      I think I started with MX-14 a few years back. Almost entirely on Panasonic Toughbooks. Early days were spent figuring out touchscreen calibration. Mint 8 was my first Linux distro.

      MX-16 was my favorite but antiX-17 although different is very nice. Learning curve and a lot more terminal commands but as I started with DOS on a Commodore 64 I ain’t scared.

      Presently working on a Panasonic 3E…..a strange little two piece tablet. I have some questions but will post in a more appropriate place.

      Thanks for a good product and for this forum. Nice folks here.

          Peek?
          Poke?

          I’m having new guy navigation issues…..ummm I wrote a thing, posted it and did a quick edit for a typo. Haven’t seen it since.

          Thanks for the welcome.

            We all have been learning to walk through this forum change. Just be patient and non judgmental. I just roll with flow here. I run AntiX on a old CF-48 I keep repairing.

              Oh, it’s my fault I am sure.

              So what is peek? and poke?

                peek: read the the value of a given memory address
                poke: write a value to a specified memory address

                I guess your keyboard doesn’t have dedicated commandmode keys for those operations, like my Timex-Sinclair ZX81 does.

                    As a new user, am I limited in my posts?

                    I wrote up another thing about Panasonic 3E. When I attempted to post to HARDWARE, it generated a error code.
                    Again I suspect it is something I am doing wrong but haven't figured out what.

                    Not complaining, just curious. 🙂

                      Make it in leafpad or whatever.
                      Zip it up and load it up here. Somebody may take a look.

                        Good point. Something that size shouldn’t be typed on a postage stamp size laptop.

                        I stumbled across a PATA/IDE hard drive in my bin. SSD. Got carried away and installed antiX 17 on it. Luckily I found a super grub dvd to launch it, did boot repair from CC and now it’s working fine. Oh, this was on a Panasonic CF-M34.

                        One of my “lost” 3E posts showed up. (under Heather Heyer)

                          I have not found that “limits” are enforced for posts new users.
                          The forum software includes a strong anti-spam component. We’re all subject to to having posts blocked based on certain trigger words (I haven’t read the anti-spam ruleset) and today I stumbled into being blocked because my intended post contained onload() (used italics tags to breakup the letter here, so that I could post it).

                          FYI, I recommend firefox 52-esr, and consider Textarea Cache extension to be an ESSENTIAL addon.
                          If you type something and submit a form… and the site “eats” it (you press the Back button after an “error” and find the posting box is now empty)
                          Textarea Cache will save yer bacon.

                          In the future, if you encounter a rejected posting attempt, consider pasting the post content to pastebin.com and include that pastebin.com link in your post. We can then try to figure out what within it triggered anti-spam rejection. (We really, really, REALLY ought to work on creating a list which documents these gothcas.)

                            test

                            this is pseudocode, embedded in a "code" box
                            can I write onloa d() here?

                              No, I could not post it, not even as “Moderator”, not even within a “codebox”.
                              WTF?
                              That limitation is ridiculous.

                                Sometimes the “artificial intelligence” parts of programming does the stupidest things.

                                  I thought it was the hot link.

                                  Thanks.
