A friend and I wanted to open a cafe' with web access to the customers. 10+ computers to just surf web. The main thing stopping us was the junk that the customers would download to the computers. We would be working on them more than washing diskes.
What are your thoughts? P-III, 256meg RAM+, CD-R, no HD. Just give out a 25˘ cd (with the Pup onboard) when you get your coffe or donut. Or better yet collect a $ as a donation to the Puppy Linux cause. Good idea, bad idea, ugly????

Sounds like an excellent idea to me. Maybe put more RAM than 256 MB in the computers, and make it a multisession CD so your customers can save what they download. That, and good food, should keep them coming back for more. Good luck.

As long as you sell pizzaburgers, the food part will not be a problem. I'd drive 30 miles for a pizzaburger. No one seems to make them anymore. Maybe it's just me, but I think they taste better than any other burger (even better than DQ's Flamethrower, but it's a close one). Add in the internet part, and you'll have a money factory. A fast, maintenance-free internet setup and pizzaburgers. It doesn't get any better! Razz

Many years ago while visiting friend who lived on a Mississippi river bayou I ate lunch with them which was a crawdad(crayfish) gumbo but didn't find out until after I had already eaten it.

I would, but it's hard to find round-trip tickets to Australia for $31.80, and even if I could, that would leave me with nothing to buy the burger with. Sad So I guess I have to settle for Flamethrowers and the occasional pizzaburger.

That was it...worked great.......but once again ppl couldn't follow instructions or wouldn't read them properly and got sick of answering dumb ass questions where the answers were in the text.....That's why anything I develop now I'm going to do it for myself.....Just spent WAYYYYYYYYYY too much time writing documentation only for ppl not to read it or just skim over it and still expect things to work.........

People are strange beasts. I never read documentation - if I can avoid it - even when essential. I really am unreasonable - I expect a program to be so obvious and intuitive that it works the way I expect - not the way that is easiest to program. I guess I am your worst nightmare (no probably not Smile
Embarassed

Despite all this I think most of us are sociable and want any work we do to be shared and used.

Programming (sometimes known as the 'dark art') is a form of magic - or more accurately conjuring - everything is in the presentation . . .

Like most skilled programmers presentation does not interest you - tricky . . .
Whatever you decide I fully support your efforts which I know in the past have gone unappreciated (I do not use Wi-fi - otherwise I would be more supportive)

Be kind to the new pups - or at least chew slowly before swallowing . ..

The multisession cd would be good.
probably modify it so that you don't have to choose option 5 on the first boot.

Anything they download, they will take away.
Next time they come back, they bring their cd, all their stuff is on it, email, settings, history.
