Mail-News / Is PMMail still being maintained?
« on: January 11, 2018, 07:27:14 am »
Is PMMail still be developed?  If so, can someone tell me what size bitmaps are built into the mailer?  I may take a stab at updating the bitmaps if I can find time.  No promises, but if it is still being maintained, it would be worth while to try to update the graphics.


Applications / Is REXX in all its versions still heavily used.

I found this web page mentioning Object Rexx, NetRexx, and others.  Their various downloads, are they platform specific?  I never hear them mentioned like they were in years past.

Applications / Mouse Pointers
« on: January 09, 2018, 07:51:11 am »
I make this set of mouse pointers a few years ago.  I revised and made them bigger since I am using a small notebook.  I think some people will like this set.  It is different.  It has now become my standard mouse pointer.

I would have liked to have made them even bigger.  However, ArcaOS limits the size to 32x32.  I tried 40x40 and it doesn't work correctly at 40x40.  It reverts to 32x32.


Applications / Desktop Backgrounds

I know ArcaOS can use BMPs, JPGs, and PNGs as backgrounds.  I would like to convert my bmps to PNGs.  I don't like JPGs because the file size is much bigger.  Is there anything I need to be concerned with?  I have used PNGs and have not encountered any problems.


Applications / New Styler titlebar bitmaps
« on: January 08, 2018, 08:09:28 am »
I created these a few years ago for eStyler.  However, I don't recall ever putting all them together.  So I packaged them and uploaded.  Just copy to you sys\apps\styler\bitmaps\tnkgronds directory.  Discard the ones you don't like or think you will never use.


Is it possible to back up and restore a desktop to a new version of ArcaOS?  When I buy the next greatest, latest, and best version of ArcaOS, wiill it be possible to back up and restore my previous version desktop to the new version?


Applications / Dynamic Icons
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:15:16 pm »
This is a great feature that ArcaOS has implemented.  I checked and it was not in eCS.  Not only can one download and use PNGs off the internet or make your own, one can go to the "Display" setting in each folder's properties, select "Dynamic Icons", and then select the size that he or she wants.  Although it works with OS/2 icons, the real benefit comes when one uses PNGs.  ArcaOS comes with a directory called BigIcons that one can select PNGs from.  They are sized in 64x64, which is a nice size.


Applications / Dr. Dialog
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:11:30 am »
I don't know if this is still used.  I created some updated bitmaps for it a few years back, but never posted them.  If not Dr. Dialog, they might be useful in another program.


Applications / Toying with the folder concept
« on: December 27, 2017, 03:50:01 am »
I had an idea and thought I would see what it looked like.  Instead of a big folder, a small folder icon like the XWP shadow icon is used.  Then an actual icon of the product or information concept icon is used.  I had to modify the icons I used.

The easiest way would be to have a folder icon that appears when a folder is present, just like a XWP shadow.  I am not asking that this be done.  This is just an ideal I am testing.  I have attached a picture of my desktop.

Applications / Software Reports

Using ArcaOS 5.01

Installing eSchemes makes the whole system unstable.

Installing Animated mouse pointer 1.01 locks the system up. 

Both resulted in me installing ArcaOS 5.01 again.
