Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Remove Puppy

 

Saw this and thought I'd share, since I didn't know about it. I don't know if Puppy is that smart. All I ever did was remove the Puppy directory from C:\, then run repair from WinXP install CD, run fixmbr, then fixboot. However, I never ran it from a Dell WinXP CD. There's also a Grub or SuperGrub CD, also Ultimate Boot CD that might offer repairs. I know the Puppy Forum can be daunting...

Subject: [LINUX_Newbies] Remove Puppy

 
I have an older Dell with XP and Puppy Frugal with the Grub4DOS bootloader.

I plan to remove Puppy but don't know how to eliminate the bootloader so that XP will boot up properly.

Please post step-by-step instructions to fix the Windows MBR after I delete Puppy.

I'll have a Merry Christmas, personally I'm atheist but its a couple of
days off work so I'll enjoy it (even though I'm on-call).

I am very sorry for your loss. Don't beat yourself up over it though.
Similar situation here, but not Leukemia. With cancer treatments, the
immune system is often really, really low as the treatments often target
cells that reproduce quickly, which unfortunately reduces the number of
white cells. The patient is often very vulnerable to infection. So,
phone/email was probably the preferred means of contact. I'm trying to
avoid going into personal experiences here, but I didn't want anyone
visiting the house. Heck, I still double-wash my hands.

After reading your post and thinking quite deeply as the situation is
somewhat similar here. Don't dwell on what time you have spent with
people, dwelling itself is unproductive, Iron Maiden wrote a song about
that[1].

More importantly though, Johnny Cash[2] and others[3,4,5] covered Cats
in The Cradle. With good reason too I suspect for it tells the story of
a father who neglects his Son (and possibly his father too), only when
too late did he realise that he should have been there for his
Son/family. My words defy me, listen to the music :).

You gotta work hard, you have to keep money in the bank, especially in
computing, the industry is continually changing and its tough to keep
up. So when shit like systemd comes along, excuse me for not taking an
interest when init/upstart was just fine :).

When I thought that I didn't have any real life I got a camera. It was a
great way to force myself away from the computer. It worked, I now have
an interest in nature and a small flock of chickens. Not telling you
what to do, but why not make it an ambition to put a photo on flickr
everyday from somewhere different? It's a great way to spend time with
people and not the computer.

It doesn't matter too much what you make of life, if you have a family,
be there for them, if you don't have strings attached then enjoy the
freedom while you still have it.

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Happy Holidays!

 

Thanks. That is too true. Most of us only find this out too late, once we have lost someone. The other side of the holidays is that it is the saddest time for many peopleIt is easy to get caught up in other things, but need to remember it isn't about us or or jobs or material things. It is about relationships and holding onto what is important. So take the time to appreciate what you have and think about those who are less well off. Thanks for the reminderHappiness is a choice and not something abstract to be sought.

Hey,

Sorry for the crosspost, first of all, and sorry for not being as
active in either of these groups as I have in the past. Life, work,
work travel and trying to find a life outside of work take their
toll.

But I wanted to take a moment and wish all of you a (Happy, Merry,
Wonderful, Joyful) $HOLIDAY.

Air your grievances around the pole, Sing around the tree, light the
Menorah, or whatever it is you choose to do during the holiday season.

Most importantly, enjoy as much time as you can with Family and
Friends while you have the chance.

Two days ago one of my friends and co-workers died after Leukemia
finally won the long battle. I hadn't seen him in almost a year and
had been too busy with work to really actively try to catch up with
him, and now I'll never have the chance.

So please, enjoy time spent with your loved ones. That's the most
important thing of all.

Cheers,

Jeff Lane

You probably have to update it--didn't the warning say it was outdated?
And also, underneath, there might be an option to activate it anyway, but
you should update it.
