I wonder if anyone can bring my Puppeee back to life?

I have a little Asus EEEPC (701-4gb) and after trying various light weight OSs I found Jeminah in her early days and fell in love with her and her puppeee. I kept pace with early development through to RC1 which worked like a perfect dream and did not require me, an old dog, to learn new tricks (Sudo and Grub, so-to-speak).

I lost touch with developments as Puppeee became more sophisticated and really (to me) non-relevant. In a weak minded moment a month ago I forgot my family motto (“If it aint broke don’t fix it”) and installed the latest version (4.4?). The only real difference I noticed was it didn’t work in hotel and McDonalds hot spots as we vacationed in France and Spain. I messed around with it and just made it worse. Decided to roll back to RC1 and on return home went to www.puppeee.com only to get WebFaction’s message “Site not configured”.

So, PLEASE, does any kind person still have the RC1 files (or an ISO) and if so would they be able to send same to me?

I have the following files saved on a flash drive and if anyone needs these I would be happy to mail them: eee-513.sfs, ze513357.sfs and Compiz-0.8.6-1.sfs (whatever that is!).

Also Puppeee sfs packages can be found here:

http://smokey01.com/jemimah/sfs/

Some of the .pet packages can be found here:

http://smokey01.com/jemimah/pet/

As I recall the above links have most if not all of the apps available in the Puppeee Pet Store. The packages that are in Puppeee 1.0 ppm are found at:

http://smokey01.com/jemimah/pet_repo/

Hopefully that helps.

Thanks to all who pointed me in the right direction – and so quickly too. I feel a right lemon (aarf: in British English a lemon is a fool!) not to have found this for myself but my google search for Puppeee only gave me two pages of dead links to Jemimah’s pages. I gave up before moving on to page three! To my shame, Embarassed as all my American family live and work in The Triangle scant miles from Chapel Hill, I had never visited IBIBLIO before. Thanks guys – it is an absolute treasure trove/Alladin’s Cave and you have made my day!

Aarf: You cant possibly be older than I, but undoubtedly you are wiser! For me Puppee1.0 was not a(n American) “lemon” as my needs were unusually minimal. I bought the 701 (same as yours I think) just to do one thing: read Gutenberg books in large print (vision problems) lying in bed with FBReader. I soon found it was more handy when traveling to stop for a Big Mac rather than try to find an internet cafe downtown to check web mail, so that was a bonus, as was Skype and google maps. Apart from setting up the desktop I never have used other applications so dont know how bitter they might be. I only type on the keyboard in dire need using a magnifying glass and a toothpick. Despite this, now that I have RC1 safely on a flash drive I will give 4.4 another whirl (I dont have a totally closed mind Wink). Thanks for the pointer to Luci. Strange to say I have it/her ready to try. Not so strange really as I had noted (amongst many others over the years - I have been on this forum before but it made me reregister yesterday Mad ) your earlier post to gregmc1000! My wife now has a kindle and a really smart phone but I am perfectly happy with my old Eeepc and have no wish to upgrade.

I for one hope that not only does puppeee.com comes back, but also Jemimah and her development.

For me, every time I think of some great improvement for puppy, I find that its already there on my eeepc. Without a doubt I find puppeee, and fluppy, to be the best all round and complete Puppy there is. Shame that it is getting a little long in the tooth, with so many other advancements in the greater puppy world.

Darkcity, I do hope the answer is yes. Jemimah is badly missed by me (and doubtless many others) – she did so much in such a short time and a lesser person would not have been able to cope with all the feedback, bug reports, questions as her project matured. In the early days I took advantage of her time generous “If you don’t understand, just ask me!” Much of what she did later was way over my head but her clearly written tutorials were spot-on and I went back to them over and over again. I never saved her blog as I assumed I would always be able to visit puppeee.com. Little did I know!
I do hope Jemimah is okay and if she reads this will send a few words to her fan club!

Back again darkcity like a bad penny!
When I follow links I end up with Pupeee 4.2 (with one p) - this is not Jemimah's little Puppeee at all!!
Have you any other suggestions?
How can I tell if my saved files (Ze513357 SFS 6520kb and Eee-513 SFS 108,136kb) are Puppeee 4.4 rc1 or rc2? As aarf has the celeron version maybe he could see from the size of my files if his are the same?
Before I found Puppeee I tried Pupeee by Luther349 - he gave way, presumably to Jemimah, on his last post on 08 Oct 2010 "a new guy took over the pupeee name heh. seems he did alot more then i could. so give his distro a run".
As suggested by aarf I am taking luci out for a walk - but I am in no way going to desert Puppeee!

Sorry for the confusion I thought Pupeee was Puppeee with spelling missing.

After searching for about twenty mins I can't find anywhere to download any other Puppeee than 1.0 Sad
