website issues (spelling mistakes, broken links)
« on: September 23, 2018, 06:49:15 AM »
As far as I can see this is the best place to report issues with the website of Tiny Core Linux.
I noticed some minor typing mistakes and some broken links.
At first I mention the website where I found the issued. For typing mistakes the first line prints the current spelling. After a separator my suggestion follows. At the separator line you might see comments. I am not a native speaker, maybe I am wrong.
Broken links are listed by text, current target and my suggestion.
Thank you for fixing the issues.

Thanks for reporting. I'm quite short on free time nowadays, so may be a bit before I get to these.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi sobek

I checked out every issue you listed and you are correct on virtually every one.

The web page got this one right,  a username  is the correct usage.

isos

ISOs
In addition to that example, the singular  iso  also shows up may times on that page in different contexts. When referring to
the file format it should be  ISO.  When referring to the boot code it should be  iso.

misconfigured webserver?
A page that is currently unmaintained, probably due to time constraints.
