Old OS/2 publicity

eComStationNews.com - Fri, 20140926 - 09:23 -0600

I'm currently in the process of cleaning out some old files. Rather than toss I'm scanning some of the OS/2 promotional material and uploading it to Google sites. The URL for the site is:
https://sites.google.com/site/docsxx14/

There are currently only a few items, though I'll be adding more from time to time. The "Contents" page has a short description of each item. Some PL/I for OS/2 documents are filed under "PL/I documents" and non-PL/I OS/2 material under "OS/2 documents".

Weasel mail server is now freeware

eComStationNews.com - Wed, 20140917 - 04:24 -0600

The Weasel mail server, which was formerly shareware, is now re-released
as open-source freeware, governed by the GNU GPL licence. There is no
longer any distinction between registered and unregistered versions. You
can get version 2.0 from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/Weasel.html
or
ftp://pmoylan.org/Weasel/

Source code and the IMAP extension are also available in that FTP directory.

Weasel is a mail server that can be configured as either a single-domain
server or a multidomain server. For more details, the manual is on-line
on the above web site. The Weasel program is a mature application, with
full support for the POP3 and SMTP protocols. The IMAP extension still
has some limitations.

Warpstock 2014 presentation announcment: Lars Erdmann

eComStationNews.com - Mon, 20140915 - 12:40 -0600

My apologies to any that already received this but apparently many did not and I don't know who did or did not.

Warpstock is pleased to announce a presentation by Lars Erdmann, who will discuss his work regarding the USB stack and his plans for updating the USB Mass Storage Device Driver. In addition, Lars makes the following offer:

Anyone having one or more USB storage devices that is/are incompatible with the current USB drivers should bring the device(s) to Warpstock to give (donate) to Lars, as he cannot buy every single storage device which does not work with USBMSD.ADD. He will then take it/them back to Germany for his use in testing and reworking USBMSD.ADD (please no other devices besides storage devices).

As multi-LUN support also needs to be added, these devices (USB attached card readers; devices which appear as "fake" CD-ROMs to allow autostart under Windows, etc.) are also of interest.

Warpstock is the annual conference for eComStation and OS/2 users. Warpstock 2014 will be held at the Drury Inn St. Louis Airport, in St. Louis, Missouri October 24 - 26, 2014. Warpstock 2014 promises to be a can't-miss event, as new developments in the community will be discussed, and practical tips and techniques for getting the most out of existing systems and new hardware will be on the agenda.
