I tried a website called SSL Server Test to test my website, and I can now see that several browsers will have problems. Here is the test page:

My solution is to leave some pointers to the http://www.blondeguy.com/ website for OS/2 users to use with Firefox 45 and 38 for OS/2. Other versions and plaforms work fine and can use the secure website https://www.blondeguy.com

I do not know what is different about my website compared to others that do work.

Yes. That's what I changed today.

It works in our Firefox 31ESR, but not in Firefox 45 SUa2. It also works in iPhone Safari and iPad Firefox. I've set up the redirect in plesk, which has the server send a 301 message with the redirect. I still have many corrections to make to the website, but I'd like to figure out this security problem if I can.

I was fooling with the server settings. There was a window where http://www.blondeguy.com was visible. It's gone now, and none of the website will show in Firefox 45 SUa2. I can verify that Firefox 31 has no problems accessing https:/www.blondeguy.com, even correctly identifying my certificate.

It's a website hosted by cruzio. They let me control it using plesk, but I'm having trouble configuring secure http, apparently.

OK, I tried with Qupzilla. It works fine to search from google or from duck duck go.

Internet / Google search problem

I'm hoping to get some help figuring out a problem I have with Google search.

If I search for the term "OS/2 Consulting", the Blonde Guy consulting page comes up as item number one. If I click on it in Firefox (SUa2) for OS/2, nothing happens. If I click on it in Safari for iPhone, the page comes up as expected.

What is going on?

Hardware / Re: ArcaOS - OS/2 on an Lenovo Yoga 12 + Touch + Stylus

Hi Martin, Sigurd,

Since the webcam is working with my UVC Webcam Support for OS/2 programs (WebSee),  I expect it to work with my "UVC Microscope Viewer for OS2 (UvcScope) too.
These programs use the USBCALLS interface i.e. USBECD is not used. Isochronous Transfers are only used by the webam i.e. not used for pen and touch support.

Wim.

I noticed this webcam software and I got it to work on two of my laptops. Indeed, iso-synchronous USB transfers are needed to make this webcam support work. I was not able to make webcam support work for Arca Noae USB 12.x, because iso-synchronous transfers are not implemented. However, the webcam software works on both laptops using the Arca Noae USB 11.17 USB stack.

I think Vio output is not defined for a larger screen window. So to really do this right, you would need to extend the Vio family. But if some programs write to the buffer themselves, you would need to monitor that, too.

Both of these things could be done by code inserted into the program's space using the registry entry User->SYS_DLLS->LoadPerProcess. You write your code into a DLL and gain control using the DLL initialization code.

Each ArcaOS copy is personalized by Blonde Guy in cooperation with Arca Noae.

You should have been at Warpstock this year. We had 8 model 77 PS/2 absolutely loaded machines that you could have taken home. It was the biggest giveaway ever.

Hardware / Re: PCIe parallel port card
« on: December 17, 2019, 03:23:32 am »
The chip seems to say CH382 on it. The entire chip case is 6mm square, and the print is tiny. The box says WCH382. There are more numbers, but they are very difficult to read. I think Martin is correct about the Vendor ID/Chip ID.

Hardware / PCIe parallel port card
« on: December 16, 2019, 06:23:59 pm »
I've got an IOCrest PCI-Express parallel port card WCH 382 which I wanted to use for a second parallel port.

I think this ought to work with PRINT01.SYS, but so far, I do not have any success. I use /V so I can see the one parallel port, but no second port appears, so I guess the card is not recognized.

I have tried the updated driver on OS/2 World
https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Updated_PRINT01.SYS

I have attached a pci output for the computer.

Setup & Installation / Re: Partitioning Recommendations
« on: December 14, 2019, 03:00:04 pm »
I don't think there is a best partitioning scheme for everyone. I build systems for people, and for me the following works best.

X: 1.75 GB FAT16 Maint - the ArcaOS installer environment, modified to run maintenance programs
C: 10 GB JFS  ArcaOS and programs
J:  10 GB JFS  ArcaOS and programs
K:  10 GB JFS  ArcaOS and programs
P:  10 GB JFS  ArcaOS and programs
D: 1948 GB Data

I have 4 ArcaOS partitions because I experiment a lot. The Home directory is on each boot drive, but Home data points to various places on the D: drive. UNIXROOT is on the boot drive as well.

The D: drive is mirrored using rsync onto one or more backup computers, and also onto two external drives that may be off-site. Backups of the ArcaOS boot drives are on the D: drive.

I also have a modified ArcaOS installer on a USB thumb drive

O: 1.75 GB ArcaOS installer
U: (rest of USB stick disk space) Stick Data

I think you are right about a bounty for NVMe. We already have an open source AHCI driver. That could provide some basis for a device driver programmer to implement NVMe, but have all the OS/2 support stuff already coded and tested.

If you would like to know how much one of these costs shipped to your location, I suggest following the links. I'm using ebay to handle international shipping, so shipping charges are really up to them.
