Puppy projects: Bright Ideas

I already announced the "Puppy Projects" web page yesterday:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02436

I received feedback with great ideas for some very ambitious projects, plus I thought of some myself, so I have added a "Bright Ideas" section to the web page, just scroll down:
http://puppylinux.com/development/projects.htm

So, in the future if anyone asks on the Forum how they can get involved on the developer side of things, point them to this page!

Psippy
Psip is a great project that languished for awhile, now lobster has revived it:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70867

The main thing about Psip in comparison to other similar projects, is that it is very small. That was the main reason that it was great for inclusion in Puppy.

I don't have it in recent Wary builds though, as it seemed to not be used by anyone.
But perhaps it is a situation where it really needs to be in all Puppy builds, so that it is something that all Puppy users can use right-off, and that will promote it's adoption (and general awareness of its existence).

Presentation tool
This requires a web browser, but since all puppies include a relatively standard modern browsers, I'd though I'd include this http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/
