If you really want to put the cherry on the Klingon Racht, then here's the font used in the LCARS display.

If you have conky, you could use this font to really make it blend in with the picture.

I have two USB flash drives, one 16GB flash drive by SanDisk and reports itself as "SanDisk Cruser", and the other one of 4GB but I don't know what company owns the brand, but it says "Birdhouse Skatedrive" on it and it reports itself as "USB DISK 2.0". The SanDisk one has Fatdog64 version 710 installed on it and the Birdhouse drive has tahrpup64 version 6.0.5 installed. Here are screenshots of the systems.

Fatdog64 version 710


tahrpup64 version 6.0.5


They may look very generic, but I don't care much about that. Also, the black creature from the Fatdog64 screenshot is one of those slug creatures from the Slugterra series, more specifically the Flatulorhinkus Megamorph Velocity form, did you even know that TV series existed???

so that set-up stays.

What's an inline thumbnail anyway? Sounds like in-line dancing or an
ingrown nail... Maybe I'm missing a nuance here, English is not my
mother tongue.

Anyway, normally, the urls show in a post, and there are no urls showing,
in blue or in black, in rufwoof's post above.

Please notice that I said "there are no urls showing," and not "I can't see
the URLs", because it's a fact, not a perception.

BFN.

Thanks Souleau. That font isn't in the in the Debian main repo, so I used http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/swiss-911/ to enter the desired text, set the colour, background and size ... and then dropped the preview into the wallpaper Smile

... and of course you run Puppy safely, multi-boot DVD with no HDD or fileshares, nothing else on the same LAN segment and firmware write/burn protected? Or do you run as root where the likes of a browser breakout potentially leaves remote control at escalated (root) privilege level able to do pretty much anything that you might do as root from the keyboard (such as forwarding out copies of partition tables before replacing them with rubbish)?

Firefox is one of the best for hackers as they kindly provide them with target vectors for anyone not running the latest patched versions https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/known-vulnerabilities/

Look, rufwoof, if you don't understand what off-topic means, it's on you.

If you want to discuss Puppy security, there's about 100 threads about it on
this forum, so just pick the one most appropriate for your angle.

If you want to show off your capacities, open a new thread for each of them.

This thread is not the place. It's unfortunate that I have to play policeman,
but that's what one has to do nowadays on this laissez-faire forum to keep
a minimum of consistency in the threads.

As to how I manage security on my computer, I have no lesson to receive
from someone like yourself, who takes forum regulations lightly AND TRIES
TO TAKE PEOPLE FOR A RIDE -- BECAUSE the post you're talking about has
NO URL'S OR PICTURE LINKS WHATSOEVER IN THEM.

Besides, In the more than 20 years I have been computing, I never had a
virus problem or other attack. So maybe I'm doing something right.

You're acting like a teen-ager testing limits on his dad. Do that with your
own dad, not with me. Not mocking elders or people with more experience
that yourself in a field is a sign of maturity.

Regards.

You need to look at your own last handful+ of posts in this thread ... OFF TOPIC. My post have included images ... just your decapitated setup prevents you from seeing them. So please refrain from acting as a 'policeman' and making personal attacks such as

Proof, please, preferably in the form of a screen capture. Ghostery has found
nothing to block on the forum, 0 adware, etc.

Flash is a laissez-faire moderator, but he's technically keen and keeps this
forum running like a champ.

So go tell your claptrap somewhere else.

BFN.

this one of mine

If you click the 'quote' button associated with that message you'll see content
Code:
[quote="rufwoof"]I used mtpaint to transform the colours (hue) so that that starship wallpaper looks like its on red-alert.

As I use pcmanfm --desktop for desktop icons (and wallpaper) I added a script to detect whether booted as though a full install ... in which case the normal wallpaper is used, or a frugal install ... in which case the red-alert wallpaper is used i.e. ...

added
<StartupCommand>sleep 6;/home/user/bin/wallpaper-liveboot.sh</StartupCommand>
to .jwmrc where that script runs
[code]#!/bin/bash
TST=`cat /proc/cmdline | grep UUID`
if [ -z "$TST" ]
then
  pcmanfm --set-wallpaper=/home/user/Pictures/schematic_1280x800-liveboot.png
else
  pcmanfm --set-wallpaper=/home/user/Pictures/schematic_1280x800.png
fi[/code]
For Debian I use pure Debian repositories only, no contrib nor non-free and have a cut-down version installed as though a full install along with live-boot also being installed so a empty /live/filesystem.squashfs (main sfs) can be booted where the full install is the save area (partition based save folder). A frugal type install, but with a empty main.sfs and everything in the "savefolder", which enables sfs's to be loaded and the option to boot without any changes being saved (persistence persistence-read-only kernel boot parameter). I do also have a script similar to save2flash that supports flushing changes to disk if so desired (on demand).

More often I boot as though a full install nowadays, but the frugal choice is handy as you can delete .mozilla and .cache/mozilla folders before starting firefox in a frugal boot ... which starts firefox clean (no bookmarks, addons/extensions ...etc.). Frugal is also handy for trying things out (testbed) where a reboot 'undoes' all of the changes.

It took a few tries of using mtpaint's Effects, Transform Colours, Hue (slider) to get the desired red-alert type colours, but the final result is pleasing.

Normal
[url=https://postimg.org/image/cw2fyseqd/][img]https://s26.postimg.org/cw2fyseqd/image.jpg[/img][/url]

Red Alert (frugal ... reminder to manually save if desired)
[url=https://postimg.org/image/6h3f2480l/][img]https://s26.postimg.org/6h3f2480l/image.jpg[/img][/url]

Note how for some icons I created a transparent icon that I assigned to some desktop icons, to leave just a textual icon that can be positioned on the wallpaper background image to better blend in with the general theme.

No menu button, nor a showdesktop button as right mouse click of the clock brings up the menu and left mouse click activates showdesktop.[/quote]

Notice the img tags towards the bottom in that ... two of them!!! Two images as per the attached snapshot

Not difficult for even a person of modest computer experience to look for. Kindly look before leaping into your "claptrap" insults.

I thought this topic was about showing off your operating system... After all, that's what the topic title says, "Show us your puppies". Let me return to the main topic by showing off the same operating systems on my desktop computer.

Fatdog64 version 710


tahrpup64 version 6.0.5


I installed Ubuntu on the hard drive that Windows 8 was pre-installed to, however when I ran Windows 8 again it corrupted the bootloader for Ubuntu so I can't run Ubuntu because it says the operating system is not found when I try to do so. It created some extra partitions including a Swap file partition. Now the tahrpup64 system is detecting that as valid swap space.

I'll apologize... It has nothing to do with the hosts file or ghostery..My old
opera 12.16 -- which I normally use to access this forum -- cannot see
your thumbnails because they have an https address -- but I can see them
using Vivaldi 1.9..

I also cleaned up above your img URLs above: one only needs the
img]*.jpg[/img] part, the surrounding url]...[/url] is not needed.
(First bracket removed to let the code show.)

Sorry for the misunderstanding and the harsh words. Lesson learned.

BFN.

Here's a link to a couple of pages featuring computer interfaces in science fiction.

Quite inspiring!
