@Smokey01
Sounds like a plan... (using notecase)

@kerl
If you know your English and have a logical mind, that's all you need to
be the "editor" of this newsletter. The "old dogs" can provide you with some
content, and you'll learn Puppy as you go.

BFN.

@oldtimers

If you are volunteering other people, maybe they should know that someone on this tread makes a 'living' doing mush ( ah much ) more in this same niche and in multiple languages. Rolling Eyes

Please Smokey01 if you know the tool go for the Notecase plan.
Actually Notecase + Social Bookmarking may complement each other well

@kerl, tomorrow I will write a little howto in notecase to demonstrate how easy it is to use.

Attached is a very short example which took me about 5 minutes.

Rename the file by removing the .gz extension.

You can then demonstration how Social Bookmarking works.
ShortExample.ncd.gz

About the DebianDogs, the product is excellent except -- as I understand
it from reading their first post -- they took refuge here because Debian
slashed their originating project a few years ago. Therefore they are
more Debian than Puppy.

<snip a bunch of stuff>


It is kind of a tangent, but to correct something that is wrong.

Debian Dog isn't here because of anything that Debian did. It was started on this forum as Pussy Linux (yeah I know) by forum member Sickgut several years ago. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69475 Sickgut left and others (Saintless and then Fredx) took over and named it Debian Dog.

While it is not a Puppy and I have no opinion of whether it belongs in a newsletter, it is absolutely a creature of this forum and nowhere else.

Anyone here remembering Pussy?

Oh yes!

All three kinds.

Two that I like to stroke and the one you are referring to.

What makes puppy, puppy?

How is it different from the majority of other distros?

As per puppylinux.com, to be official it has to be built with Woof-CE. To get the official tick in the box this may be true however, the things that make puppy different are:
1. The layered file system,
2. Frugal installations, and
3. Arguably sfs files.

Yep. Features found nowhere else in the Linux world, people.
Maybe I'd add
4. "Run as root".

kerl, back. smokey01 ty (about notecase)

I guess we're back on track. Do we have a deadline in the sense "we'll publish at"? I guess we'll be writing about personal interests which will make whatever we come up with or whatever it's named very frankestenian, which is an amazing in itself.

I'll start writing. Who compiles material? Kerl?

@kerl I hope you don't mind but I've already started working on the first edition. Some of the topics I suggest are: A basic editorial each month, a distro update, maybe a small biography about some of the significant contributors, various articles about tweaks, packages and developments.

I guess anything that people want to contribute should be considered. At times there will need to be some form of control so we don't lose our way. I don't think this should be a place to discuss highly controversial matters especially at the detriment of Puppy Linux or it's users.

If you have something you wish to contribute please email me at smokey01@internode.on.net.

If anyone else want to take on the task of editor I'm happy to step aside and be a contributor. I'm just helping get it started. We shall see what develops.

Cheers

Great! Many thanks Smokey01!

As for me, for this edition, maybe I'd like to contribute a little something to
showcase pekwm on Puppy. Can you suggest a word count for this article?
Or generally what would be your preferred format?

Edit: Almost forgot! What's your deadline/timeline? TIA

@musher0
I guess we are not restricted by word count although we should keep it short enough to be interesting but long enough to be conclusive. I guess if we need a number, how does <1000 words measure up?

As for a deadline, I've been thinking about this but haven't really nailed it.
I think we should put out a taster for the new year. My dilemma is, do we call it Jan-2017 and cover activities in December or do we call it December and release it in January? I'm thinking the former.

Hi all,
I've got a monumental cold so don't wait for me!
I'll check out smokey01’s notebook asap.
I can be useful asking newbie questions and being Mr. Kerl Bookmarker.
I see this more like a way to present interesting threads of the forum, links between them, projects and why are important, small how-to for advanced and newbie users..
I'd vote for a section called "make puppy look like xp" Smile
Of course there should be an option to subscribe by email. It'll be nice for casual visitors to be expecting the goodies of the forum on their mail box
