    Talking Build Your Own Geeko

    My computer always used to beat me at chess, but it is no match for me since I changed the competition to kick boxing

    Too much fun indeed !!

    ... and one can even make Freudian deductions from the greko's posted. In my case, there is vacation and fun very much on my mind , with a back drop of h-itech behind .....

    i guess the geeko builder is not tied into the Novell log in gizmo, huh?

    so, one sign in does not actually work everywhere..

    Seems so. I was surprised when my Novell creditials failed. "Works at
    most sites, but you won't know which ones until you try" isn't really
    that useful.

    There's a new version of the geeko builder available with more options.

    does it still require a separate sign in?

    let me answer my own question:

    YES, you still must have an *additional* Novell/openSUSE account and
    password to get into this Novell site..

    and, another question or three (and answer):


    Q 1: Is it true that the User Name and Password blanks MUST be
    manually typed in letter by letter (in Firefox 3.0.1 running in KDE3
    on openSUSE 10.3) because the blanks will NOT accept a paste in?

    A. Unbelievably, YES....the user is forced to manually type in the data.


    Q 2: Is there a notice that no matter how much time you take designing
    the 'perfect' Geeko you will NOT be able to download it until you 1)
    open another account with Novell AND 2) manually type in that user
    name and password..

    A. No, you learn that until AFTER you have done the design..


    Q 3: Is this the level of Novell user friendliness we expect?

    A. I guess we have to accept it, huh?


    Q 4: If you do sign in, and come back later will you be 'remembered'
    (via a cookie) or will you be forced to manually enter your password
    again, and again, and again?

    A. [Can't answer that one as I can't sign in with my Novell password
    and can NOT understand why this site won't accept it.]

    HELLO! is anyone at Novell listening, or just transmitting!! Did you
    learn that way to treat users from your partner, M$ ?

    amazing!

    if you wonder if i can get more abrasive, the answer is yes.
