@Ed

Thanks for the podcast! - interesting, useful.

2 sections of this podcast have mutual relevance, your sister and security. So how come?

Well, if you explain to your sister that banks in Australia are now recommending that on-line banking customers should be using live CDs (I believe Puppy was specifically recommended for this), she might then get a better understanding of why EXE and COM files are maybe not such a wonderful idea after all. They can contain viruses and stuff for example.

Might be possible for XP to function as a live CD somehow, but would almost certainly suffer security problems even if it was possible to create such a thing.

Too much to hope for, that Microsoft would have an understanding of this need?

Thanks Jack

There are some (of dubious legality) XP live disks - probably with added trojan for good measure
While I have your attention - know anything about the Wepad - a German slate/webpad?
http://l.pr/a4crp/

You will learn more from new users than you can imagine
Yesterday I set up CUPS printing with my sister
- you may remember early Puppys did not print at all . . .

First of all she was shocked that the printer was not auto-recognized like on the Mac and the latest XP and Vistas.
We set it up easily enough by following the instructions
Her comment "Puppy is a bit technical isn't it?"
Compared with just plugging in the printer - she is right. Rolling Eyes

from a PM - part of which I quote

Quote:
All Chinese dialects on the mainland (except possibly Mongolian, Tibetan and whatever they speak in the North West) use exactly the same "simplified" characters. So, even if you speak Shanghainese version of Chinese you can still understand written Mandarin even if you can't speak it and vice versa. At least that is my understanding. So if puppy is available with Chinese simplified script almost any developer in mainland China can read it.


Good news -
xie xie (thank you)

Quote:
Are there any Hindi Puppies in the works? There are loads of developers in India.


There has been some interest expressed
I am not aware of any Hindi Puppys - most developers in India know English

@Ed

Just yesterday as it happens, Slashdot had an interesting contribution on tablets and talking about how the future looks for this class of device.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/tablet-islate-ipad-netbook-notebook,9929.html

They use the example of an already long-since-available tablet - with similarities to the one you mention and make the point that these are, or have been to date, spectacularly unsuccessful.

I don't agree though with all of what they say there - personally speaking. Potential end-user interest in tablets must surely exist to a greater or lesser extent - depending on the extent of ones needs for portability and functionality in the workplace for example. These gadgets appear to me to have a useful potential for data retrieval. Linux could provide the essential security base on these gadgets.

The article is in no way pro Apple iPad. That much I do agree with.

They also make the point that Microsoft doesn't seem to have a clue about how to make a good desktop interface for tablets. The current full XP-style desktop interface is useless for the purpose. They (MS) seem to be totally unwilling to put in the necessary effort that it would take to develop a really effective user interface for tablets.

May well be though, that with the apparent runaway success of the Google Linux-based Android platform, a knock-on effect will emerge that will help to encourage the take-up of tablets.

Thanks for taking the time to do the pawedcasts! I like what you said about supporting puplets. Hits home with me because I did grab teenpup legacy a few days ago and try it out but have not posted any feedback. Same with Lighthouse. I see my pattern now though, if I try something and it works for me, I get on the forum and post away, as with dpup and PAW. I'm a big fan of dpup and PAW. But if I'm going to really be involved I have to also give feedback on stuff that doesn't work out for me.

Also got a few laughs, you're a funny (dare I say quirky?) guy.

Pawedcasts seem a bit louder now, Lobster. I always used to have trouble hearing them even with headphones.

I hadn't realised how pretty the visualisations were in Gxine before today. Or maybe I have finally lost all of my critical faculties. I used to dislike the ones in Mediaplayer intensely.

LOL
I lost mine a long time ago by staring at psychedelic
patterns. Glad the sound is better.

Next time I hope to record directly once again using Puppy Quirky and Precord.
Hopefully someone else might have a go too . . . Cool

Interesting, the second pawedcast I download.

I like it, good job. I agree with you about the difference between wooflets and plain puplets, wooflets indeed require more work but often push Puppy forward more than puplets Smile

And by the way: Igulender? Wish I could just change my nick to my first name Smile
