Sorry, soppy, I think your post#2 does a terrible disservice to OP & the question. If you've kept your profile up to date, you're a Slacker & likely know nothing about MEPIS, its methods, & its goals. By jumping in w/ an ignorant, & therefore unhelpful, reply you knocked this thread off the 0-reply list prematurely.

The 6th ArchToad's Laws of Scripting

Posted 11-05-2009 at 10:25 AM by archtoad6

Preface
"Clarity, Brevity, Generality"
Paterned after the "Liberté, égalité, fraternité" of the French Revolution, these are the watch words with which I introduced a presentation on programming I gave to HLUG (H=Houston) about 4 years ago. I quote them here, 1st because they are appropriate, & 2nd because I want my copyright & other intellectual property claim on the public record.

I have strong opinions on programming, especially scripting...

Clonezilla Live

Posted 06-12-2009 at 03:29 PM by archtoad6

I lead the Samba & Network Administration SIG (Special Interest Group) at HAL-PC (www.hal-pc.org) here in Houston. For the last few sessions we have been in a "Disaster Recovery Arc" -- trying out various Free Software/Open Source bare metal back-up & restore software. Last Saturday, June 6, 2009, one of our members gave an excellent presentation on Clonezilla Live.

HAL-PC Elections for the Board of Directors

Posted 04-30-2009 at 03:33 PM by archtoad6
Updated 09-14-2009 at 07:31 AM by archtoad6 (Elections are over)

Every Spring HAL-PC elects roughly one half of the Board of Directors, I am running for re-election. I am in the midst of writing my candidate's statement, which is due today. I realized that I may have more to say during the campaign "season", so I am reserving this spot for additional information.
