Puppy Linux newsletter (english version) received via facebook and Puppyluver. what about notecase ? i suppose few of us were using it before

drunkjedi, there is something funny when i see what applications are used with debian/puppy mixture. Sure xhyppo and notecase are not bad apps because they are older than newest (which don't work, broken)... Our Toutou 436 in fact was in advance... Howver they need to be tested. Because there are perhaps rusted I am glad that ours devs come to my policy : 'don't judge relating to the age of things, but how much people can trust them'
Newest versions of notecase will need our passengers to learn it as the older version. I am surprised of how you consider that people know Linux, things that devs are unable to do, they as their passengers do it themselves (compile drivers for instance).
There is an item 'compiling' in Puppy Linux newsletter. You want us to go again at school, we just want to play with our computer. When my english will be perfect, i will go the next step.

Sorry about that, greengeek. Fixed and reposted above. What's really annoying is that I caught that error in my own copy of PNI.txt, but forgot to make the correction in the posted copy.

How do you assemble the text file? Not manually I hope - that would be a real drag. Is there some way for notecase to export it's index?

I just read the newsletter and add records to the index as I go. It's not worth going to the trouble of trying to automate the process, for two reasons: 1) I'm going to read (or at least skim) the whole newsletter anyway, and 2) there's no practical way to automate the creation of the Description field, which I hope users of the index file are finding helpful.

It may not be obvious, since most of the Descriptions are quite brief, but I spend a fair amount of time composing these, so that the average non-expert Puppy user will have some idea what an article is about. When an article deals with a specialized topic, the Title alone can be meaningless to the average user. The Description also provides a place for me to work in keywords that can be picked up in a search, for example using the fields.awk database tool, or even just grep; this enhances the usefulness of the index file.

I was thinking of doing a section about the lost Puppy programs.

Something like lost treasurers.
Forgotten Puppy programs.
etc...

Go see what I could find, that was specific programs written for Puppy, but have not usually been in a Puppy version.
I know some really good stuff was written just for Puppy and the Puppy way of operating.
We are Puppy. Cool
Resistance is futile. Shocked
You will be assimilated. Very Happy

What do you think?


@bigpup: lost treasures sounds like a good idea.


This is not going to be as simple as I was thinking.
A lot of those lost forgotten programs, are so old, they just do not work in the Puppies we now have.

I have found a few good old programs, but the pet packages were made on older Puppies.
The program installs, but will not run.

I found one that I really tried to debug.
When I was finished. I had basically written a new pet package and a new program.

I was not looking to do that, with this idea for an article in the newsletter.

Off the top of my head I can't remember any really old programs that are better than the newer ones. I may have to crack open some very old iso's to remind myself.

Well, I guess Puppy has developed like other operating systems.
Hard to use stuff made for a really early version in the now newest versions.
Too much code has changed.

I am still looking for some Puppy specific programs, that were great breakthroughs in Puppy simple, clean coding.

I was thinking it should be listed on the main Puppy info page.
Someplace in this section of the page.
