Warpstock Europe 2015 update and audio stream...

Sat, 20150516 - 17:29 -0600

Anyway the website for Warpstock Europe is coming together. About 2 months ago I had 2 people who could help out with Warpstock Europe but they could no commit really. But that was not because they did not want to... They where extremely busy. So I organized the event myself.

* The current archive pages will stay up on typo3. But next year we will have a new website running on Wordpress or Joomla.
That way the pages will be up quicker! It took a lot of work to update Typo3.

* Tomorrow May 18th I will update the pages with most of the presenters and presentations.
For people who can not make it to Warpstock Europe 2015. An MP3 audio stream will be offered. The program of which presentations will be streamed
will be published next week. For details please visit: www.warpstock.eu/en/agenda/live_audio_stream.html

* Over the last couple of years it was possible to buy a ticket at the event. This is no longer possible as a volunteer had to sit behind a table waiting for people. Also the VOICE foundation (www.os2voice.org) does not have any cash money. Also I need to indicate to the hostel in advanced how many people are coming so they can provide enough coffee and tea! Hence the reason you need to reserve your access in advanced!

* Also note that lunch _cannot_ be purchased at the hostel. I was clearly told by the booking office of A&O hostels
this is not possible!

So you need to buy your access in advanced via:
https://www.arcanoae.com/shop/warpstock-europe-2015-access/

The reason Arca Noae deals with the bookings is because they sponsor VOICE partly to organize Warpstock Europe 2015.

* The following speakers will make a presentation(s) at WarpStock Europe 2015:

David Azarewicz, participant in Arca Noae LLC
Roderick Klein, chairman of the VOICE International
Steve Levine, independant OS/2 developer (remote via Skype)
Keith Merrington, OS/2 developer
Lewis Rosenthal, participant in Arca Noae LLC
Gregg Young, independant OS/2 developer

Program and topics of the presentations will be added to the website tonight and tomorow.

Hope to see you at Warpstock Europe 2015 in Munich on the 6 and 7th of June. For more information please visit www.warpstock.eu.

Regards,

Roderick Klein
President OS/2 VOICE

Major Major is now open source

Mon, 20150504 - 23:09 -0600

The latest version of Major Major can be fetched from
pmoylan.org/pages/os2/Major.html
or from
ftp://pmoylan.org/Major/major2.0.zip
or from Hobbes. This software is now open source.

Major Major is a mailing list processor for OS/2. You can use it to
create multiple mailing lists, to which people can subscribe. You must,
however, have the ability to create an e-mail account for each list.
This means that either your ISP must give you multiple accounts, or that
you run your own mail server.

WebServe version 1.1

Wed, 20150429 - 04:20 -0600

My new web server should now be up to production quality. You can get
the new version -- the sources are in the zip file -- from

ftp://pmoylan.org/software/webserve1.1.zip

It's now happily running on my own web site, the only glitch being that
googlebot is being abnormally persistent trying to fetch a file that
doesn't exist. (But that's their problem, not mine.) I plan to upload it
to Hobbes soon.

Can anyone suggest a more elegant name? All the good names seem to be
taken. I can't design an icon until I get a name.

Here's the change log:

LIST OF CHANGES

Version 1.1 (29 Apr 2015)
Fixed: number of clients wasn't being displayed.
Fixed: some source files weren't being added to the distribution.
Allowed for alternative hostnames for a domain.
Increased default max simultaneous clients to 100.
Added a timeout to deal with lazy bots.
File buffer size increased to 65536.
Improved transaction logging.
Added common log option.
Improvements to Setup program.

Version 1.0 (25 Apr 2015)
Initial release.

DFSee version 12.4 released today!

Fri, 20150403 - 09:04 -0600

DFSee version 12.4 has been released, with some significant updates.

It is a MINOR release, with several small fixes and enhancements,
and many improvements in file recovery.

For recovered files, the original date and time information is now retained
for almost any filesystem and operating system. For HPFS and FAT32 it now
also preserves the long-filename much better.

 

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE
and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.


More details at:
www.dfsee.com/dfsee/

Direct download links from the DFSee website:

Functional changes since 12.3

- EXFAT file recovery: set original file date/time from FILE dir entry
- EXFAT file recovery: fix directory interpretation bug causing failure
- EXPAND do NOT allow manual override of maximum size in dialog (clip)

- EXPAND Max accepted size automatically reduced for cylinder alignment
- FAT(32) file recovery: set original file date/time, incl create/access
- FAT(32) file recovery: use long-filename for recovered file, if present
- FDISK/startup: 0-disks/admin-hint in popup requiring user confirmation
- FILEFIND/DELFIND -D option to search for DIRECTORIES only (when possible)
- GEO Update total nr of sectors and cylinders on byte-per-sector change
- HELP (commandline) added the MENU2HTML command to '??' command overview
- HPFS DELFIND/FILEFIND Create proper FNODE find-SPACE for fast searching
- HPFS Fnode display and 'list -f': show FULL long-filename and path
- HPFS file recovery: set original file date/time, when still available
- HPFS file recovery: use FULL long filename (>15) when still available
- HPFS file recovery: use FULL long name (>15) on all path components too
- HPFS: Fixed hang with long-filename display on deleted files/directories
- ID '-v-' non-verbose, suppress contents display for the sector
- IMAGE/RESTORE correctly set default size when a start offset specified
- LIST '-d-' suppress contents display for the '-c' cmd execution option
- LIST '-t-' or '-t' TEST option is passed on to cmd given with '-c'

Free golf course file for Links for OS/2

Sat, 20150328 - 05:42 -0600

An additional, free CRH golf course file for Links for OS/2:

 

home.uni-one.nl/m1/games/bountifu.crh

 

It's a small, 625 KiB test file, so users of other versions of Links can verify that this course file format and all other additional course files are compatible with their version of Links.

 

It will work fine with Links/2. Just save the file BOUNTIFU.CRH in your Links/2 directory, start a new game and select the course Bountiful Golf Club.
