Your have a very good memory Ed!

Here in Montreal (Quebec), there are very few weddings compared to the rest of north America. This decrease in terms of marital unions came in around the 60s. At which time we went thru what has been called the tranquil or quiet revolution. Religion representatives, which were enforcing state law and conservative values and order, were thrown into the basket. Since then, most of us live in sin. So girlfriend=wife=spouse (in french canadian, ma blonde=ma femme=ma conjointe).

I'm surprised ma partenaire isn't in there.

I should have also included ma partenaire. We are proud to say that we have the most liberated women around the world here in quebec. They are for sure not dominated. Thus you better have them as partners. :wink:

We should get ready to receive newcomers. It is the opportunity to increase the membership.

The interest for porteus this week is at its top. We are at the 18th rank this week according to distrowatch:

Mentions and a small review on softopedia, but no major review yet:

Waiting for the extazy of the reviews on porteus 3.1 and being impatient, here is a small, to the point, and elogious review that went out of our attention last spring. It is underlining some strong features of porteus 3.0 :

The comments by a porteus supporter is enlightning. We should carefully follow reviewers so to help them understand our unusual linux distribution. :twisted:

Is it just me, or does that guy have a kind of boring way of doing and telling the stuff? I almost fell asleep listening to him...

Are the others better? Are there some for the final version that I can use as source for our wikipedia entry?

What is the easiest way in creating one? It is years ago since last I made desktop videos, I even forgot what program i used. And I never could make a microphone working. Would it work when I use a notebook? Since that has a webcam, it should also have a build in microphone.
Is it possible to record the native desktop while recording the stuff by using a notebook microphone?

Is there a way to see when Porteus got the best rank on distrowatch.com?

Currently it's down to "49 (290 hits per day)"

Me thinks adding our best distrowatch rank is worth a sentence or two on the wikipedia article, also we need some good review for 3.1, also to be added as reference on the article, there are no new reviews on there!

(But as you might know, editing wikipedia articles is tricky, you have to know the rules and not screw up or all the changes get revert!)

But why is it rank 49 when it was 18th rank prior?

Is one, like, 6 months term, and the other a shorter term,?

(Would make sense to go up after new final release)

After looking at DiwtroWatch entry on Port, I found this:
Download Mirrors http://build.porteus.org/
Shouldn't there be dl.porteus.org/ on it as well, especially since the builder is not really just a Download Mirror There is no "mirror" in creating a unique and new iso...
