Maybe contribute to Lobster for the best humor in this thread?

Seriously, I appreciate the ideas and data that you all have contributed thus far.

I like best emil's "Puppy Foundation", but that requires someone to organize and control it. Maybe impossible, at least difficult. Next choice would be Barry's notion of a "Puppy Developer's Award". I think, from what you have all said, the most immediate solution is to contribute directly to Barry and let him disseminate it as he chooses.

Some of you, and a number of others have helped me in the past.I thank all of you who have provided me with direct solutions to the questions and problems I've posed over the years.

Puppy Foundation may be a good idea, especially if you want Puppy to because easier to use (no command line stuff needed)



Then there are alternative currencies like bitcoin, or timeshare schemes

Also, what do people think about using Google Summer of Code scheme to help development - inkscape has benefited from this?

Are you suggesting applying to become a mentoring organisation for the Google Summer of Code? Or organising a similar "Puppy Summer of Code"?

I don't think Puppy would have any chance of being accepted for the former. Puppy doesn't even have an organisation, anyway Wink

PostPosted: Fri 09 Dec 2011, 12:42    Post subject: keeping puppy mirrors alive, specifically brainwave  

Hello, I would like to in most cases NOT to ask for donations as, the hosting of the brainwave repo, has been coming of my wallet, for the last two years , without asking for anything in return, as I did it solely out of love for all the awesomeness puppy does for people

But now, with my mother having stage 3 cancer, I can no longer afford the bill for hosting

If I could I would pay for the hosting indefinitely, en gratis( spanish for free as in freedom)

But I simply can not

If any puppians can make a donation towards making puppy great(er) it would be appreciated, regardless if it's for brainwave or not

my paypal for donations is Frag-artists (AT) hotmail.com

If you are able to help any

Thanks!

What about server costs? I assume this forum and puppylinux.org is ran off of a server Barry is running right?

Servers need upgrading? More hard drive space for "Puppy Cloud Idea" more RAM faster CPU.

No, Barry doesn't have anything to do with this forum (apart from endorsing it). John Murga runs it.

I think Barry may have had something to do with puppylinux.org in the past, but not anymore. (I may be wrong about this)
