems on old PCs to get puppy to run properly.

Keep burned copies of puppy handy for anybody that might want to try out Puppy. Have made a lot of converts!

Anyway thats my 2 cents worth.

Level 1.6

I know BASIC and some C++ and I am teaching myself how to use the Linux CLI. I have done a few remasters and am working on a few more. i have never made and .pets or anything, but a few icon packs that I posted on the forum. I spend a lot of time helping puppians with problems they may have on the support channel.

Look at my profile and there are many ways to get a hold of me. I'm happy to help in any way.
