General Discussion / Search machines, what to use?
« on: September 13, 2020, 04:21:04 pm »
In the past weeks Google has changed some things, if this is policy I don't know. But I get sick in setting up cookies each time I visit Google. Today you get a screen with that you have to choose for following, cookies and alike. Not to mention that advertisements cookies are that numerous that about every one  don't even think to set them all on off. So you agree in the end because you get sick of it. For the last years Google search results are just bull, first advertisements, then the same but with only some search words in total different content, then things which look a like and may be after hundreds of pages with bullshit you can see some things which corresponds to the actual search. So I was not that happy last years, but this does closes for me the door. Internet should be free, but it isn't.

But, now what? I ended with DuckDuckGO and Qwant. Are there other search machines which are privacy friendly?

I don't know what influence this will have on testing and translating Java programs, not to mention setting up my space in English (translation Dutch to English) or in Dutch (translation English to Dutch). Currently I'm busy with something in Spanish, a language I don't speak or read. Have to see. Did test Google translation today. It still present itself as usual, no cooky shit yet. I also picked up Bing Microsoft translator. But both are evil in terms of privacy when it comes to search engine.

Multimedia / Re: Updated Uniaud32 build

You have to screen your config.sys on the position of this line, it must be one of the last in the device block. Everything uniaud needs has to be started before the line with uniaud.

I have added a new game to my Java corner. If you can call it a game is up to you. The program is called jTarot and it uses special cards.  jTarot is a tarot personal advisor. jTarot will do a "reading" for you when you need advice. You can read more on my page in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e173.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n173.htm.

There is a picture too;

Setup & Installation / Re: Startup.Cmd not executing
« on: August 05, 2020, 07:47:19 pm »
I don't have a startup.cmd. Everything which has to start up is in the config.sys. Startup.cmd is just a command file and acts as every other program which has to be started manually or is started with run in the config.sys. I don't know what you have in the startup.cmd file, but see if it can migrate to the config.sys file.

You can read that in the manual, look for SYS2028 and SYS2029. I have a Dutch manual, so I can't tell you on what page, but I think its  chapter 15.

Setup & Installation / Re: Windows 3.1 inside OS/2 won't start
« on: July 28, 2020, 11:42:09 pm »
Progman.exe is on my system only called in windowed session, not in full screen.  Besides that, there is no information to go on other than that windows 3.1 doesn't start. This tells me that you don't have OS/2 full version. The full versions have WinOS2. There are OS/2 distributions which lack WinOS2 and where you have to install your existing Windows 3.1 in OS/2, but in that case your going to work with an OS2 version which will show more than a few problems on motherboards from the past twenty years. For what I remember is that the OS/2 installation without WinOS2 over an existing Windows 3.1 was not one without troubles.
So you have to give more information about your OS/2 version and what you did.

Today I have added an utility called JPDF Tweak. Got the link from Ivan, thank you, I just saw that this was 5 years ago. Time flies ;-(. I did some testing and wrote a page about it for my Java corner. You can find more about JPDF Tweak on this page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e169.htm and in Dutch on this page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n169.htm.

I have some pictures, this is one of them;

I had downloaded two spreadsheet programs long time ago. Today I have run both spreadsheets. Together with the already published Jeks gives a nice view which is best. Verdict: none. Two spreadsheets use USA notation for decimal point and one uses the European version. All have parts which don't work. In Jeks you can make your own formula, that could be interesting. In Clean Sheets you have better layout. In between, if you can say it in that way, sits Sharp Tools. All have the trouble that you have enter the cell references manually instead of dragging it with the mouse. Sharp Tools can handle empty cells,  Clean Sheets can not, you have to fill an empty cell with a zero otherwise you can't use the sum formula without error. So all spreadsheet programs have something which doesn't work or is even absent. All spreadsheet programs does have something special. But all are no match for Lotus, Open Office, Staroffice or Mesa. And then we have not mentioned Windows 3.1 programs and DOS programs.

After this intro, I have added the spreadsheet program Sharp Tools to my Java website. You can read a little more on this page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e167.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n167.htm.

I have added a new program to my Java website. Its again an "office" program, its called BeaGTex and it is an editor for Latex documents. You can read more on my English page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e166.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n166.htm. The program is in English and in German and this is hard coded in the program, so despite language file no Dutch or some other language.

Applications / Re: Where to download Gnuplot
« on: July 17, 2020, 11:54:42 am »
Sourceforge has going from bad to worse when it comes to looking for a program and with downloading. Advertisements seems to be more important and also you don't get what you asked for. In case of download problems pick direct the download site instead of letting the system choose even if there is only one site. I experience the same problems with Java programs, special then when they are a little older or not frequently visited. Be informed that this is a deliberate action of the new owners.
