Hello folks, just wanted to report i am very happy
with the LiveCD, the 1_1 version, but i have a couple

(1) The status bar (bottom bar of the pskmail program)
text, in my opinion, should update more often. The
various messages there (similar to "sending connect"
or "disconnect" or "ping" or whatever) should disappear
when the operation is complete. Instead, the text lingers
on long after the operation is complete, until it's replaced
by another string indicating a different operation.

(2) Last Friday i was sending 3 or 4 emails via the
ve7sun server, and my pskmail client kept on re-sending
all the emails over and over again, even tho i was getting
"mail sent" from the server. I had to stop the process by
aborting and disconnecting.  I verified that the recipients
had received two copies of everything.

Now, after i send email, i have to go to Konsole, and
go to the mail directory, and do 'vi message' to manually
delete the contents of the message file. Otherwise the
emails will be sent yet again if i punch the SEND button.

(3) Would it be possible to add a top-bar menu item
that specifically lets the client user save settings to a
jumpdrive (memory stick; flashdrive) or even a floppy?
At the moment i see no menu items to do this, and to
specify a path for saving, and another menu item to
retrieve the settings upon startup.

I am not going to be able to buy a 2-gig flashdrive to
boot up on, and that's the reason i want to be able to
save settings only (and retrieve them) on the little 256K
flashdrive i already have.

Any comments appreciated.
