Thanks for all the kind words, thoughts, and prayers. What I have is genetic and currently no treatment available.
I don't let it get me down. I will continue as I can. It just means it will be less than before.
I am looking at other foundations for the next base. Instead of hacking Knoppix or some other distro, I am looking to build up or even script build up. There are several foundations available.
DSL v3.x will no longer have maintenance releases. I cannot continue to increase my workload. As it is, v3.x is maxed out at 50MB.
As I wrote v4.x will continue but on a much slower schedule. I currently have one staged for release.
The SQL thing is not just for searching. It is to also consolidate the web html tables. The html tables will be a by product of having an sqlite database of extensions. Currently the html tables are built via an ugly awk program that I wrote and wish I hadn't.
So bottom line, I am looking into a new base for DSL.
