Latest Addition

Thunderbird 12

Posted on 27-Nov-2014

Thunderbird 1.5 and 2 ‘Dewbie’ has been busy again modifying Thunderbird 12 and making improvements by adding ‘technosaurus' nobus (dbus / dbus-glib substitute) which is built in so it is no longer needed as separate dependency so Thunderbird launches on its own. Many thanks ‘Debwie’

Posted on 24-Nov-2014

Thunderbird 1.5 and 2 Thunderbird v1.5 and v2 are two earlier versions of Thunderbird before the bloat started to appear in the later versions. These versions are as usable as the latest version for your email and news.

Many Thanks to 'Dewbie' for supplying these two versions of Thunderbird email client and pointing out my packaging of v2.0.0.24 which had some errors and which are now removed.

Website Update

Posted on 03-Aug-2014

I said previously that "I will no longer be maintaining 412 Collection" but I have have had a change of heart and will continue with the 412 Collection. I have changed a few things, firstly I have changed the guestbook to a more up to date comment system (link at the top of each page) that visitors may find a better option, especially if visitors would like to ask questions.

Lastly I have included a link to the improved Puppy Linux Search Engine in the right hand column that I have set up after the demise of wellminded.com.

With the www.wellminded.com website being down for some time now with no sign of it reappearing although the Google Custom Search still exists.
