I'd say this one would make memorable internet terminal for some ones home ...

And make it so that it will randomly start punching those plates while one is Cruisin' the Internet!

:D

Ah!

Term brings into mind, TERM environmental variable, terminal emulation etc. for the Unix mind. But about the same. I was thinking while I'm testing things I might as well go directly for Ă…siftp or something like that what was on the list at Hobbes.

I'll just have to install first. Probably tomorrow or so ...

I assume that Netdrive is supposed to mount your Psion as a drive and it is not correctly mounting.
Wonder what would happen if you used a term program to try to connect?

This is getting so interesting, that I must move ArcaOS install a bit higher on my todo list :) I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "if you used a term program to try to connect?"

There's also http://www.littlespikeyland.com/psionlink/ that I assume would work.

Bookmarked for the rather last resort. I'm no fan of javanything.

Anyway I would rather see this to work with the Netdrive and plugin or other native way. But we will see how this spans out!

Thanks for the link. Somehow this hasn't come up in my searches.

I:\>help 21

SYS0021: The drive is not ready.

EXPLANATION: One of the following errors occurred:
o  The drive is empty.
o  The drive door is open.
o  The drive is in use.

ACTION: Do one of the following and retry the command:
o  Insert a diskette in the drive.
o  Close the drive door.
o  Wait until the drive is available.


Interesting ... Then why on same laptop with Win XP install I can connect with PsiWin with completely same procedure?

This does not compute.

Everything works. Cable and all with PsiWin for example ... so it's only this Netdrive/Plugin that ain't dance with us. But I have to install my ArcaOS again first to this bigge HDD I put into my laptop.

AFAIK there is no change in hardware but cannot remember from top of my head and have other things at the moment than searching for this. More memory or something by default, something like this.

And 115200 baud works fine.

Still I cannot find anything on "Error 21" ... would be nice to know what this is.

Anyone got working E-Mail address for Andrei? :D

I don't know if Privacy Badger runs with our browsers, but it's definitivly a good addition for the list of suggested (or better: must have) extensions.

This I don't know. But since talk was there I thought to mention it. Also FF multi containers addon is on of those what I usually recommend to people who are asking for some privacy and security tips and are not so tech savvy.

I don't think I can use any other browser after I got used to that little beauty! Makes life so much easier with all the different accounts and whatnots!

Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psion_Series_5
Ericsson marketed a rebadged version of the Series 5mx called the MC218.

Anyone has goode ol' Psion devices in use? I've my MC218 up and kicking still and would like to get that one work with my ArcaOS installation ... Before I changed the HDD in my laptop (for bigger one) and left the already "working" installation for backup, I did downloaded Netdrive from Hobbes and also Psion plugin for it.

I couldn't connect ro my MC218 ... I got error 21 every time I tried to connect ... anyone has any idea what might be wrong with this? Didn't find much by searching around.

Wrote an E-Mail to Andrei Porodko to the E-Mail address I found but it bounced back undelivered.

Would be nice to get this to work! And any assistance is very much appreciated!

Using NoScript is a bit encumbering at first, but by the time one gets those settings as they should be for the daily cruising ... until they make yet another layer of B$cripts that renders one site unusable until those settings are in place again. But mostly it's not that much bother for normal daily use, since we tend to go through only few sites anyway ..

But not exactly your average joe's thing to go by ... Privacy Badger would be my recommendation for non tech savvy person for daily browsing privacy.

Ivan, careful: AdblockPlus has a telemetry feature. Might be selling data to 3rd parties.. See Mantis ticket #0002397 @ ArcaNoae

Yeah! I stopped to use that some time ago ... nothing that has something remotely like that is no-no.

I happily paid that price for the updates and support. More about my support to them :D

But if there is something it's not bad thing that I know they have their lines open for me.

I thought those computers were pretty dirty, but subway stations are apparently many times cleaner than a home with pets.

My reality check about computer cleanliness was 20+ years ago when I was helping my friend to change olde network stuff to shiny new ethernets at this spice factory ... "No. We DO NOT do anything, but change those NICs" stated my friend :D

The amount of spices inside those machines in the production area would've spiced up whole lotta food!

It is handy for stuff that you don't mind being public such as GPL source code. Also you can encrypt stuff before putting it on a cloud.

Yeah. Make encrypted slices of compressed archive and stuff it into do-no-evil 10gb per slice ... or just make proper zip-bombs and put those in there and see how the beast likes them when crunching through your bits and bytes :D

In my opinion, the Personal Computer goes back to the way of usage he had in the late 80s and beginning 90s, before the WWW has been invented. It was a working tool for brain-workers and a toy for nerds. The "consumers" prefer tablet and smartphone. But I wonder that all the people accept the small screens. A big screen and overlapping windows alre an important advantage of Personal Computers.

Exactly the separation I was referring to. Shiny-swipey-thingies keep consumers consuming and interwebs keep bombarding them with the stiuff they "defititely need to buy" while those who value the information and content more that bling-and-whatnot will eventually gravitate to decentralised ways to get info/data/whatnot. If you ask me, HTTP protocol is FUBAR already and will never be same again. There is no going back to good old days of RFC 1945 ... but RFC 1436 cannot experience the same faith. Same goes to good old BBS'

Also we will see that only consumers are going to be online all the time and doers will eventually go back to the good old ways of 80's and 90's when we weren't online but just couple hours a day or so.

Or at least this has been the path I have seen many to take in last 10 or so years and more and more within last couple years. And I think it's good path.
