What is this ttuuxxx? You lowered the bar! I was frantically posting as many posts as I can to meet this 1000 limit and now you lowered it ! Laughing

I updated my update above,lol ok only yorkiesnorkie can have 462 everybody else 1000 post min, and congrats jamesbond your 1000 post is in site, only 194 left, that usually takes me between 1-2 weeks for about 200 post give or take. Really it depends on responses, like the start of 2.14x was really quick, tons of post, but as it matures less and less feedback/responses etc.

I liked to have a pristine Internet connected Linux set up in 3 minutes.

Puppy Lucid does it now - direct to desktop with a few simple mouse clicks you are done.
Puppy Lucid however is more complex and I have more needs and expectations.
For example look and feel - now I customise, that takes a while.
Browser choice is great but takes time.
And Quickpet has so much I now consider essential . . .
So much to try . . .
Bit torrent, chat program, desktop recorder.
So the 15 minutes can quickly extend into an hour.

It took me over 200 hours to set up Wary the first time. To see how close I could come to your 15 minutes today I started with a pristine Lucid. It took me two hours to get it about halfway set up. This includes Opera, the modem connection and even printer setup. However, an hour and ten minutes of this time was installing and using wbar for the first time. I had a few hiccups getting wbar to run after reboots.

I don’t know how much of my first setup I really need or want. Is a larger cursor really necessary? PupClockset? (For sniping on eBay I need an accurate and clearly visible clock with seconds.) Wine, a biggie to install? (Easier to just reboot Windows.) Another wallpaper setter? Emelfm? Themes? Barry? This is the BlackBerry backup utility, one I installed from a tarball I found who knows where and I didn’t keep the sources or tar or anything. Maybe I could move my Barry installation from Wary? Again easier to just reboot XP.

It looks like I can get a finished product in less than four hours. Not bad from 200 down to 4. But I still like Wary better than Lucid and I still don't like wbar.

Let’s see, at a hundred posts per day I can become respectable in ten days... that is if the bar isn’t raised for me. Smile Once upon a time I held the record for number of posts per day on Yahoo groups, 3,000+ -- hundreds of one-liners calling names interspersed with some real substance. I was one capitalist “debating” four very vocal socialists. I guess with that many posts I had some real legitimacy there. Laughing

Number of posts as a guide to trustfulness can be helpful but what about guys who don't argue a lot and do some real work!

Radky's first post to this forum was to introduce one of his utilities.

He has to date only posted 97 times yet his utilities are trusted and, in the case of PupControl particularly, widely praised and indispensible.

ya but we've only really had about 5 people out of the 27,500 users on here like that, So the 1000 post sticks, lol
as PupControl goes 2.14X has had a control panel for well over a year. I found this small Control Panel app when we were building 4.2. It works very well.
The author is also very nice, before you had to click the writing to execute the app and clicking on the picture did nothing, So I asked the author to change it to the icon also and within a day he had it changed at his website

Wondering how to save a pet?

I am new to .pets, have just started using Lucid 5.2 (like it), and am on dialup. I am using quickpets but see no option to save before installation.

Hi Py I would check /tmp for the files.
Also I would contact 5.2 and ask for tickboxs to save the pets in /root/Downloads
That makes more sense than fishing around in /tmp

If the strange, active kid who is in search of remote machines does exist, then the closed door is not a bad solution i think.

You really think a closed door is going to keep an intruder out? If all the doors are closed then nothing from the web can get in. If anything is allowed in, then there's always some way to hitch a ride on what comes through that door.

I usually get pets with SeaMonkey (or other browser), not Quickpet.
