leave my pipe out of it......

it took MANY hours, especially as when I started I had no idea of the wget command and did the downloading by manually

I have had a script written by sfr (thanks again) to collate numbers, only half way through (it's still very time consuming and I've been a little badly lately but so far):

out of 330/555 pages, 72000 files, 1.22Tb and 261000 page views

there are over 3500 puppy builds archived, this has nearly fitted a terrabyte drive, saving for more space

I started at puppy 4.12 and used it to repair my windows builds, after a while the penny dropped and I moved to puppy full time, probably about 6-7 years ago, slacko 5.3.3 was a long term favourite but currently running tahr 6.0.5

Wow, Ally! Such patience and determination!

You're due a never-ending string of thanks! Very Happy

You should be voted "Puppy All-Time Hero"! Smile

~~~~~~~~
Regarding the question itself, I remember member pelo had started a similar thread
on the French side a few years ago. Maybe ask him to backtrack to that thread:
with his Internet research skills, he'll find it in a wink.

IIRC, we used the views on this forum as a guide, and it showed that Puppyists
had viewed the Puppy version 2 thread initiated by ttuuxxx +/- 1.2 million times.

If from that result we subtract the number of those who come here only to watch
the sunset Wink, it's still a respectable number.

BFN.

poll is mostly just to let posters up the counter.

if youre here and never use puppy, you can still up a counter-- theres one for you if you really want it. the percentages probably wont mean much.


I use puppy 528 all the time.

I know of someone who uses puppy 4.2 all the time without knowing what it is
I know of someone who uses puppy 528 all the time without caring what it is
I know of someone who uses puppy 528 maybe once a month.
I know of someone who used it once at the most perhaps so far.

I have introduced puppy to the folks above as a tool so solve a problem. It solves the problem for them and thus they use it.

+1 to what Musher said.

Jeeesus, Ally, all this time I thought you couldn't possibly be one person, or either you were a real (non-mythical) hydra-headed beast with freak internet-puppy upload organizing skills Very Happy Seriously, if we have an all-time Battlestar-Galactica-like Final Five, you are one of them. And if by chance you're not hydra-headed but instead look like 'seven-of-nine', well, then, in my book you automatically move to head of the Final Five list and let me know where I can sign up to serve on your battle cruiser!!

archivists are that cool. i would probably take one, male or female, even if they were 'four-out-of-ten'!

it started as I thought it sad that peoples hard work faded away, then it was sort of fun, then it was sort of awful and now it's just an ocd thing

when the archive kindly granted permission to create a dedicated page it took me 6 months to upload all the files I had, this was several hours a day on a crappy rural broadband, my package was not unlimited as purchased now and it cost a fortune in charges

I've spent 6 hours so far today downloading browsers, drivers, kernels and office files for dedicated pages and I've yet to upload them (my son is playing COD and he gets upset when I beast the connection!), on the plus side I've found an additional dozen puppy builds including some interesting Mass Spectrometry ones - nice!

@ally -- I have some older Pups archived away, including some that date back to the really early days and were dug back up during an attempt by others to catalog them, on a secondary partition of my SSD. If you'd like a list of what I've got, I can get you that -- PM me, please. I also have Google Drive, so I can get them to you that way, should it prove necessary.

@ally

I think we all owe you a great big thank you for your time, effort and expense in organizing Puppy archives like you have done.

I'm rather interested in the Mass Spectrometry pups you mentioned and what hardware was used with it.
Any info and links would be greatly appreciated.

And thank you once again.

I'd like to add my voice to this remark as well -- as well as an apology for not saying it myself Embarassed

I should be counted 2 'coz the wife has also been using the Pup in the office since 2005.

Or should be counted 4 if we count the 4 machines where the Pup is installed (2 laptops and 2 desktops).
