I'll let you know when it's done. Still another 4 - 5 hours.
I'll also prepare the Service Pack for 430 today.

I'm playing with 4.3.1-release-candidate. The PPM is working nicely, really beautiful to use.
I tested installing Sylpheed 2.7.1. Have to get it from ibiblio as hasn't got through to the mirrors yet.
I wanted to see how nicely it handles the 'bogofilter' dependency -- yes, very nicely.
Still uploading. I'm running 431rc on another PC, has a wireless network card and I used ndiswrapper.

The files are still uploading, md5sums.txt is not there yet. Anyway:
...so the main live-cd file is available for download.
Note, when the files have uploaded, I'll be changing the name of the directory from puppy-4.3.1-UPLOADING to puppy-4.3.1-RELEASE-CANDIDATE, so that may break a download.
Not much longer to go anyway. I'll make an announcement.

This blog does not have a facility to reset passwords. I would have to login to my website, find the file, download it, delete your entry then upload it.

Been using the 4.3.1 beta for about an hour (not yet officially available - but the download went OK - would advise waiting for directory name change)- Forgot to mention in the forum that my Open Office icons appeared on the desktop - welcome back :)
Also the boot appears to be faster? No idea how this is possible (maybe psychological because there are fewer command appearing during the booting)
Hope your back is better Barry :)
