It was great but i'm afraid I now need to use a split key keyboard to not get pain in my hands.

Here in Russia, we have a probiotic bacterias MPK-12 which fights pathogens of arthritis and some forms of cancer, known as Trichomonas (i.e. their form which lives in human blood).
MPK-12 is a breed similar to Milky Streptococcus which is quite good too. A local company, "Kvadro-Biotech" invented a method to grow them.

I can see what IP address that you and others are posting from so that gives me something to use in checking if I can get access to the list.

Exporting IP address lists from forums like OS/2 world and OS2.org seems to be a good idea.

These who active in the forums could receive full access to Hobbes...

If you are partial to the older Model F you might be able to pick up a new modern one from https://www.modelfkeyboards.com

The URL has been sent to https://curlie.org/en/Computers/Hardware/Peripherals/Keyboards/

Thanks a lot!

Yes, «hidden dependencies» are exists. Write caches in HPFS386 will work only with IBM LAN Server device drivers :(

It is a "clean-leaf" implementation of the same kernel.

The developers are available at IRC channel.

Programming / Rust to Plain C compiler is exists, really...
« on: December 29, 2018, 01:05:02 pm »
Reading our local forums I discovered a link to Rust compiler that works without LLVM:
http://github.com/thepowersgang/mrustc/

There are some books about the language:
http://www.allitebooks.com/?s=Rust

I suppose it's now possible to compile FireFox (at least compile).

What's a trademark?

Technically, trademarks and brands are just words that companies tells to their customers. Like IDs and numbers in a price list, but here lies roots of the problem known as "what is genuine and what is not".

If you will put a margarine in a box with picture of a cream-milk butter and start to sell it, people eventually will hate both you and your fake butter. Sooner or later, they will realize that it is a poison full of omega 6 trans fat (because it is a margarine from cotton oil, and omega 6 TF is a poison), and will start to buy 25%-fat baked milk and 50%-fat butter with a true vengeance (both contains a saturated fat, which keeps temperature of human body close to 36.6 C). They will treat your product as "not genuine" and will never buy it again.

To understand this particular example, you could read a book "Fat for Fuel" by Joseph Mercola. But there are same problems with other goods and services, from chocolate and green tea to clothes and shoes, from ballroom dances and relaxing music to... for example, software.

So... despite you would prefer to keep API compatibility, don't imitate other's trademark (including icons, fonts and colors) because people will feel that "this is not a genuine software".

It's a trademark. Don't touch other's trademark under any circumstances.

Unicomp, a company in Kentucky, still produces them.

The Nice WPS Enhancer shows that's possible to add functionality of the AMouse driver by an application, without changing the driver. Unfortunately its automatic focus switching to the window below the muse pointer doesn't work with the VirtalBox Addtions drivers.

Yes, it does not work because this program just adds message filter (also known as "input hook") and it works with Presentation Manager only.

If you open a file "MouseMapper_hook.cpp", you will see the function named "MouseMapper_MoveInputFocusWhenScrollingNode()" which switches input focus (the term "node" in this case means "a special part of program"). It just calls "WinSetFocus()".
