Have a nice weekend!

No, it uses only 2% on puppy...


Could it be that it is using up all the resources on that PC? I know that on
my 220 machine if I try to run firefox, it will come up for a second or two,
then it is killed!

Anyway, I have uploaded the archive, it is called

It contains 3 .deb files and an icon, no charts. It will run without any
