Hi Martin,

I was thinking of something along the lines of http://www.os2site.com/sw/

It appears that you are making it much too complicated to find anything with your reorganisation.  Use the 'keep it simple' idea, that way people can just look through the main division , see what is there and select what they want without needing a deep knowledge of OS/2.  Your system assumes that everyone has a deep knowledge of the inner workings of the OS (I have been using OS/2 since version 1.20 and I would be lost with your system.  Most people using it just want it to work, people just trying it out expect to be just able to select something to try without having to know the inner workings).

Would the java from the warp 4 merlin be the one you are looking for?  If so I can zip it from my merlin beta CD.

Martin, I think that was for Warp 3 which might explain odd results if you are running it on Warp 4 or its derivative.

For those interested the attached pdf should give the general requirements.

No, both iSCSI and fibre channel need an initiator which we don't have you should know that since you want ti use it.

Hi J,

From what you say I assume you are going to write the necessary OS/2 iSCSI initiator because as far as I know that is what you need to communicate between server and target - no initiator no service.

Excuse me for butting in but what is the difference between the i686 to pentium4 versions of any DLL and why is there the two versions?  All my computers have AMD Ryzen 3 processors and I have the RPM/YUM program but don't use it - if I need a DLL I just download the package and unpack it locally, extract what is needed and dump the other junk included with it.

Hi All,

I have a way round the browser problem.  I use an ITX board with Linux and a USB/HDMI KVM switch, most of which was salvaged from the local dump (I did buy the KVM new).

When our Firefox won't display a site I just switch over to the Linux unit and a few seconds later the site is up (always assuming NoScript allows it).

Are you trying to use this in a virtual machine?  If so how the mouse reacts depends on how well the additions have been programmed.

Hi Martin,

I didn't mean it as a  slur on you but as a reflection of what we see over here in Europe about the stupidity going on in US universities and their likely reaction to an outsider showing them up with you careful reorganising of one of their facilities.  In fact it was voiced by a friend of mine when I mentioned that the site was shutting down.

I would offer to host the site but my l;ink speed is rather slow and congestion is a killer as I found out when I  downloaded a new copy of Linux Mint.

Martin have you considered that your reorganising Hobbes files might be the cause of it being shut down because they had to have someone monitoring all the time rather than it just running with computer monitoring?

The answer, if you insist on using the old video card, is to try the Panorama VESA driver and if it works use it.  That is what I use on my Ryzen with built in graphics and it pushes 1920x1200 without problems.

Has anyone considered that AMD might not blindly follow Intel down this road?  I see this as an attempt by Intel to gain relevance.

This sounds very much like desperation on the part of Intel, they are seeing AMD taking over the desktop processor market with far better processors so they need something, anything, to get in front again.
