Subject description: You named it. Give us a description!
 

If you are the author of this program, I thank you for a fine addition to Puppy Linux and please do not be upset by me using you as an example.

Look at this tittle to a post in Additional Software (Pets N' Stuff):

acpid-1.0.8-i486 pet package for Puppy 4.1.x

Could you tell what it is, what it does, what's it for, or anything by this tittle? I sure could not. A one line description would help to inform us.
This is a program I have been looking for and knew it was here somewhere.

This is what it is:

Press power button to shutdown your puppy & power off computer.
A simple script to turn on power button support and set the config for puppy ... Walla ... press power button and puppy will now shutdown and computer will power-off.

Works on Puppy 4.3.1 not sure about others.

Need I say more?

Oh, great lord of teh PETs forum, it's alright. I'm sure the acpid guy forgives you, my lord.

Of course not, sir.

I am sorry to let you down and I'm saying this in the name of the whole Puppy community. Sorry for doing bad to your organized and well-structured PETs forum, oh great PETs lord.

Please don't hurt me, commander.

Ummm ... enough with games. Open your eyes and look how messy the forum is now, thanks to you. All PETs get posted to the main forum and the whole thing is all messed up.

You really should stop treating people here as your soldiers. You can't tell people what to do and how to do it. You can't take over this forum and do whatever you want with it.

You failed when you tried to make things better, so please, if you care about Puppy and this forum, stop doing whatever it is that made this forum so crappy. The forum looked way better before you stepped in.

Sorry for being so sincere. Wink
