Internet / Re: New Browser Delay Discussion
« on: April 15, 2022, 03:13:32 am »
Is it just me,  or are others  starting to doubt there will ever be a new OS/2 Browser?

I have my doubts too, and the lack of information/transparency is disappointing.

They do, just made another donation using credit card.

Well, I'm in all four groups, plus:
Group 5: people who use gs for merging pdf's and adding text to pdf's

Had already tried with cmd /c but that results in "invalid expression".
Thanks for pointing me to "start view cmdref start", I now added /c /min to start and it works.

Programming / Rexx close cmd.exe
« on: November 12, 2021, 03:54:31 pm »

I'm running this from a VX-Rexx program;

address cmd "start D:\GS\GS9.15\BIN\gsos2 -dQUIET -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o d:\PDF\modified.pdf d:\PDF\ -f d:\PDF\source.pdf"

and it brings up a cmd window that remain open after the script has finished.

Would prefer not to see that cmd window at all or at least get it closed automatically.
Have searched without finding what I need so I hope I have not overlooked the obvious :)

Thanks Dariusz,
yes, I had a quick look at RSYNC but before testing I'd like to know more about what is being used these
days by others. At least I'm not uncomfortable with REXX :) and would like to see the script.   

Utilities / Backup solutions
« on: October 27, 2021, 06:24:17 pm »
Looking for a backup solution that after an inital full backup can be configured to only back up new and
changed files in futural back ups. (Backing up to an external SATA or USB3, both JFS.)
I have PM Backup Suite but cannot find any setting for backing up only new or changed files.
Any recommendtions?

I need a reminder now and then, possibly others do as well......
Anyway, I just donated again.

To me it is quite obvious that Roderick is spending a lot of time trying to make people
donate to BWW. Thanks to his reminders I have donated a few times and will do so again today.

While there are various comments in this thread I do not agree with, it does in no way stop me from
continuing to donate. Hopefully others in a position to donate see it this way too.

Thanks a lot Andreas, works like a dream.

Thanks guys,

I need to find out which files are missing so I think the parameter 1000*.pdf would simply list files numbered
10001.pdf up to 10009.pdf and not tell me that ie. 10004.pdf is missing

I believe REXX can do it, (but can I do it? ;) )

Utilities / Find missing files
« on: April 18, 2021, 07:04:23 pm »

I have some directories with lots of pdf-files like this:
The files are supposed to be consecutively numbered and this case only four files in the directory and it's easy to see that 10004.pdf is missing.
However, in a directory with thousands of files it's hard to manually find the missing ones.

Does anyone know of a program that takes "start file number ie. 10001.pdf" and "end file number ie. 10500.pdf" as
parameters and lists the missing ones?

Storage / Re: eSata
« on: March 23, 2021, 09:19:38 pm »
Hi Martin,

Not annoying at all, I appreciate your work at :)

Had no need install any drivers, the external SATA uses same driver as the internal SATA disks.

Had to create a volume when connected via USB as Airboot refused to boot when an empty/unpartioned disk was connected through eSATA.
After creating the volume and rebooting, using the eSATA cable, the drive behaves like any other internal SATA disk.
