I'm sure I could manage three of the four items you suggested.

The best part about writing an article is it's not interactive 😃 no back and forth so your heart should be safe.

It's a bit quiet in here. March deadline is fast approaching, 7 days.

I got two from you bigpup but they look the same.

If articles are dropped onto the newsletter webpage with the same filename, the older one will be overwritten. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing, yet.

I am still getting it clear on how to submit a item.
Still learning the process and tree structure thing.
I have a bad habit of submitting something and than realizing I forgot something.
The second version was a correction to the first.
Sorry! Embarassed

I just do not think enough people know about the news letter.
Things may be slow for a few months.

I still think, putting a link at the top of the forum start page, would be the thing to do.
As a topic in Puppy Power, it is a little hard to find.

I asked Flash about doing this, but he never replied back an answer.

Uploaded a submission earlier this evening. Slightly exceeded the word-count limit, which I didn't know about.

Hi bigpup.

Maybe we could consider alternatives? How about asking
-- Mick Amadio to link it on the http://puppylinux.com site
and
-- whoever is in charge of the http://puppylinux.org site?

Also there is another Puppy forum, isn't there? How about we ask its
admin if he'd find it useful to post a link to the Newsletter there?

Finally -- that I know of, there may be more -- PuppyLinux has a section
at LinuxQuestions:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/puppy-71

Just a couple of ideas.

BFN.

Good ideas!

Somebody has already put a link to the newsletter on this site.
It is at top right of first page.

Quote:

I looked for a way to contact him on the web site. Did not find it.
I will send him a PM from this forum web site.

Hey Kerl - could you add a link into the first post explaining how to upload (maybe another link to smokeys page with an "upload" tag?).
cheers!

The link in the first post already goes straight to the page where you can upload. Did you have something else in mind?

Yes, its just that the link in the first post looks like it is for people who want to subscribe to the newsletter feed - I just thought it would be handy to have a separate link (even if it goes to the same place...) labelled something like Upload article here

(I know how to access the upload link now, but it wasn't obvious to me a couple of days ago). It's just my combo of Aspergers, dementia, and domestic blindness. Embarassed

@oldyeller: Thanks

Something I've heard quite a bit over the years is: "One of the short comings of Linux is the lack of game support".

I'm not the right person to agree or refute this as I don't play games. What I have heard is Linux can run steam and steam can run many modern games. Again I don't know if this is true or not.

It would be nice if someone with the knowledge could write an article about steam. Some information that would be useful is:

Is it available for Linux?
Is it available for 32 and 64bit?
Are the packages available for Puppy like Distros?
How to install it?
How do you use it?
What games will run with it?

Obviously there are many more questions but hopefully this is enough to entice someone to write an article.

At least steam 1.0.0.45 is in Ubuntu repository for Trusty Tahr 32bit.

I don't play computer games as well, so I won't test.

Since I seem to be the only gamer around here, I'll have to maybe try writing an article on linux gaming sooner or later.
