I thought everyone knew that, but then again I know people that don't know what MISC means either. Razz

This is a cool idea synth. Can't wait to try alpha 3.

I remember, back in the early 90s when PCMCIA devices first came out, someone wrote an article that jokingly said that PCMCIA stood for

People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms.

Is alpha 3 still coming? It looks like there was a near-release (turned into a placeholder), and it's been hovering at 95% done for a few days now. Everything alright? Smile

98% done.

There are two bugs blocking this release.
If you want alpha 3 badly,I can release it right now, but don't complain if anything goes wrong.

Bugs like this one (reported by panzerpuppy):

panzerpuppy wrote:

Code:
tclsh /usr/bin/mtpaintsnapshot.sh


The tcl shell script executes mtPaint and takes a screenshot after a specified delay.
After editing the image and closing the window,mtPaint ends nicely,but the tcl shell script remains active (isn't terminated).

After making 100 screenshots with mtPaint,you get 100 instances of the shell script running in the background,wasting precious resources.


can be bad for your old low-spec box Smile

100 scripts? Ouch! Take your time then. Smile

Sorry about that.

(Maybe you can upload some WIPs to that site for the diligent to check for and grab?)

Alpha 3 delivers! - 5 MiB* less crap,less RAM usage and faster boot times Very Happy

Subject description: Refuses to load module
 

I've made a frugal install for testing and I'm stuck when trying to establish wireless network connection for my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo with a Intel 2200BG card. The ipw2200 refuses to load. I've tried to use the Network Wizard from the menu (won't start when clicking desktop icon) and tried to load module from Boot Manager after having made a save-pup. Maybe I'm too accustomed to have everything just work?

I'm running Tuxx' version of Puppy 4.2 without any problem on the same laptop.
