I suggest you make the main, full topic, in the "How to" section of the forum.
Make an article in the newsletter, about it.
Give a link to the "How to topic".

In the newsletter give information about it.
What it is.
What it can do.
Why you would want to use it.
Why it is better.
Give example of using it.
A review.
Etc....

This is a newsletter not a forum.

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.

That is a wonderful Idea.

May I suggest sending a PM to our beloved Pelo.
That man's archeological skills are legendary.
I wonder how he finds those old stuff.
He may even have a list.

"Notecase is very easy to learn and use."
I will help if i had something to inform that can be helpfull about 'old' stuff perhaps, but i am not so much an user of old apps. My purpose when i came to Puppy was to change from Windows, which was the OS provided by the airline boss, to all employees.
Second purpose : keep my english alive.
Third purpose : run an OS fast and with apps free of charge to allow me practicing my hobbies.
Programs and makings Puppies are not included in my goals. Only to help myself as i would do with my car, for light breakdowns.
My rule was using yet existing apps of Puppy, and learn how to do with them. That is the reason why i browse the forum to test apps and check which one please me and still work. Because many things don't work , perhaps more now than before.
That is a more featured answer to a PM Received.
Notecase : i tried it, very fast.. Need some practice.

Whenever I publish a newsletter I usually receive a few emails. Some to say thanks, others to identify errors or suggestions. This time I have received none so I am assuming this is a good thing.

Although I have a couple of people doing the proof reading it's still possible for a couple of errors to sneak through. This is usually because I miss the correction. To make this process a bit easier I have registered a copy of Notecase Pro which has spell checking built in.
There are some differences in the file format between Notecase 1.9.8 and the Pro version but I can work around that.

Previously I have tried writing articles in Abiword/LibreOffice and copying them into Notecase. The problem: I have to re-create links and images which is a pain. I also tried CherryTree which includes Spell Checking, but, it will not export a Notecase file although it will import one.

Spell checking in one application while making the corrections in another is simply painful.

Next month I will use Notecase Pro 4.2.6 so let's see how that works. Hopefully it will be more successful. Readers should be able to use Notecase 1.9.8 to read the article.

If anyone has a better suggestion I would be happy to hear it.

Thanks

My only feeling about it is that the old notecase provided in Puppies is not being developed any more so may stop working in terms of needing old libs and so on. I think I read somewhere of some people having an issue like that already, but maybe they found a fix?

Hi William.

Yeah, that was in the DPupStretch-7 thread perhaps 3 weeks ago.

I think jamesbond and ttuuxxx collaborated on sort of a remake of
notecase. They had to alter the original code to get it on the rails again
with DpupStretch's glibc 2.24. Maybe I remember some details wrong,
but it was something like that.

How about using a simple html template for the PupLin-Newsletter? Html is
as universal a format as you can get these days. Abiword can save in it,
also aOO, LO, Seamonkey, etc.

BFN.

Evil or Very Mad notecase, a newer version will not do better if users as me never used it before. We must learn how to use it first, it's not a question of version.

PostPosted: Sun 02 Apr 2017, 05:06    Post subject: Psip (PuppyPhone)  

Re: the article on Psip (PuppyPhone) in the April17 edition....

I think the reason that up-to-date versions of Psip (PuppyPhone) are not appearing in recent woof-ce puppy builds is that they are not available in the repository, e.g. see:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14.2/
and there is no entry in:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/Packages-puppy-slacko14.2-official

so the one that is used is the very old one in Packages-puppy-common-official
puppyphone-1.2-psip32-1-w5.pet

and also there is not a petbuild for Psip (PuppyPhone) - again e.g. see:
https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/petbuilds/tree/slacko_142

And there doesn't seem to be an active forum thread for Psip (PuppyPhone) (or have I missed it??)

If up-to-date 32-bit and 64-bit versions can be made available then they can be uploaded and will appear in builds....

I thought slacko had the latest both 32 and 64bit. I also thought 01micko had a fair bit to do with woof-ce so it's odd it hasn't been included.

Now that the info is in the April newsletter anyone can build it.

Here's the latest PNI.txt file (Puppy Newsletter Index) updated through the June 2017 newsletter.

Also, here's a PET for version 1.3 of the PNI sorter application. It adds a "Puppy Newsletter Index Sorter" entry to the Document submenu. The sorter app expects to find the PNI.txt file in either ~/Downloads or ~/my-documents

It's been tested in both Puppy 4.1.2 and TahrPup 6.0.6.
