My plan is to attempt again to shrink this down to a smaller size by removing SeaMonkey and install Firefox or maybe even Flock as the browser. My concern is getting the streaming audio and video playback to work well. Gxine and the standard Puppy work quite well, but I'm not sure about getting all of those to work with Gxine in Firefox. I may have to play around with MPlayer a bit.

Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Flock is a good idea as it ties in with what you are doing and is forked from Firefox 1
We do not have a Flock based Puppy and getting in now and collaberating with the Flock people could get you publicity and support from them . . .

Mplayer is a good idea too

I would suggest one more thing . . .

In my opinion the most innovative and useful current puplet is Warrens Ezpup

You could do something similar with myPup

Flock + TV/web2 + link updates Smile

This requires a different way of thinking about things. At the moment many people (including me) are creating their own puplets based on versions of Puppy. For various reasons the interest wanes and the innovations are forgotten and continuity is lost Confused .

The ideas and effects in Ezpup enhance; adding to Puppy. By combining Ezpup and the latest version of Puppy, Warren (WhoDo) still has a distro . . .

In a similar way Rhino, you can offer a small easy to upload upgrade AND a distro

Hope this makes sense. Whatever you decide good luck Smile

So far my tests with Flock are a little disappointing. It seems to crash occasionally in odd places. Fortunately, the flash stuff seems to work well. but I think the problem lies with incorporating the video plugins. It is probably more my fault than Flock's actually.

Flock is actually pretty neat. I hadn't tried it in some time. It has lots of stuff for blogging, pictures, and video.

I'll keep you all posted on the progress!

Subject description: Online PIM that sync's your mobile phone
 

Hi all,
Another newbie here (Bill must be getting worried by now).
I have been trying to get free of Windows for a while now and the final hurdle for me was syncing my phone contacts. Calendar, to-do’s and notes with Linux. I couldn’t find a newbie way to do it. Until now.

Mobical web base pim. Website www.mobical.net
Review www.allaboutsymbian.com/features/item/Who_needs_Outlook_Syncing_to_Mobicalnet.php

Ok here is the rub, while the Mobical service is completely free, it will cost you mobile data charges when you sync. Here in the UK this is not too expensive as mobile operators like Vodafone now charge (I am advised) around 7p per mb on “pay as you go”. After the initial sync it now costs me (on T-mobile) about 5-10 shinny new pennies per sync. I sync once or twice a week so I’ll live with that.

On the plus side its supports most phones not just the expensive smartphones.

Am I free of Windows? WooHoo yes I am. Although I still occasionally need Direct x and shockwave to keep the kids entertained while I throw a stick for my Puppy!

Hope this is useful to someone

Boo

Not sure if y'all know about the Office2.0 Database ( http://o20db.com/db/ ) which lists many online productivity apps.

Thanks for the great links Lobster and klu9. They should offer some nice improvements.

I'm waiting for Barry to release 2.18 before I release myPup again, so that I can take advantage of many of the bugfixes he has reported on his forum.

The more I use myPup, the more I am convinced this is a very worthwhile direction for a puplet.

Thanks guys!

Rhino

This a great project. While not really my cup of tea (I'm really a desktop app man), I know so many people that this would be perfect for. Thanks for making this contribution to the community!

PostPosted: Mon 27 Aug 2007, 22:31    Post subject: myPup: Good Stuff!  

i just graduated from dial-up a couple of days ago and downloaded myPup (from SimplePup), and i'm loving it! so far, everything i need has worked without tweaking (i had to drop back to pppoe-setup to connect, but that was no biggee).

yeah, myPup is nice and uncluttered, and it looks very nice right out of the box. i'm not familiar with JWM (been using XFce with SimplePup), but it looks fine and it's responsive, and wbar is pretty cool, too.

i'm really enjoying myPup! thanks for making myPup free and available!

Thanks! Please let me know of any suggestions for improvement or problems you run into and I will attempt to address them in the beta version. I'm very pleased to hear that the myPup concept is working out for you!

Rhino,

Thanks for this great puplet! I really like the way you designed it, with Wbar and your JWM interface.
Everything seems to work fine, except youtube videos freeze after the first 10 seconds.

Looking forward to the next myPup!

best regards,
Bert

i would've preferred Firefox on myPup. Seamonkey works great, but i don't need the mail and editor and such. to me, Firefox (haven't tried Flock) would seem more in keeping with your Web 2.0 idea.

this is certainly not a complaint, though Very Happy

I will be checking out the latest new puppies to see if I can base it off of one of those, or if I'm better to keep it at 2.16.

I would like myPup to have some differences from the original puppy. I had also given some thought to basing it off of grafpup which has a little more polish to it and feels more "finished" than a standard puppy. I like grafpup's use of openbox.

It would be great if someone could write a script that would allow a user to make a new desktop or menu link where the user is prompted to pick a url and an icon and it creates the icon on the desktop and a menu entry.

I'm not a programmer, but it seems within the realm of possibility. If there are any takers, please send me a pm or just post here.

I hope to get rolling on a new release in the next couple of weeks. My wife is in the middle of her chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer and both of my kids are playing soccer this fall, so I don't have much time to play with puppy. I will be back on top of things asap. Even with that, I've decided I might complete my chemistry degree (already have a Master's in Biology) so...time is precious.
