Congratulations, ecomoney and Stacey and Jessica!!!

I really loved your story--a real cliffhanger till the post before last, in which you announced your approaching success.

amish's reaction confused me. This is the appropriate place for personal stories about Puppy.

Further, it strikes me as a perfect example of why we mess with these fickle devices anyway: because they help us live. In this case, they are powerful tools for winning back power we have unconsciously given away for millennia to near-goblins, with their dark political objectives. The mediocre vision and 3rd rate products of one of their minions, Gates, held out nothing for this woman, though it sounds like she would have found a way no matter what. Whereas a gentleman-scholar from Australia and his rag-tag crew of volunteers around the world has helped turn the tide for not only her and Jessica and you, but untold thousands of violated families wherever the Hague holds sway. It reminds me of another great story your Isles recently gave us--"Evelyn" with Pierce Brosnan.

ASTOUNDING! AWESOME! Thank you for your dedication and passion and for telling this story here. Our era's information deluge will help bring down the artificially powerful forever, and Puppy and its user-creators are already leading the way. Best wishes and have a wonderful life together, you three.

Thank you andrewed, you pretty much sum it up. I have to confess I was nervous about posting this story here, as it is part of my personal life, rather than my business/hobby like other forum members. I thought I would because I wished to explain my absence, and again thank Barry and the team for producing puppy and contributing to open source.

I think its important for the people using puppy "in the field" to post back their experiences for the more "back room" developers to show them exactly how important what they are doing is. Also, although I have used it to help others in our local community who use it for "living their lives", its the first time Ive really had to rely on it myself and for people close to me. The whole experience has really driven home to me the importance of what were doing here, and made me twice as determined to do whatever I can to assist.

You're welcome, ecomoney. Yeah, we're out here putting our lives on the line with this software! It's serious stuff.

Next, I can't wait to check out your local currency system, an interest of mine for years. Cheers!

Like Amish, I'm also one who infrequents this forum as much as I did in days gone by, yet it's due to my ever-failing health and a wish to spend time with my grandchildren who have managed to have kept me here 3 years past my "expiration date" when I feel well enough.

Unlike Amish, I happen to think this is the perfect place for this post to have been posted and for all the reasons others gave. I can give no better other than the fact that it shows the tenacity of True Enduring Love!

May the Great Spirit richly bless you, your wife, and your daughter, Ecomoney! And may the Spirits of Health and Happiness set up their encampment in your midst, and may the light from their campfire continue to give all of you Excellent Health and light your way to Happiness Divine.

This is my prayer for the three of you as you commence upon Life's Journey together.

Ainsi soit-il! Blessed Be!

I thought it would be "one day I rescued the crashed pc of a girl in my neighborhood" kind of story. I did not imagine that much. What a story...

PostPosted: Wed 11 Jul 2007, 13:57    Post_subject: Update  

Just to let you know the update to the legal case, my wife Stacey is currently in mediation with Jessica's father, to discuss Jessica and Stacey full time stay in Britain. The other side have decided to give up on using this outdated piece of legislation it would seem because of all of the publicity that was created around the case and the mounting costs (those who live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones as we say!!!!). It is a shame there was no protection afforded under British or international law against this, but the result (in our case) has been the same

Puppy Linux and the internet has enabled us to fight this through from start to finish, we have use the computers daily for just about everything from phone calls, posters with openoffice, updating our (linux/drupal based) website etc etc. Although it would perhaps have been possible to do this with ...other... operating systems, it would have been prohibitively slow, expensive and unreliable for us to use.

Many many thanks from me, Stacey and Jessica to everyone that has helped with the puppy/linux/open source projects!!!

Cool Good news Smile

The point of living and of being an optimist, is to be foolish enough to believe the best is yet to come.
