oops so sorry, that is why I name myself nooby.
I fail to get tech and logic and structured things.
I am simply bad at thinking. Not much to trust at all
apart from my intent to be as friendly and nice as I can.

I even fail at that too often. So typically I must have
ticked the wrong box somewhere. I look into it.

Thank you Nooby and unSpawn for your considerate responses to the situation of www.murga-linux.com being down.
You've got class.

unSpawn do have class while I am a naive grumpy old man with too short temper.
But much appreciated that you shared. Hope we get the forum back and that it was
just a mechanical or natural disaster and not some attack from ill will people.

late at night here so I pull my switch now to the mains

I also found it surprising that anybody would do such posting. As I remember them
only teased and wrote nothing relating to the thread. So I found it surprising too.

Does not google have some kind of cache that can show that page again
if that person wrote something that can connect it to the shut down?

his user name was *|* which mimicked how the Avatar looked too.
I remember that lowtech once had A VERY BIG AVATAR, it took almost half of the page ... and you know lowtech keeps coming back and back.

It makes the forum very weak if it depends just on one not everlasting person.

it also all comes down to who is responsible and why,

it has certainly come up and regardless if it is ever resolved in puppyland, there is always accountability,

one person alone responsible for anything of huge significance, can have a medical issue, car accident etc, then what

y'all have what you asked for regardless of what may come next

good news, the more the better as far as i'm concerned, though having had experience with raffy in the past, i do not and will not support him,

along with a host of other known players including wherever you or your pals may go, mainly the ones that have already shown their colors, or where they are coming from

Re your latest catch. "archbang has new live release."

Maybe you could write about it in their place or the main Arch here on LQ?
I totally failed to boot them on NTFS but could boot Godane's Archiso version
but I don't know how much that one is different from archbang's latest.

So will look for your text in LQ on the main distro or the Arch section.
Which seems most proper. was it on USB or a ext3 partition or NTFS?
What menu.lst code and so on. Always interesting to learn from others experiences.

Sorry derail
Nooby, just burn the iso to cd and install from menu. haven't looked if can do frugal manual or what is it 01micko calls it a cheater or something.

installed grub to same partition archbang is, which is not on MBR. then went into puppy and grub4dos found the full install.

title Linux boot (sda3/boot)
uuid 1bbd2a95-62ce-408d-be72-9581e81c3066
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/sda3 ro

and refraining from these type posts, unless perhaps you can back it up and also in another thread,

folks here may also have zero interest in a topic you may bring up, my experience is the mods are on the ball and know how to deal with riff raff, or establishing what they are about,

taking care of basics like order, is not something foreign to them

you have not been part of this discussion other than trying to bait people. some sites would ban you for baiting and judging from your low post count bet you have been banned and now your back again.

if you don't like my post report me otherwise get lost. you are not a moderator.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the info on other forums. What usually happens is the Murga forum goes back on line. Other forums are neglected, ignored or not used - which means John must be doing something right . . .

At the same time much talk and offers of mirror happen but this never manages to materialise. Flash and the other main admins have considerable power over the Murga forum, mainly to get rid of spam.

We normally go down when a new Puppy is released, usually the server protects itself and John has to reset.

As John is traveling (last I heard from him) and may not always have Internet access (yes there are places like that). Something he mentioned that should not be made public.
The reason it was not made public is precisely because he was not in a position to maintain the forum at owner status. I am sure he had better things to do then hand over temp ownership to cover this eventuality . . .

There have also been sock puppets and deliberate swamping with new user type attacks on the Murga forum.

The Murga forum has been fast and functional after John moved to a bigger, more expensive server plan, several months ago.

I have no contact details for Flash (who has the highest admin status) or other moderators, so not sure what is happening from their perspective.

Anyway that is the present situation as much as I know it.

Have just posted a alpha release of a tiny flat file database
at http://puppylinux.info/ under the developers section

Clicking on chat in Puppy should take you to IRC and any of the latest news.

Thanks guys - I will do a pawed cast soon but this situation might well be over by then

Now might be that time away from the computer you always promised yourself. Just a thought.
