Pretty damn good! Apart from routine polishing, repo additions, etc. no reason why this one shouldn't last a very long time. Recommend sub-100 and sub-50 as worthwhile projects based upon this one for the troops who specialise in those aspects.

"Hi Barry I had an idea I figured I would pass on to you. When people buy cd's from you, if you made them cdrw's and charged say an extra $0.50 or so for a 12X cdrw on top of the regular price, wouldn't it be nice if the menu under system say had a app listed called [b]Update CDRW[/b], and once it was click a gui would say, "This will update your CDRW to the latest Wary, do you want to proceed yes or no" Then you click yes and it deletes your current image and downloads the latest from ibiblio and burns it to disk, but when it deletes the current it checks for different Save files and only removes puppy from the cdrw. Probably it would compare the version on disk compared to the latest release. basically the latest release on server should be name latest and have a .txt document where it could compare the version running and the version at the repo. if there is a difference then it would be deleted and overwritten. ttuuxxx

"Hmmmm, ttuuxxx, your "cd" comment was double-posted, so I deleted one, so a single post remains above, but then it has disappeared from the comments index.
