Any Suggestions for the EDM/2 Wiki ?
« on: December 02, 2020, 05:13:42 pm »
Hi

Over the last years I had been trying to get all OS/2-ArcaOS-eCS software development material, like docs and tutorials, on the EDM/2 wiki. My idea was to get permission to re-post as much as OS/2 development articles and material as possible, and if I can not get permission at least link it.

The ever going effort is on the "The OS/2 API Project", which requires more work to complete the API documentation for the different components.

- If you know any more OS/2 development related article that is not on the site, and it is not even linked please let me know.
- If you want to create a new article, tutorial, book review, tool review or want to improve something on the wiki, let me know.
Any more suggestions for the EDM/2 wiki are welcome.

Regards

Martin - I'm amazed by all the work you've done on the Wikis in general (like the hardware database etc). Where do you find the time? Thanks for that.

Actually that is a funny thing. With a wiki you can go little by little on a page/article and use little chunks time, that combined can turn into a big thing. It is not that I took long hours of my time in one shot, it took little chunks of my free time that combined into a bigger thing.

And some incomplete articles on the OS2World wiki are like my journal. When I try a new or old OS/2 software, I took some seconds to take a screen shot and create a very quick article about it on the wiki.

I like the Wiki for its hardware and software suggestions.

An enhancement for the Wiki would be for laptops and desktops that are listed to support OS/2, eComStation or ArcaOS that they should run a program to scan the useful things about the computer and generate the technical parts of a Wiki page. This would improve reports and make this a better resource for someone to select a new computer.

This is a perfect computer for ArcaOS.

Does sound or USB work?

We should probably help. Speaking of which I wasn't clear how to sign up to contribute, without just posting here since if I can do it direct that would be best.
