Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Re: Hobbes (Files) Reoganization

Hello.

- As far as I know Webdav is not planned.
- Registration is not working for the moment, but people can still upload files. (Nathan will check if some Anti-Spam or registration is required later)

EDIT: I notice on the main page mirror 'OS/2 Site Australia' is shown to be in the USA? I doubt it...
- I will give Nathan feedback about that. The site is called OS/2 Australia but it is hosted on Netherlands. I guess the mirror should be "Netherlands".

Maybe it's useful to add a comment function to each entry, maybe with some sections for stability, usability, limitations, better alternatives, special features, and others. or maybe some rating

amoung all the programs there are some gems and a lot of outdated, not working, problem causing, difficult to install or other "bad" programs.  I guess it would be helpful for everyone to get some clues ...
- Do you have more detail of you suggestion, any site that looks similar of what you want? ecsoft2.org has a comment area, but I'm not sure if you want something like that, or found a better example.
-Andreas, but if you have an example of "bad" programs, just post is here. If it dangerous, we can add more information or even remove it.

About the software upload:
What we discussed on this thread is that hobbes should have the latest version of every OS/2 software. No matter how old or new it is. To recognize old stuff I choose to standardize to the "latest update date" on the "short description" of the file, so people can easily see it is something from 1995 or 2024.

But there are exceptions to this rule:

1) Drivers: There are retro OS/2 users that require older drivers, because newer drivers will not work for their machines. There are cases when people prefer a working older driver because the newer remove/change support for their device.

2) Libraries and Runtimes: Sometimes software is locked to an specific version of a DLL runtime or library and it's good to keep those versions.

But there is still the necessity to have the older versions of all OS/2 software in a repository. I had encounter myself with users that don't want to use the latest by different reasons.  For the moment we have https://os2site.com/sw and http://cyberia.dnsalias.com/index.htm for them. But I hope in the future to work in a "Software Archive" repository with the older versions of each software.

Regards

This would go against Martin's decision to keep all old cruft.
Back at the time, he uploaded to Hobbes all old versions he could find.

 Thanks Martin and Nathan for keeping Hobbes alive! Very important resource for OS/2 users on the web.

Thanks!

EDIT: I notice on the main page mirror 'OS/2 Site Australia' is shown to be in the USA? I doubt it...

 Also was not able to register an account - got a generic 'something went wrong' error...

Hello

As you may noticed from the Groups.IO discussion, I will continue the "OS/2 File Repository Reorganization" with HobbesArchive.com that was created and hosted by Nathan Woodruff.

I will continue the hobbie of finding software that hobbes is missing and uploading it there and I will keep discussing here when I have doubts of where to located files.

All the OS2World Wiki file download links had been redirected to HobbesArchive.com. FYI: It was easy because I made all download links to hobbes as a wiki template. In the next days I will redirect the EDM/2 download links too. But sadly, redirecting the old news from the OS2World site is not that simple.

If there is any issues withe HobbesArchive.com I will talk it to Nathan to try to find any solutions.

Regards

I'd just like to comment:

I bought eComstation 2.1 before some couple of years before ArcaOS. When I eventually got ArcaOS, the first thing I did was migrate eSchemes and a few other programs that came with ECS - although if I recall correctly, it's called ThemeMGR in the installation files. For any who may be curious, it's worked perfectly for me across multiple releases of 5.0.x and now 5.1.


What were your steps to migrate eSchemes from eCS to ArcaOS?

See the above pics.

I have uploaded the Umicons bigicons theme. 

Umicons was created 15 years ago and last updated 4 years ago.
Original icons were created by www.mattaham.com  circa 2003

Most of these icons I modified or created to work with our schemes.

I did not change all the system icons.  What little  I did was a huge undertaking.
