Hello boys.

I'm new here, but I wanted to share a little something with the community since Puppy made me leave that EVIL "OS" bit by bit.

Simply Put:
Puppy is small, fast, and full-featured.
Window$ is huge, slooooow, and a simple "Notepad" requires you to have an 48-core Intel Ultra i128 at 8THz with 8 TB of RAM, and DirectX 84.96 (or whatever API Vista/7/8/9 uses; don't know, had XP before Puppy).

Okay, lets get on topic.

First, para usuarios de habla hispana, I've translated PPLog into Español.

Next, for those of you (like me) that think that the PupDial GUI is over-crowded with widgets, here's a modification that arranges the GUI into different tabs (using a notebook) and IMHO is more user-friendly and intuitive.

Then, I have a little application (created by none other than me) to help create pinboard icons, or browse existing ones to add to it. It also includes some buttons to call obconfig (you may change the program if you use other window manager), change the GTK+ themes (calling gtk-chtheme), or changing the mouse cursors (via pcur). It was coded and tested under Lucid Puppy 525, and uses the aforementioned applications as backends for configuration, plus the gtkdialog3 program for it's GUI, and obviously, the ROX-Filer. It is a self-contained ROX-Filer AppDir, so to install just uncompress wherever you see fit, and drag to your pinboard to create an icon.

Last, for the gamers, I made a little frontend for Half-Life called Puppy-Life, that lists the games from Valve installed. It requires wine, and obviously, a copy of the aforementioned game (see the note below). To install, unpack it to your HL directory (usually C:\Sierra\Valve or something like that). It should create a Pup-Life directory inside it. Just run it and see if it works. Please read the included documentation, or ask me.

*NOTE: I'm not being contradictory, I just despise *Window$* not the *Applications/Games*.

m'kay, I think that covers it up for now.

Enjoy!

EDIT:

Note to Forum Admins: If I accidentally posted under the wrong category, I apologize in advance and request that it be moved it into the correct category if you can.

Does this show a weakness in the Puppy community?
Do we have a place to collect suggested code?

...or will this (as much else) be overseen or forgotten.

Good job, it's always nice to see new members take an active interest and help to make puppy better whether its through developing code or helping to compile new programs.

I dont unsderstand english

It's not true, but post in two languages does not hurts me, surtout si c'est en espagnol ou en français. People often study a foreign language at school. Me I studied english.
I go to the iberico forum to leer you, because here it's more difficult for me understanding english than espagnol..
