Tried twice to post a comment on your vid
See below.
Twice told an error occurred, subscribed, still a problem
Had the same thing with a SneakyLinux vid yesterday
Are google being evil to me?
Distrowatch have a special piece of code to ensure I am not the first poster - they maybe consider me some sort of Puppy Spammer?

Must curb my enthusiasm . . . Wink

Puppy is a participatory Linux. You learn to do stuff. We call it a do-acracy. By Christmas we will have more software. Further improvements. A derivative or two. Interest from Slackware developers and so on. http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SlackoNews

Hi All

Ok so first impressions of spot are very good indeed, its reading my 8Gb of ram no problems and seems very stable indeed, copied all my music and films to the hard drive with no issues at all. Plugged in my Orange Rio phone and it charged up straight away and asked me if I wanted to access the storage, let me access the 32Gb sd card onboard the phone so I am very happy indeed. I have now installed the MESA graphics driver and again no isuues and very fast operation, so glad the Acer is getting used properly at last. The frisbee wireless utility is perfect and allows the Acer to hold a wireless connection out the box so again thanks guys thats perfect.

Just installed Vendetta Online and all is perfect, smooth graphics and crips sound just hope xvidcap can record it and ill grab Micko and snog him. Smile

Thanks all more updates as I do em but for now i am really excited with Spot, happy days Smile

Hi All
So we have ripped a DvD, installed Gimp, Web Apps, Pidgin, Tor, Libre Office, Skype, Wine, Moonlight, Updated all the repos, VBox 4.1.4.2 and installed Windows 7 Pro to VBox without a hitch. All in all a perfect experience, my only wish is for GTKRecordmydesktop as xvidcap is dodgy to say the least. Is there any chance that we can get GTKrecordmydesktop .pet for slacko please.
