When a Puppy Project Multiples

Hello Smile

Puppy OSes are amazing, ingenious operating systems, delightful to use (most of the time).
I have a zeal to promote Puppy systems to whomever will pay attention to me.
Apparently I've done a pretty good job with my Puppy hobby in my small community.
Old laptops are donated to me, I scrape off the Microsoft OS and replace with a Puppy to fit the machine.
I then give the machines to low-income people, tech-averse seniors and friends.

This is one reason why you see so many posts from me on the forum that ask about so many different machines and configurations.

Well, I think I'm taking a break from the hobby this year.
I've manage to seed the area with over a dozen Puppy machines.

Now what is happening is that I am becoming a Puppy Help Desk locally.
I hadn't foreseen the extent of this! duh!

Our cold, dark winters here provide the perfect environment for my Puppy Project of setting up the machines.
However, come the short but beautiful warm Spring and Summer seasons and I am outta here and down to the shore to sail my 10' sailing dink.
The 'help desk' calls come in regardless of the season.
Spending time answering Puppy questions when the sun is out and the wind blows a perfect 7knots is when I chafe at the help desk part of the Puppy hobby.

So, I'm cooling my jets for a while.

Anybody else doing a similar project? How's it working for you?

Heart warming story Sky!
Thank you.

Real men talk about the length of their ..hmm .. yachts.
Possessing a 10 foot dink is closer to poetry and wisdom than all 'real men's' lenghts combined.

Thanks for sharing,
from a european scaling down salt water junkie.

Maybe should name my next dink "Puppy" Laughing

Good name for your next boat, 'Puppy'.
I like 'Poetry and Wisdom', mind if I use it on my next dink?
Very Happy

That's a lovely boat...

Looks like a replica of a classsic lapstrake dinghy?
No wonder you want to escape from the "help desk" Smile

Once I saw a sailing yacht in Britanny, France, with a funny name:

"Il est en réunion" ( "He's in a meeting right now") Laughing

Bon vent!

Yes, it's a QuarterMaster-10, glass.
My dinks are like my Puppy Project. People give me or I find 'project' boats then I clean them up with free paint from the Recycling of hazardous wastes, make a sail out of Tyvek and share them with the community.

That's funny.
I've named some of my dinks...

Yard Sale (A 21footer found at a yard sale, I think UKer's say a 'boot' sale)
Her Majesty's Dinghy (A commissioned 10' dink! called a 'SeaHopper', foldable, plywood, made in UK near Falmouth)
Cabaret (a racy Flying Dutchman Junior, painted red, 13')
