There's a new version of Slax (the liveCD based on Slackware, of course): ftp://ftp.slax.org/slax-5.0.0.iso That's not what's so interesting, though...they have introduced Slax web. You save your settings online instead ...

    Now this is just slick:


    There's a new version of Slax (the liveCD based on Slackware, of course): ftp://ftp.slax.org/slax-5.0.0.iso That's not what's so interesting, though...they have introduced Slax web. You save your settings online instead of on a floppy, usb stick, etc. You can "pull" your settings for any machine connected to the internet running Slax; I just think that's pretty nifty.

    Flatline, do you know if u can store docs that were originally on ur computer on the net as a temp measure?

    The reason i say this is, quite a lot of people ask me to fix their windows computers, often i just end up reinstalling then it runs faster aswell, so i boot a knoppix cd (atm) and copy any docs they need to a usb pen, could i copy them to the net if they not got a usb pen?

    sdousley There is a limit of 8MB per saved session. so unless your saving small text documents looks like youll have to keep that pen drive handy, although i have heard of a nifty program that turns a gmail account into a your own personal file server, it should be somewere on scource forge, maybe thats what your looking for?

    Wow, that online saving thing sounds pretty cool. It's good to know that Live-CD's are trying to allow some saving functions without touching the hard drive.
