4.3beta3 is uploading
Hi Barry if you ever have a need for a large amount of uploads to be uploaded, you could always mail me the cd/dvd and I could do it for you, I have basically a 80GB adsl 2+ (40GB/40GB) monthly usage. Just an idea if that would help.

Thanks for the offer. It is quite painful watching this upload. Then the main iso got to 100MB uploaded, just a bit more to go -- then stopped, just refused to send any more. gFTP still seemed to have a connection with ibiblio. Very odd, I didn't understand it, so exited gFTP then reconnected and it resumed the transfer.
I will do a ssh login later to check the md5sum of that file!

Just downloaded beta 3
Does that look right? It boots and runs so I guess it is.

Hi Barry, With my ibiblio account, I wanted a way to use it with filezilla, It wouldn't work with a regular filezilla build on 4 series, so I made up this one that uses gnutils,wx, etc the whole 9 yards, that one can be used for ibiblio uploads :)
Its a couple version outdated, but works anyways thats what matter I guess.
The forum link for it is http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=293191&search_id=975644729#293191
Also With the next version of 2 series I'm going to dive into, just wondering if I could call it puppy 2.20? Probably the latest gtk,glib,older kernel and xorg, firefox 3.5 and flash 10.
If you don't want me to use the puppy name thats ok also, I'm not using 2.18 because it didn't have the zdrv_218.sfs, and used more resources and also didn't have the older xorg.

I should have added, the slow upload is not due to my satellite connection, it is throttled at ibiblio's end.

Yes, your md5sum is ok!
At the time of posting this, pup-425.iso and devx-425.sfs have uploaded, the rest still on the way.

I have no interest in doing anything more on the 2-series, so you are welcome to use any 2.x numbers you want.
