For me that's an embarassingly huge amount of money to be given.
Okay, I need to have some kind of web page where I outline what incoming money gets spent on ...recently there have been hardware purchases, stuff that I need for testing Puppy ...so, I'll use that $100 for some more purchases, for example I want to purchase a couple of different models of wlan pci cards.

Lobster, if you do any more reviews, keep the money!
You put in such an incredible amount of effort into the Wiki and general helping out on the forum, and that has a great value in my mind.

A selfless and very generous deed, Lobster. You're a credit to all exo-skeletoned life forms everywhere.

I look forward to reading the review.

Nice one Very Happy

Found an error:

My Workstation OS: Puppy Linux wrote:
My system is an Athlon 2000 with 256KB memory and a 16MB Voodoo PCI card. I was going to put another 256KB of RAM in and run Solaris. Instead I went the other way; simpler has less to go wrong. My previous OS was Windows XP, which I think is excellent, but I was spending too much time protecting it and cleansing the registry and so on. I spent 30% of my time maintaining the OS.


Surely 256KB should say 256MB. Hopefully they'll allow a correction.

While you're at it, you might change "maintaining the OS" to "maintaining Windows" to be clear you're not talking about Puppy. And, two paragraphs further on, change "DotPup tends contains more" to "DotPups tend to contain more" to correct the grammar.

The article is an excellent introduction to Puppy Linux.
