I'm also trying to find a backup of the OS/2 compuserve forums:

General Discussion / Re: Hobbes directory structure re-organization
« on: May 31, 2013, 03:18:24 pm »

I understand your points, but I was offered an opportunity to improve hobbes and I think I must try at least to take the opportunity.
I take notice of the points:

1) What about the sites linking hobbes files?
2) We must encourage the file contributors to upload the files in the right places.
3) We need more active administration/moderation of the site. (to organize files)
4) Search is a very important service of the site.
5) If a migration/update happens, don't lost any files.

Doug, do you know the skills of the people involved at hobbes today? or you are just telling about your experience some time ago. I don't think we must disqualify nobody, specially when it is a community effort and nobody is paying hobbes to be online. 

My general question remains open for everyone. Do you want to help (or at least try) to reorganize hobbes directory structure to have a more modern site? Please check the structure I created and give me feedback about the structure.


General Discussion / Hobbes directory structure re-organization
« on: May 30, 2013, 11:22:11 pm »

I'm proposing a file structure reorganization at hobbes. I will like to have some discussion on the forum of what can be improved on the hobbes directory structure to store files.

I currently made a draft on Freemind about the structure based on the current one that hobbes use. I'm sharing this files for you to comment.  Fell free to modify it and present any option, or give any comments.


Programming / WPS Classes - UML Design
« on: May 30, 2013, 12:48:57 am »
Here goes my first try to document the WPS classes in UML, using ArgoUML.

I still need to go deeper with the classes. My UML is very rusty, any suggestions if I'm doing it ok will be appreciated.

I just change the file and removed TCP/IP, MPTN and MMPM/2 to have a more general view.

I want to know at which level DART and DIVE works, and if it can be interpreted on a graphic like this.

Reply from "Less success with MP3 audio stream at Warpstock Europe 2013..."

About the MP3 audio stream I happen to connect to it the first day (Friday). I had the luck that friday was here a holiday and I have some problems sleeping that day, so I joined at 4:00am local time.

That day the MP3 stream worked fine and I think that one of the best presentation that day was from David Azarewicz (Why does ECS miss feature X?). On that presentation he took some time at the end to do some brainstorm, took questions from the IRC channel  and also motivated the audience to make drivers for eComStation.  Motivating people is hard and sometime developers had taken so much heat, but lets remember that in this community the developers are the one that have more recognition. So that was an excellent point that David did at the end of that conference.

About the rest of the days, I was not able to connect as long as I want to, so I don't know how the MP3 streaming went.

The only suggestion that I have is try to bring more content to the world. We need more videos and documentation available for eCS-OS2, and putting someone to film the presentations is not hard. I don't care if it not 100% professional, but today an intern with a camera and PC hooked with Google+ Hangouts can do a very good broadcast on the web and record it to YouTube on the same time . It will not affect my pride to see a Mac/Win/Lin machine on a Warpstock doing the streaming, I'm no longer a teenager :) . Or it does not even matter if it is live streaming, just if in some weeks someone can upload the videos to YouTube for the rest of the world to see it.

Or maybe the people of the audience can volunteer in turns to film the presentation on different hours. If I have the way (sorry, money related) to be on WarpStock I will be honored to film myself the presentations and put them online. The presentations I hear were very good the content was very relevant.

On Friday there were about 113 connection attempts and on average 15 people tuned in during the day. On Saturday we had 40 visitors.

This was very good news. I really appreciate that this year we were able to have live audio streaming on WarpStock Europe and I enjoy it. I hope we can have more live streaming on the future and hopefully more YouTube videos. It was a very good friday for me and I sleep early that day.

Programming / What about the EDM/2 Wiki? - Help !!
« on: May 27, 2013, 05:13:02 pm »
Intro: The EDM/2 wiki is the source for OS/2 and eComStation developers.  (

I wanted to take a little while to share my thoughts about EDM/2. For the last year I had been updating it and getting authorization from the authors to move more content into it (and allow derivative works too).

I still have some pending tasks on the site (like finishing posting some books) and some specific articles I keep finding around. But I'm starting to see that I have  (or don't know) no more sources of what I can include there, so it feels like now I'm starting to squeeze the rock :)

So it seems that I'm going to move to other part of the EDM/2 Wiki that I think we need to improve. That is the "The OS/2 API project", which tries to be an open documentation source of the OS/2-eCS components.  Since I want to align this with "the dream", I will start trying to document as much of Workplace Shell (WPS) as possible.

HELP: I need to help on the following:

1) Let me know what the EDM/2 is missing. I can link it or/and request the author permission to be republished on the wiki.

2) You can also help me with the Wiki. Ask for an account to Adrian (netlabs) ( and help me organizing whatever you see wrong on this pages.

3) Any other idea is welcome with the objective to have more open resources for OS2-eCS developers on the EDM/2.

4) I need support/suggestions/recommendations from WPS experts or anybody that knows it better than me. I do not have deep technical knowledge about WPS and I need suggestion to improve the documentation.

It does not matter if you have one hour at saturday, or only 15 minutes. You can help on the wiki with little time that you have.

Thanks Pete.

I didn't notice that Java 7 was required for this.

I read on slashdot the news of a Java developer that created an open source working Office Suite in 30 days.

So, I got to try it out on OS/2-eCS. I grabbed the MacOS version and unzipped it.

I run the installer with "java -jar bundle.jar".

The installer runs but it does not allow me to install because it gives me a "Joeffice s set up to be installed
 to X:\programs\joeffice which does not belong to any of the file system roots."

Any ideas?

Hi Neil

I'm interested on that on one too. I will write you an email to know the conditions.

I'm also interested on OS/2 in foreign languages that I had never seen, like arabic, greek, thai or turkish (and maybe others).

I have some Warp Server 4 Trial CDs (I think spanish) to exchange if someone is interested.

¿Anybody knows on which part of XWorkplace can be added the description for this classes?

Check the screenshot to understand my question better.

I found it very interesting that a WPS class like "WPHwManager" got replaced by a open source one by Lars Edman.

I didn't found "WPS Class List" (XWPClassList class) icon on eComStation 2.1, I installed XWorkplace 1.0.9 over it so I can found the "WPS Class List" icon.

After that I installed and replaced the class as the instrucciones. I'm attaching some screenshots just for the fun of it.

I installed it on eCS 2.1,  and connecting to the WPA-PSK keeps working fine. The wireless adapter is running with GenMac (Intel 2200 WLAN).

Is there any specific thing that needs to be tested?
