OS/2 History Newsletters
« on: April 29, 2024, 06:09:42 pm »
Hello

I had been doing some light reorganization on the HobbesArchive on the OS/2 Newsletters:
- http://hobbesarchive.com/?path=%2fpub%2fos2%2finfo%2fnewsltr
And it is taking me some time, because some times I get hooked reading those.

Just in case someone wants to help, If you see some newsletter missing on Hobbes, let me know to also include it there.

Regards

Here it is one:
- IBM OS/2 Newsletter (1994-08-16)

I was only able to find "Volume 1, Issue 2 and 3". I can not find "Vol 1 Issue 1" and I'm no sure if there was any more issues after 3.

Hello

Checking the crazy old stuff I found the os2tools_br files by @Macarlo. Those are Win32 exe programs that runs under Win-OS2 with Win32s for what I can see.

Are similar to an INF file describing in Portuguese some OS/2 software available.
I installed Win32s_1-25.zip 

- os2tools_br16a.zip Runs fine.
- os2tools_br.zip traps OS/2 in VW32S. If i run it with Odin it says I'm missing Internet Explorer 4.

I don't expect much since it is not a relevant content for me, but just in case someone has an idea to fix this or have the same issue just let me know.

Regards
