Screenshot Staff Established, New Reviews Application
Posted by Nick on 5 August 2000, 06:05 GMT

We've had this in the making for several months now, and we're very pleased to (FINALLY!) get it out to the public. As of this posting, ticalc.org is announcing the establishment of a team of people (headed by myself and Andy) for screenshotting the files in our archives. We're establishing a staff that will bask in the warm glow of fringe benefits: a @ss.ticalc.org (forwarding) email address, and constant communication with the ticalc.org staff on in-house matters. You'll be subscribed to a mailing list for screenshot staff members where we talk about various administrative aspects of the site. Fun stuff abounds! Your responsibility, as a staff member, will be to screenshot as many files as possible. We keep track of who does what, so you'd better work! :) We have an application available for download. After you're done filling it out, email it to ss@ticalc.org. We'll start to accept the first members about two weeks from now. We hope to see you as a part of our team very soon!

Also, Eric the Hamster informed me that a new review staff application, which coincidentally looks a great deal like the screenshot staff application, is up in the Reviews section.

However many there needs to be. I'd say about ten, right now, but that number could fluctuate as the need waxes and wanes. Ten people doing 15-20 screenshots each, every day, for about 10-15 programs... that adds up. That's (worst-case) 100 programs a day, which is still really good.

AIM (Aol Instant Messanger), ICQ, IRC (Internet Relay Chat) and all chat-related programs.

You can download AIM at aol.com (or with Real Player), ICQ from icq.com, I can't help ya with IRC because I don't use it.

For irc, BitchX cones with quite a few Unix-ish distributions, Red Hat 6.2 for example. If you're unfortunate enough to be stuck on WinDoze you could get mIRC from www.mIRC.co.uk, although people may not take you seriously ;).

HTH,

Funny how you complain about Windows yet mention the worst possible Linux distribution.

Of course, who doesn't like putting the red hat 6.2 installation disk into an old computer, and having it freeze because the installation program takes up so much ram :)

debian all the way ....

I've got debian, Red Hat, Corel and something else (wow, too many LILO images...) installed on my computer but the one I was using when I wrote that comment only has Red Hat. I couldn't remember whether it comes with the other distributions.

Anyway, everyone nkows that the best (I get killed for using that word at school) Linux distribution is LOAF -- it might just fit on a ti92...

Let the Holy Wars commence...

I know RedHat sucks (Slackware's the way to go for me), but, hey, it's the only one that was able to work with my laptop's neomagic video card (ouch!) without the need for me to recompile the x server. oh well, you give some, you take some.

Linux review (by Lincoln Spector):

<B>Linux</B>
Everyone's favourite come from behind operating system was originally developed by a college student in Helsinki. By comparison, most OSes are developed by programmers in hell.
The student, Linus Torvalds, named this Unix variant after himself and made it available for free to anyone who could figure out what to do with it and how to sell it.
Today, Linux is known for carrying an unusually high price for a free product. True to its Unix origins, there are multiple, incompatible versions of Linux.

AIM: Stands for AOL Instant Messenger. It's a chat program, pretty much for one-on-one chat. Very simple, you just put people's screennames on your buddy list to see them and when they're on, you talk to them.

ICQ: Doesn't stand for anything, but if you say it out loud it sounds like I seek you. I don't know very much about this, since I've never used it, but I think it's also more one-on-one chat.

IRC: Stands for Internet Relay Chat, and in my opinion, is the best of the bunch. Ever seen Nick or other people here do something like "/me message"? That's an IRC command, and there are lots more like it. IRC can get very complicated at times, with ops, bots, and channels, and sometimes people seem to forget that it's just a damn chat program.

ICQ does stand for something! I Seek You. Of course, that doesn't matter to me, because I don't use ICQ!

it's just that...being disconnect for no reason after 40 minutes is not good service!

My free ISP isn't that bad.

That's why I don't dial into AOL. Of course, I'll have to if Freewwweb stops working. (Which will, someday, because they just went out of business.)

Try http://www.1nol.com -- pretty much the same thing, no ads, free, lots of good stuff, and they don't pack a huge Netscape browser into their 1337 client download.

No, I want an ISP that DUN-compatible, so I can use it on anything (like Linux, for example).
